Color is not as shown in the picture (actual rug is not as vibrant a color) and it sheds terribly. While shedding is to be expected, when this rug sheds it actually exposes holes in the rug and bare patches. We have it in our playroom so that's not a big deal but I would not put this in a living room or bedroom as it looks warn way too quickly. That said, it's a thick and soft rug so not bad for the kids. Would not purchase again or recommend to a friend.
I ordered the 6x9 rug in the gray/charcoal color. In the picture, it looks very contrasted between light and dark gray. In reality, there is only a slight variation of color which is darker, greener, and stripier than in the picture. It is thick and comfortable, however.
This rugs looks so nice in my living room and I get nice comments BUT it constanlty sheds, which really annoys me. People leave and I end up picking up pieces of it and when I vacuum it, it almost fills up the canister- this after having it for over a year- eventually there will be nothing left!
Beautiful, jewel like color - the rug's appearance is lovely. However, I've had the rug for 60 days+; it is in the family room and constantly sheds pile. (And, I do mean constantly!) It's like the rug is losing it's winter coat. I pick up loose rug piles all the time, and when I vacuum, the pile chokes the vacuum (due to the amount of pile that comes off of this rug). Who knew??
