Bought the same rug in the 6ft square size and I'm extremely disappointed. 8 months after purchasing, the rug still sheds wool fibers. The manufacturer included a note saying it was natural for some shedding which is why I didn't return and complain immediately. They probably included that note so you wouldn't complain and 8 months later you're stuck with it. If you sit on the rug, fibers are all over your clothes. Vacuum the rug and the next day the loose fibers are back. Have to dust my coffee table everyday because the wool fibers end up on it. I got a good deal but I would never purchase a rug from Overstock again because they obviously don't care about the quality of the rug products they sell.
This is a high quality rug, but the one I received was completely green. In the photo, it looks like there are other colors (beige, grey). This is misleading. The entire rug was various shades of green, the predominant one being an olive color. It did not match with my furniture, so I returned it, and the return shipping fee was substantial.

I am disappointed with this rug for a couple of reasons: First, the colors are not as shown. In the picture, the ribbons look to be distinctly colored; in reality, the colors run more towards fat stripes running through the ribbons of raised pile. It is a VERY different aesthetic than what is shown. It looks cheaply made. Second, the ribbons are of different pile heights. Maybe I should have known that, but this rug is extremely difficult to vacuum - and we have an excellent vacuum, which generally cleans anything and everything. Third, it is very hard to spot-clean. I spill a lot, and so I'm pretty good at getting spots out of things - this rug holds on to the stains. I should have returned it, but I had already gotten rid of my previous rug and so I told myself that it would grow on me. It hasn't.
This rug is better than I expected. The quality matches rugs I looked at which were considerably higher in cost. My home decor is traditional antique New England yet this rug is appropriate. The sculptured texture adds an interesting design element without screaming for attention. I'm very happy with it!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The gold is darker than depicted. The lighter colors are more subtle in contrast than pictured.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Much better than what I was able to find locally with similar pricing. The rug is thick, soft, tightly woven, and feels great underfoot.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The actual colors are less starkly contrasted, but I love how it looks. The different shades meld or blend very well.
I've had this area rug for over a year now and I think it's sharp looking. My challenge is in the amount of shedding the rug still continues to do. It's definitely a lot thinner and it's annoying to need to vacuum constantly. It's too bad since I really love the design.
The rug's colors are darker than they look in the picture, and one shade of greens is more of a brown. I knew there would be some variation based on other reviews, so this wasn't a big deal to me. These are dyed with natural dyes, so I imagine they regularly differ. The quality of the rug seems very good, and I think it will last a long time. It's thicker than I thought it would be, and I love how it feels under foot. The shedding doesn't seem excessive. All in all, I am really happy with the purchase, and plan to make my next rug purchase an Alliyah rug!
I like the rug; the colors, the thickness...the style...BUT....it sheds and if I knew it was going to be this bad, I'd never ordered it! Not the value of***!! The color in the picture is misleading. I don't know if it is the lighting of the camera when the pic was taken, but it is not the same color I saw online. NOT EVEN CLOSE! It is waaaay tooo green in color. I've had it for over a month now, and continuously vacuum it---the rug still sheds! I hope this will eventually cease; but then I may have no more rug when it does... lol Don't waste your money on this !
I'm very happy with this rug, as well as the larger matching one purchased at the same time. It is exactly as described, and reading other reviewers' comments helped a lot too. It is well made, has a good weight and depth, is unique, and has not sheding at all. The two rugs fit perfectly into our living room. My husband and I feel we got an exceptionally good deal on these rugs for the quality and style. I would buy from Overstock without hesitation in the future.
I LOVE this rug & knew it would be perfect in our family room the minute I saw it online! The colors are beautiful & vibrant! I bought a thicker felt pad to go under it, which it didn't really need, but it's nice to have the extra cushion!!!
love this rug. It is the perfect choice for my office. The colors were true from the picture. Excellent quality at a great price. Shipping was extraordinarily fast and especially since I ordered the rug during the peak holiday period.
