Arden

Our Arden high shag rug is machine woven in Georgia using the finest New Zealand wool that’s been felted for extra softness. It has a modern, textural look with a deep, sink-in soft feel you’ll love to enjoy barefoot. A minimal backing neatly finishes this rug.

Please note that shedding is a natural occurrence in high-quality wool rugs, but will decrease over time. The amount of shedding will depend on the traffic pattern and use of your rug.

MACHINE-LOOMED, HAND-FINISHED RUG CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

Rug Design Process

Rug Design Process

Long before our rugs are woven, they start as a vision of color, composition and material. We design our rugs with inspiration from art and architecture to historical designs and nature. Every color, pattern and texture is carefully considered to ensure the rugs are both beautiful and easy to live with. We use the highest quality yarns for durability and longevity. Rugs set the foundation for your room and we're committed to bringing you an exclusive collection of colors, styles and textures that will last.

How It's Made

How It's Made

State-of-the-art machines are used to weave the entire rug. Machine looming produces rugs with a uniform look and dense weave at a value. Finishing details are completed primarily by hand.

Construction

Construction

Machine-loomed rugs are made using computer-controlled tufting needles that quickly push loops of yarn through a primary backing. Expert craftsmen carefully inspect the rug after weaving and fill any gaps with a tufting gun or, in the case of tiny areas, a single-tuft needle. Using a scissors, excess yarns are hand-trimmed from the front, back and edges of the rug. After a final edging, each rug is inspected for size, consistency and overall quality.

Finish Details

Finish Details

A non-allergenic, synthetic latex backing is rolled on by hand after the tufting process to hold the yarns in place. Then a secondary backing material is added to add strength and stability. A final layer of flexible latex is troweled on, to lock the backing system together and create a smooth back.

        Customer comments about Arden Natural High Shag 8'2"x11'6" Rug:

        We've had hardwood floors with no rugs for so long and now I can't figure out why. This rug is so nice to sit, kneel or lay on. We bought it at a R&B end of season floor sample sale and got an awesome price. It's ivory and after being on the sales floor for a year it still looked great which was a selling point. When we got it home, we could better see where traffic had been so we cleaned it and that helped but it still wasn't bad. We did not put a pad under it because it is so thick. The challenging thing is that even when the vacuum cleaner is on the tallest setting it's still hard to vacuum. It barely sheds at all and really brings the room together. We're really happy with this purchase.

          Customer comments about Arden Natural High Shag 6'7"x9'10" Rug:

          I have this rug under a Noguci table in my living room. I have had it now for SIXTEEN MONTHS and it won't stop shedding. Seriously, it is ridiculous. I knew it would shed a bit, but I never could have guessed it would shed this much and for this long! I "groom" it every few weeks, to try and remove as many loose fibres as possible, but it is no use. In every corner of my apartment I find fibres and little tumbleweeds from this rug. I seriously would not recommend it. The picture I included shows the ball of material that I colleceted from this weeks "grooming".

          Sensuous rug, no shedding

            Customer comments about Arden Natural High Shag 5'7"x7'10" Rug:

            This rug is very sensuous underfoot; we want to rub our bare feet on it every time we sit near it, and my cat has adopted it as his new bed. However, he has developed cat acne on his chin from resting his head on it, because he is allergic to the plastic or glue on its underside. We have had no issues at all with shedding, just vacuuming it weekly; however, it is not in a high traffic area, which helps. Overall, although it was expensive, it is a classic, versatile shag rug which we hope will prove durable over the years.

            Service and delivery comments:

            As always, R & B customer service and delivery service are the best. They are courteous, efficient, prompt and respectful of my home and my time.

              Customer comments about Arden Natural High Shag 5'7"x7'10" Rug:

              This rug is unique in its texture---not too chunky or too shaggy, but just a classic shag. We have not had any shedding issue at all with it, perhaps partly because we have it under our cocktail table in our living room, not a high traffic area. It feels so soft and comfortable underfoot that we can't help but rub our feet on it while sitting near it; our cat is happy we bought it, too, and rests on it whenever he gets the chance. We bought the ivory, and it adds a lovely visual interest to the room, too, viewable through our Room and Board Parsons glass top cocktail table. It's more expensive than some shag rugs, so I'm hoping that, after a few years of use, I will be able to mark "durable" as one of its advantages, too.

              Service and delivery comments:

              We have had several deliveries from Room and Board, and this delivery was the first one done by a contracted delivery service, rather than by the Room and Board delivery service. The delivery workers were just as prompt and courteous as the Room and Board delivery workers (even volunteering to put on paper booties when they saw we had light beige Berber carpet). We did have some dirt on the ivory leather Enzo chairs delivered that same day; but subsequent Room and Board delivery workers cleaned most of it off.
