We couldn't be happier with this carpet. The design is elegant and truly makes the entire room look richer. It is soft, thick and plush -- a pleasure to walk on. The carpet is a lighter brown -- background is almost tan -- than that shown on the Overstock website, but that actually works better for us. It came within days direct from the US location of the name-brand Indian manufacturer. As with any new 100% hand-tufted wool carpet, the vacuum picks up a fair amount of excess fiber "fuzz" at this point, but that is normal and it is already decreasing. Great job, Overstock!
