This was our 1st purchase from eSaleRugs. We bought this rug in the 12'2" x 12'2" size for our LR. We really needed a big rug to anchor our LR & define the space since we have an open concept. Before we decided on eSaleRugs & this rug in particular we had found other rugs we "thought" were perfect from other vendors but upon getting a sample we found they looked absolutely nothing like what was represented online. The quality of those samples were sadly lacking as well. Coarse, wiry wool that was actually scratchy on the feet and the pile was not thick & tightly woven. We even ordered a runner of a Karastan rug from a local carpet & rug dealer only to be sorely disappointed when it wasn't even close to looking like it did online & I'm not just talking about the colors displayed on my monitor - I'm talking about the design in the rug. Thankfully we were able to return that runner. Through all this we discovered that you at least need to see honest to goodness actual photos of the rugs & not some teeny thumbnail online mockup. That's how we came to eSaleRugs. We were still somewhat skeptical of making such a large purchase (both dollars as well as physical size) from an online company we had never heard of before. We did check out other reviews on eSaleRugs & I called & spoke with the company directly about their policies even though they are stated on the site. With the free shipping plus a 30 day if you don't like it for any reason eSaleRugs will send a paid return shipping label & pick up order plus a credit to your credit card in a couple of days after they receive the rug back you can't hardly lose. So we ordered the rug. They sent it out the day we ordered it and it arrived quickly.
The rug is everything eSaleRugs said it was. Excellent quality, plush & soft underfoot. Very well made. Nice, quality wool with a tight, thick pile. AND it looked EXACTLY like the photos that eSaleRugs posted. The color was exact. The pattern was exact. No nasty surprises to disappoint!
I am not one of those people who immediately writes a review as soon as I get something. I like to wait in case there is something negative that reveals itself because you usually can't go back & change reviews. We have had the rug a month now & I'm happy to say we are even more pleased with it than we were when it first arrived if that is possible.
We have had wool rugs before so we know that they "shed" a lot at first. But wool rugs wear like iron and are well worth the near constant fibers coming off until you get them "broken in". The first 24 hours we had the rug I filled 2 vacuum bags FULL. Remember that it's a big rug! But I was expecting this so it didn't surprise me. Been there, done that before.
Because of it's size, the rug came folded & when you unfold it there will be "wrinkles" or what I call "bubbles" where portions don't lay completely flat on the floor but don't worry; those places WILL flatten out. It just takes a little time - up to a month for everything to relax but it will happen. One month later you can not tell that our rug ever had a wrinkle or bubble in it. Another great feature of wool rugs is that when you have furniture on it & then move the furniture, the pile will not stay flattened forever like synthetic materials do. Sure there will be flattened places for a bit but the wool fibers will bounce back and you don't have to live with "furniture marks" forever.
Gee, I sound like a paid advertisement for wool & eSaleRugs don't I? I promise you I am a real consumer who believes in touting things when they are good just as I believe in smashing them when they are bad. Well, eSaleRugs came through for us with great service and quality rugs and they don't hide a single thing. We are so happy with eSaleRugs that we have since bought a runner rug from them and are just as happy with it as we were with the LR rug.
You can see both the LR rug & the hall runner in both photos I am posting.
