Great rug for our needs
J.G. from Odenton, MD – Verified Buyer
We bought this rug in order to protect our hardwood floors under our dining room table. We have two young children so basically the rug is being used as a dropcloth. We did get a quote from a carpet retailer who would have charged us almost the same amount as the rug but we would have ended up with a carpet remnant with no design, ugly colors from which to choose and we would have had to steam clean it when it became too dirty. The Spinx rug is perfect for us because it can be hosed down if need be and the best part is the design and colors. We've had the rug for almost a month now and plenty of food plus a full glass of milk has dropped on it and the rug still looks great. I'm contemplating ordering another for our front porch outside. The carpet is so inexpensive and the shipping was free so it's difficult to find a reason not to buy one. I will add that we did purchase the carpet pad to go underneath the rug but we are shopping around for the padding that resembles a somewhat thick felt fabric. We have friends that learned the hard way that some rugs on hardwood floors can leave the small woven design of the rug backing on the floor. They advised the felt-type rug padding so we're on the lookout for one though we haven't tried too hard yet. We're extremely satisfied with the rug; have recommended the rug and website to friends, and would purchase it again.

So, I bought this rug and held my breath until it got here. Its Perfect! I have three young boys and needed a rug for my dining room right off the kitchen. Knowing it is going to get trashed I wanted an indoor outdoor that I can take out in the summer and hose off. The colors are right on, actually more vibrant in person. This site has the best price by far, and their zoom feature really lets you see the pile. Its soft under foot and in no way has that hard sisal/jute feel. I have the chairs on the edges to flatten it out, no weird smell, and my husband already noticed its warmer in here which is what I was also hoping for. I got a rug pad for underneath as well. Delivery was quick, really cant complain at all! Dont be afraid!
Mix between modern and antique
Linda from Baton Rouge, LA – Verified Buyer
I love the rug; HOWEVER...some things to know before buying. The green is a cool looking shade but a unique color. Be sure that you don't expect the green to match another green already in the room. I had bought this for my son's room because it seemed so lively, but moved it to my bedroom because it is much to mature and a little old world for a child. I recommend the rug highly; but I would buy the rug first before painting and decorating the room. I would easily go with a simple cream color wall.

I saw this rug several times online in homes of bloggers. When we bought our mountain home, I knew it was exactly what I wanted to go on our covered outdoor room. I have had it almost six months now and it looks as good as it did when I got it. My outdoor seating has apple green cushions and looks great with the rug. If you are on the fence - go ahead and get it! You won't regret it!
Lovely Outdoor Rug
Donna from LOS ANGELES, CA – Verified Buyer
I decided to try buying an outdoor rug on line - to save time and there is a gigantic collection. I ordered the round version of this carpet for my small deck upstairs. The colors compliment the colors of the house and are true to the photo online. We actually vacuum it and it has stayed nice looking so far. Have not had rain (cause we live in S. Calif) but we pray for it and I hope the rug will stand up and clean up nicely even after a rain.
Well constructed, seems to be good quality
John from Baltimore, MD – Verified Buyer
We've had this rug in place for about 3 or 4 months, and it's holding up well. Looks good...colors in the pics online are pretty accurate compared to what it actually looks like.
Love these rugs!
Kate from MA
I ordered two matching rugs in the largest size they have. Both are in my big living room -- and they look great. I didn't want to spend a lot but I wanted a large accent piece. I got it with these rugs. Great purchase. It did take quite a while for the order to get filled (stayed in warehouse for about 5 days) but once they were shipped, they arrived in a timely fashion.
Great for entryway
Shanna from richmond, VT – Verified Buyer
This rug is very cute! it is kind of flat and not very soft, so it is perfect for an entryway. the colors are very pretty. I have had it at my front door for a few weeks and it does not seem to attract dirt despite the light background
Amy from Greensboro, NC – Verified Buyer
This is a rug I'm using in my Kitchen nook. The looping is tight and seems like it should hold up well in our active household. It came rolled tightly but after putting a few hand weights on the inside edge the crease is gone in 3 days. Not bad. The cream color is the main color I thought it would be more green. Still very modern and pretty.
christine from fairdale, KY – Verified Buyer
Very nice and it's holding up well. I use it in an area where my dogs stay and it cleans up beautifully. Love the fact that you can hose it off if it gets gross. I haven't had to do that but I'm glad I have that option. It's nice enough for indoor use especially in a high traffic area.
