It took me several weeks of looking on Overstock before I decided on this rug. We have owned this for two months. It does "shed" but I understand that is to be expected with a wool rug. Your vacuum cleaner bag will fill more quickly, but I would not call the shedding excessive. If you vacuum 2-3 times a week you should be able to deal with it, unless you're OCD about things like this! :) That's definitely not my MOD- "Martha does not live in my house!" The color description is accurate for the most part. The brown is more of a milk chocolate, rather than dark. The colors are slightly more muted than what I see on my computer monitor. The darker red in the rug is a muted cranberry, so just a little towards the red side in terms of hue. The peach tone you see is also slightly more muted than what I see on the monitor, and is a warmer tone. The light blue in the rug is more of a light gray-blue. Overall, the tones here are more on the warm side of the spectrum, but I do like that it does have a few tones on the cooler side that are complementary. I think it could work in either a warm or cool room with careful color choices. We have this in our living area in an Arts and Crafts - eclectic room with predomananently warm colors. The style and colors are perfect for us and we are pleased with the value and quality for the money It arrived in great shape, in less than a week. On the lighter side- our Pit Bull mix was so excited about this rug!! It replaced a much smaller area rug that he could not stretch out on. After it was down he rolled and rubbed all over it. I believe he thinks we got it just for him!
I love this rug! It is a beautiful accent to my newly renovated and painted living room. The colors seem true to the photo. My dogs enjoy laying on it and dirty paw prints cleaned up easily with a gentle spray on carpet cleaner. I am concerned that over time, the wool may peel if my dogs continue to lay on it but so far that hasn't been a problem in the 2 weeks I have had the rug.

This was a great rug! Unfortunately I had to return due to the colors not working for the room I was planning. There was also a small tear in the back of the rug. Overstock is the best for returns! I will be ordering the same rug but different colors.
