The rug arrived promptly, is very well made, and looks gorgeous. My wife and I wanted a lightly rug that could work well in our living room. We have a light couch, so we were concerned a lighter rug might blend in and we were not interested in any significant patterns (oriental, chevron, etc.), so we decided to explore rugs with interesting textures. The rug has a dense hemp ply that alternates with a lighter wooly feeling weave. We were a little concerned about the texture, but after reading many reviews of similar rugs (same company, different colors & sizes, which Overstock lists on separate pages), we decided to give it a shot. It feels wonderful on our feet. It's a little scratchy against softer skin, but on bare feet, it's like a dream! After owning it for two weeks, there are two small drawbacks to address. There is a musty smell when you first open the rug from the package, which dissipated after about 10 days. I'm sure some Febreeze would have helped reduce the smell, but it only bothered me and my wife did not notice the odor. We're also noticing a bit of shedding/pilling already from the wooly part of the rug. It comes off in small clumps of nearly invisible hairs and is quite easy to clean. All around, this is a fantastic rug and an even better deal (we saw it retailing for $800+). Buy this puppy with confidence!

After reading the reviews before buying this rug, I could not tell if the colors pictured were lighter or darker, so I ordered by the written description. My goal was to get a rug that was not too dark and had multiple colors, for a room with neutral furniture and medium wood floors. The wall color will be decided from the shades in the rug. The predominant color is a medium aqua blue. The border is the same color. Other colors are bronze/brown, orange, dk. gold, pale gold, and putty beige. It is not the pale faded shades pictured online. The colors are quite vibrant, but the overall tone is medium. If you like those really faded, pale Oriental rugs, don't get it. If you like the dark serious Oriental rugs, don't get it.

I got this rug for a small sitting area in our mast bedroom. colors and appearance are exactly as in the picture. it is soft under barefeet, and stays in place pretty well with just a writing desk and chair at one end (I have not put a pad under it). unlike some of these "vintage" Persian/Oriental style rugs, it does not look "pixelated." I am very happy with this purchase and glad I "chased" it to overstock from a more upscale web site.

I bought this rug along with a matching 2x8' runner. There were significant color differences between the 6x9' and the runner version. While the design of both was clearly the same, the dye lots of the wool used to make them were very different. The larger rug appeared much more muted in color than you would assume from the online photo (e.g., in the larger rug, the lightest colors was a khacki beige while in the runner the corresponding design elements were a much different light yellow) While I'm not expert in oriental type rugs, the tightness of the design seemed "tighter" and more precise in the runner than in the larger rug. Since my plan was for these to be adjacent to each other, I decided to return both. If I had bought just one, I probably wouldn't have face the problems that I did and may have just kept the one. Heads up though - there does seem to be differences in dye lots with this rug and how closely the colors match up to the online photos might be an issue.

Very nice, very plush, rich color, elegant rug. Unfortunately for me the ivory of the border and central medallion is tinged toward the yellow/gold rather than white which did not work with the other room colors. If the colors work for you this is a spectacular rug. I was able to return the rug, a very easy process with the help of Overstock Customer Service, and purchased in its place the ******** Oriental Area Rug in the same red/ivory color scheme. The ******** rug at 256,000 points/square meter, while not as plush and finely detailed as this one at ~600,000 points/square meter, has a brighter red (cranberry rather than burgundy) and a much whiter ivory which proved a better compliment to my room colors.

I was on the fence about sending this carpet back, but decided on the path of least resistance and kept it. I still can't decide if I like it. But it's here doing its job in my living room. It's a good solution for not showing dirt - my husband has RLS and is always rubbing his shoes back and forth on the carpet in front of his chair. That is why I ordered it (plus it's kind of nice with my deep cobalt blue chairs) but it doesn't feel like it will hold up under much wear and tear. It is VERY blue. VERY. There is no other color to give it a feeling of richness and contrast, and it's true what others have said about it - it looks like a pixilated photo of an oriental carpet. I keep looking at it and wondering about it. It is kind of dramatic, but do I actually like it???...

This rug is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I just moved into a new apartment and I needed a rug that would match with my beige and chocolate brown sectional couch. I wanted to find an oriental rug that had a base color of brown, but also had blue accents. I looked and looked for an oriental rug that would have the colors I needed but would also have a pattern that was stylish. They image of this rug on the website is terrible! Don't pay attention to it. This rug is very vibrant. It is not drab or "vintage" looking like the image. It looks like a modern oriental rug. There are colors of light blue, green, some reds. The reason I bought the rug was because of the website's description. It also lists those colors and I just hoped it would work out. I was pleasantly surprised. The pattern is gorgeous, it's very soft, and it looks high quality. I have received many complements on this rug. I know I'll have this for a very long time. I highly recommend this fantastic rug!
