You have to be so careful with Overstock because they are dealing with outside manufacturers. This has happened to me more than once - placed an order and was sent something different. Although the rug is an excellent buy, it is NOT "6' square"; it is 6' x 9'. I will now have to use this somewhere else (not sending it back!), and order something else for the intended area. But, I must say the quality is superb. Just so disappointed it wasn't the right size as indicated in the advertisement. I gave it an excellent rating because the rug is very high quality.
I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of this rug. The positives include style, softness for its type, delivery time, and rug layed flat. Unfortunately either Overstock or the manufacturer of this rug dropped the ball in the quality control department. My rug had three spots of deficiencies. Two were where the weave left a penny sized gap where the backing was clearly visible. Lastly the weave was so loose at one spot where it was an inch up above the plane of the rug. A definite place where a chair leg or foot could get caught for tripping hazard. Now there were plenty of loose ends which could be easily snipped, and render the rug perfect because that is inherent in this type of rug. I also was not bothered by the backing sneaking past the edge banding because that was easily rectified with a scissor. But another thing that got past quality control at Safavieh (the manufacturer.). Hopefully Overstock will do the right thing by me in facilitating this return!
This rug is well made, much softer than I imagined with a herringbone design, it is really pretty. I love that it comes in square, looks great under my dining room table. Unfortunately it is too green in color, wish it was more of a wheat color, so I am returning it as it does not work with the colors in the room.
The rug shipped directly from Safavieh. It is a natural rug so I can understand the central colors varying a bit (mine is more green) but the border color should not so i took a star. The border pictured is almost golden/yellow but mine is a washed-out flat light-brown/tan. It measures 71x72-inches. Overall I do like the rug and its texture. I have it placed under a ebony 60-inch home office desk with a credenza just behind it. It's a nice look and the rug seems sturdy enough that the desk's weight on it shouldn't be a problem
Really great looking rug for any area of the room. I have no complaints and you should feel confident about buying this piece. I bought the square 6' and works great in my sitting room. You can match any color with it and it will work well.
