I do really like this rug first off.. But it is much brighter on the web site the blue is more of a dingy blue in person and the circles are not solid colors they are marbled, the brown circles on the site are actually more burgundy with whiteish flecks.I would have preferred to have them be solid and I wish the color that I thought was brown was actually brown. I am happy with it still and it is cute.. I have seen no evidence of shedding at all, I haven't worn dark pants and sat on it or anything but I vacuumed it with my dyson and it didn't seem to shed at all into it.. I think it is pretty well made compared to a *** rug that I have and vacuumed the first time and filled the vacuum over and over again.. WELL hope the info helps make your decision...
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? more muted.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quaility seems good.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Middle of the road.
This rug is very cute (we bought it for our new baby's room), and it's great, but it definitely needs to be vacuumed often - as in everyday at first - due to shedding. If you don't vacuum everyday you should be prepared to live with piles of little "hairs" everywhere (and I do mean everywhere because they'll spread to other rooms with amazing speed even if you skip just a day) and on all your pants (and kids' clothes too). Also, don't expect a rug that looks exactly like the picture; the actual colors are a bit more muted, but I was actually pleased by these differences (and expected them after reading other reviews). Pile height is great too, very soft on little toes and bums (we also have a 14-month old), but don't skip the rug pad. We laid our rug over hardwoods on a great rug pad (deluxe hard surface and carpet rug pad) that I found on overstock.com too.
