Rated 4 out of 5 by CShmoe Lighter Than Expected
I just received this rug in an 8x10. While it's too soon to see how it will lie, it does seem like it'll be a great, heavy-duty area rug. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because the tan part of the rug is more like a cream- which makes it too light for our gray tile floors.
When I called in to let LLBean know it wont work for us, it's practically hassle free. I just need to wrap it up in the plastic it was shipped in and they will have UPS come to me, free of charge, and pick it up. Doesn't get much easier than that!

by SteveUTAH Primary picture a little misleading
I received this rug in the natural/cinder 8 X 10 size last week and upon unrolling it, noticed it was different than expected. Nice enough, but different. Returning to the website, I saw that based on the picture, I was expecting much wider gray borders than the rug had. The borders/colored areas were much smaller than I expected based on the primary picture. I then noticed the website's picture with the rug in the room, which did accurately reflect my rug.
My guess is that the main rug picture reflects the small rug size, but not the larger sizes. To LLBean's credit, the other photo does reflect the large size, so I can't really complain.
My review is really to emphasize to potential buyers that the larger size rugs have MUCH smaller colored borders than one might expect based on the primary picture. I would recommend that LL Bean modify the website so the primary rug picture changes when a different rug size is selected so that the true pattern is shown.

I purchased this rug after nearly a year of research. We have always had braided rugs and this was our first Berber-type. All reviews regarding durability seemed favorable. This one was in our foyer with a pad. After just two weeks the loops started popping up and the backing disintegrating into a powder. Very disappointed.

I purchased this rug after nearly a year of research. We have always had braided rugs and this was our first Berber-type. All reviews regarding durability seemed favorable. However, after only one month the loops started popping up and got caught in the vacuum cleaner. Then the backing started to flake off and accumulate under the rug. It was in the living room and not in a high traffic area. Pretty disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AdventurousMom not crazy about it
I have had this a year. I would send it back, but I have had it a year. I have it under a little kitchen nook table and gets used daily. Gets very dirty and I can not get it that clean. I had it professionally cleaned once and some stains would not come out. I know LL has a great return policy but I don't feel right about it.
I don't really recommend because its not that easy

by LLBeanerforLife8 Pretty but flawed
I bought this rug online and hoped for the best knowing most LLBean products are high quality. This rug was priced well and had decent reviews. The color (spruce) is beautiful - an understated and neutral green. However, I am going to have to retun the rug because one side is coming apart! It came out of the box this way and I'm super disappointed. Especially since this is not easy to return via shipping, I'll have to get to a store wihcih is over an hour away. I've included a photo below showing the side that's coming apart vs. a side that looks like it was made correctly. Again - this is what it looked like out of the packaging!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kleigh68 Nice Rug, but not for pets!
I love the Natural color, it has somewhat of a light gray border, which will go great with my charcoal arm chairs! It's also pretty soft, won't feel scratchy underfoot. However, as soon as I rolled it out, my Golden Retriever came over and laid down. Oh, he likes it, he's so cute! Then he got up, went to "dig" , and pulled a couple loops out of the rug! Probably not the best rug if you have dogs who like to turn in circles and do that scratching, digging motion before laying down!

Not bad for a scratching pad for my cat who destroyed a beautiful wool rug. Still a good buy for the price .
Recommend this rug for pets owners

We purchased this rug for our living room. The color is exactly as it looked on-line. We are very pleased with the quality and even without a pad it feels very soft underfoot. We love all LL Bean products! Never had a problem with anything.

Got one a few years back and it's still in great shape. I have a cat who claws on it; an active dog who runs on it and no snags whatsoever. I ended up getting another one to add to another area in my apartment. It's really a good quality weave!
