I purchased this rug from Overstock for about half the price asked on many other rug web sites. I ordered the smallest version first, to determine the colors and quality. (I kept it to use near the sliders to my balcony.) It is really gorgeous! The entire description on Overstock's web site is completely accurate. The colors are brilliant and saturated; but, if you prefer a paler version, turn the rug 180 degrees and it will "read" entirely differently. As stated in the description, this rug requires a pad. With a pad, the feel underfoot is luxurious. The pile is one-half inch deep and soft. It took a while for the creases to work their way out, but it was worth the wait. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase!
As previous reviewers wrote, I think these are usable without rug pads, however, the rug is on the thinner side, so you will feel the floor underneath if there are breaks between tiles or any molding on the floor, etc. Colors are great! Really brightened up my living room from the drab colors I had before.
If you're wondering which of the photos are accurate, they all are. From one direction the rug looks very pale, almost bleached out. From another angle, the colors are vivid and intense. I unrolled it and thought, "wait...this is so pale!" I rolled it again to turn it, then unrolled it and magically the colors looked completely different...now dark and saturated, which is the way it was meant to look. The pile is soft but not thick. The rug is pretty and nice for the price, especially for the large size. My rug was shipped with the end crushed, but I just put that end under the furniture. Definitely use a thick rug pad to make it feel more substantial.
After reading reviews I decided to order this rug and I am so glad I did! It is absolutely beautiful, the exact quality I expected for its price and the colors are vibrant and true to the picture. It looks absolutely beautiful in the living room and I hope I don't have to replace it for a very long time!
I ordered a much smaller version, 3x5 also. The quality on the smaller one is better. It is more plush and the colors are more vibrant. In the larger version the colors seem a little more washed out and it is not as plush as I had hoped. My biggest complaint is the colors are in lines in several places which can be seen if you enlarge the picture of the rug. The colors are very tropical, teal, a peachy orange , a butter yellow and a pale avacodo green. I wiwh the quality was better but the colors work well for my space so I will keep it.
just love the rug. not disappointed at all. The rug is thick and plush and colors are bright. very well made. Not cheap looking.
