Rated 1 out of 5 by Evelyn3170 Traps moisture on floor
I purchased one to use in front of kitchen sink, In the past I have used the Waffle weave rug and the similar rug no longer sold that has the leaf pattern for doormats and in front of sink. (loved them)...They helped protect my hardwood floors. I have purchased several of them for 2 houses, when they were dirty I just tossed them and bought new rugs ....only 49.00 a rug ...L L Bean has changed the backing and now they trap moisture ON the floor...just the normal steam from my dishwasher made the back of this rug very wet at the corner near the dishwasher. I noticed the dampness and picked rug up....it was very wet next to floor. I have used dishwasher since that day with a towel on floor and no problems. Same thing happened at doorway with new Waffle rug....I will miss the older backing on these rugs in the small size....I am 63 yrs old and live alone, this not caused by kids or abuse....I'd pay double or more for old style backing on rugs.....they were worth it...

Rated 2 out of 5 by KaribuTena Color not as pictured
I am quite disappointed after receiving this rug in the 8x10 size today. I ordered it at the beginning of October and just received it due to a backorder. The "golden sand" is not at all as pictured. It is a much lighter color...I would call it cream (it's not golden at all) and it just doesn't go well in my living room. I also have 3 little kids and need something darker at this stage of life! Now I have to decide whether to deal with the hassle (and cost) of returning it and waiting on another backordered color. It would be really helpful if the colors pictured (and names of the colors) were more accurate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NightandDay Good value and look
I bought the 8x10 rug in cinder for my kitchen dining area. It cleans easily and looks very nice. The cinder color is more of a taupe rather than the grayish color shown on the screen, and overall has a lighter appearance than I expected. I kept it anyways as I liked it; the cinder color is very neutral.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BroughtUpOnBean Exactly what I was looking for
I have been wanting a rug for our living room that was "stylish" but "plain". No easy task. This is the perfect combination with the of the moment lattice pattern but the simplicity of one tone. Bought the 8x10 and we are loving it. A hair thin on it's own so I opted for a premium felted rug pad from another vendor which elevates this rug both literally and stylistically. I highly recommend this rug for the value!
