I absolutely love this rug! It's so beautiful and soft, and although was very affordable, looks quite expensive. My only issue with the rug is the color. Based on the picture and other reviews, I expected it to be more silver/gray which is exactly what I needed to match my living room. In person however, it is much more blue-ish gray, and I was very surprised by that. I have been looking for a rug for months, and have already returned a different one, so I am not going to hassle with returning it. Luckily my apartment is very eclectic so it's not a HUGE deal that the color doesn't match perfectly, but you may want to reconsider if you are looking for something that is a true gray.

We love this rug! I agree w/ other reviews that the color is a grey tinged w/ a bit of blue. However, when I see the photo as depicted by Overstock, it looks grey/blue. So the title may be a bit misleading but the photo is spot on. It is very thick and plush and looks/feels expensive. I have yet to test for the shedding issue others complain of but I did have to slide a desk and loft bed legs over the rug surface and didn't see a bit of shedding. If it becomes a problem, I will make sure to alter this review but for now, it's perfect!

Basics: The color is more of a bluish gray, which was perfect for me. The description adv the rug was composed of gray/black/and off white threads. I was elated to read this as this was the exact description of the weave of the fabric on my sectional sofa which had been almost impossible to match. This rug complimented my sofa wonderfully and looks so chic and expensive. I continue to receive tons of compliments on the rug despite my complaint. My Complaint: I ordered this rug despite the reviews and complaints regarding the shedding. I've had that experience with wool rugs prior, so I expected it to shed quite a bit in the beginning. I'd recommend that should you not heed to my review and purchase this rug, also purchase a bagless vac to clean it. Each time I'd go over the rug with my bagless vac, the canister would fill up twice! This occurred for at least the first six months of owning the rug. I should add that I purposely waited until after I'd owned the rug for over six months before writing a review as the paperwork that arrived with it (what little there was) advised that the rug would shed for up to six months. This much is true, however, it still sheds, just not as much as when I first received it. What was shocking to me and most disappointing is that big chunks of the rug would come off at times and without reason. I expected shedding, but this was down right appalling! In the beginning, pieces would come out in inconspicuous places, but after awhile, pieces would come out by the edges. One side of the rug actually looks as if some small rodent has eaten chunks out of it! I would rotate this rug every other month so that it would receive wear evenly as I have it positioned slightly under a sectional sofa. Now, I no longer have that option. I've owned it for less than a year. I'll have no other choice than to purchase another rug in the very near future. This has been big disappointment.

I was looking forward to receiving the rug. I expected the color to be a little on the bluish gray side after reading some of the other reviews. The ivory however is beige and not ivory. It looks terrible with my white desk. The color looks dirty against white. It is a shame. The quality of the rug is very nice. It is nice and thick. I am sending it back and having to paid $*to ship it back. I think overstock needs to describe it better and post a picture with the true color. If it looked like the picture they have online I would have been happy with my purchase.
Our only disappointment is that the rug is more of a beige and denim (darker than it looks on screen). This rug is very comfortable under your feet; our cat finds it cozy enough for sleeping. As far as shedding, it's not too bad-comparable to the frequency of cleaning for pet shedding-and I just take a second every few days to grab the little pieces I notice. Heed the advice of another reviewer and use the vacuum without brush setting to discourage shedding.
My rug was delivered properly in its time frame and packaging was easy to unwrap alone. I loved the rug's design statement and the price worked in my budget, but I was most concerned about color. I'm delighted to say the blue cast-grey color rug is as pictured. The stunning rug compliments my grey leather sofa and my blue cast-grey living room walls.(wisteria snow). Shedding is minimal and the rug is easy to vacuum. I couldn't afford the larger size rug, but I wish I did. Brilliant rug!
I waited a few weeks before writing this review as some of the customers have said the rug shed excessively. Based on my experience with wool rugs, while the rug does shed, it is not an excessive amount. It is however vacuumed every other day in our flat as we have 2 small children. Gorgeous colouring- it is definitely a bluish grey or even purplish grey with ivory rather than a true grey but I wanted this as i have a blue armchair. Thick and plush, the quality is amazing and international shipping in 3 days is just amazing.
Empty nester, remodeling daughter's bedroom into a feminine office. I originally bought this in the 6x9 and placed it in the empty room with newly painted Gray walls, and thought this is definitely not me. It initially looked purple when I opened it, but once laid out, it is a very nice gray and went with the gray wall beautifully. It it definitley a gray rug, but lighting can affect the look. My walls are painted BM Stonington Gray. When my new white gloss parsons table, and a modern white "leather" office chair from Overstock arrived, I rolled out the rug again, and OMG. It is stunning! Definitely the modern, young, femine updated look I am going for. I am retuning the 6x9 for the 5x8 as my door cannot open over the edge of the 6x9, and the 5x8 will be a perfect fit. Beautiful rug. Recommended.
I'm pretty satisfied overall. The design and the feel is pretty good. But there is one thing I would really reconsider of buying wool material. It shed alot. I had vacuumed around 5 times and every single time it filled up my Dyson vacum fast. I don't know how long it will take to stop sheding. My girlfriend bought a wool material rug before me. She complained about it too. I didn't realize it would be this much.
this rug is lovely. the colors are pretty brighten up my living room. it is definitely an interesting. Because it was such a good price and I love the rug so I hope that it will last few good years!!!

I purchased this rug about 3 weeks ago. Arrived approx. 9 days later. It was well wrapped for the cross-country transit. It is a wonderful quality, thick wool carpet. Colors are vibrant but not overpowering. No matter it gives a terrific contrast & blends well against my Pecan floor and grey stone fireplace. This is a quality rug and the money was well-spent on its purchase. It should provide many, many useful years of service. It doesn't shed and it has no smell. I recommend this rug enthusiastically.
