Olefin area rug: good or bad?
November 4, 2010 7:50 AM Subscribe
We're looking at getting a new area rug and we've found several that we like, but they're made of Olefin/polypropylene. This rug will be maybe 8' by 10' and for the living room. A couch with a chaise will be sitting on top of it but not a whole lot of traffic goes through that area. Googling provides info on what Olefin is, how it's made, pros/cons, etc., but does anyone here have any personal experience with owning an Olefin rug? How does it wear or feel after a while? Should we rule it out and go for wool or nylon or something else? Any insight is appreciated.
