Rated 3 out of 5 by 68954 Only my smaller rugs are still in good shape
About 2 1/2 years ago I bought one 7x9 braided oval rug and it is still in good shape. I liked it so well that I ended up buying 2 more oval braided rugs a couple of months later, another 7x9 and an 8x11. The smaller rugs are still usable but the larger rug started coming apart at a seam. Then after I had it professionally cleaned along with one of the 7x9 rugs, the 8x11 rug fell apart in another seam and it lost it's firmness and became so filmsy feeling that it wasn't the same rug at all. You might think it was due to the cleaning, but the other 7x9 rug cleaned beautifully. I am so disappointed that I will never buy another rug like it again from LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by notthistime rug is beautiful
I bought the small oval multicolor braided rug for under my feet when sitting on my couch. It's a beautiful color and well made. I have two large wool braided rugs that I bought secondhand without tags or knowing where they're made, and they're both in great condition years after I bought them for next to nothing. This is my first braided new rug and LLBean did not disappoint.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Vertimus For Guest Bedrooms, Areas Not In Regular Use
My rug arrived bright and beautiful, but within a few weeks was drab and grey, and I am careful whenever entering the house that my shoes are clean or removed. Nor did having it cleaned help at all. The underside still looks wonderful, but the top is almost recognizable, and certainly no longer matches the underside. Overall, I've found owning frustrating and disappointing.
I have found that almost every household item I have purchased from L.L. Bean is great if seldom in active use, but if purchased for everyday use, the items--bedspreads, rugs, etc.--hold up poorly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanLover51 I'm reviewing the 6X8 oval. Great rug, but ...
This is a beautiful rug and was just what we were looking for for our Vermont living room. Unfortunately, after less than 2 years, and only 1 year of full time use, there are some snags in the weave (not too bad) and several of the seems are coming apart. I plan to contact LL Bean to see how we can stitch them back together. Otherwise, it's wonderful. I did not notice other reviewers having this problem, so perhaps ours is a fluke.

I've owned this rug for a number of years. I have it my living room under the coffee table. It hasn't faded and looks as new as the day I brought it home. It was most definitely worth the money. The colors are so vibrant and lovely I've received many compliments.

Rated 1 out of 5 rug ripped in two places within the first year
I bought the 9x12 version of this rug for our new house. It was lovely and I enjoyed the bright multi color in my dining room, but the rug ripped in two places before the first year ended. I sewed the carpet and flipped it over. This time it ripped again in a new place. I took it up and have not used it for more than a year. Since it was expensive, more than a thousand dollars, I am reluctant to throw it away, but it can't be used as it is. It is currently folded up awaiting repair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by megalina plays well with cats
I have had the multicolor runner in my home for 1 year and it still looks great. I have middle-aged cats with all their claws (that I clip) and was afraid they would make mincemeat of the rug, but although they like to lie on it they never have tried to sharpen their claws on it. I love how the bright colors in the rug make a very cheerful entry to my house, even on dark winter days. Very high marks for this rug!

I've just ordered my fourth rug in 4 years, I love them so much! They stand up to everything and are great for kids to play on. I've looked at other rugs but nothing suits my home like these--they warm up every room. So glad they're made in North America.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KateyK Beautiful rug, excellent customer service!
I bought the 5x8 rose/moss rug. As others have been saying, the internet just doesn't do the colours justice. This is my 2nd rug, my first is over 20 years old. It has faded slightly over the years, but has stood up very well. Initially, there was a mix up with my order, but when I phoned customer service the problem was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Everyone I spoke to or emailed was very friendly. There was never a doubt in my mind that things would be resolved, which they were.

Rated 5 out of 5 by galofpnw Best sturdy, practical rugs you can get
I like to have rugs & mats in front of every door, outside and in. It helps to keep dirt from tracking in. I've bought all kinds of rugs from various stores. Usually I would keep them for a while and then they would start to unravel or come apart or just get horrible looking.
Since I found these wool rugs from LL Bean I have bought basically nothing else. People always comment on how nice they look. After we moved to the country my hubby brought a cat into the house. It took some training before it learned to not use the large round rug for a scratching pad. It is also sometimes a cat barf destination. I thought --- that's the end of that rug -- but it still holds together even though there are a few of tufts of wool sticking out, and it cleans up just fine. It shows no sign of the paper towels, baby wipes, Lysol wipes, vinegar solution, etc that have been used on it at various times. The small ones, you can wash in the machine in an emergency.
I just bought two more of these and will probably keep on replacing my existing rugs with them. That they are made in USA is an additional gift. Another plus is that they don't shed lint like some cheaper rugs do.
