This area rug was just what I expected. The rug was plush enough to use alone. I would have liked to see a standard 8x11, not sure why it is made smaller??? The blue is a different blue from my computer screen, but I am redoing the whole room so I will work with the color (which has slate tones in it) Nice rug for the price.
Very defined and different area rug. Plush and cushioned to walk on. Blue is a denim blue color- not as vibrant as my monitor showed but I am okay with that. The only thing I will say is it shows lint and sheds just as the other described. I found I need to vacuum or sweep it every other day or so to keep it looking good.
Arrived very quickly and no defects noticed. With only a small amount of time walking on it so far, it is difficult to judge the durability, but it looks and feels great. Price was excellent for the size and apparent quality. The stripes were more bold than I'd expected, measuring as much as 3 1/2" wide at some points. This was not a problem, but I just thought they would be more of a pinstripe. Description lists the thickness as 1", but it is only 1/2" ... though it still feels substantial. It would slide on the hardwood floor (I'm not using a pad underneath), but the furniture on the rug holds it in place.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? midnight blue with no trace of purple that the picture shows
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. looks good so far
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? only the thickness was off
I ordered this rug, and knowingly took a risk that did not work out well for me. One of the reviews said that the rug was purple, not blue, and the color I really need in the room is a blueish purple -- a color that is purple but that many people describe as blue. As soon as the rug arrived, I knew it was not the color I needed. It is definitely blue - a deep blue, not a navy, but more a midnight blue, as another reviewer (made after I had made my purchase) described. Very nice rug if you need a blue rug -- very nice quality. The rug is not the same color as it appears on my computer monitor, which again is a risk anyone takes. If it didn't cost so much to return it, I would. But for the price I'll live with it until I find a rug that is the precise color I need. If I didn't need this one particular color, I would be very happy with my purchase.
We love the color and design of the rug!! We have been looking for something like this for over a year. The only problem I have encountered is the lint it gives off. I have vacuumed many times and lint/fuzz is still coming off. I had to clean a spill with a soft brush, and it was loaded with lint by the time I was finished lightly scrubbing. It also shows lint and dirt a lot more because of the deep, rich color.
We have shopped for rugs at many home centers and a few of the high end oriental rugs stores and this rug is on par with anything the high end stores sell and it is a fourth of the price. The color is very deep blue and leans toward grey if put near black. Against an oak floor it appears more true blue. Ordered on Sunday and received the rug on Tuesday.
I ordered this rug for my son's first apartment and he LOVES it!! As for Overstock.com, I had put the wrong address on the order. It was returned to the company. After a lot of checking, Overstock.com sent it to my son with no charge. The people at customer service were wonderful to work with. Thank you so much for all your help.
