Comments: This rug was even better when it was delivered than it was in the showroom. It completely brings all parts of our room together to make a "room" within our open condo. The wool is cozy yet modern; it's comfortable and durable. It is well worth the investment!

Comments: I love the look of the chain rug but it is hard to clean. I knew that when I bought it, but its so good looking I think its worth it.

Comments: Who knew that a rug could bring a room together so well? Even after purchasing furniture and wall art for our living room, it still seemed unfinished. We hunted for the perfect item to bring the space together, and lucked out with the Chain Rug. We have been so happy with it, the texture is amazing both visually and under our feet. We have a large dog and were concerned that the rug may not hold up to the stress of his paws and claws, but it's handled great, without any sign of wear and tear! Months after putting it on the floor, the rug looks brand new. I'd definitely recommend it.

Comments: We purchased this rug about 2 months ago to go with our york sofa and chaise and a linear media cabinet, and we love it! I have had guests over who chose to sit on the floor on the rug because it's so comfy. Personally, I like that it has a soft look against the modern furniture, however, it is not so thick that it creates a divide in the room. The heather color is great because it keeps the room bright and light, but hides any dirt. I'm not sure about how durable it will be, but I'm assuming it will wear well! Because it is a natural wool material, little balls of wool release from the rug every once in a while, as a side note, but we expected that.

Comments: This rug is all we hoped it would be. It is soft and luxurious-feeling, but it's also clean and modern-looking. It works perfectly with our other R+B furniture, tying the room together. The "mist" color is a beautiful hue, light and airy but with enough gray in it that it doesn't show every speck of dirt.

Comments: I love the Chain Rug in Heather. However, we bought it to match the Townsend sofa in Linen, as well as the lovely gray Zinc chairs and discovered that in our sunlight-filled home, the color of the rug clashed slightly with the Townsend sofa. However, we loved the rug so much we decided to keep it for use in our family room where it matches a darker, kelp-colored sofa. The heather rug has yellowish tones, which comes out in broad daylight, so be careful when selecting it to match your other furniture pieces. Of course, we viewed the rug next to the sofa at the Room & Board store, but the lighting was different in the store than at our home during the day. It is a luxurious, thick and warm rug, so I'm glad we decided to keep it.

Comments: Love the rug. It's warm, inviting and beautiful. It sheds a little (although no more than other natural rugs), so use vacuum sparingly. Looks beautiful but the Heather rug does not match the Townsend sofa in Linen. In broad daylight, the yellows in the Heather rug appear stronger, so be careful when you're matching color.

Comments: This rug is beautiful in the cement color. It does have a slight blue tint to it, depending on the lighting in your room.
Consideration: shedding is a natural occurrence, but will decrease over time; most shedding occurs within the first 3-6 months; rug pad recommended for hard floors to protect floor surface, add cushioning and reduce movement
Material Description: Wool is an ideal rug fiber because it's resilient enough to bounce back to its original shape after being walked on, making it a smart choice for high-traffic areas. Wool contains lanolin, a natural oil that makes wool both stain resistant and flame retardant without chemical treatment. This means dirt and debris sit on the outside of the fibers, allowing it to be vacuumed up easily. Pure wool rugs will shed noticeably for the first few months and will diminish over time.
HAND-WOVEN RUG CONSTRUCTION DETAILS
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
Experienced weavers use an upright or hand loom and traditional techniques to make hand-woven rugs
and they can complete from four to seven inches per day. Artisans are able to produce a variety of
textures and patterns, from flat weave to plush.
Hand-woven rugs are made on a loom, using warp (vertical) yarns that are tightly interwoven with
weft (horizontal) yarns. The weft strands cover the warp and determine the color that is visible,
creating the rug's pattern. A number of weaving techniques are used and chosen based on the type of
pattern, texture or design required. Many of the methods have been in use for hundreds, or even
thousands, of years.
Hand-woven rugs do not require a backing because the strands are secured through the weaving
process. An array of washing techniques are used, each of which achieves a different effect. Our
hand-woven rugs are hand-finished and every rug goes through a range of quality inspections, looking
for consistency in size, yarn quality, pile height and shearing.
