I was a bit hesitant to purchase this rug because I was afraid it would be too bright. It's for my son's room who is now a teenager and past wanting "Superman" blue everywhere. This is a deep, rich cobalt. Looks like very good quality, though because of the weave I expect it to shed for a while. For the price, it's an outstanding value. For what it's worth, I have purchased several rugs on Overstock, and have been very happy for the most part. One thing I have noticed is that the photos online tend to represent the shades as brighter in tone than the actual product. I purchased another rug for my other son's room that was striped, but when I got it, it was too dark for the room, as beautiful as it was.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It was a bit richer than the photo...less "Superman" cobalt than the photo.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not sure how it will wear, but it looks gorgeous. It appears to be fairly tightly woven, but I expect it will shed for a while.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate.
Very disappointed with this rug. It's labeled cobalt and the combination of that label with the darkness of the color pictured on the site convinced me to buy it. It is, however, merely medium blue. No richness to the color, which is significantly lighter than pictured.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Poorly. Rug on site looked dark and richly colored. The one I recieved is just plain medium blue.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It just arrived, but it looks like a nice rug.
I bought this rug for my son's big-boy room and I'm pleased with the purchase. There was some shedding in the beginning but 4 vacuums later and it appears to have stopped. The rug is soft, plush underfoot and a very nice blue (think Superman-blue). I'd recommend it.

I read some reviews that said the color was quite rich and some that said it was lighter than expected. I was hoping it would have been a deeper, more sapphire blue. But, it does go very well with the decor in my living room and is soft underfoot.
I was impressed how quickly the rug arrived after ordering it. The rug has been down for about 3 months. There is a little linear texture that doesn't show up much in the picture. I happened to like that though, as it added a little more texture than expected. I had seen in other reviews that the rug sheds a bit at first- that wool rugs just do that. We've had the rug down for about 3 months and it is still shedding. It fills the vacuum cannister everytime I vacuum and needs to be vacuumed every few days. I had expcted it to shed, but I had hoped it would have stopped by now. However, the rug still looks very nice after being vacuumed a lot. Also, since it is a solid rug, it shows every little light piece of anything that gets on the rug. It's not very forgiving in that aspect. Overall, I rated the product as good because it is an attractive rug and seems to be of a decent quality rug. I would just want other buyers to be very aware that it will shed for a while and will show any light colored debris that falls on it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The rug was pretty close to the color shown. Maybe a bit brighter.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is pretty good, but it still sheds a lot
I live in a loft apartment that some color and space definition. This rug perfectly fits under my 6 ft. dining room table with enough coverage on either side to pull out the chairs without scraping the floor. It adds a very nice, rich cobalt color to an otherwise monochrome space. The only issue I have with it is that it sheds like crazy, but I imagine that after a few more vaccuums it will be ok. It's a great price for a quality product. I recommend it.
