This is a high quality, thick pile rug. The background color is fairly close to what is pictured with maybe a slightly greener tint. It is basically neutral, but because my house has a lot of variants of green colors, that little bit of green tint was just enough to make it not match. So I sadly have to return it. The light blue color in the peacock feather is a robin's egg blue, the green is a fairly primary dark green. They stand out against the background, which could be good but also could be a challenge. It would be tricky to match this rug with other than a neutral wall color because of that. But if you can do it (or get the rug and then decide on a wall color) it is a nice rug! What is quite aggravating is that the cost to return it is $**! Had I known that when I ordered, I never would have taken the chance of ordering a rug like this without having the chance to have seen it first. I wish Overstock would give you the opportunity to better understand returning shipping implications- makes me not want to take a chance an order again.
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. The basic rug color is more beige than grey (as depicted in the O'stock photo). 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.
OK, enough with the complicated color descriptions. I had the hardest time figuring out what the color of this rug is with the product description and everyone's comments. I'd say it's chartreuse. Really though, it's going to depend on your lighting and paint in the room. Both will influence the shade and could bring out good and/or not so good attributes in the rug's color. I wanted it to be olive green, but it isn't and it looked absolutely terrible in my living room because I have terra cotta walls. Can you see it? Terra cotta walls and a chartreuse rug? Good night, it was my worst decorating nightmare. Now, my comments on color have nothing to do with the quality of the area rug. It is well-made, well-designed and simply beautiful. I moved it to my office (I am an editor and writer who works full-time from home), and it is absolutely perfect. I have a white desk, a beautiful wood mantel with an electric fireplace, an olive green velvet arm chair and two peacock Tiffany lamps. I can't say it enough, the room is stunning and that's due in large part because of the area rug. (P.S. I highly recommend checking out the peacock Tiffany table lamp on Overstock's website ... it's unusual and SPECTACULAR. I would especially look it up and consider it, if you are thinking about buying a peacock feather area rug. ;) I used a different peacock area rug from Overstock in my living room, it's beige with huge olive green peacock feathers on it, and it's gorgeous. I didn't even have to repaint, the terra cotta walls look fantastic with the mostly beige rug and it all pulls together well with my lovely curtains. One thing about the chartreuse rug: Have a good vacuum. There's a page you'll receive with the rug and it talks about shedding and how it is normal for a new wool rug. Trust me, this baby sheds. It isn't terrible, but I do need to vacuum a bit more. This is especially important with more people in the house because the more the rug is used/walked on, the more shedding there is. But it is beautiful, so I don't mind pulling out my vacuum a little more often.

The color was the same except for the light blue in the picture, instead the blue was brown, which was disappointing. However, my husband and I bought blue RIT dye, colored in what was supposed to be the blue layer of the peacock feather, and waalaa! Now, our rug looks just like the picture! Love it. Very hip and modern for our dining room. Great quality, thick pile, wool rug.

I love this rug!!! I'm so happy that I bought it for my dinning room! I just bought a house with dark hardwood floors and I now have a formal dinning area so I just knew that this was the rug to have. I didn't buy a rug pad for it but it doesn't need one. It's thicker and softer than I would have thought for wool. It's heavy so it stays in place. It's true to size but not color. It's not a dark sage as described. It's closer to a lighter sage with a hint of golden in color. The feathers are gorgeous and true to the colors shown. They're dark teal, med brown, sage, and black...so beautiful and the feathers really stand out! I've seen this same rug in catalogs and online and it's runs between $600.00-$800.00 plus shipping which is really expensive! I didn't have a problem with the color not being a true sage since I didn't have anything to match it with yet. I actually like it's true color better, it really makes the feathers pop and brightens up the room. I highly recommend this rug!

I saw this rug online on two high-end websites for $800 and this is the exact same rug, but for a much lower price! It is great quality and the colors are vibrant. It's not really a beige rug, so if that's what you're looking for- you may be disappointed. I'd say it's more of a chartreuse with mustardy undertones. It looks great with a variety of colors, though. I can't say enough about this rug- everyone who has seen it has loved it! I would absolutely recommend this rug to everyone.
The quality of this rug is wonderful. The color, however, is poorly represented by the photograph. Because it appeared beige to me, I bought it. And, when it arrived I was terribly disappointed; the background color was somewhere between mustard and chartreuse and not the least bit beige. As is usually the case, Overstock was terrific about prompt shipping and taking the item back. I hope this review is helpful!
This is a super lovely rug. The quality is excellent and the design is interesting. The colors are pretty accurate. Overstock delivers quickly and the price for such a quality wool rug is amazing. Thanks once again Overstock for providing such great value. Also, there is always a lot of shedding for a short period of time with a thick wool rug--but it is worth it.
The quality of the rug is good for the price, but the colors are awful. The background is ok, and about what I expected, but the design colors are darker and duller than shown. The green is a very dark dull forest, the inner rings are tan and an ugly yellowish beige, the centers are huge and a dull flat black. It has no life to it. THERE IS NO TRACE OF BLUE ANYWHERE IN THIS CARPET. Look at the 6x6 foot picture in the same style to get a better idea of what it looks like. I would not have ordered this carpet if I knew those where the colors.
This rug is awesome. I love the thickness and the colors, the only thing I wasn't prepared for was the amount it sheds. I've had it about two weeks and there are little wool rug pieces floating in the air and landing everywhere. Thank goodness I bought myself a canister vacuum.
Great rug for space it was purchased for.Described as sage green.I read the reviews,all said it was more chartreuse /lime green /gold.That was what I was looking for and the reviewers were accurate.Got the color I needed.Shedding stopped after few vacuumings.

This rug looked nice on the website, but in person, it is simply stunning! The "colors" are beautiful. Exactly the color that I needed in my living room. I am VERY pleased with this purchase and will be back in the future for other rugs. "
