Geometric 4 x 6 Rugs
The shipment was very quick (3 days to Europe). The colors are absolutely stunning and the quality is really excellent : very tightly and solidly wooven. Initially I was very reluctant to order online because I was afraid the colors would be duller than presented. Actually they are even more beautiful in reality. Also because the rug was meant to "warm up" the atmosphere of a more modern home, I was not sure it would go along with a more modern style. Indeed it looks wonderful, the whole room was instantly brightened up ! (Warning : for European delivery, please check for amount of additional customs tax, I had to pay 88 Euros for France. But the rug is worth them.). The only regret I have is that the rugs are not available in different sizes, I would have loved to have a choice from S to XL for every rug. And most important : thank you Mr Ruiz for bringing the beauty you create with talent and passion into homes all around the world. !
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.
