I've never purchased a rug online before and was a little bit aprehensive in doing so especially with the pictures of this rug. The pictures do not do the product justice. I am extremely impressed with the quality of the rug. Very soft, plush and it gave my living room that upscale chic look I was going for. The color is more white than ivory which I was even more pleased with. Very little shedding and a whole lot prettier than the product pictures above. I would recommend purchasing a nice thick rug pad as the sheep skin is a bit thin and with hardwood floors it would add more cushion. Enjoy!

First of all, when UPS delivered this and I felt how light the rug was, I wanted to send it back right away. Then I opened a piece of the plastic and felt the rug and definitely decided to send it back because it felt rough and VERY synthetic. It sat around in my house for a couple of weeks while I looked for another rug and then I kept reading the good reviews and wondered what on earth I was missing. Anyhow, long story short we finally decided to open it all the way before returning it and once it was open and laid out in front of the bed, everything changed! This is really a gorgeous rug. Though it is synthetic of course, I knew that going in, it is SUPER SOFT to the feet and as a whole it is leaps and bounds better then in feeling just a little part of it. It will be hard to clean if it gets stained, but it vacuums up just fine with a hand help vacuum. I recommend this highly, it is plush, luxurious, and very modern looking. It transformed the look of our bedroom.

Chic and classy rug! The Overstock picture doesn't do it justice! I bought two of these rugs and put them together in my living room to make a 10 x 7'6" rug to go under all my furniture. They go together seamlessly because of the long fur. You would never know it was two rugs. I choose to do this because this is a high traffic area, and I will need to wash them a lot. Overstock says that the 5' x 7'6" rug is machine washable. I haven't tried to wash them yet, but I think they will handle it nicely. They look awesome under my Ikea living room set. My kids love them too because they are so soft. They like to lie down on them and pretend they are making snow angels. It is a fun accent to have in our living room -- it is fresh and chic. The only down side to them is that they shed somewhat, but that doesn't really bother me because I already have a dog and two cats' fur that I am always vacuuming up -- if you didn't already have pets, this rug could make you feel like you do. Perhaps the shedding will lessen over time.

This rug is pretty good for the price. It LOOKS great, but feels fake and is VERY thin. You can definitely feel the floor under it (I have it on hardwood). Probably needs some kind of rug pads underneath it to make it feel really nice. The color is not ivory, but white like the image. I was expecting this from reading reviews and wanted a white rug so I was happy with this. If you're just going for the look and don't want to spend a lot of money, then this rug is definitely worth it.

This rug looks great, but that's where the happiness with this product ended. It sheds worse than a pet. After having used it for a short time, I can't stand to have it on my floor anymore because it traps particles that won't shake out and I've realized I wasted my money. It's not practical for floor use - unless you never use it. All of my clothes and other belongings some how have gotten fibers from this shedding all over them. I really can't stand the mess this rug makes - how do the fibers from a rug get all over everything? Yup - Ive made up my mind - I'm going to get rid of it. Save your money - or spend a little more to get a rug that won't become a cleaning nightmare.
I intentionally waited to post this review because so many others had mentioned that given time this rug tended to shed a lot and cleaning was an impossibility. I have to say it has been almost a year now since I had the rug and it is still as white unknotted and beautiful as the first day I got it. Of course the caveat being I do not have kids in the home and the rug is in the living area where guests are entertained. Most feel uncomfortable placing shoes on it so it has been spared direct use. I am able to vacuum the rug once every two weeks without damaging it and as yet haven't attempted to clean with water. The rug does shed unprovoked so that does require extra dusting in the surround areas. But the wow factor when people walk in and see it is definitely worth it. I think you will be very pleased with it if you are going for a certain look.
Highly recommend, I'm selfish and wanted a white shag rug, having 3 dogs and a cat I knew this probably wasn't the best choice, but it actually cleans VERY easily, I use a Bissell about once a week and it holds up great and is still, WHITE!!! even I am shocked, I figured it would last 2 months if I was lucky, our puppy did chew a small hole in one end, but being shag No one can see it, it's very well made, trust me these dogs roll around on it, hide there bones in it, ect. And it's still going strong!!! Definitely will buy another one exactly the same, ;)
I was very hesitant to purchase due to some of the reviews and waited some time reviewing other rugs before I decided on this one. I am so glad I got this one! It is perfect. It's a clean white and impressed by the thickness and softness of the faux fabric. I did not expect a high quality due to the price compared to other similar rugs. It does she'd slightly, but nothing to really complain about. I placed it on a hard wood floor in a white and gray room. This rug not only completes the room, but it makes it! I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and receive many compliments. I have a small dog that tends to shed, but no issues with cleaning. I have a teenager, no small children. I did not place an extra padding under and the rug does not slide. I recommend this rug to anyone looking to add class and beauty at a reasonable price. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine!
I was skeptical of ordering this assuming the coloring would be off, but it is indeed a true white carpet. Not crisp white like trim molding, but not off-white or cream. The rug is soft, I would not consider it plush - you will definitely need a thick carpet pad underneath if using on wood flooring. I am also not sure yet how well it will keep clean as my dogs have already gooped it up with treats and bones; so far I have been spot cleaning immediately, but not sure that it will last long with pets. But it is a nice looking rug. Athough it feels synthetic particularly when using your hands to feel it, your feet won't know the difference. I'm overall pleased w/ the rug at this pricing. It fit the bill perfectly and looks great in my family room with dark wood floors.
although most people would like at you sideways when they see this rug, i think it looks great. I was able to keep it clean for a year, until my girlfriend started walking all over it with her shoes. Not good for high traffic areas, and it tends to slip very easily.
I was looking for a bright white soft rug to modernize our apt. living room. Rugs are very expensive and this one blew them away in comparison. After reading the reviews I went for it. It arrived promptly, sans smell, and looked great! We have it over cream carpet so it's padded underneath and it doesn't slide. It adds a great look to a boring room. The cats don't bother it. I took the other reviewers advice and spot cleaned it with a non-rollling vacuum attachment and it worked great. I haven't had any major fuzzing problems except on yoga pants. Would buy again!

I love this rug! I put it in my reading room. It's a great product for the money, my only complaint is that it's very thin! I am going to buy a thick mat to put underneath it though, that should fix the problem (putting this directly on a hardwood floor is pretty, but you can definitely still feel the hardwood floor through the rug!). I love it though, and would recommend this to anyone!

I am obsessed with this rug. I used it in my daughter's nursery and I get so many compliments on it. I didn't notice a smell when it came in and was able to use it right away. I live in Nebraska and we had a dust storm where the wind blew so hard that dust came in her room through the casing of the windows. I am so heartbroken because I walked in her room and o e end of the rug was completely brown from the dust blowing in and collecting on the rug. I didn't have much hope that I would be able to save it but I vacuumed it with a handheld vacuum and it looks like new! It does shed a little but using a vacuum without the brush on works fine and is an easy fix. This is probably my best find in Overstock to date.
This rug is thin but very soft and plush. I have carpet so it's perfect! It's located at the foot of my king size bed just under my red ottoman bench. This is the place where my 5 kids hangout and watch TV when they want to join me in my room. They actually fuss over who's going to lay on the rug.
