Onyx

Combining traditional techniques with a modern look, the Onyx rug adds subtle color and pattern. Skilled weavers twist and dye 100% wool strands by hand to create the unique, variegated design.

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.

      Customer comments about Onyx 8'9"x11'6" Rug:

      I finally thought a 2 year quest for a great rug that didn't require a bank loan to afford it was over. When I rolled open the rug, I was delighted - the pattern was perfect, the exact emphasis on color I had wanted. I couldn't quite understand why it didn't quite fit under my couch/chairs layout as I had expected. It seemed smaller than I needed. Sure enough, after I thought I had mis-measured my space, I measured the rug and yup, it was a couple of inches shorter in both width and length than it had said it was. A couple of inches either side doesnt sound like a lot, but I felt a little short changed.
      It still looks good though, just not quite perfect.

      Had another carpet but it was much thicker and lasted forever. Thus one looks good but so thin. Seems scimpy compared to my old one

      Bought this rug to complete my white/gray modern contemporary master bedroom. The images make the rug look much more evenly gray than it it. The pattern is much more emphasized and camouflage than it looks in the pictures online.

      Particularly great if you have pets. I have (2) large dogs and the coloring/random pattern hides the hair AND (should) hide any stains. fingerscrossed that doesn't happen!

      I love my new rug

          Customer comments about Onyx 8'x9'9" Rug:

          I was looking for a new rug for a long time before I settled on this beauty. Throughout my 20's (I am 30...), I only owned tufted rugs, which still ran between $400-1000 based on size. They would always shed and never last more than a few years.

          I have had my R&B rug only for about a month, but it has BARELY shed. One of my cats also vomited on the rug, it was there for more than 24 hours, but came right up with some vinegar and some TLC.

          I will also note that because of the colors (grayish blue, tan, and darker cream), it will beautifully hide dirt and every day use. It will also go with many different styles if your styles change over time (as mine do bc I love redecorating).

          Color wise, it definitely has bluish tones, but it is NOT blue. It is also still fairly light (but will hide dirt) so it brightens and does not darken a room.

          While this rug is more expensive than others, it is well worth the price and one of my best home purchases to date.
