I agree with the previous reviewer...this rug is much more attractive in person! I saw this area rug at the store and fell in love with it. I was at Target picking up other smaller items for my new apartment but couldn't justify spending the money on this rug when I didn't NEED it. Well, I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I went back to the store a few days later and bought the smallest and more affordable size for my kitchen. I am so happy with my purchase! The colors are so rich which really adds a lot to the space. I have only owned it for a few weeks, so I can't comment on how well it wears yet, but it's in a high traffic spot and will be a true test of its durability. I am confident it will last a while as it truly seems to be a well made product.
In fact, the reason I am back checking it out again is to see what other sizes this rug comes in. I am debating buying another small one if it comes in the size I'm looking for.
if i hadn't seen this rug at the store first, i never would have been so attracted to it. the online picture doesn't do this rug justice. the colors are so great.....so many in it and such deep, rich colors, it would be easy to change the color scheme of the room anytime and have the rug still have a place. one thing that i really like is the fact that it's NOT wool. we've had both polyester and wool rugs in our home. the wool rugs tend to shed wool fibers so the hardwood always looks dusty. our very inexpensive polyester rug lived under our kitchen table for years and withstood much abuse from our toddlers and canines. the polyester fibers don't "hold" liquid, where as wool absorbs it. if that could be an issue for you in your home, i would choose any polyester rug over wool. this rug is lovely. don't know how it will wear, but i'm sold.
