I'm not new to the Seagrass rug. I have ordered several others from Natural Area Rugs. I live in a house that is over 100 years old and is raised. Drafty floors. These rugs offer a really good insulating barrier helping to keep my house warmer and cooler. I love their organic yet tailored look. They work well with almost any decorating style. The other really good part is for pet owners. If your pet has the occasional accident clean up is easy. Liquids don't soak in as the fibers are dense. Just as I would on wood, tile, vinyl or other carpet, I use a little organic matter remover to eliminate the possibility of odor. I've had one of these rugs under constant use for over six years and it still looks good and no change in the texture of the rug. I think, if you want floor covering and , like me, you are operating within a modest budget' these rugs are perfect. Give them a try.
