The rug got to me within three days of ordering! :) I felt like I took ages to finally decide on a rug for my living room. The good reviews for this rug were encouraging and the price was right. I ordered this rug in beige, along with a cheap no-frills rug pad, and it worked out perfectly. The rug stays in place with the minimal rug pad. I would even venture to say that you wouldn't want much more because the rug itself is SO plush. Too much underneath and I would think the rug would stand off the floor in a weird way. The first thing my son did when he saw the rug was lay down on it... so it's a winner in my book! :-)

I read reviews before purchasing this item as was very worried I was going to have a horrible time putting it together and then not be happy with the final product..If youve ever put together a certain swedish furniture company's furniture..this is a breeze..yes there are like thirteen screws..but you are just using a screw driver and my item lined up just fine..when it was put together..I saw to tiny, tiny, spots where there was a gap but it wasnt big enough to worry about..the only major negative is the placement of the hole for hanging..I figure they have to put them there to balance out the heaviness of the shelf..but this makes putting up the shelf a two person job and you do need a level..overall though..Im pretty happy with it..and my little nicknack collection looks great in it and they are off my bookcase which was the main purpose for purchasing!

I bought this rug after looking online for weeks, based on the reviews. I am so glad I did. It is gorgeous, completely transforms the room. I have it in a two story "library" that is a room we basically walk through and only use when we put our Christmas tree up. It has dark wood floors, white book shelves and a wall of windows looking out to a lake. It is the first room you see when you open the front door. I could never figure out what to do with it. After putting down this rug I brought in 2 Queen Anne wing chairs in aqua brocade that I had relegated to guest rooms. The contrast of formal and informal looks great! The only downside to this rug is there are several little hard spots that you feel if you walk on it barefoot. Other than that it is perfect and everyone who sees it comments on it and asks where I got it.

I'm using this fern on the top of a decorative ladder shelf. The lower shelves of the ladder are used as a bookcase so the fern on top adds just the right touch. It's very lifelike. arrived in fine shape, was economical and best of all, my cat isn't at all interested in it!!

I love this piece. A bay window in my living room has built in shelves, aligned with the window panes, which form shadow boxes, and is surrounded with ceiling to wall built-in book cases. The art piece fits perfectly in the top center shadow box and creates a perfect focal point for the room. Both the artful design and colors blend perfectly with the Amerilcan Indian accents in the room.

Needed a very specific size rug for mud room, with ability to stand up to dirt! I am very happy with the rug, it's a good quality and looks great. The blue is pretty, but the beige is more of a dark tan. Its an outdoor rug, dont order if yoy want something plush. It serves as a good entryway rug, too. I was worried about the creases since it arrivved tightly packed, but I misted water lightly on it, put some heavy books on it, and the crease were gone overnight. I've gotten many compliments on it.

I did quite a bit of searching for electric fireplaces before deciding on this one. It looks exactly like another model with a different name from a different company, only it was $80 less. I actually prefer this one to the other brand because the fireplace controls are hidden behind a panel at the top of the firebox where, on the other model, the controls were stuck on the outside of the firebox at the bottom, making it look less genuine. The remote feature is great and assembly was pretty straightforward. It does recommend that you get wood glue for the bookshelves, which is not included in the materials. My only disappointment is that the bookshelves don't hold as much as I hoped they would. Even though I read the dimensions prior to buying, I was sad to find that most of the books I like to display were too tall to fit well on the shelf. But, it is great for knicknacks and pictures and the bookshelves really give it character and pull the room together. Also, if you're serious about buying, I'd suggest joining Club O first so you can get a percentage off. (I waited until after).

Purchased 2 lamps for my living room. They are stunning and work well in the setting (on a glass book case against a wall- light blue formal room); although they would also work well in a bedroom. They are heavy, and the shades are very good quality. Crystal lamps can go anywhere and take on the colors of the room. The design is sharp and classic. You just can't go wrong owning a set of crystal lamps as these, since they can go in a beach house, a bedroom, or formal room. They catch light but don't weigh down the room with muddy color. They are tall and have a presence, so make sure you measure first.

This was a large rug so I was happy to see a big strong Fed Ex guy make delivery. He brought into the house for me. It was packaged extremely well. When I finally got it opened I wasn't too sure of it. I have some ver expensive silk carpets and the design lines are so clear. This seemed to be not as precise. I was also concerned about the colors. Because it weighs nearly 85 pounds (10 x 12) I couldn't really unroll it and see the whole thing. The following day, being skeptical, I reviewed the return policy first. Then I moved all the furniture out of the way and laid it down. The colors were perfect for my room. Once I set my leather couches and chair and tables in place, it was like a whole room makeover. It's perfect! The carpet is ver thick and plush. It feels good with bare feet. There is no odor. I vacuumed it once before I put the furniture down and have not noticed any extra shedding. It really has transformed the room. I have black and gold/brown/rust drapes, dark brown leather furniture, golden beige walls and dark cherry wood fireplace and book cases. It all goes together very well. It does have some blue and lighter rust, but that is just a nice highlight. Another great purchase from Overstock!

We are so happy we found this "Perfect Little Fireplace". This is a great TV stand for our vacation home and stores our movies, games and books nicely in the familyroom. The quality of this cute fireplace is even better than I expected and we no longer grab a throw when we feel a chill, we grab the fireplace remote! I found the best price at the "O"... almost 50% less than on other sites and with their free shipping you can't beat this deal!

This plant looks real and I am very happy with the purchase. The color is very vivid and pops against my black book case. Love it.

Reviews help me, so I'm writing one to help someone else. I love this rug, it's everything I wanted/needed for my sitting room/dining room/entry way. I bought this in 8 x 10 and 5 x 7. The corners stand up a little after unrolling, so I put books on them for a few days to alleviate that problem. The rug is very thick and plush. It's so nice that I just ordered one for my bathroom. I have a very busy looking marble tile that this rug helps to tone down. Even if we change out our tile some year, I will still keep these rugs down on them. I had actually ordered these in cream a while back, and while I love the color and everything about them in cream, I underestimated how fast that color would look dirty/dingy in our high traffic areas. Yes, we can shampoo them, but then that means not walking on them for several hours and the dinginess just reappears a few weeks later. Brown is much easier to deal with so I don't have to be so adamant about no shoes on the carpet, etc. Love these and the price is great!

Really added a nice touch to my book case. The colors were just like the picture.

I purchased the black 5 x 8 rug for the open floor space in my bedroom. I have two black nightstands (on either end of the bed) and a black TV stand so with the black area rug, my room matches wonderfully. As you know, the rug is delivered rolled up tighly in a box, so the ends of the rug were really curled up for the first 2 weeks. I put heavy books on the sides of the rug to flatten it out and it seams like they are finally flattening out now (1 month). I like how shaggy the rug is too.

My only issue is that the stand itself is uneven, making the lamp tilt ever so slightly...had to put a small paperback book underneath one side to even it out. Now the lamp doesn't look crooked! Colors are nice and it looks great (when not tilting!) in my living room!

I bought this for my living room. In the picture it appears and off-white; it isn't. Some of the other furniture in the room is off-white and this is much yellower. I should have ordered the brown. I can paint this however. The bookcases went together very easily. One person can handle the bookcases with no problems. Pay very close attention to the pictures since it is very easy to put things together incorrectly and have to redo them. My problems began while putting together the fireplace. About figure 5 when you have to put the base for the firebox in is when I ran into trouble. I have no one to help me and you need four hands to do this. Fiber board does not hold screws like wood does and the sides pulled away and the whole thing collapsed. I put the sides back up and let it dry. Then I took the dowels off the firebox shelf and set it in. I put screws in from the outside of the fireplace and it went together beautifully. The screws don't show when the bookcases are in place. The mantel and the other pieces went on easily. I've had compliments on this fireplace and it does add to the character of the living room. I did not give this 5 stars because of the difficulty putting the fireplace together and the use of fiberboard. I feel more wood could have been used for the price.

I was hesitant to buy the fireplace because of the price. But I am so glad I did! I absolutely love this fireplace. It is great quality, looks very expensive. Downside was that it took a while to put together, but in the end it was worth it, because it does not look like something you can put together yourself. Only other complaint was that it said the shelves on the bookcase are adjustable, and they are not.

These little vases are the perfect touch for creating interesting and colorful bookshelf displays. Take your purposeful bookshelves up a notch by creating cute vignettes. Grab a couple of books or hardcover photo albums, combine them with a colorful vase and an interestingly shaped photo frame and a small personal item and voila... Beautiful shelves that will become a nice focal point of your room. Scatter these vignettes from side to middle to side on alternating shelves. These vases are the perfect size to use on the very popular ladder type shelves since they do not weigh much and are small enough to actually fit! I Had to take a little off the rating since the antiquing was done too rough and in too large and well defined pieces for my taste.

The shelves are great accent shelves, we placed two sets on each side of our flat screen tv and it loods great, easy to put up and good length and width to dsplay, candles, books, etc.
It's important to realize that your book shelves and cases can be as chic and trendy as your other furniture. Your shelves can do more than just hold books. Adding a personal touch to your home's book shelves will make them a valuable and pleasant addition to any room. You don't have to add much to your book cases to make them stand out. Below is a list of suggestions on how to decorate book shelves.
Despite the name, bookshelves are about more than just shelving books. Bookshelves make versatile solutions as free-standing dry food pantries, open dressers or displays dedicated to your knick-knacks and tchochkes. They quickly convert into china cabinets, media organizers or shoe storage. Whatever the case, the right bookcase goes miles toward making your home into the haven it should be.
No house is complete without adequate shelving. There is no shortage of things to stock your shelves. But before you pack your shelving full of whatever junk you have laying around, why not use your shelving strategically to enhance your room decor? Packing shelving full of old magazines and ratty books might get them off the floor, but it sure does seem a waste of beautiful shelves. Whether you have wood shelves, wire shelving, wall mounted shelves, metal shelvingor bathroom shelves, here are some helpful tips on how to stock any shelving units with style.
Whether it's a simple two-shelf bookcase or a floor-to-ceiling unit, a bookshelf can provide a very strong accent to home decoration. Unlike a complete room makeover or furniture rearrangement, changing and redecorating a bookshelf can be done quickly, and it can be done using your existing home decor. With a few simple changes, your bookcase can become the focal point of your room. Here are some tips on styling a bookshelf.
It's not unusual for bookshelves to incorporate multiple materials for different features. If you haven't decided on wood, wood products, metal or glass bookshelves, look at their relative strengths and weaknesses. Look below to learn the best bookshelf materials. Wood: "Solid wood" is a common term for furniture made from lumber planks. Beware of making assumptions based on labels like "hardwood" and "softwood." Hardwoods are derived from deciduous trees and softwoods from coniferous trees; the terms don't connote their relative strengths. Balsa is a hardwood even though it is very soft, just as Douglas fir is a softwood even though it is very hard. They all make excellent, classic stock material for bookcases. Generally, harder woods are the heavier and more resistant to scratches. Still, softer woods, if treated correctly, will keep just as well as harder woods. Plywood: Made by stacking thin sheets -- "plies" -- of lumber and gluing them under pressure, plywood features grains that alternate direction for strength. Several grades are available, of differing cost. Top and bottom plies can be high-quality woods to create the appearance of fine woods, but edge veneer or molding is needed to complete the illusion. Particleboard: Wood chips glued together carry a much lower price tag than solid wood, and particleboard is denser and more uniform. It's a great choice when cost is the primary consideration. Bookshelves crafted from veneered composite boards can look and feel as good as real wood. MDF: Wood fibers, tiny chips and sawdust collected and glued into sheets form medium-density fiberboard (MDF). Low-cost MDF makes an excellent base for veneers; plus, its strength is consistent and it shapes well. Metal: There's a reason most library bookshelves are made from metal: Metal bookcases are resistant to moisture and fungus, their low-friction shelves are easier on books' bindings and metal's strength-to-weight ratio can't be beat. Their cost usually comes in below any other material. Glass: Glass bookshelves weigh more than other types, but if you plan on assembling your bookshelves only once, the style points can be well worth it. Tempered glass shelves (in wood or metal uprights, called "standards") give your home an unbeatable contemporary feel, and glass bookcases' smooth, transparent surfaces add brilliant levity to a decorating piece that might otherwise be notably opaque and heavy.

Many people give their decorative accessories a place to shine by putting them on niches, cupboards, and shelves. However, they may overlook one of the ideal spots for showcasing their favorite decorative accessories: the top of a bookshelf. Whether it's a tall corner shelf or a lower modular piece, the surface on top of a bookshelf offers a flat area to arrange art, vases, framed photos, baskets, statues, and sculptures.

A bookcase is a great place to store, organize and display books as well as other personal items, like pictures, knickknacks and souvenirs. Bookshelves are pieces of functional, decorative furniture, but you may have some questions about which bookcases are right for your home. Look below to find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about bookcases.
No matter what you have to display or store, shelves are a valuable part of just about any room in your home. Although they are most popular as office furnishings, shelves can be used throughout your home for a number of different things.

Depending on what type of material you prefer, you can find shelving to match just about any decor imaginable. If you are considering shelves, here are some great ideas on how you can share shelves with the rest of your house.
Styling a bookcase can go beyond alphabetizing your books. After all, it's your home and not a public library. Use your books as part of the decor that expresses your style. The colorful spines, typography, and even the words in the titles can help set the mood of the room. And when you artfully arrange your bookshelves with decorative accessories, you can create a vignette that's versatile, functional, and beautiful.
