Nicer than expected

After spending a ridiculous amount of money on a rug for our living room, I decided to take a chance on something that was considerably less money for the dining room. I hate sacrificing quality, so I started doing research, and came across this rug. I saw that it was indoor/outdoor, which concerned me because I thought the texture might look cheap. The reviews were good, and the colors were right, so I decided to take a chance. When the rug was delivered, I could not believe how nice it was. I don't know what I was expecting, but the rug exceeded my expectations. There is a berber quality, but not the kind you would put in a basement. It's more about the weave, which I is done very nicely. It's a very low pile, and fairly thin, so you may want to put a rug pad done underneath. The colors are absolutely beautiful, and somewhat accurate to the image. If anything, it's slightly more muted, and the background is a lighter beige. Also, there is less of a yellow/gold undertone throughout. Overall, the rug looks beautiful in our dining room. When my mother in law came over, she could not believe the price. It looks much more expensive than it is. Does it look like a hand woven wool rug from Nepal? No. However, for a synthetic it is very well done...and you can't beat the price. If you are looking for something that is really nice looking, but will not break the bank, this is a great find.

I bought this rug in the 7'10" x 10'10" size, and it covers my living room beautifully. I was looking for a rug that would add a nice design element to the room, with neutral colors, that would be easy to clean, and this fits the bill perfectly. The colors are just as they are shown in the picture. The low pile of the rug makes it really easy to vacuum, and because it is a tight weave, it doesn't shed at all like some rugs out there do. It is also soft on the feet, in spite of not being shaggy or thick. Haven't had any major spills or anything on it, but the few little messes that have been made on it have cleaned up rather easily, I think again due to the low pile. Overall, you can't beat this rug for the price. Most rugs of this size cost at least twice as much, usually more.

I read all the reviews prior to purchase.I was pleasantly surprised about the quality of the carpet.It is thicker than I thought. It does require a non slip carpet backing so it will stay in place.I purchased the runner for our entryway.I only wish it would have come in 10' length.The colors are muted as stated in the other reviews.The runner blends in nicely with our décor.I placed heavy items on the ends of the carpet over night to prevent it from curling up.That worked well (Due to being rolled up for delivery)Was delivered at lightening speed.I am pleased with our purchase and plan to buy additional rugs for our home. We have pets and lots of swimming activities with our grandchildren. We needed something that is easy to take care of but does not look cheap.. This fits the bill
Beautiful Rug at a great price

This is a great rug for the price. The colors are neutral enough to go with just about any color scheme and it is very soft for an outdoor rug. We have a dog so I didn't want something that was too plush or fancy because he like to place with his toys on the living room floor and I needed something that would clean up easy if he got dirt or drool on it. This does not look like an outdoor rug- it looks like an expensive area rug but it holds up well to a high traffic area and it is low maintenance; just a quick light scrub with a sponge or non-abrasive cleaning pad and it looks like nothing was ever there. I guess a rug pad underneath would make it feel more padded but I haven't used one yet and I love the way it feels underfoot.

This is a beautiful rug. I am using it inside, and it is very soft to walk on. The colors are muted light and dark grey, soft mustard and tan. My only real complaint is that the rug arrives rolled with the inside around the packing tube, so that it unrolls easily and is right side up, but you have one end that wants to curl up. I have some furniture sitting on the edge and it is gradually going down. I do wish it was available in larger sizes, too. It's a great rug at an excellent price, especially if you can get it when it is a daily deal.

This looks great in our family room. Love how it pulls our grey couch and brown furniture together. Considering getting a rug pad for extra comfort.
Sarah from Carrollton, TX– Verified Buyer
I'm very happy with this rug. I got the 6x9 size and it's perfect with our sofa and love seat. It's a thin rug, not plush, but that works for me because it should be easier to keep clean. As other reviewers said, the color is not as vibrant as it appears in the picture, but i think that actually makes it look nicer. It shipped super fast, too!
Great for Price
Shanna from MARLBORO, NY– Verified Buyer
This was an awesome buy and it is a great rug for the price. If I had paid retail-value for this rug, I would have been upset at the thin-ness and at the "painted" look of the design. However, I am extremely happy with the rug given how much I paid for it. The colors are calming and seem much more muted in person than in the picture.

I love the look of this area rug and so far (about 2 months) it has been easy to keep clean. Keep in mind I am using it in my dining room which is located next to my kitchen where my 2 dogs go in and out of the house. They bring plenty of dirt in the house even with the runners I have in the kitchen. If the dirt is dry it vacuums right up. I hope it continues to hold up well to my pups over time. I think this is a good quality product and I would definitely recommend it.

Was looking for runners because I have massive expanse of laminate floors and a large dog who spends his day in and outside so I needed something to help with the paw tracks and to be thin enough to pass under all the doors...this certainly fits the bill. If you are expecting plush, this is not for you. I believe it is listed as indooroutdoor, whatever, it was within my price range as I like to change it up often. I thought colors were true.
