I love this rug! I looked for the "perfect" coloring for months. I think this is the most beautiful blue rug on Overstock... lots of color. The blue is a bit more muted than the picture, as it comes off as somewhat of a solid teal. But it still very colorful and has a nice intensity nonetheless. I think it appears this way because the weave is a mixture of a medium to dark teal and dark denim blue woven together. I was happy to see that the variety of the other colors are just as they appear in the picture (gold, peach, sage not just a variety of tans, as they claimed. Then there are the jade and deep wine/red). I was afraid the "tan" shades would be more blah and less varied so I posted a question on Q & A. So yes, there are LOTS of colors (check the Q & A button for my question on the colors for a true description of the colors represented, as the product description is short on a number of colors). It is a very high class rug in appearance; very at home in a country, rustic, or transitional home. For that reason I like that it is more transitional/Euro-American than Oriental. The only drawback was that I was expecting a plush rug, so that was a bit of a disappointment. Still, I can't send it back because it is so beautiful! The texture is like a very thick, heavy and tightly woven Mexican blanket; though much more rug like than any blanket. So it isn't flimsy at all. Don't take me wrong... it is definitely a high quality and heavy rug. It is rough in texture, not soft underfoot, and slightly scratchy. Definitely needs a pad.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Picture makes the blue seem darker, more solid
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Nice, but thinner... because it is not a plush rug, but high quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? It did not describe as many colors as was truly in it - so see the Q&A for a better description
I've been in search of a rug for quite a while. Here were my requirements: Wool (My husband insists wool is best) NOT hand tufted (I ordered a sample of a hand tufted rug from a certain ** and my cat destroyed within a day) No excessive shedding. Durable, this was going under our only dining table. Hides any stains well (see table comment above- I have small children) This rug does ALL of those things. My husband was worried that because it was woven instead of knotted, and it might wrinkle a lot, but with a rug pad under it, we have zero problem. It's high quality, pretty thick for a woven rug, and quite attractive. It doesn't shed at all, my cat's claws seem to do no damage. My only issue was that the color in the trim looks like a light gold/beige to me in the picture, but in reality, it's quite gray. It almost caused me to send it back but the blue in it is really attractive and I like the hints of other colors- reds, olives, golds. I just wish they weren't on dark greige. I expected an overall lighter feel to it. The blue is actually a pattern of a light and darker blue. I think it looks almost teal. It's quite scratchy, but in our dining area that doesn't matter. If it was in an area you planned on spending time on the floor, be aware of that. Overall, I am very happy with it! Plus, I used the O rewards I earned for buying the rug to order an 8x10 rug pad that ended up costing me ***. Awesome.
This rug is very pretty. It's very blue...like an indigo blue and fairly dark and rich with color. It looks like a rug that would fit well in a den. It is well made and the negatives are that it is a very busy print and kind of gives me a headache when I look at it too long - because there is so much going on in this rug. If you like busy, you'll probably love this rug, but if you like simple and basic, this rug is not for you. Also, this rug is flat-weave. Don't be confused by the description since it says hand-knotted and has a pile height. It is thick but it is a flat-weave carpet and probably very durable. Unfortunately I am returning it because I was confused by the description noting pile height, hand-knotted, and flat-weave all in one! What??
