Just got this rug today. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality - it's way softer than I had imagined, for the price. We have it on carpet; I would definitely go with a thick rug pad if you're putting it on a hard floor. It's not very thick. But the color is fantastic - very saturated almost indigo blue - goes very nicely with the teal and turquoise accents in my home. I've never been disappointed with an Overstock purchase, and this rug is one of the best!
This rug is under my diningroom table with gold and white striped chairs and a gold leaf mirror on one wall. All the colors accent each other. It is a colorful, elegant, rich but also light and happy feeling. It is on white maple floors. Looking close this rug has a bit of many colors. It is thick enough that I didn't feel it necessary to have a pad underneath it and it doesn't move around when vacuuming. For the money it is very nice. I love area rugs but tend to get tired of them after a few years and look forward to a change. It was delivered to my door within a week. I am very pleased with the look and quality...for less than $**** and free shipping I am now waiting for another rug: item 11361663.
I purchased the rug in ivory. We were looking for an accent color of navy blue. Since that is not an "in" color right now it was difficult to find, so I was happy to see this rug. I would say that the color is true to what is on screen. I just wish that overstock would have separate pictures for each of the colorways that is available. The rug was purchased for my husband's office and it doesn't look too girly. It is comparable in thickness and quality to a rug from a home improvement store. We wanted a manmade fiber as we have little boys and a thinner rug for the desk chair to roll on. This rug fits the bill. We did buy a rug pad for added comfort. For the size and quality I would consider it a good value.
My mom was looking for an area rug for her living room. We looked at a few stores around town and they were rather expensive. When I looked on Overstock.com I couldn't believe that the price was so great. It saved us $100 buying it from Overstock. I was wondering if the rug would be of good quality since the price was so good but when we received it we were very pleasantly surprised. The rug was beautiful and of very good quality. My mom is very pleased and I am very jealous because I bought mine from a home improvement store and it was much more and this rug is just as nice. We also received it very quickly. I am very happy with Overstock.com. Thanks!
Highly recommended. The carpet goes with a multitude of colors.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colors are more vibrant than shown in the pictures.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent, I've had it about a year and it has maintained it's color and there have been no signs of wear. I have two dogs and a cat (and they shed like crazy). A quick vacuum and it looks like new.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The pictures don't do justice to how crisp and colorful the carpet is.
This rug was the first thing I purchased from Overstock.com, so I was skeptical! It arrived in just a couple days, was packed well and I was exremely pleased! It is just the right size for my dining room and the color is perfect. I have it on hardwood floors, but it does not slip as I have the table & chairs sitting on it. Very pleased and have since purchased other items!

The ivory colored rug is very yellow compared to the picture, and the other colors are somewhat garish, particularly when bright sunlight comes in the window. This rug looks much better in a dark room with artificial lighting. The pattern is also a bit odd looking compared to a real oriental rug. It's more of a caricature of an oriental rug, screaming "imitation" in almost every way. In other words, the picture on the site looks way nicer than the actual product does in-person. This is not one of those things you should buy sight unseen... That said, for the price, it's a very serviceable rug. It's got a soft feel underfoot despite an extremely low pile. I just wish I'd done more comparison shopping in a store...it was definitely a post-holiday euphoria impulse buy. BEWARE: the overstock website gave me the impression that this rug was returnable...from what I can tell, that is not the case. Be sure you're willing to eat the cost of this thing if you end up hating it.

This was a great buy and looks great too!! I bought the Ivory and it was exactly as I pictured it. It fit the room perfect becuase I have dark furniture. I even got compliments on the rug and how great it looks in my office. What I was worried about was that it would fuzz and the fuzz would get all over the room, but to my surprise it does NOT fuzz!! I think I will be buying more of these rugs to replace the one in my family room and for my mom, who is also looking to buy a rug. I am very happy as this was a great deal!! I also bought the padding to go with it, which was great becuase it feel soft to walk on.

The Caroline Herati rug has been a beautiful addition to our home. I mistakenly ordered the wrong color (Burgundy instead of Ivory) and am thankful for my mistake. The colors are vivid and true, and the value of this large area rug for the price is exceptional. I am next looking forward to purchasing the carpet pad to increase the softness and thickness. However, even without a pad, this rug is wonderful to walk on with bare feet. Was so pleased, I purchased 2 Caroline Herati runners in the complimentary ivory color. Enjoy your new rug, it will not disappoint. Hats off to Overstock.com - the delivery was quicker than I expected!
I bought this rug after endlessly looking for an inexpensive large area rug for my living room. Was nervous about ordering it online but absolutely love the way it looks. Color is perfect. I received the rug 1 day earlier than scheduled. Extremely happy with this purchase. Highly recommended.
We ordered the cobalt rug. The rug was beautiful and seemed nicely made. We had to return it, however, because the blue color didn't match the room we got it for. I called overstock around 3 days after we got the rug. The lady for customer service was exceptional. Instead of making me lug the huge rug to a shipping store she scheduled UPS to come to the house and pick it up. Easy return.
Just received the Cobalt 7x11, the Ivory 5 x 7, and the Burgundy runner. Excellent quality and quick delivery. The Cobalt is a bit darker than the picture and the ivory has a lot of gold highlights. The Cobalt blue is closer to a royal blue. The Burgundy runner matches the picture. Great price for the quality. Would recommend the Cobalt or Burgandy in a light colored room. Gives a nice elegant look!
I was surprised this rug got such good reviews. I have bought 6 rugs from Overstock and have been very happy. Unfortunately, this one I had to return. I purchased the burgundy color and it had way too much blue in it for our decor. In addition, the design on it seemed digitized or pixilated if that makes sense. The other rugs we have purchased had clearer design pattern so it made this one look cheap. From a distance it wasn't bad, but up close…not so much. I probably could have lived with it, but my husband hated it and thought it looked really cheap.
