I bought this rug after reading the many positive reviews on all the "Cozy Solid Ivory" rugs on Overstock up through this size (note: I noticed the item numbers are related for all the rugs up to the 8.5'x12' rugs, but the poorly-reviewed 9.5'x13' rug is a very different item number, which may explain the difference - I ordered the 8.5x12 to be on the safe side and am glad I did). Other positive reviews are spot-on. The rug is so, so plush and soft without being too shaggy (fibers are about 1.25" long) and you can't feel the backing through the rug like so many cheaper shag rugs. The rug is made up of two thicknesses of same-colored warm ivory fiber, which adds some additional texture (the skinnier fibers are also twisted tighter which adds to this effect), and I hope will hide dirt. The rug smells like polypropylene rugs do the first day or two, but the smell is dissipating quickly. Having a dog and kids, I was worried this rug wouldn't be able to be vacuumed, but my Dyson handles it very well (no shedding!), and even my Roomba seems to do okay, though it occasionally hiccups when trying to climb up onto the rug. It adds a nice design element to my old home and sets off my darker leather furniture, while also making the living room look so much more inviting, bright, and comfortable. Couldn't be happier.

This is a great buy. This rug is super soft and looks very high quality -- and the price is really incredible. I didn't even place a matt under it (I didn't think it was necessary). Don't be afraid to buy it. It's a go!

I had my eye on this rug for a while and finally decided to go for it. I am so happy I did! It really makes my bedroom look complete. It's really nice to step out of bed onto this soft fluffy rug in the morning. Even my husband commented how much he likes it! The color is not as white as picture though. I'd have preferred more white ivory and this is definitely a cream color but it still looks okay. Another great quality bargain from O.Co!

Buying something as huge as a carpet online is always a risk. But with the price and the handful of excellent reviews, I took the chance. I LOVE the carpet. It is plush and nice, I've been sliding under the bed storage containers and work out on the carpet, there is no fuzz. For the price of a carpet this size, this is an amazing value. I'm telling my brother to buy the same one. Living in NYC, it was a huge plus to have this delievered at no charge. This carpet is 55lbs... so you will need help carrying it.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. For the price, it is amazing. I got this rug on sale, $100 less than what it is listed now. Even for $100 more, I would have been happy with the quality of the product

Added wood floors to family room but still wanted the comfort of carpet. This rug did the trick. It is soft and beautiful and for the price, you can't beat it. Everyone wants to lay on the rug instead of sitting on the couch since it so soft and comfortable. Great find and purchase!!
I love this rug - great color, size and feel. Showed up at my door ontime and went right down on my floor. It has the "new rug" smell for a couple of days, but other than that it is great. I'm looking to buy a second one for another room.
I HAVE LOOKED FOR A BEAUTIFUL THICK "REAL" SHAG RUG FOR MONTHS AND KEPT COMING BACK TO THIS ONE EVERY TIME. EVEN THOUGH THE REVIEWS WERE TYPICALLY POSITIVE I WAS HESITANT TO ACTUALLY GO THROUGH WITH THE PURCHASE ONLINE WITHOUT FEELING THE QUALITY AND SOFTNESS OF THE RUG FIRST. I'AM SO GLAD I WENT AHEAD AND ORDERED THIS RUG!! NOT ONLY IS IT A VISUALLY BEAUTIFUL RUG BUT IT IS ALSO VERY THICK AND PLUSH (TIGHTLY WOVEN WITH NO SIGHT OF THE BACKING BETWEEN FIBER STRANDS) IT IS EXTREMELY SOFT AND FEELS WONDERFUL UNDERFOOT. I DID PUT DOWN A 1/4 INCH FELT PAD UNDERNEATH BUT HAVE A FEELING YOU MAY NOT NEED A PAD. THE COLOR IS ALSO BEAUTIFUL. TRUE IVORY-NO YELLOW CAST- MORE OF AN OFF-WHITE. PERFECT TO HIDE ANY EVENTUAL WEAR. MY FAMILY LOVES TO LAY ON IT AND I HAVE NOT HAD ANY SHEDDING OR ODOR ISSUES. I USE A SHARK NAVIGATOR VACUUM ON IT WITH NO DIFFICULTY AND IT VACUUMS UP WELL NO MATTING AT ALL. I WAS GOING TO PURCHASE DIRECT FROM A CARPET MILL IN GEORGIA THAT OFFERED AMAZING 3INCH SHAG RUGS FOR A REASONABLE PRICE BUT STILL WOULD HAVE PAID AN ADDITIONAL $300-400.00 OVER WHAT I PAID OVERSTOCK. I'AM VERY HAPPY WITH MY CHOICE!!! IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING PURCHASING THIS RUG DON'T PUT IT OFF FOR MONTHS LIKE I DID. YOU WON'T REGRET IT. FANTASTIC OVERSTOCK PURCHASE!!( F.Y.I .I DID GET THIS DURING A PROMOTIONAL SALE FOR UNDER $***ENJOY!!!)
Hello ebjo, this rug does have a light shed, if you keep it vacuumed for the first few weeks regularly then it shouldn't shed to bad. Thanks for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 15, 2014
I didn't really notice ANY shedding at all, and I've gone through two of these. They're super soft and cute, but I finally had to get rid of it though because my dogs kept thinking it was grass :)myaccount1 on Aug 16, 2014
Hello apbmc, This rug is beautiful! We recommend you vacuum your shag rugs at least once a week. Most manufacturers recommend disabling beater bars and brush bars when vacuuming shag rugs. I hope this information helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 8, 2014
I'm able to vacuum it with my dyson animal (life changing vacuum by the way). It takes a little more effort than with my flat rugs, but I haven't had a problem so far.smt6810 on Apr 9, 2014
I vacuum it with my dyson also just a little slower,it's a beautiful rug!satisfiedsandra1 on Apr 13, 2014
