This rug is so beautiful. The colors are exactly as pictured on my screen: denim blue, chocolate brown, oatmeal, soft aqua, khaki. I love the traditional pattern paired with the updated, modern color scheme. The blue base color has a variegated, watercolor look that is not as prominent in the picture but actually quite lovely. After two months, the rug is still shedding quite a bit and needs to be vacuumed around three times a week to keep the kids' clothes from being covered with tiny wool fibers. Hopefully this subsides, but I am thrilled with the look and feel of the rug. (I have the Durable Carpet Pad under it, cut to size from 8x11). I will also say I can feel small knots in the rug in a few places, which can be a surprise when walking along but have not noticed any unravelling or problems otherwise. Overall, due to its beauty, large size, and reasonable price I consider this rug a great purchase!

Thank you to all of you who gave positive reviews to this rug. It gave me the confidence to order and I couldn't be happier. I had seen this rug advertised in another catalog and the picture was very green. I was a little worried about the "blue" in the description. I don't have a lot of blue in my house. But we were redoing the entire room, so I took a chance. Please note that the blue is really a slate grey. We have a bluestone hearth on our fireplace and I would say the stone is actually slightly bluer than the rug. The rug Incorporates tans, browns, greys, and light sage greens. Will match well with many different fabric and wood colors. It is very thick and soft and laid completely flat as soon as it was put down. I have had no noticeable shedding or odor. Love, love, love it!
Rug has nice pile, the blues are muted and look great with the taupes in the rug. Blue oriental type rugs are hard to find, and this one is tasteful and expensive looking. Great rug for the money.

I ordered this rug after looking exhaustively for wool, Persian-type rugs in shades of blue, which are nearly impossible to find. I had read all the reviews for this item and figured if it arrived and it looked more gray than blue, that would be okay too. So....I just rolled it out yesterday. While it is an absolutely lovely rug, and if you're looking for muted tones in blues it's a winner, it is not perfect. Let's start with the pattern. The photo shown (with 3 medallions up the center) is not what is on the large-size rug. That's the photo of the smaller version of this rug (which I also purchased). The actual large one has 3 rows of 3 medallions. The overall idea is the same, just thought I would mention. As for the color, it is definitely blue, but with gray undertones. The palette is much softer than the online photo indicates. The photo makes the colors look more saturated than they are IRL, it looks almost navy online. But it is not. I was hoping to be able to upload my own photos but looks like I can't. The most important thing to know about the color is that the large areas of blue are striated. That means they are not solid, there are variations in the color. Almost an aged or abrash look. Like denim. This doesn't bother me, but it might bother some people. This rug sheds like crazy. I vacuumed it SEVEN (yes, 7) times and it filled the canister of my vacuum to overflowing. After that, I got mad and gave up. I'm hoping that subsides with time, but I was disappointed in so much shedding. I've bought many large wool rugs from several places and none has shed like this one. I also noticed that I had more pulls in the rug than what I expected for the price. I snipped them off, but I wasn't happy to see them, and I'm hoping I don't continue to see pulls after every vacuum.
I really love this rug. It is very well made. I have it in a high traffic area. It does shed but then again I am not a constant vacuumer. I don;t notice the shedding. I would recommend this rug to anyone. THe amazing thing about this order...i ordered it on a Monday at 3:00PM and it arrived on Wednesday .

I was so worried about purchasing a rug online and risk having to pay to ship it back. I was so excited when we unrolled this, it is more beautiful in person than online. The colors are gorgeous, the design is not overpowering and this rug looks like it is worth triple the price we paid. We are thrilled with the quality, the speed at which it was shipped (not to mention the low, low cost to ship a 76 lb item). We have not had any shedding issues either.
The rug arrived well-packaged and in perfect condition. I made sure to vacuum it 3 or 4 times before placing it under my dining room table. I've had no trouble with shedding in this low traffic area of my house. I have received several compliments on the rug already.

This rug is listed as being blue, but I would say it is more of a light gray or slate blue in color. The color is perfect for us because our walls are painted a similar gray. It feels nice and thick, but I was hoping that it would be softer to the touch. I purchased a non-slip pad for underneath and that definitely gives the rug some cushioning and bounce. The pad is also necessary to stop the rug from sliding. We are having some shedding issues, but not too bad. I do vacuum 2-3 times a week to keep the shedding to a minimum. My family would have preferred a more colorful rug, but this color goes well in our room. All in all, we are happy with the quality and the warmth it supplies.
Absolutely love this rug! It looks like something you would easily spend two or three times the price somewhere else. The rug is a perfect slate/gray/blue color. Also, keep in mind overstock has the photos swicthed, the pattern shown on this photo is actually the 5x8 pattern. And the pattern in the photo shown for the 5x8 on overstock is what you can expect when ordering the 8x10 rug. Absolutely love this rug. Shipped in two days, and it was carefully wrapped so that there was no damage during delivery. A+ on this one, O.co!
I ordered this rug for my formal dining room. On the computer it looked navy blue, but in person it is a blue/green blend, that looks like a denim. I am returning because the denim reminds me of a western-look, and I wanted a more traditional oriental-style rug. If that color works for you, the rug is a great value for the price.
Nervous about ordering as it was hard to tell the colors. Various review opinions. This rug is absolutely beautiful! The web does not show the true colors. Blue grey (colonial blue) with tan leaves, dusty green (slightly agua) accents in middle. More blue and tan than other colors. Thick, well made. Laid down immediately. No creases. Love, love this rug. Have not experienced any shedding as stated by a few reviews.
We needed a thicker,brighter rug to cover our dark and cold bamboo floor-the rug we had was a typical poly rug that had no thickness. This Rug was exactly what i wanted;the color is perfect,tonal light blues,cream and beige.I actually saw a rug in a major home decor catalog today that was almost a twin to this one-and twice the cost PLUS extra for shipping. We have this is our family room-it is constantly walked on by 2 adults and 3 large dogs-it still looks perfect. Being Wool-i have not had an issue with any major shedding;just light fluff when vaccumed. The rug is thick and will not require a rug pad if your furniture is going to be edging it.it's pretty heavy-so i doubt it will scootch around much. The rug is a great deal for the size,quality and softness.I really shopped around and this is really a great buy.

the colors and pattern are really lovely, but the shedding is unbelievable. We've had the rug several months now & I thought the shedding would die down eventually but it has actually gotten worse. Our entire apartment - and the dog and the cat and our clothes - is covered in blue fuzz. We vacuum 3x a week and it completely fills the vacuum bag every time. The vacuum finally burned out today, I am done with this rug.
This rug is beautiful and I'm very satisfied with how it brightens up my living room. However, I do have to vacuum every day due to all of the wool fibers. It sheds all over my hardwood floors and it covers my childrens clothes if they sit down on it. I have owned this for three months now and I am still losing the wool battle. For the most part though, I do love it, it's worth the hassle.
