I"m not kidding when I say I have been diligently searching for a rug for 2 years! I had decided in the end that I wanted to go with a shag for our living room but everywhere I looked (and I looked EVERYwhere!) if they were good quality, they were $XXX.XX dollars, if the were affordable, they were crap. I finally found this rug online and felt it was going to be too good to be true. I started at the screen for an hour trying to decide between mushroom, ivory, beige, or taupe. I clicked on taupe and couldn't be more pleased! It's a very gray shaded medium brown color. Simply stunning in my rustic home where I use lots of natural colors that are more on the cool end of the color spectrum. This rug is very plush, thick, and soft. My dog has made it his new bed (much to my demise). I would recommend this to anyone! I can't tell you how happy I am. Also I did not notice any odor from the rug after rolling it out. Had friends over the night after we got it and they didn't notice a smell either. I'm thinking of buying another one in a different color for our loft. Simply wonderful and Affordable!
I ordered this rug after considering the same rug in mushroom, beige, and gray. Taupe is really what I wanted. I was aware that some reviewers thought the rug was darker than on screen and allowed for that possibility. However, my rug looks exactly as it appeared on my monitor. No surprises at all except how much I enjoy walking on it barefoot! Would highly recommend.

I am VERY pleased with these rugs. Colors are identical to the pics except there are light and dark yarns twisted together that give it a rich look instead of boring solid. I had ordered the 6x9 in beige (cream) for my formal living room and absolutely loved it, and now have the runner and another 6x9 in "taupe" for the den. These are very soft, thick, fluffy, luxurious area rugs. I did a LOT of shopping, and these were the nicest quality and best deal out there. Delivery of each item has been within a few days. The beige has two different colors (lt cream and dark cream mixed), so I called to see if the taupe was the same. I was told it was, so I ordered anxiously. The two colors mixed give it a rich, expensive look. The taupe is a mix of light and dark taupe blended together in the twisted yarns. Together it is a dark taupe, almost brown. If you want light, go with the beige instead which is a creamy off-white. These rugs are extremely thick (1-1/2") but vacuum very easily with my Dyson. Do not seem to shed. I cannot keep my bare feet out of them! My dogs love them. I bought some 1/4" carpet padding (from local hardware store) for underneath to hold them in place to the hardwood floors and to give a little extra cushion. Wow... I can't say enough about how nice these rugs are! The beige is classy in my formal living room, and the taupe is fun and shaggy in my den. Other reviewers said these have a smell and roll at the edges. Hellooo... they've been rolled up and have that new smell! Nothing a day unrolled on the floor won't cure. The smell goes away quickly (chemical smell from the spill-proofing I would assume), and the edges lay flat quickly after unrolling the rugs (roll them in the opposite direction for a minute - duh!) THESE ARE NICE!
This rug is definitely shag! It is very soft and looks great in the room. The rug sits pretty high off the floor because of how long the shag is, so my Rooma can't go on top of it, but it is now my dog's favorite place in the house to sleep. :) Shows how nice it is.
I have been looking for a rug for our new family room-which is located in our finished basement. The floors are a grey-taupe colored laminate and I wanted to add a rug to warm the area up a bit. I ordered the 8 x 10 in Taupe and I must say the rug has exceeded my expectations! It is the perfect color, incredibly plush (especially in bare feet), and an overall great value for the money. I would highly recommend this product.
We love this rug. It was purchased to go in the nursery for our new baby over the cork floors we had put in. We love the cork floors...but when you're going to be playing on the floor all the time with a little one you want something a little softer. This rug is very plush and comfortable to lay on...we don't need any additional padding under it to be comfortable. The color is beautiful...but I cannot really comment on the exact shade and whether it is taupe...I'm not that picky when it comes to colors...it's sort of a medium brown (not dark and not light) to me and looks just like the picture on overstock on my computer. I highly recommend this rug...great value.
Got this for my bedroom because the floor was so cold. The price was great. The color not exactly as it showed on my computer but maybe better. Blends in well with burgundy drapes with some of the laminate flooring showing I'm pleased. Did not want to tear up the flooring that I had laid down in the summer & replace with carpet so this was the solution I came up with & it worked.
