Rug was pretty nice, but not true to color - more green than blue, much darker than the photo. Because of it I had to send the rug back for a refund and will pay out of pocket for shipping. Was disappointed, but if you are looking for a rug that matches a deep green décor then you will like this rug.

We were so disappointed to receive this rug last night. We purchased based on the photos and description which said it was blue. As other reviewers have said, it is NOT blue at all nor does it have any shades of blue on the entire rug. Ours was not even teal. The parts of the rug that were shown as blue in the pic were various shades of forrest green. We're sending it back today but shipping is on us ($**). It seems to be a good quality rug but when online shoppers depend solely on a photo to decide on a purchase, why not update the photo and description as requested by other overstock shoppers? This is the second item that we purchased that has arrived looking completely different than on the site. I think we learned our lesson. Things often appear too good to be true on overstock for a reason! On a side note, do your homework when it comes to Overstock's email "coupons". We had several items on a wishlist while we debated which ones to order for our new house. We were very well aware of how much each was priced (and we are aware that prices do fluctuate some days). I decided to click on one of the coupons that was sent over email and magically, the price went up on the item!! Just to make sure I wasn't crazy, I opened the rug in a different browser tab. Sure enough, when I visited as a guest without logging in, the rug was around $***. When I clicked on the email coupon which took me directly to the site, the SAME RUG was now $** more!!! It's a total scam. I was excited to find good deals on Overstock but after the ugly colored rug and price scamming, I will not buy again from this site.
My boyfriend and I just bought our first house together, and neither of us had a rug that would work in the new space. After searching high and low for a rug I could use in colors I like and then decorate around it, I found this one. Other reviews are right that the colors seem slightly darker in person than in the photo. However, once I put it in my living room, I took a picture of it to send to my mom, and the colors in my photo looked lighter, too. And honestly, when I decide to be a non-vampire and open my drapes to let the sun in, the colors seem lighter like in the photo. So I'd say the color depends on photography and lighting. It's not a very high pile rug, but it feels better on my bare feet than some others that are. I guess the fibers are soft-ish? We have wooden floors and didn't bother with a rug pad. I have heavy living room furniture on it, so I don't see it going anywhere. It's got more than one shade of teal and aqua in it, so that gives you a lot to work with in coordinating the rest of your decor. I'm super excited and now I'm decorating the rest of my living room using the shades in this rug. It's going to be FABULOUS!

Good quality Disappointed in the color. Much more teal green than blue. There is no blue in this rug at all. So if you are looking for blue do not buy this you will be disappointed. Rug is good quality for the price. Soft -nice retro look to it.
I ordered this area rug for my den in which I have a piano and two desks. The size and price were right and a very good value. When the rug was unrolled, it laid out very flat, and no adjustments were needed. The coloring is more green than teal to me, but it will still work fine (and I had read the other reviewers, so was not surprised by this fact). One this I will note is that in my rug, the complete circle is in the middle and a half circle is to the left of it. The top of the rug has a smaller half circle pattern. My point is, the 8x10 carpet may not necessarily look like the display ad. In my case, I like the placement even better as it seems more balanced. I also like to do my stretching on this rug. Not especially plush, but nice nap.
The rug is probably a perfectly fine rug. It seemed to be good quality, and felt nice. My major problem is that based on the images and description, I expected teal. It's not, it's GREEN. Very very green. I was so sad and disappointed. I had to roll it back up and return it. I've purchased rugs from O.com before (in fact the rug this one was replacing was purchased here when Overstock first launched.) I wouldn't let this deter me from future purchase (in fact I've purchased two bed frames since.) My issue is just with this rug and the color.
This rug is just what I needed. I held off buying it for a while because I was concerned if the colors would match. It is a teal color with beiges and a light green. It matches perfectly. The only thing is that it can shift so we have to keep straightening it out. But overall I love it!
Other reviewers have mentioned it, and I agree. There is NO blue on this rug. What appears as peacock blue on the computer image is actually teal-evergreen color. Light blue is light green. The light green is more olive. That being said, it's a nice quality rug with a rubber backing. My couches are tan and the throw pillows have all the greens, so it ended up working in the end.
The rug was good quality and very pretty, but the colors were not at all what I was expecting. From the picture I anticipated more blue and tans. This is all teal (more green tones) and gold. I had to return it as it did not work at all with the room colors. In the right setting, it would be very pretty though!
I am very disappointed, because the edges of this rug has began to ravel I have had to trim the thread several times and the rug is becoming a little discolored. I was very impressed when I first saw it but as time has passed I am not so happy. There is very little traffic where it is located which Is my master bedroom.
