50/50 but worth the gamble
 from DSM, IA,  Jan 3, 2013

This is the third (and fourth) rug I've purchased from overstock (the first two were different rugs). They've all been good value/quality, and ship fast. So, the first time I bought this jute rug I was shocked at how great it looked! Perfect neutral, light colored jute rug. Absolutely no smell, it was smoother and softer than I expected, looks just like an expensive jute rug from the store that ends with "-ottery Barn". I was so impressed I bought a second one. And...the second rug is NOT like the first. It smells like dirt/rope, the texture is much rougher, and it's actually a tiny bit thicker than the first one. The color is a little more grayish-brown too (still a very neutral light color, just not exactly the same as the first) and looks/feels/smells exactly like rope. The tags and packaging were the same, so I chalk it up to natural variations in the material this rug is made of (or maybe this variation is the reason Overstock has these rugs?). It works for me, because I put the second one under a kitchen table. But, I can see how some would give this a bad review if they got the more "rustic" version of this rug. Still, it's so cheap you can't complain. So, it's kind of a crapshoot but, even version #2 looks really good.
