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

The rug was well packaged. Anyway I rolled the rug out in the bedroom and placed the bed and nightstands on it. There is a slight odor when the rug is now rolled out but I opened a window and it was aired out. Nothing too terrible. OMG this rug felt like heaven under my feet (sorry for the comparison) but it felt soooo good when i walked on it. It is soft and thick enough. Based on the other reviews, I decided not to buy a rug pad. Believe me it is not necessary. You would not regret this purchase. The color is Ivory (cream color) and it is beautiful. The rug regularly brought everything together in the bedroom and it looked fab.
Ordered two of these on a whim and was VERY nervous (return shipping would be insane)! Just unwrapped this one and could not be happier! Color is amazing, does not shed and no smell! Quality is good however, not sure how long it will hold up. But, for the price… this cannot be beat! Would highly recommend!
Had been looking at a variety of low cost shag rugs at Ikea, Lowes, Home Depot, etc. The yarn felt skimpy and the pile was not very deep. I agonized over making choice for close to two months because I just couldn't find the quality I was looking for at the right price. I decided, after reading the reviews on this product to try this rug. WOW!!! This rug is lovely, and dense with a variety of yarn sizes to really create an amazing shag rug. Walking barefoot on this rug is a an absolute pleasure! I am so pleased with this purchase, and the price is absolutely right!
The only drawback is that the rug definitely has a new carpet smell and it was "off gassing" for a week at least. For those who may be sensitive to this sort of thing I have to mention it.
You also want to make sure you have a vacuum that can handle VERY dense deep pile before you get this one. All in all I LOVE IT! Great purchase!
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
