Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Southernbell867 Color not accurate
This is a great rug, and looks beautiful under my kitchen table. However, the color is NOT as pictured. It looks almost spa online and is listed as lichen. It is actually a version of brown.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by djsam LIchen color is not as photographed
I should have known by the color name, lichen, but the web site photo looked like the rug had a dusty blue trim which was very pretty. When I got the got the trim was a dark beige with a slight olive tint. Also the rug itself seems darker(the jute part) and just very rustic looking, not very nice for indoors.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EMT17 A good rug, but didn't work for me
This rug came exactly when HDC said it would arrive, and was in great condition when it arrived. I unrolled it and it settled down in pretty short order. The color was accurate - the black was good and dark (as opposed to another I'd bought elsewhere, and where the black border was more charcoal gray). There did appear to be one corner that wasn't exactly square, but it's possible that I could have pulled that into shape. I ended up returning it because the interior color didn't really go in the room where I had put it, and hopefully the return will be refunded soon.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CJohn I really want to love it...
This is a very pretty rug that feels good to walk on, and has so much potential to be a great rug...however, the details are what holds it back. The beige border is actually a sage/khaki color, and it is thick in the corners where it is sewn. Also, the one end of the border is not straight, but curved in the middle so that I had to lay the rug a certain way so that the curved end could not be seen directly. (fortunately I was able to do that where I used it) I put this under a dining room table. It has been down for over a week and there are still some lines across it from being rolled...am hoping they will eventually work their way out. I like the overall look, but just wish there was more care taken in the details. Not having straight sides should have been caught in Quality Control, no matter how much the rug cost!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by marco1 dirty edges
Great rug as far as the seagrass part, but the edges get really dirty and make the rug look awful. I am a meticulous house keeper, but the edges on this rug look like I had it in a public restroom. I've tried cleaning but it didn't make a difference. Don't buy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kamf76 Nice Rug - Color Deceiving
This rug seems to be great - especially for the price. However, the color shown on the website looks nothing like it does in person. I ordered the "Lichen", which appeared to be a greenish-bluish-gray color. In reality, it is a dark tan with no hint of green or blue. (I realize that all computer monitors display colors slightly differently, though.) I should also note that there is a slight striped pattern in the jute. Regardless, I was able to use the rug in a different area than planned, and it has held up great so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PerpetualRedecorator Perfect Fit for Need
I had received Home Decorator magazines for years and never thought about ordering from them. However, I have had trouble keeping a rug in my family room for more than 2-3 years that didn't start to fall apart (prior rugs purchased at Pottery Barn and Home Depot). After reading the reviews and comparing prices, I thought I didn't have much to lose in ordering this rug. It fits the space perfectly, looks exactly like what I expected, and so far, seems the best value to date. I will know better in 2 years. The rug is thin, but I prefer that look on hardwood floors. The downsides so far: there are still a few creases that haven't worked themselves out yet after 2 weeks, and it arrived with a grease smudge (about the size of a fist) on the fabric border. However, some carpet cleaner removed it completely.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JuliJ 2nd time purchasing this same rug- love it!
We purchased this same, exact rug 7 years ago. This year, we noticed the rubbery-type backing under it started to disintegrate. It left large piles of a powdery substance under the rug (easy to clean up). We did not have a rug protector underneath, but this transaction included a free one with purchase of the rug. We'll see how much this will extend the life of the rubber-backing. Even then... we'll keep replacing these rugs if we need. We love them!
