Let’s look at the various aspects of the rug and my experience over the 2 years of ownership.

I’m sharing a video and pictures at different angles and in different lights to give you a true picture of what it looks like in real life. 

The 4 most important features when buying a rug:

  1. How does it hold up / wear with regular foot traffic?
  2. Is it easy to clean?
  3. Will it feel good on bare feet?
  4. Are the colors a good fit with my decor?

Then of course does it come in the size that I need?

So let’s look at what I think about the Pottery Barn Finn Rug: 

Wear and Tear

This rug literally sits in the highest traffic area of my home!

The Finn rug is in the main pathway of my home running from the front door to the garage and up the stairs.

It also is the first thing people see, when they walk through the front door. 


This rug experiences MAJOR foot traffic and it is the largest open space I have in the house so we are in this space everyday.

All packages are dragged onto and opened on the Pottery Barn Finn rug! Boxes are dirty and heavy. 

Not only are boxes on this rug, but also gardening tools and rolling suitcases!

Has the Finn Hand-Knotted Rug worn well? YES!


There have been NO issues with this rug and it looks as good as it did the day I bought it.

The pile is very low, so you won’t have to worry about snags or pet claws easily getting caught.

Is it Easy to Clean and How Does it Feel?

You may not realize that in Charlotte, NC we don’t have regular dirt.

Instead we had RED CLAY and it can be tough to clean out of rugs and carpets.

With this rug being 100% wool, I was a little concerned it may be hard to clean.

Is the Finn Hand-Knotted Rug easy to clean? YES!


It sure is and surprisingly so.

Dirt from the bottom of boxes, red clay, dog messes, etc. has all been easy to clean off of the rug.

To be safe, I always clean up spills and dirt IMMEDIATELY so they don’t get ground into the fibers.

All it takes is a little Resolve Carpet Cleaner and paper towels to blot up the spot. 

Great right? Plus it feels soft on your feet!

My dog Mick loves to lay on this rug and rub his back too.

This is where I throw his toy to play catch, so he spends a lot of time on this rug.

Is the rug soft on your feet? YES!

If you buy the rug, now you have an idea of what color to paint the walls too 🙂

Truly the rug has a very soft tone giving it a vintage rug look even though it is new. 

That will make it work in a wide variety of styles and with a good variety of colors.
