"Good" Rug, But Not "Great"
Wanting Better Quality from Olney, MD– Verified Buyer
An[...](heretofore called "competitive vendor's rug") braided rug we have has been in a high-traffic area for 9 years with no braids coming loose and perfect water repellency. We were looking for a similar rug for a newly built area nearby to "match" our existing (competitive vendor's) rug. That's why we ordered this rug we found through an Internet search. The rug LOOKS like a close match. The rug FITS nicely in the area on our new hardwood floors. The quality, though, is not as good as the (competitive vendor we cannot name in this review) rug. This rug is already suffering from pieces of braid thread popped up from a chair or the dog snagging the rug, and we cannot seem to get one of the edges to lay flat. The (competitive vendor's) rug has been dog-worn and furniture-worn with nary a snag in 9 years. To send this American Legacy rug back is far more effort than it's worth so we're keeping it, but will probably look elsewhere when it is time to replace it. PS: It is rather poor that our reviews are edited to omit competitive vendors' names since an honest review includes noting who else has a better product.
I should have purchased just one more.
