I work in design, so I can have some pretty high expectations. I expected this rug to match the colors I saw on the screen, The rug that arrived at my house didn't, as it is a very pale silver/gray and there isn't much variation between the lights & darks. (There were no reviews on the product prior to my buying it.) This was for my own home, and the room is very light with windows all around - this rug disappears against my light travertine floors. I've had it a number of months now, and every time I see it I wish it had some "umph!" The real thing is pretty bland in a well-lit room. It may as well be solid pale gray. A plus: I put two layers of padding underneath it, so guests always think the rug is soft - (good trick)
The picture does not do justice to this fantastic work of art. This was our third purchase from Overstock and we couldn't be more pleased. Actual size was 7'11.5 x 9'10". I am sooo glad I read all the reviews on this one. It is exactly as one of the reviewers said, more gray than silver, with hints of taupe, which is exactly what we wanted. We needed a non-busy but not boring rug on freshly refinished 1928 oak hardwood floors that would not conflict with an Art Deco silver gray triangle with swirls geometric wallpaper design. I was hesitant that the stones would be too pronounced and obnoxious, but they are not. Instead they are subtle and variant in shades of grays and taupe in a graduating and receding manner. Darkest in the center and some ivory at ends. Excellent quality, plush, no shedding, no odor, great packaging and speedy delivery.
Having had other previous positive experiences with purchases from Overstock, I took a chance that this rug would match the two new sofas I have purchased from XXXXXXXX. When this rug was rolled out and compared with my sofa fabric sample, the color match was absolutely perfect. I could not be more pleased with this purchase. The gradiation of color from end to end could be improved upon a little, but, overall, it's very good. Love it Love it Love it!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color of the rug matched the site almost exactly.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. At this price, the quality is superb. Edges finished nicely, pile even, color gradiation good. The rug was wrapped very well for shipping.
Getting my dining room ready for the holidays and I spent weeks looking for the right rug. I read every review of this rug that I could find, both on Overstock and on competitor sites. Like many, this was my first purchase of a rug online and I was apprehensive. Well, my apprehension is now long gone. This rug is exactly what I was looking for and is gorgeous in my dining room. The picture makes the rug look like it has a bit of a sheen or shimmer. It doesn't. The look is very tonal and subdued. The gray is best described as a "greige" as it is very warm and is a perfect compliment to my walls (Sherwin Williams Collonade Gray). The lighter tones along the edge are ivory, but doesn't negatively contrast my white trim.
I bought this rug for my dining room. it sits on a dark hardwood floor so the light color is a beautiful contrast. It is a bit more gray than silver and I was at first surprised by the contrast in colors at the ends. The picture online appears to have shimmer but those light areas are more ivory than shimmery silver. I do love the variation in shades as you move to the middle of the rug. I've had it only a few days at this point, but so far so good.
The actual rug doesn't look exactly like the image on the website. It's not far off; but the difference is significant. On the website, the light colors in the rug look luminous; in reality, the rug is much more plain and homogenous. Simply put: it's a bit dull. The second problem is that it continues to shed and is now looking a bit like an old pilled sweater. So why 3 stars? For the price, it's decent. It serves its purpose. But I don't expect it to last that long before looking too worn, at which point I will replace it with a more expensive--meaning presumably better quality--option.
The rug is beautiful. Thick, very nice quality, looks well made and expensive. The colors are more taupe then grey. The only minus is it sheds a lot! I have had it for three month and have to empty my vacuum cleaner canister because it's nearly full just after vacuuming this rug only.
This is a great quality thicker rug. Yes it sheds at first, as with all wool rugs. The only disappointed thing is that the colors aren't bright gray metallic but a dull gray. It's much lighter than expected. We love it for my main great room and the texture design is very cool and modern. No one can come close to overstock's price. We saved over $XXX shopping through overstock.
For months I looked for the perfect rug for my new living room. I first found this rug on Bed Bath & Beyond and thought I could use a 20% off coupon. Found that the coupon was only good in store. I wasn't about to give up on finding this rug. I searched on Google and found that Overstock was selling it too. Best part, it was $100 cheaper! I ordered it with fingers crossed that it would be as lovely in person as it was online. Happy to report...it's stunning! Pattern is subtle enough to complement many color schemes. I couldn't have found a better match for my living room! Quality is amazing and I can't believe the price! I highly recommend this rug. The color is neutral enough to match almost any decor.
I bought this rug for the living room. Ordered on 4/20 and had in on 4/24. Good secure packaging. Opened it, vacuumed and laid it down in the living room. The size (8x10') is accurate. I have been looking for a gray rug since my living room color scheme is black, white, and gray. This rug is perfect for the room. The "stones" motif is nice - adds a little something to the rug but is not overwhelming. The stones themselves are shaded: the ones in the middle are darker gray and they gradually become lighter as you look to either edge of the rug, with the ones at the very end being almost pure white. This gives a nice visual of shading. The rug is quite thick (here it says 0.75 inches - but I did not measure). It laid flat right away. Since I have a heavy coffee table on top, I did not put any non-skid backing. There were a few errant fibers which I trimmed with a scissors. I wish this site had better/more pictures of the rug. Overall, I think this rug is great for the price. The design is very contemporary. And the color is neutral enough to go with most decor. But the shading and the stones add some interest to the rug so it is not boring or dull. I recommend it!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very close
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems like good quality; a little shedding
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not very. This is not 100% wool as it says on this site - the packing said 80% wool and 20% cotton
The rug I purchased is a hand-tufted wool rug of excellent quality. I am very pleased with it! The color matched perfectly to what I expected when I ordered it. The description of the product was very accurate, and I was happy to receive exactly what I expected.
