We purchased this rug for our living area, and it looks great and appears to be well made. The brown border is light rather than dark, but it is still very attractive. The rug does have a strong odor--kind of like tea--but I suspect that will go away over time.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The seagrass is gorgeous, with lots of subtle variations in color. The border of the rug I received was not a dark chocolate brown, like the rug in the photo. It is, as a previous reviewer commented, a light milk chocolate brown. It still looks great though, as the light brown blends into our hardwood floors.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The rug appears to be very well made. It won't be used in a high traffic area of our home, so time will tell about its durability. The fabric on the back of the rug is ok, if a little flimsy, but it works. We have the rug anchored with furniture, so I don't even think a rug pad is necessary.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
