We took a bit of a gamble since the online reviews of the Argonne are mixed. Some people believe the quality was not up-to-par, or that the rug is "scratchy." However, if you read the product details, you know to expect a natural fiber (wool), flatweave rug. The Argonne is not meant to be sumptuous and soft - it's a nice, budget-friendly substitution for a high-end "carpet."
Our experience so far with Argonne is:
- Great price: 8x11 regular price - $429. We bought it on sale for $399 plus free shipping, so that was a nice bonus.
- Color: Nice, deep yellow that was true to website photo
- Weave: Decent, but not extremely tight. Time will tell how well it will hold up to moderate foot and paw traffic.
- Durability: Respectable. Unfortunately, Brooke's rug was "christened" with a spill of red wine over the holidays, but it recovered well with quick blotting. If the stain remained, it was not noticeable.
