Having searched both local oriental rug stores, home improvement stores, done exhaustive searches on the Internet, Overstock.com not only had exactly what I wanted, but had several choices at prices I couldn't say "no" to. Slightly reticent to buy a large area rug based on a website thumbnail photo, I bought this runner and was highly impressed by its quality, and by its depiction on Overstock.com's site. The runner prompted me to go ahead and buy two more matching rugs for a savings in the thou$and$! With the low shipping cost and prompt delivery, don't shop anywhere else - tell the world - Overstock.com is a real gem.
These are really beautiful and a great value for the price. I bought two burgundy runners, the colors are very rich and the design nicely detailed. They have the look and feel of much more expensive rugs. Keeping in mind that these are not wool, and not particulary thick, I cannot see how anyone could be disappointed.
Cheap, doesn't look anything like the picture, got the blue runner which was actually a very dark navy, very thin, very coarse and looks like something I could have gotten from ******** for half the price. If it didn't cost so much to ship back it would totally be on its way.
I bought the burgundy rug and it was a little more red than burgundy. It does have a jeweled quality to it, due to the type of material used. I use it as an entry way rug and on wood you definitely need a pad, because it slides. It laid flat soon after unrolling it. Overall it was a good buy for the price.
The colors that are most prominent in these runners are a very dark moss green, navy and cream. I was hoping for a lighter blue as in the pictures. The runners are under average in workmanship, look ok and I guess are worth the money. Received the runners promptly, but won't be sending them back because of the high return costs.
We bought two of the runners after purchasing the larger rug that matches for our living room. We are very pleased with the color, workmanship & cost of both the rug & runners. We've had several compliments on the rugs from family & friends visiting our home, who are shocked at the value of the rug & runners. We are extremely pleased with our purchase.
