I bought an area rug for my classroom in September, after being assured it would last me more than one year. After one month, I had to bring it back in for some repair, but after 6 months, the edges are totally falling apart. I could have spent half as much at Home Depot for a carpet and it would have lasted longer. Paying extra in this case did NOT give me a better product. The owner was short and rude, told me I was abusing the rug, and only offered me a good price on a new one. I will NEVER buy a rug from here again.
