Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WestCoastFloridian nice style but poor wear and tear
I ordered this and two 5x8 Arcadian style rugs but I wish they were made of more durable sythetic material, not only cause the cost would be more reasonable but because they would last longer. I knew wool would shed like crazy and need routine almost daily vacuuming but the catch 22 is that it doesn't allow the rug to last long without looking worn or torn. The ironic thing is that my runner held up a lot better then my two 5x8 area rugs. Usually I am known for keeping everything clean and looking like new since I take very good care of my things. However, after only 3 years I'm selling at only a tenth the cost I paid and getting synthetic fiber rugs instead. :(

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by franklymydear Disappointing
I've never purchased a rug on line before and after reading the reviews here I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.. I REALLY wanted to love this rug. I bought the terra cotta color in the 5'x8' because I wanted the warm golds and earthy reds in my entry way. The photo is MUCH prettier than the real rug. Part of the problem is that the rug is cut from the largest size and the pattern looks all wrong in the smaller size. But the biggest disappointment is that the colors are very flat and two dimensional, no pretty shading and depth like in the photo. Just reddish brown and tan, that's it. Quality seems okay. Will be returning :(

I had been admiring this rug for several months online and in the catalog but I hesitated because I was unsure if the blue areas in the rug would be the robin's egg shade that I wanted and I didn't want he hassle of returning a big 8'x11' rug. Finally, I decided to bite the bullet because I couldn't find anything I liked better. I'm so glad I took the leap because the rug is gorgeous and the blue areas are the perfect robin's egg I needed to blend with the rest of my living room decor. I love the organic asymmetry of the design which integrates well with my Asian inspired theme.

The colors were not even close to what was in the color catalog or online. I ordered beige because it showed green and a peach shade with some white outlines - and that was in three different "windows" online. The rug was three shades of brown with beige outlines - the background was dark beige and there was no green at all. I thought I was okay because I had a brand new monitor with great resolution, but apparently it made the colors look a lot better than they really were. I'm returning the rug, and I have to pay the return postage. Why can't I return it to Home Depot?

I bought this rug a year ago and I too was surprised when I saw the gold leaf outline. What I noticed this morning is that in artificial light it does look cream. When the sun light provides more light than your indoor lighting the gold becomes prominant. As stated previously the accent color is more of a soft green than blue...which is exactly what I wanted. It is thick, plush, and has held up well under the kitchen table. Initially there was some fuzzing but it did not last terribly long. I am considering buying another one for another room.

I bought the beige 8'x11' rug. I have no qualms about the design or colors of the rug; it looks pretty good in our family room. However, the rug arrived with tiny black spots all over it. I suspect they'll disappear with a cleaning, so we didn't return it based on that. Also, this rug sheds like nothing I've ever seen. Our floors are dark wood so the lint is very visible. The first vacuuming filled our (mostly empty) vacuum cleaner. It's been vacuumed at least 4 times since then and it still hasn't stopped shedding like crazy.

Much more stunning in person than the site shows. The rugs are heavy, thick, and well made. I would still recommend a rug pad to prevent slipping, especially if you get the smaller sizes or have pets / children.
Quite expensive without a sale / coupon, which is why I downgraded the "value" rating. However, with coupons, the price becomes a bit more acceptable.
Note on the cut sizes: The image is not "scaled" to the cut size rugs, but rather appear to be cut from the larger sizes. This is still acceptable as the pattern lends itself well to this.

I ordered the rug in Brown and I love it! It is extremely thick and comfortable on your feet and is constructed very well. The leaves are definitely more green than baby blue (almost a dark sea foam color), but the rug still goes well with a chair I have that is light blue and brown. The outlined leaves are more golden than the picture depicts, but it is a very rich and attractive gold. I also like how the green leaves are almost outlined (the fiber length is shorter at the edges of the green leaves, so they "pop").
