The gray in this carpet is extremely blue! It does not flow well with other grays and whites and looks very dingy"Read More
The carpet sheds but after reading all the other reviews I am hoping it stops soonRead More
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!Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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!Read More
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.Read More
