Comments: We use this rug in the living room of a mountain home that has a farmers stone fireplace, quarter-sawn oak floors with a light finish, and transitional furnishings. The antique wash colors complement the other finishes very well. I bought this on a whim, knowing that there was little risk given Room & Board's easy return policy. It was so visually pleasing when rolled out, I knew in a nanosecond that it was a keeper.

Comments: We needed something for the family room in our Santa Fe contemporary style house (saltillo tile floors, kiva fireplace, wood accents). An oriental rug would've been too formal, while many of the modern rugs I'd seen would've been too plain. The keysari was perfect. Love the color palette--it's supremely cozy. Personally, I think the 2 sizes that R&B offers are great (more versatile in my opinion than an 8 x 10 or 9 x 13) ... and you can get this one made to a custom size, too, which is great, though at that point it would become expensive.

Comments: I searched extensively for an area rug that would complement our existing furniture, add a wow factor to our family room, look great with our chestnut stained hardwood floor, and be compatible with our rustic contemporary house in its woodsy setting. Though I was reluctant to buy anything this expensive online, I took a chance and am so glad I did! The colors are vibrant yet muted (I know that sounds contradictory but it's true.)and the pattern is stunning. This rug completes our family room and is one of those purchases that just makes you happier in your space. I was pleased with the promptness of the delivery as well as the professionalism of the delivery guys.

Comments: We spent a year or so debating whether to purchase this rug with it's very distinctive pattern and color palette that we felt would then define the color scheme of our living room. We went for it and couldn't be happier; the colors are distinctive and beautiful, vibrant but muted at the same time, the pattern is interesting and unique, defying categorization. Surprisingly, it is also a very soft rug, pleasant to walk on - our kids love to sit on it. We've had it for a few weeks and seen no shedding and find it easy to keep clean. It's expensive but looks and feels so also. Highly recommended.

Comments: Bought this rug in the largest size and it looks faded and washed out, nothing like the vibrant colors pictured online. The deep terra cotta color in the picture looks like a bleached out apricot. I was disappointed as soon as I unrolled the rug and knew right away I did not want to keep it. Fortunately R&B offered to exchange this free of charge for another rug, so I will have a chance to compare. I visited the DC store to look at this rug and ordered a swatch before buying, so I was surprised to see the rug I received look so faded and bland.

Comments: We purchased the larger size of this rug for our living room. Although we wanted to have some color, we were not interested in bright colors. This rug was perfect. It has a wide range of colors and pulls the room together very nicely. It is colorful and subdued at the same and very classy. We love it!
Featuring a traditional pattern and warm colors inspired by antique Seychour rugs, Kayseri easily mixes with furniture of any style. Two diamond-shaped floral and vine medallions surrounded by multiple contrasting borders make this classic rug a conversation piece. Hand-knotted from 100% wool, each rug is finished to give it a vintage feel, while maintaining an exceptionally plush and durable texture.
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.

HAND-KNOTTED 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
Simply put, weavers create each wool rug one tiny knot at a time. Experienced weavers can weave
between one to two-and-one-half inches per day, demonstrating the meticulous care that goes into
each rug. These unique skills are handed down from person to person—some of the weavers are
part of the sixth generation of craftsmen. They are artists who create one-of-a-kind masterpieces.
Hand-knotted rugs generally feature intricate patterns that contain dozens of yarn colors. Before weaving begins, the naksha, or master plan, is plotted on huge graph paper in which each square represents one knot in the final rug. Each color on the naksha indicates a specific shade of yarn, which the weaver uses to guide the design.
The loom is prepared for weaving by setting columns of warps, stretched from the top of the loom to the bottom. The rug progresses as knot after knot of woolen yarn is tied on the warps. After the first weft (or row) is woven, it is tamped down with a mallet to keep it tight. A second weft interlocks the warps across each row to keep the knots in place. The weaver—or team of weavers, in the case of large rugs—repeats the process until the entire rug is completed. This labor-intense method produces rugs that are equal parts beautiful and durable.
Hand-knotted rugs do not require backings because their construction makes them stable without one. The reverse side of the rug shows the same pattern as the front; however, the front has a pile and the back does not.
Every rug goes through a range of quality inspections, looking for consistency in size, yarn quality, pile height and shearing. An array of washing techniques are used, each of which achieves a different effect.
