SKU: 178749
Select Store

Impressionist oriental lets the eye combine small dots of contrasting color, blending together into a painterly pattern of soft jewel tones. Master artisans use a mix of handspun natural wool, Argentinian semi-twist wool and viscose yarns, micro tufting them into an exceedingly resilient rug.

Order rugs (up to 6'x9') online and pickup in a store near you. It's fast, easy and free.

For 8'x10' and larger rugs, order online and arrange a convenient warehouse pickup or delivery.

Alvarez Garden Wool-Blend 5x8 Rug is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 133.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful rug! Have had the rug for about 5 months. Only one pulled thread, but have pulled out a few small splinters. Colors are beautiful and it seems to be wearing well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LOVE the rug..DON'T LOVE cutting snags out daily! I fell in love with this rug when I first spotted it at the store. The colors, tapestry-like design and softness. We bought it. We painted walls and bought new artwork around the feel of this new 9x12 rug. All good. NEW look!All good until we unrolled it and began stepping on it. Not good. I have been cutting snags out daily!!! LOTS! It is such a disappointment. :( The description says that it is "exceedingly resilient". Not true. It is literally unraveling under our feet and I am afraid that the more cutting I do (which C&B recommends versus pulling them out) I won't have any rug left in a couple of years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful but PULLS WAY TOO EASILY. Beware I bought this rug about 6 months ago for my living room. It's beautiful and just what I wanted. There are a lot of earthy tone colors in the rug so it can match with so many accent pieces very easily. My problem and disappointment with the rug is that it PULLS VERY EASILY. We do not wear shoes on the rug. I have followed the care instructions for vacuuming. I have rugs in other rooms and have never had this problem. Already, we have a large pull in one section that makes me nervous is going to become worst. The edges have frayed in a few sections - I cut one as directed in the care instructions, but now I have 2 more. The color and pattern hide wear easily (which is a reason we bought it), but the pulls are upsetting. If this is happening within 6 months of purchase, how long will this rug last? I love C&B and the quality of their products. Therefore, I am very surprised that I am running into this issue. I see other reviews with similar concerns about the pulls. Before purchasing, I went to see the rug in person at the store. The loops of the rug are very small and sewed super tight together, so the loops looked to be very difficult to pull. Therefore, I thought that the other reviews about pulls must have been because of care issues or thought that C&B fixed the issue. Not the case! Now I need to monitor my rug for pulls ..... add it to my list of weekend chores!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Alvarez garden rug We absolutely loved the print of this rug and it matched perfectly with our new living room. Within 1 week we began noticing multiple pulls in the rug, with minimal traffic in the home. We just had it picked up for return.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth it - starts pretty but doesn't wear well We've had this rug a little over a year and now I can report that it is not very durable at all. It constantly produces loose strings, the edges are getting very fuzzy/frayed, and it looks dingy and heavily used even though it hasn't been there very long. It is in a low-traffic area, so this is pretty disappointing. We always follow the care instructions. The one good thing I can say about it is that the pattern hides stains well if you spill something. But the overall look of the rug now is worn, messy and unattractive. I expected more for the very high price tag, but I've had very cheap rugs that lasted longer and looked newer after much heavier use and another expensive C&B rug that is more than 10 years old, but still looks great. From now on I'll stick with the C&B synthetic rugs if I ever even buy any rugs from C&B again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The swatch is worth it! We were having trouble choosing a rug for our living room. We got a few swatches and grabbed this one at the suggestion of the wonderful designer, Margaret. It wasn't one we would have picked ourselves. Turns out, that's the perfect rug!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multicolored dream rug so easy to accessorize Very well made rug and is wearing well also. It was fun to match C/B throw pillows with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I bought this rug for my dining room. I love the subtle hints of color, yet the overall neutral look. The quality is very good for the price. Vacuums easily. I liked it so much, I ordered another one for our condo at the beach. I also ordered the natural color for a bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the texture! I have this in our dining room. The rug colors are muted from a distance, but are beautiful when close. The texture adds to the beauty and feels great on the feet!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I purchased this rug (5x7) about 4 months ago, and overall I am happy with the quality and durability of the rug. There is high traffic on our rug (we have a dog and many visitors), and the rug has shown minimal signs of wear and tear with the exception of a few stray rug strands. I very much enjoy that the rug hides dirt and grime well!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This one is tricky I bought the 9 x12 for my living room. The store display appears to be 5 X 8. Other reviewers have commented on seeing less orange than they expected; me, too. On the 9x12, the pattern is blown up proportionately to the rug, so there are much larger areas of the neutral color between the orange splotches - the bow-tie shapes are twice as large as what I saw in the store, and about 4 feet from one row of the bow-tie shapes to the next. The first band of three bow-tie shapes is more orange, the next band is more dark red than orange, and the third band, completely covered by the sofa, is more orange. Also, there is more dark red than orange in the bands of squarish splotches. There is none of the warm yellow -- in this largest version, that is a range of camel to wheat. All that said, I do like the colors, subtle variations, thickness and softness of the rug. Zero concerns with hard fibers, as some reviewers have experienced. Ultimately, I like it, but it has been a bit of a challenge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I ordered on line, even bought a rug swatch, but the rug arrived and is much redder than my monitor shows. I wanted a lot of orange, so it doesn't match...but it is a beautiful rug.
