“ Brand: Freemans / Type: Rug „
I like to regularly update the look of my flat. I'm constantly buying things and spend a small fortune on my home...after-all home is where the heart is! I do browse Freeman's & the K&Co websites rather often for bargains as they tend to do alot of sales and I can spread payments and get free home delivery and returns so I feel that I have nothing to lose. My living room is rather neutral in colour with light green curtains and carpet, beech furniture and a cream sofa and chair. I wanted a mat for ages to put down in front of my tv on the cabinet as I felt my floor looked a bit bare and neglected and thats when I stumbled across this rug and I liked it because the city scene n it reminded me of London and once upon a time I lived there so felt it was relevant to me lol. In Sizes: 60 x 110 cm (24 x 44 ins) 80 x 150 cm (32 x 60 ins) 120 x 170 cm (48 x 68 ins) 135 x 190 cm (54 x 75 ins) 160 x 230 cm (64 x 92 ins) 200 x 290 cm (79 x 116 ins Now these all range in prices of course as they are all different measurements mine was the smallest offering at 60x110cm and cost me £12.00 and I did think it would be really small considering I have no idea of measurements but actually its rather large! 80 x 150cm is £30.00, 200 x 290cm is £175.00, 160 x 23cm is £110.00, 135 x 190cm is £80.00 and 120 x 170cm is £60.00. In colourscheme all sizes are the same, a lightish beige all over the top with a sight pile feeling to it with black buildings depicted. The black colour is rich in pigment, some of the building has windows shown which are the beige of the mat showing and contrasting through and some have a slight carved look to them with a sort of greyish colour over them to make them stand out a little and look like they have a moonlight shine to them. You have tower blocks and the likes all in a row and in different shapes and sizes. The material used is polypropylene pile and it is wipe over shampoo clean only and the the back of the mat is lightly corded though has no real grip to it and on my carpet it moves about a bit too easily. Now this mat came to me rolled up tightly. On the instructions I was told to lay it flat for about 24 hrs and it would flatten however after a few weeks this still looks slightly curved up at the edges and wee bit tatty. The edges are folded over making the mat look bulky and not as flat as I would like it to be. However this is soft to sit and stand on and looks of decent quality till you peer at those faulty looking edges that it has. Its easy enough to wipe clean though but do remember this is mainly light beige in colour. it is a s pretty versatile styled mat for wherever you want to put it but I wouldn't put it on shiny and/or laminate floors cos you could end up skating all over the place if your not mighty careful! Not a bad mat but certainly not the best quality Freeman's has to offer!
