It was really exciting to find this rug online... colors look great, pattern nice and sharp. I ordered 4 of these rugs in different sizes.
The rugs were well packaged and arrived promptly. They were much thinner than expected (imagine 2 layers of a cardboard box sandwiched together - that's the thickness). I was OK with that at first, until I rolled them out and every one of them is not square. The edges are rounded or longer on one edge - each one has a different defect. This is really obvious against the lines in my hardwood floor, but it is also easily noticed on carpet.
Also, the bluish color is much less vivid on the rug itself. My first impression is that it looks a bit used (like a rug that someone has had for a long time). Sadly, these are getting returned.

I have had this rug for a few years now, since 2010. To start with this rug frequently comes with at least one flaw. For us it was in the form of different colored gold/yellow threads that were usually in one part of the rug. I think we had 4 or 5 sent to us and returned them because the gold/yellow "run" was in the middle of the chocolate brown rug and VERY noticeable. Finally we got one with the gold thread "run" in the chocolate brown color but at least it was on an end of the rug and we could hide it under a couch. But we also knew that there was no way we could ever rotate the rug because the flaw would be visible.
This rug´s design and colors are stunning. Absolutely beautiful. However, you can not get water on it. Liquids "mat" the fibers down and no matter how much you vacuum, they will not come back up. It also does not wear well, traffic patterns show and if it is by a couch you will see the wear from your feet where you sit. I don´t think it is worth the price, but it is beautiful! I keep checking back hoping that they fix the materials. If they did I would by another in a heartbeat. If they don´t, I would not even consider it.

When the carpet arrived I was very skeptical because it was thin and lightweight, for the size I was expecting it to weigh more and be thicker. After un-rolling the carpet I was very pleased with the quality and color. One thing not noted in the description is the pattern on the sides has a “3D” look. From the picture it looked like the carpet was a different color (light brown), but after opening, the light brown is flatter than the rest of the carpet and design is somewhat raised, I think it brings a nice textured look. The carpet is currently in my family room with a pit bull mix that loves to eat bones, roll around and play with toys and its holding up really well. I have used a damp cloth with water to spot clean and it vacuums well.

The rug looks good, but it is way too thin. When I vacuum it, the vacuum cleaner sucks it up off the floor. I was surprised a Martha Stewart product would be of such poor quality.
