It's hard to find square area rugs and i looked around quite a bit before I found this one in the color I wanted. With the dark wood of the floor this almost white rug really pops. Oh yea my caat loves it too.

The shag rug is gorgeous and better than I imagined. I have the Benjamin Moore fan deck, and the color most closely matches "French White 1093" It is a nice ivory color without being too yellow. There was a slight smell initially when taken out of the plastic, which is to be expected, but it went away after a few days. It looks nice in my formal living room in front of my chocolate brown sofa. I had tried getting a shag rug before from another place, and it shed so much that I returned it. This one doesn't shed at all, which is amazing. Also, it has a nice thickness to it, not cheap looking at all. It is an excellent value, a classic look, and I'm sure I will keep it a long time.
Definitely shag; it's not super soft like flokati but it's not overly rough either...it's an individual strand type of shag rug. Great quality. NO rubber backing, so it will slip n' slide if you don't get a gripper.

This rug was packaged in plastic while wet. When I unrolled it, the smell burned my nose and my eyes. It has dark marks here and there on the carpet where it molded. I gave this rug a 2 instead of a 1 because it really is EXCELLENT quality. Gorgeous, soft, thick, supple. I bought this rug in another size, and it didn't have this smell. I'm exchanging this one in hopes that the next one I get was not packaged and will be like the first one I received. I doubt there is any amount of cleaning this rug could undergo to get rid of the rank chemical and mold smell. Buyer beware to exchange it, because I see that I'm the second person with this type of review on this size alone.
This is a beautiful, soft and thick rug. Exactly what I had hoped for, except for the horrendous chemical smell. The first day, we had to open all the windows and leave the house for the day. I assumed the smell would dissipate within a day or two. Well, after nearly 2 weeks, with the odor consuming the room, and a window open 24 hours a day - my kid's room!! - I am returning it. I naively purchased this without once thinking about the VOCs. I'm all about organic food and body products, but for some reason never gave this a thought! When researching VOCs online, it freaked me out. I will be saving my money to purchase a low-VOC or all natural rug. I was told that the smell may have been the fire retardant sprayed on it in the factory. Apparently they sometimes roll them up while still damp, and the smell is overwhelming when opened. This might explain why some reviewers state no odor, and others say there was one. Overstock was wonderful, however, and made the return very easy. I would not hesitate to buy from them again.
I am so very pleased with this rug. It is thick, well made, first rate quality and durable without having an industrial look. I use this in my family room and it gets a lot of traffic! Doesn't shed and holds it shape.....comfy to stretch out on. These days it is such a plus to actually get your moneys worth and not be disappointed in any way regarding such a purchase. I went with the ivory color and it is just as pictured. The underside of the rug does NOT have that awful rubber backing that usually peels off and is so messy; so I put a pad underneath to prevent slipping and give it a bit more padding.

We have a very small vacation cottage (970 sq ft) which we used to use as a rental so it has durable but boring taupe carpets. I had found nice taupe sofa covers but then the room looked too bland. Put this in front of the 2 sofas and under a glass coffee table and the room certainly lightened and brightened up. Would look great in a bedroom too. Much cheaper than putting in new carpet and we love it.

This rug exceeded expectations but had to give 4/5 stars because of the smell. For me it isn't a deal breaker (not as bad as some of the other reviewers described), but if you are sensitive to that something to consider. I hope using carpet odor eliminators will help. Other than that, I am extremely happy with rug (especially for the price). Looks great in my living room.
This rug is a very deep plush and very comfy to walk on. It is high quality and the color is as described. The corners went down after a few days of double sided tape on the back. The odor also went away after a coiled of days. Nice rug.
Although I had read the reviews on this product which were for the most part positive, I still did not have very high expectations . I had been searching in stores for an ivory shag rug for my living room for about a year. In each case I found the quality to be poor for the price been asked. I read almost all the reviews on this product and decided to try my luck. The product arrived in time for Christmas and was well packaged. The rug looks and feels so much richer than would be expected from a rug with this price tag. I received lots of compliments from my dinner guests and my sixteen year old daughter and her friends feel the same; they have already slept on it. Thanks to everyone who took the time to review this product and thank you Overstock for an excellent product.
