I loved this rug as pictured, which I thought was some darker color tempered with some orange shades and some khaki. what arrived was a rug that was very dark. Dark rich browns, ranging from very dark chocolate to mocha. The closest thing to orange was a dark shade of burnt sienna (remember the crayola box?). While the picture looks like there might be some slate gray or some close variant there was nothing even remotely close to that in the rug I got. The rug is beautiful, no doubt- nice thick high quality wool- but the colors did not work for me- I will sadly be returning it. I do wonder if there is some variability in dye lots or the rug I got was actually mislabeled and should have been sold as a different color. If you are looking for a rug with deep rich browns this might be the rug for you, but be warned that the overall look of the rug is very dark, not just some lines of dark tempered by lighter shades. With that said, I liked the rug enough to purchase it in the grey/green color for another room- haven't unrolled it yet to see how it works. keep a lookout for that review coming soon!Read More
I received this area rug within days after I ordered it. I'm an interior designer by trade and have used a lot of area rugs. This one has to be one of the more "eye-catching" rugs I have seen in a very long time! Very dimensional, and the price is unbelievable for the quality of this rug. One thing to note, if your sweeper has a rotating brush you may want to turn it off while sweeping as its not good for the rug......on a closing note horizon rug is the best company. I have bought many rugs from OS that luckily have their name on it. I hope horizon can put their name on the web so people can identify easily.Read More
I love this rug we have pets and vacuums pet hair like a dream as all wool rugs i have bought from you. price could not be beaten I tell anyone who comes in the house. Even the appraiser for our refinance commented on the rugs, as always we tell them they are from overstockRead More
Please believe everything excellent that you have read about this rug. It is in the center of my living room and everyone immediately remarks on how beautiful it is as soon as they enter the room. The colors on my computer didn't do it justice. It is truly a conversation piece. It sheds somewhat, but that is minor. I'm loving this rug and the new atmosphere it brings to my room!Read More
Based on reading the other reviews, I was comfortable with the possibility the coloring might be darker for where it was going to be placed. Although I don't mind the darker coloring, it truly is not remotely close to what is shown on the display picture...it's seems to me like the company possibly had multiple coloring options for this rug, and the picture is not for the right rug. As mentioned by others, the coloring is very dark browns - chocolate, dark mocha, and rust (almost red hues). There isn't light brown, golden brown, or orange...to me it's an "dark autumn feel" rug. The quality of the rug is beautiful and I like how the different colors are raised for a multi dimensional feel/look. Depending on your vaccum, this could be a possible challenge. I did not have a problem with extensive vaccuming. Very little shedding came off mine and there was no odor / "clean rug smell". Would have given the rug 5 stars if it wasn't for the drastic coloring difference (I'd post a picture if I could).Read More
I like the pattern ,but the colors are much more intense ( deeper , rich browns and rustic ) than the one i saw on line. Well made ! Sturdy ! Well packaged and no problem with delivery!Read More
The colour is darker then pictured, but is very plush and of great quality.Read More
Beautiful, textured, feels good on feet, great quality for the money. I've had it for a few months now, and it seems tough and cleans well, having endured sandy mud, baby stains and hairballs, still beautiful.Read More
Very attractive rug that matches my colors and furniture verywell. I have 4 dogs and needed a strong rug that would clean easily and last. As I just recently purchased this rug, it is now shedding as all wool rugs do in the beginning. It looks like a winner in stature....hopefully will get lots of wear out of it.Read More
I am very happy with Overstock.com. Their Chat customer service was great. I think I talked with 3 different people total, but all my needs were dealt with. I had measured the room where the rug was to go, but when it arrived I realized that it was just too big, even thought it physically fit in the space. I ordered a second rug of a slightly smaller size and it worked out great. I even got it on Dec. 23, which was a nice surprise. I expected the Christmas rush to slow things down!Read More
