This rug is truly beautiful to look at but do not walk on it. Within a few weeks the rug started falling apart. The edges started unravelling and was shedding like crazing. So sorry we had to send it back but it was not meant to be walked on.
Never wrote a review before but this rug warrants it. I shopped a lot and brought many rugs home that did not pass muster, and being large rugs, this was a pain in the derriere. I never thought I could buy rugs on-line because wanted to feel quality. There were several favorable reviews and the cost was great so I gambled and it turned out fantastic. (The price was so good that I thought it would be worth it if I had to pay return shipping but that is not an issue.) Hand-hooked and real wood at a great price. Very pleased. There was an odor upon opening- WOOL- wool smells...like wool! The smell is no longer noticeable after airing just a day or so, so no worries there. The red is more brick than tomato but it works for us, even though I have some other deeper reds going on in there. I am leaning toward buying a runner and small one for entry way but don't want to be too matchy-matchy.... Oh yeah, delivery was quick and painless.

We've been searching for a living room rug for a very long time. After a few unfortunate orders and returns of rugs from Overstock.com (customer service was excellent!), we decided to give Overstock.com one last chance. This rug arrived in only 2 days. It was exactly what we were looking for. The colors are true to the picture and they are beautiful. It is a well made rug. This rug is not as soft as some other wool rugs that we own. However, that was not a concern for us. The only thing that was a bit bothersome was that a rug had a very strong factory smell once taken out of the plastic wrap. However, after airing the room for a few hours, the smell disappeared. Overall, we are very pleased with this purchase and will continue shopping at Overstock.com.
