Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.
All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.
Due to the reviews about the color I struggled for a couple weeks on whether to order this rug. But I fell in love with the pattern, the size was right, and the price amazing for a wool rug. Finally placed the order and I'm so happy I did. Even though the Gombad pattern is traditional, the unique color combinations within the pattern give it a more transitional look. The main background color is a complex tan/green.. The second major color is the blue/gray. Within the pattern are various shades of green, all subdued with the exception of a small amount of citron; a red/brown (not bright); neutral tan; even a very small amount of blue/violet. Even though there are various colors, the rug is subtle and rich in tone. Beautiful with my neutral furnishings and lots of options for accent colors. Prettier in person!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color palette is difficult to see completely in the picture. If you study the detail picture you get a better idea. In person the rug has a wide variety of green hues, from an almost tan/olive green to a little blue green and even to a small amount of citron. Overall I feel it is fairly close but not exact.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems to be a good quality. Is shedding but I expected that and haven't had it very long.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
for the $$$, you cannot beat the value - granted I just unrolled it today and cannot speak to the long term durability of the product but it seems to be a very well constructed rug. as I mentioned above the color of the rug was more of a subdued blue/green than brown as the picture suggests so be slightly open to variations in color (from that of the online picture). The shipping was fantastic - I ordered this rug at 11:30 PM on Wednesday night and it got here on Friday afternoon. Overstock is on top of their ****. Great Price, Great shipping, Great product.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the site's photo is much more brown - this rug has more blue and the background is actually a subdued green
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I was very impressed with the quality upon unrolling it - thick, plush and very dense
How accurate was the on site description of the product? extremely accurate - we are very pleased with the purchase
We've been searching for a rug for out family room and thought this would work. We received the rug two days after ordering it and when we opening we were beyond pleased! The rug is a lot richer in color than it appeared on the computer. There is a lot more blue/gray in the rug than we thought, but we still love it! It's perfect for the room.

This rug arrived within a few weeks and all I can say is that it was beyond my expectations. The colors are desgines of muted blue-gray, brick-red, light-brown, seafoam-green, and light-gray, all set on a sandy-taupe background. The blue-gray centered sun design helps to break up the right-angles of any room while the softness of the color palate works to create a foundation for multiple design schemes. I chose to paint my room the same color as the rug background and use red and gray accents. I can see endless possibilites with this rug and the quality is easily 4 times what I have paid.
The only caution is to exect shedding for the first few months. I had to vacuum every other day for the first month, but it has been about 2 months and it's stopped now. The rug is very soft and thick but I would still recommend a rug pad if you are using on a wood/tile surface.
Arrived in timely manner and when I unrolled it I knew I had picked the right area rug.
Muted tones of slate blue and gold. Thick pile and sheds very little if at all.
I have it down on wood floor and it does not require the anti slip matt but I will
put one under it, to protect the floor. So happy I ordered this after reading all the reviews, felt
very confident it would be as stated, and it is!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? pefect, and muted as stated in many reviews.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I would rate this high quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? perfect
Nice rug for the money. Colors are less gold than green with teal and earth tones throughout. A nice rug, but if you have a specific palate then don't use the photo to see if it will work with your colors! Better value if you are working with a lot of neutrals and don't mind the colors being a bit of a surprise.
I'm rating this fair because while it's a higher-pile, machine made rug, it's still what one would expect for the price. Sadly, the color is so far off of gold that I'd argue the product name should be changed to, "Hand-tufted Wool Dishwater-tan Gombad Rug." I'm a pretty tolerant person, but the rug's background color just made the thing look filthy. One thing I'll say: what Overstock lacks in copywriters with good eyesight who are actually allowed to see the products prior to describing them, it more than makes up for in its return policy.
This is a very nice and well-made rug but the overall color is much duller than as it appears on my computer screen. The background color is more of a muted green/gray than gold. I wanted a brighter color for use in my kitchen but will use this one in another space instead.
The colors present in the rug are not well represented by the photo. There is light blue, burgundy and green in this rug. Luckily, these color worked for me. I would have given it an excellent rating if not for the photo.
Based on the reviews of the color issues, I was wondering if the colors are this? http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Handmade-Medallion-Light-Brown-Grey-Wool-Rug-76-x-96/6287468/product.html
If so, why wouldn't the photo be changed to match the actual product? I would have bought this rug, but hesitate due to the reviews about the colors not being represented properly in the image.a2michiganshopper on Aug 14, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello a2michiganshopper, the rug that you are referencing in your question is a completely different rug from Safavieh, with model number: HG914A-8, with a primary color of brown. Though the patterns are similar along with the pile height of .50. This rug's primary color is gold, with a model number of: SHT12GD. I hope this information is helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Rochelle Boverstockcustomercare2 on Aug 17, 2014
We bought 2 of these; they are beautiful. I do feel the color appears different than photos. When I look at it in our home, gold does not appear to be primary color. I think the difference may be looking straight down on it as in pictures and looking as you walk toward it. Having said this, we love them. They are excellent quality and blend nicely with our colors. We have already had company mistake the rugs for much more expensive ones.kmmars02 on Sep 30, 2014
How many returns do you get from the wool rugs made in India, or how many complaints? I cannot seem to find a wool rug from there that does not shed horribly from just walking on it. Are they dry rotted?chumley11 on Nov 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi, chumley11. The customer reviews on this page are a great resource to see our customer satisfaction on this product. It is common for new wool rugs to shed, particularly when they have been hand-tufted. I hope this helps. Feel free to contact us with any further questions and have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 8, 2013
I'd love to purchase this rug when it's back in stock but I'm wondering if I could get an exact measurement for the 7'6" side.....the area I want to put it is slightly smaller than that (7'5.5") and I'm wondering if it's a little smaller, because maybe it would fit : ) Thank you for your help!krystal1976 on Jan 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
