I have ordered a leather rug before from O. That rug is a red leather runner, and we love it, but at first it was kind of hard to walk on barefoot because there were stiff bumps on it. I kept it because I loved the look and color and it is holding up fantastically. The rug has sofened to the feet over time and no longer catches you by surprise! It does need a runner underneath if you don't have furniture over it to hold it down. When I received this particular rug( brown 8 x 11) I walked on it right away ( after taking deep breaths to smell the leather ;)) and it is much softer to the feet than the last one! Yea! Same quality, so I know it will last, just softer! Wish you could see what it looks like in my room.... You would order it!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very close. My rug has the appearance of a light roast coffee. It's a pretty dark brown, but there are lighter browns weaved in! It is a true brown... not camel, not reddish, not greenish. Would look good w/ any of those colors because it will not clash.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Came in a thick bag and the metal twist tie almost made me go get the pliers. It is a thinner rug, so it is folded in half and rolled. It comes about 3.5 feet long all coiled up. The leather is soft! It feels really good under my feet. Kind of wakes them up, but does not feel hard or stiff. I am very pleased as it will be in my bedroom pulling in the colorado look! It looks awesome! and did I mention the smell? I love the smell of leather, and this has it to a T! The rug is weaved pretty tightly w/ some pretty thick brown string. It looks like it will hold up well. The ends are folded over and sewn, so they have a slightly thicker lip at the ends, but nothing someone would trip over.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The photo does not do the quality justice. Do not be afraid to order this product!
