Received the Tribeca Sisal in an 8ft x 10ft for out dining room. This was my first foray into sisal and I am very pleased with my purchase. This is a tightly woven rug with very clean, neat lines. It is low profile so chairs do not get caught on it. The color is my favorite part about this rug. It is a fantastic, warm neutral. Not very brown but not golden yellow either. Ive read that sisal can stain easily, but I will give that the test of time. It's in a room that does not get a lot of foot traffic so may be spared the normal staining issues. Also, yes, sisal is NOT soft, but I think it feels good underfoot - as long as you're not expecting cashmere. Vacuums like a dream with soft brush attachment and looks great...no tracking of footprints.
