I've purchased several Novice rugs in the past, but nothing this large. I'm wary of getting something this big without having seen it in person, but I took the leap and I'm happy. The main difference (to my eye) between the image online and the rug in person is that the image of the rug looks lighter, more yellow/orange. In person the overall effect is more autumnal, the browns are more dominant. Either way, it's a winner, big and bold and beautiful. I have a lot of wall space, so I hung it on the wall (velcro worked great), I also I couldn't bear the thought of walking on the light colors. It felt like a risky purchase at the time but now I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
This rug fits perfectly in the room. It is really well made and durable. The color and pattern exist perfectly together, and the earth tone makes the room feel more grounded. I am so happy to be able to have this rug from Delfina Ruiz, I love it more every time I see it. Thank you Delfina, you did a beautiful job.
I use this outstandingly beautiful rug as a runner on a a 1920s oak sideboard. Its warm glow lights up the entire room and complements the antique decor amazingly well. Incredibly well-made -- tightly woven, soft wool. I am so grateful to this artist, and will certainly get another rug for underfoot.
