This is a very nice rug for the price. It is just thick enough for my needs (an area very visible from my foyer) but it is not too thin either. I vacuumed it a lot when I first got it...it sheds a lot! But, after several months now, normal vacuuming is all it needs. The black is not a deep, deep black, but it is black, no question. The thread pattern creates striations across the rug which makes it a lighter shade of black. My foyer rug is black background with silk embroidered roses throughout, and this rug looks fantastic with it. Again, this rug is black, NOT gray, NOT even grayish. It would look great with gray, however. Hope this helps anyone who needs clarification on the color.
My wife and I finally lucked out when we stumbled upon this rug. It is 100% wool and handmade in India from Safavieh. We couldn't be happier. We have a 6 month old son who is just starting to crawl, and the moment that we put him on the rug, he began to crawl all over it. He loves it and so do we. It feels great and is not "thin" as one reviewer claimed. It is a simple style yet elegant and looks great. The color looks just like it does in the picture. It's awesome. If you are searching for a quality rug at an affordable price, then I think you should consider this one. It's hard to shop for these types of items online. But we feel satisfied after our purchase and do not have an iota of buyer's remorse.
This purchase is the 3'x5' rug. I purchased the runner and the 3x5, but they were out. The runner looked a dark charcoal next to the black in my living room area rug. I knew the runner would look great with the 3x5 at the door and stairs just before you step onto the runner. I found the 3x5 on other sites, but the price was a bit too much, so I kept searching Overstock until they got more. Now the runner and 3x5 looks nice. It feels soft under my bare feet. I'm pleased with the look. Now, if I can only get the runner to stop shedding! I have not had the shedding with the 3x5. I'm glad O got more in.
This is a nice rug ----- I purchased black. When you first get it wil will shed. I wish I would have gotten red. The black shows every little crumb dropped on it. I have it under my dining table. Overall the quality of the rug nice. I would buy it again but in a different color.
This is a wonderful rug, perfect size under a cocktail table or anywhere else and great color to match any decor.. I only wish I could have unrolled it sooner as the edges peeled up a bit and I was not at home to open it and get it unwrapped as soon as it arrived, I put some heavy objects on each of the four end corners and it seems to be working
Great area rug - I bought this for a small bedroom that is now my office - the room has hardwood and I did not want to cover the entire floor - this rug is centered in the room and looks fabulous with the dark cherry wood. It's soft and I love the color - it's sort of a dark charcoal black - color looks exactly as shown. It is easy to vacuum and feels good under your feet. Beyond happy with this area rug, Quality is superb!
