Looks beautiful, but sheds & pulls
 from Central Mass.,  Nov 17, 2012

This rug is absolutely beautiful & the colors are just what I was looking for. The red is a deep garnet color. The background color of the rug is a beige color (looks very gold online, but isn't that yellow in real life). I have the rug in a high-traffic area so I was happy to have a beige background so little areas of dirt & scuffs wouldn't be obvious. Very unfortunately, the quality of this rug doesn't match its beauty. It sheds a LOT. We have fuzz all over our clothes, house, & furniture. It needs to be vacuumed frequently (ie twice a week) & the house has to be frequently dusted. I could handle this if it were the only problem with this rug (i DO have it in a high-traffic area after all), but my bigger issue is that this rug pulls. After two days of having it in our living room, I started noticing what I thought were tufts of lint. When I got closer to these tufts though, I noticed that these were pulls in the wool. Mind you, although this is a high-traffic loving room, it's not like we had been having a dance party on this rug. We walked on it, put our feet on it while sitting on our furniture, & sat on it---and there are hundreds of little pulls that are pretty obvious in certain lighting & stick up, making the rug look raggy. I know we got a good deal on this rug, but for $487 I'm very disappointed in the quality. Despite all this, I'm going to keep the rug, but only because it would be a huge pain to return, I love the colors & don't think I could find another rug that matches my room so well, & I'm pretty sure that if I exchanged it for another of these rugs (if any are still available), it would do the same thing. I probably wouldn't recommend this rug to a friend. Even though it looks beautiful, I feel that if you spend almost $$$ on a rug, it shouldn't show signs of heavy wear with just 2 days of light use.
