John Lewis Darwin Rug
Had to have this rug as it was just the right colour (putty) and just the right size (the smallest one) that I'd been looking for. It is very nice, but I do think it's rather expensive; I may have thought twice about buying it if I hadn't had some vouchers to put towards it. A warning - it is very thick so you have to be careful not to trip over it! (Or is it just me?!)

This is a quality 100% wool rug. You get what you pay for. Heavy and thick, it's textured finish adds interest to my wooden floor. Lovely statement piece. Excellent delivery service, arrived on the second day after ordering. Very pleased.

Beautiful, soft rug - sheds worse than a cat
We bought the rug in November 2012 to go with our lovely new floors - it was great for the first few weeks. We noticed only a little shedding to start with. We have a 3 and 5 year old who are always on the floor and love playing on the rug. in the last three weeks, we've had to hoover every other day to start with, and now every day to keep up with the rug. Even then, we're still picking up balls of fibre around the house as it is tracked around by the munchkins.... Would return it if we could find the receipt, despite it's luxurious feel, as it is worse than having a pet shedding in the house...(we have none). Sorry JL, not one of the better purchases.

The rug was delivered five days ago and is still fairly flat from being rolled and packaged, however it is gradually lifting and hopefully in the next few days it will look as thick and luxurious as the shop sample. Don't be put off by this comment it really is a beautiful rug and I am very pleased with my purchase.

Darwin Rug (Cream)
This rug is quite expensive, and it was for this reason that I was in two minds about purchasing it. However, having bought several cheaper versions from other retailers, which I ended up taking back because they were such poor quality, I thought I'd give this one a go. It really is a lovely rug and is fantastic quality. It's a very heavy rug with a deep, thick pile. I purchased this rug in cream and was very pleased as it's not a 'yellowy' cream like some of the rugs you can buy. It looks beautiful in the living room!

Squidgy and soft under my feet, perfect for babies to fall on!
This rug instantly gave our living room a lovely cosy feel, and is squidgy and thick under our feet. Having a 10 month old baby boy who is crawling and cruising around everywhere, we were concerned that he was tumbling all over our old carpet without much cushioning and landing with a very heavy thud. The Darwin rug is perfect for those little tumble and slips. Of course, it's not made of rubber foam and doesn't bounce him back (!) but it does give him just that little more padding. The putty colour is actually more on the gray side than cream or brown.

This rug has an unusual appearance - a mixture of tufts. Look closely before buying. I am happy with it but it was not quite what I was expecting.
A satisfactory purchase. Looks good and feels good underfoot.

Beautiful product made of natural fibres
I love our new rug! i ordered it online and it arrived 3 days later.
It is simpy beautiful. Very neutral colour. It works well in our cream and chocolate brown room and is very soft to walk on and feels warm to sit on.
A slight drawback is that it does lose a bit of fluff, especially if you are wearing black trousers/legings/tights and sit on it. Otherwise i cannot fault this quality item.
