This rug is gorgeous! Exceeded my expectations so much! I love how the pattern is larger on the 8 x 10 as it helps my room seem larger than it really is. If you want to see a better view of the rug, see it on my blog here: 346living.com/2011/06/01/my-rug-addiction-continues
It's super soft and thick which is great and I also only noticed a small amount of shedding, nothing a good vacuum a week couldn't handle.
The color is more blue, but I do see hints of slate gray under certain lighting, either way I love everything about it!
I haven't purchased this rug yet, but was reading the reviews. I noticed so many people complaining about it shedding. Just in case you are reading those reviews and don't know or understand quality. You want a rug that sheds, this means its a natural fiber. Wool rugs will sheds for several months before they stop. So don't let that hinder you from your purchase, as I guess some people don't understand what a good quality product comes with.
On one end of the rug, there were very light light bluish white spots. It seems maybe the color wasn't saturated all the way through or maybe it was used by someone previously and sprayed some bleach on it--who knows. Anyways, it was bothering me enough to return it. Also, it shed like CRAZY. I had vacuumed twice a day for 2 weeks straight and it still filled up my dyson all the way. I know from past experience a good quality rug will not shed like that. Quality wools rugs have very small minor shedding, this rug was extreme shedding.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate for the most part
I poured over reviews of this rug for several days before purchasing because I was enamored with the design but fearful of all the horrible shedding stories I heard in the reviews. I took the leap, purchased the rug and it has been fantastic. We have had it for several weeks to a month now and I have had zero shedding problems, at least nothing noticeable. If you get down at eye level with the rug you can see a few miniscule fibers on the surface, but it is a very thick hand-tufted rug, so this is normal. And it is so minor I haven't even thought about vaccuuming every other day like some of the other reviewers. Great design, great price for the size, no massive shedding issues - don't be dissuaded by the bad reviews.

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this rug. I get so many compliments on it, and the rug is SO plush and soft, and feels MUCH more expensive than it actually is. It does shed a little bit, but the shedding does go down and let me tell you it's not that bad and it's definitely worth the $$!

The quality of the rug seemed nice, but there was tons of shedding. There's debate on here over whether shedding indicates a quality or a chintzy rug- to be honest, I'm not sure how that works, and I don't care. While I loved the tufting, multidimensionality, softness, and thickness of the rug, the color was off. I was expecting more on the gray end of the spectrum, but this rug was bluish gray - think a popular decor blue used in the 80's and 90s. The more I stared at the rug, the more I knew it wasn't going to work for my decor, and the more I disliked the blue. The shedding combined with the color was a dealbreaker for me. Luckily, Overstock was great about me returning it, and I was able to find another rug.
I originally bought this rug in the 6x6 square for my foyer, and loved it. Even though it gets a lot of traffic, the shedding is manageable and it looks great. My foyer opens up to a formal living room/ sitting room, so I decided to purchase the same rug in the 8x10 size to match. Unfortunately the rugs do not match! The blue/ gray color is the same, but the cream border as stated in the product description is not. The original 6x6 rug is cream, but the 8x10 has a gray border. I suppose you get what you pay for- maybe different dye lots explain the difference, but they really aren't even close to the same color. If you only plan to buy one rug, the color difference might be acceptable, and it really is an attractive, plush rug. If there's a chance you need more than one, I don't recommend taking the chance unless you're willing to return ship a very heavy rug.
Love Overstock for rugs! Great selection, durable and fashionable rugs. Yes, this rug "shed" a lot at the beginning, I had a party a few days after putting it down and there were tufts of wool all over. But it stopped shedding in a few weeks and now doesn't do it at all. The rug has stood up great to nightly wrestling matches between my two large dogs, too. I would recommend getting a pad for underneath it if you're going to use it in a living or family room.
Bought this about a year ago and am still very happy with it. It's gentle underfoot and it cleans up nicely. Love the color - but my daughter bought the same carpet and it's definitely a different shade of gray so be prepared for it PERHAPS to not be exactly as the picture shows.
