After being heistant to order this rug (there were no previous reviews) I finally pulled the trigger. Fast shipping and it's beautiful. The stock photo on the site does not show the detail nor an accurate hue. It is a true beige (not gold or peachy). It has a chocolate border. It has a large pattern on it (which looks great in the 9x12) and the smaller patterns in-between the large markings are very faint, so it's not at all busy. I would decribe it as true beige with some brown, deep red, and sage green accents (not overwhelming). Very warm and neutral. So far no shedding, no problems. Very glad I took the risk.

I bought two sizes of this same Rug - the colors matched perfectly. I had to return the first of the larger rugs because there was some of the brown pile missing on the dark brown border. Overstock handled this without a hitch paying for all the shipping costs to take the one back and ship me a new one. The new one was fine. So when you order make sure you just cut the top of the plastic bag they ship it in and slide out the rug to make sure its ok. This way you can reuse the bag if you need to ship it back. Other than that these rugs look great in our living room and I'm hoping they wear well.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good picture of colors
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. pretty high quality - no shedding etc. Smell was kind of strong for about 5 days - that new rug smell.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
The rug itself is quite attractive. The odor that accompanied it was offensive! In fact, after a month of being down,it is just about gone. Because of the smell, cannot recommend the rug.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Rather than ivory,could be considered a lights sage green and beige
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nicely made
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Almost there!
The rug was very pretty & I was excited when we first got it. But after 3 weeks, it was still off-gassing & shedding like crazy. We packed it up & returned it. We had a similarly made wool rug before this one which did not have either problem.
I've been pretty successful with ordering from Overstock (& have ordered 2 rugs in the past) and have been very happy with the rugs.. But the image Misrepresentation of this item is borderline offensive!.. The rug is way darker than pictured.. The more appropriate description of the colors is not ivory/beige but brown/olive... I was looking for a light colored rug and ended up with a chocolate and green one instead... (& i checked the item number of the rough it is definitely the right rug-no mistake here) It definitely has that "chemical" smell to it as well.. Really upset, especially because i paid almost *** for it!!! but with it being such a pain to return (& EXPENSIVE!) i'm stuck with it...
The Negative part of this review is about how the rug was presented. The picture presented this rug as light colored, but in actuality it is very dark and I don't care for it and have to return it. I've read other reviews on different rugs and there is a common complaint that true colors are not showing up on computer screen. It's still a good quality rug, but if color matters, then the pictures don't do service. If anyone wants to see the color of this rug you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward you jpegs of pics taken both with inside and outside lighting.
I ordered a lot of rugs from Overstock over the years and will continue to do so. They have the best rugs unless you want to go hand knotted over $10,000rug. Any other place I bought rugs disappointed me and that includes Costco Online. This rug is definitely not ivory. It looks light enough from a distance with the daylight. Main color is cafe latte (lots of milk :)) in my opinion. Trim is definitely brown. I have olives in my decor it complemented my dining room excellently. Colors looks pretty much the same as I see it on my Macbook. It is soft, pile is reasonably high.
WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT THE COLORS AND THE DESIGN PATTERN WERE NOT AS WAS REPRESENTED IN THE PICTURE. THE COLORS ARE VERY MUCH DARKER THAN THOSE SHOWN; AND NOT BY A LITTLE, BY A LOT...THE PATTERN IS NOT AS CRISP AS SHOWN EITHER. THE PILE HEIGHT IS WHAT I BOUGHT IT FOR (AS WELL AS THE COLORS) BUT DID NOT WANT TO HASSLE WITH A RETURN AND IT WILL WORK OUT OK FOR WAT I AM USING IT FOR. THE SIZE IS PERFECT FOR WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR, AS WELL AS THE PRICE.
I was a little hesitant to order this rug only because colors on a computer screen appear different than they are in person but I am SO GLAD I did!! Reading all the reviews helped and they were right. The backround beige looks lighter online. It is a little more deep beige or tan but exactly what I wanted!! It is a beautiful thick quality wool rug. If you are someone looking for a tan backround with some red green and gold this one is gorgeous!! The shipping was super quick too. Thanks Overstock !
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The backround beige color is darker in person. More like a tan or dark beige.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality, thick rug
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
This was the first online rug purchase I've made-you have to take such a leap of faith with the colors! That being said, I agree with other reviews-NOT an ivory background. A very warm beige, overall very mellow, even though the red tones and the brown edge stand out. Other than the base color, it looks just like the picture! Very pleased with the quality, the pile, thickness, and consistency of design. The 8" runner is perfect for the area I needed; it is of course a bit different looking due to the pattern sizing, comes off a little darker, but it's far enough away from the area rug that it doesn't look "off". I have medium hardwood, chocolate couches and deep yellow walls with white trim, and this rug with its colors and pattern give a nice contrast and a very comfy feel to my living room. I really like this rug!!!!!! Moreover, I'm excited--I feel confident to do more large-purchase shopping. It did have a bit of that new rug smell but that went away in days, and without opening any windows or having to put it on the porch to air out. The vacuum was filled with fluff, and my boys' clothes picked up alot of lint, but I don't feel like there's a shedding problem. Yay, Overstock!!!!!
I was considering this rug for some time. I read all the reviews but was still skeptical of the actual colors and if it would fit well in our great room with the new medium brown wood floors. I took a chance and ordered it and I'm so glad I did! The overall color on the screen appeared to have a yellow or gold hue .... no the case in person. The rug is overall ivory with subtle brown, red and a tad of green in the pattern. The rug looks elegant and comfortable and feels very plush under foot. I had very little odor and no shedding. Great buy!
The photo made me think it was exactly what I was looking for. A previous rug purchase was such a match that I never considered that a rug could look so different. It appears to be fairly light on the photo. In person it is so dark, I could hardly make out or recognize the pattern. The quality is as represented. I returned the rug as it was not what I expected or wanted. Returns are very simple and Overstock is great about it.
This rug has given my living room a new look, very refreshing and welcome. I have returned to overstocks to buy throw pillows for the sofa and a wastebasket that enhance the new color scheme, which is now lighter and warmer.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Better in person.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The first rug was delivered with three holes in it. Customer service took care of this immediately, and I soon had a perfect version of the rug.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fairly accurate.
Echoing other reviewers: it is thick and plush, probably more so than I expected, and feels like good quality underfoot, especially for the price. The colors are somewhat darker than the pictures show, and the patterns are a bit more detailed than the image would suggest. But I mean that in a good way. It's a nice rug that I'll keep. Mine seems to be shedding maybe not a lot, but enough to be annoying. I've only had it for a couple of weeks, so hopefully that'll abate. Put a good vacuum to it and it should be OK.
