I purchased this rug - having purchased Safavieh rugs several times before (from Overstock) and having been very pleased with them. Here's why I was NOT pleased with this one: 1) it has been shedding so much more than the others and it STILL shedding even after several months. The shedding is bad enough but the "rug dust" on my dark furniture is ridiculous 2) it had a "ridge" from the carpet backing being broken down and nothing I've tried has flattened it. I've scoured the Internet for solutions and have tried them all - to no avail. 3) there are quite a few wool pieces that seem to have been chopped off - they look kind of like loose ends. This is an observation - this rug is very HEAVY. It was quite a feat for us to get it situated the way we wanted it and get the furniture back where it belonged so I was not unhappy enough to send it back. At some point (when I have some rugged male relatives here) It will probably end up in a bedroom - but it was a disappointment for the living room.
Nice rug for the price. True to other reviews it does pill and shed fuzz for a few weeks or more. If you don't have a bagless vacuum - stock up on bags ! The only disappointment was in the color description - accurate except for the fact that the red is not red - more of a rose pink which does not go in our family room, but we decided to keep the rug anyway.
We bought this, like others, on blind faith since we did not see it in person. We love it! Even my picky designer sister loved it. Our home is casually elegant and this fit in beautifully with our Great Room scheme. I believe the design and color combination would be beautiful in many room settings! Go fot it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I would not use the word "burgundy" to describe any part of this rug. This is a beautiful "neutral" rug. In person, the rug is a hint lighter than depicted in Overstock photos. However, if you love the pics you will likely love the rug.
My husband said "Perfect" and that is a huge compliment coming from him! After many failed attempt at buying from "O", we were not expecting success this time around - but were pleasantly surprised.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Just got it today - thus not sure how it will fare in the long run
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? very
I have had this rug for about three weeks now and family and friends love it as much as I do. The colors and pattern are beautiful. I was a little worried about ordering a rug online, but I am extremely pleased with this rug. Highly recommend it.
I absolutely love this rug. The colors are what I expected. It is thick and plush, delivery time was great. I received within a few days after ordering. The condition of the rug was great. I used it in a dining room and it really adds warmth and eloquence to the room.
