This is the 3rd wool rug I have tried to have in my living room. The 2 (other brands) were returned due to horrible shedding and off color defects. This rug is wool with a cotton backing. It shed a little on the first vacuum, which is normal, but has been nice after that. I turn the beater off on my vacuum when vacuuming wool rugs. The wool feel is a little stiffer on bare feet than the other rugs before, but still comfortable to walk on and very thick and plush. The example picture is fairly close to the real rug, but a little more muted than the photo. The Blue is a soft, and what I would call a country blue, and the rust color looks more muted and soft corral pink tones show up in bright light. Other colors are light blue, grey, cream, off white, 3 colors of brown, light to dark. The center floral design is a Dark Brown. Looks good on a wood floor with dark brown couch. One important note: Due to the thickness- (the edge of this rug measures just under 5/8" thick) I would not recommend it for a house with elderly folks, as it could be a trip hazard. . It is minor fault, but I still give it 5 stars for beauty, value and functionality. It is by far the best wool rug with a true blue combined with rust that I have found after searching for months and looking at thousands of rugs. Very hard to find.
This was the second rug I ordered from Overstock this month. I needed a rug for my living room which would coordinate with my blue couch and chairs but also bring in another color for contrast. The Hand Tufted Coliseum Rust Traditional Border Wool Rug seemed like the perfect choice. I ordered it on a Friday afternoon and received it from Fed Ex on Saturday morning the next day. What fantastic service!! The rug looks superb with my decor! The colors are exactly as they appeared online. It was reasonably priced and is a very high quality rug. I am very pleased.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly as depicted online
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent Quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The only thing I would suggest is that there is no black in in the rug. The darkest color is brown. You might want to correct your description.

Excellent rug for the price. No problems with shedding, other than what the vacuum sucked up the first day. The colors are muted but rich. Gorgeous rust color and beautiful blues and grays, with some toffees, off whites, and dark brown in there. Feels soft and warm underfoot. Goes well with the chocolate brown suede slipcover I bought for our couch.
It is always a gamble to buy something based on a computer digital picture as the colors may be deceitful and be different from those we have in mind. I took a chance and was rewarded. The rug fits the place beautifully and I am happy with it.
Minuscule amount of shedding, not even noticeable. The colors tones are accurate to the photos online, they are just slightly less saturated in person. The rug is thick and soft to walk on. No wrinkles and lays flat immediately. Great purchase!
Delivery was great. No trouble there. It's also a good quality rug for the price. It's plush and nice looking, but the colors are very different from the picture. I bought it specifically for the colors and the fact that it (at least the rug in the picture) would coordinate perfectly with a specific room. I noticed in other reviews that people described the colors as being "muted". I'd like to be more specific for future buyers. First, it's really hard to know what a rug looks like from a picture. I know this from when I went shopping for a quality Persian rug. The pictures I took of the rugs always looked different. The colors just don't translate. So I don't think that Overstock is trying to pull a fast one. It's just the way it is with photographs and colors. Anyway, the red is more like a mauve color. Or a dusty dark rose color. So if you're buying the rug to match with Red, this is not the rug for you. The yellow looks more like a brownish gold. But quite brown really. And the blue is more like a grayish blue. Not the sort of sky blue that is in the picture. That said, the rug is nice. All of the colors go well together, they're just not like the ones pictured. And they don't match the room like if hoped. (I couldn't fathom returning it, because it's so big.) It would look very nice with Browns, mauves, and grays/gray blues.
