Rugs Direct recommends you avoid using your vacuum's beater bar on any area rug. For complete information on area rug care and cleaning, please click here.
Colors are vibrant and pull the entire room together. Only downside, you can't vacuum it with an upright or roller/beater-bar vacuum. Absolutely gorgeous!
This rug is a little strange - rather than regular rug threads it has like little peacock feather things on it - man made of course. But we love it. It is the most unique rug we have ever seen Just don't let your cat get sick on it! It would not be the easiest rug to clean. Can certainly make a big impact on a room.
This is a great rug--I am going to order in in other sizes. It looks 'suprised'!
This rug has the most brilliant colors (I bought the turquoise).... really makes my room POP. I may need to rotate another rug into the attic so I can justify buying another. Wish the backing was a denser 'mat' like you see with true carpets. After a 2 days of walking over it the edges have stayed flat and with the non skid rug pad it does not act like a scatter rug which is what I was afraid of. Love it.
Foreign Accents is such a great rug brand! And you will not find a better price that this website. I love this website and Rugs Direct. And this rug is so beautiful in person and great quality. Reminds me of a "peacock" with its colors. BUY IT AND YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!
I would have liked this rug to have more of the shag effect. But it is very pretty and does the job. I bought the smallest size and let me tell you it is very heavy, very good quality. The colors are vibrant and goes with my turquoise, chartreuse and chocolate theme.
Colors are exactly as pictured and are a beautiful mixture of blues which was exactly what I was looking for. Rug would be nicer if it was slightly thicker, but overall I love the looks of it.
I absolutely love the colors in this rug. I was not disappointed when it arrived. It's in my home office and it is stunning with the teal walls and black furniture. I must add though, that it is not very comfortable to walk on barefooted. I expected it to be much softer since it is shag. It's a long, twisted fiber and not very dense. It is beautiful though.
The colors are amazing! To me it actually looks like water moving. I don't think the picture gives you an idea of the weave of this rug - it has long (2") braided pieces that are not as dense (plentiful) as I would have liked. Otherwise I am keeping it because of the amazing color and light effects.
Had passed over this rug several times thinking it was a retro-shag type until I happened to be in a high-end furniture store and saw this rug in the silver/black combo. It was so interesting & eye catching. Not your 70's shag at all! Each "tuft" has 4-5 "crimps in it...kinda reminds me of something you would see in the ocean on a coral reef. This rug is soft & has a lot of dimension, although it appears to be one solid color. We have an eclectic, contemporary style; this rug is perfect.
