I was so scared to purchase this rug because it was new to Overstock and had not been reviewed yet. So I feel obliged to review it since I rely on reviews so heavily. I abosolutely love this rug. We bought it to purchase a 5x7 wool rug that we purchased from Target a year ago that had the same colors in it. The previous rug was looped and wool and shedded so bad that it looked old and dirty within months. I can already tell that this will not be the case for this rug. This rug will be in our most lived in room which is our living room and we've had it about 2 weeks now. It took a little time for all the wrinkles and curling to go away but it is now flat and so pretty. It is so soft and I love how the colors are slightly gradient from one corner to the opposite corner (colors are bolder/darker in one corner and lighter/softer in the opposite), something that pleasantly suprized me when I recieved it. And this rug I can tell will already hold up better because we have already put it to the test: Dogs sleeping on it, we spilled spaghettio's on it yesterday and we have a crazy 2 year old and so far it hides all spills and fur wonderfully! I'm so glad I took a chance on it becase it was such a good value!
It's a great rug and works perfectly for the space. The one thing that I'll say I didn't expect is that with the "ivory" rug, it appears to look very light from one angle and darker from the other. Whichever color you pick will be more pronounced on one side of the rug, and with the ivory it looks very light from one angle and darker from the opposite. I'd upload pictures but not an option. Either way still love the rug, looks great in the living room.
Loved the rug when we got it! Noticed a strong smell but ignored it. Little by little my husband and I developed a horrible cough, burning eyes, sore and restricted throat. The doctor said my head and lungs had lots of fluid in them and I was so sick and in pain in my face and head, I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital because I was continuing to get sicker and sicker and more miserable. The Lord told me the rug was contaminating our house and to get it out which we did immediately. After several days of airing out the house and using an air filter with a carbon filter on the toxins, we could stay in the living room again without our eyes burning and starting to cough. We noticed the rug was made in China. Don't know what is in it but it will be a while before I try to bring it back into our living space. Hate that! I really enjoyed the look but it is not worth destroying my health for.
