  • classic look

    very nice rug. I bought it in 12 x 15 which is hard to find without costing you $$$$$. It's hard to tell from pic but the border is gray which looks nice. the rug has tan, green, gray, ivory and the red give it a little pop of color. love it.

  • Love this carpet

    I love this carpet. I was afraid to buy a rug without seeing it first, but I'm so glad I took the chance and got it. It feels very soft and comfortable and is perfect for our family room. One word of caution: we also bought a 12x15 pad from overstock to go under the carpet, and the pad is several inches larger than the carpet. I haven't measured, so I don't know if the carpet runs slightly small or the pad is slightly big, but it is a bit of a bummer to have to cut the pad. But that is my only caution: the carpet is great!

  • Good price, but still sheds excessively after 1yr

    We have had this rug for over 1 year now. Vacuum the rug frequently and it sheds excessively onto our clothes, onto the floors, and each time we vacuum the rug we fill the Dyson canister with fibers. Even after a year, the shedding is still excessive. We have other high quality wool rugs, both tufted and knotted. Other tufted rugs typically shed for 3-6 months and then get gradually better. After a year, it should only shred trace amounts of fibers. This rug is tufted and, my opinion, they used an inferior adhesive that will release fibers forever throughout the life of the rug. Unfortunately, the warrantee/return period is shorter than the shedding period for even a high quality we had "faith" in Overstock that this rug would eventually slow down on the shedding. It still sheds Heavily, and we can no longer return it. We will likely throw it away or sell it at a garage sale this spring, and it's unlikely we will order the replacement from Overstock. I can't trust the quality.

  • 12x15 Tan/Ivory rug

    The rug is great! I went to a rug store's 80% off sale and was told by the sales person that there was no way to get a wool rug this size for less than $10,000. I wish I could take him a photo of this rug. It is wool, and great quality. There is more blue/gray than indicated in the photo and reviews, but it is soft enough to give a warm/cool balance in the room. This is our second rug purchase on overstock, and I won't be going to another store. There is some initial shedding.

  • Delightfully surprised

    We got this on faith, as another rug we'd ordered last year had been really nice. It was a big purchase given that it was sight unseen, but we are all really pleased with it. It's BEAUTIFUL and very classy, rich, deep colors and wonderful feel. It's pulled our living room together in the best way!

  • Will the creases come out?

    The colors on this rug are muted, which is what we wanted. The red pops just enough to give it a bit of visual interest. The *problem* was that it was shipped folded, and maybe *stored* folded before shipping, so there are lumps in the middle, kind of like the rug is pushed up where the rug was folded. They're not noticeable from farther away, but easily noticeable when standing on the rug - the bubbled areas rest about 1" off the ground. I don't know whether it will come out eventually. I think not, but don't have the energy to roll it back up and try to ship it back. I'm sure they would take it back but like I said, too much effort and I'd guess it's an issue with all of the rugs this size (12 x 15). For the price I probably should send it back though! Due to the large size, it took about 3 weeks to arrive due to a weight issue between UPS and Overstock. I had the tracking number though so could keep an eye on the progress.

  • Very happy with new purchase

    We bought this rug as our first purchase. It arrived yesterday in less than a week. Very professionally packaged and there was no shipping damage. We ordered 12x18 for our Living Room so it was very heavy (200 lbs) to carry into the house from where the delivery guy left it on our front porch. But then we had no problem opening and unrolling it. We read in other reviews that the colors are slightly off so we took a chance. Glad we did -- the colors match our room perfectly. the golds in the image are more taupe/brown while the blues in the image are more grey blue. There is really only faint gold tones. It is mostly a taupe shade. So far, no shedding, but it's only been one day.

  • Nice Carpet

    We are happy with the carpet. It arrived astonishingly quickly, and was exactly as described. It is a couple inches smaller than the 15x12, which we had read in another review before we bought the carpet, and that was perfect for us, as we needed it to be that way. It's thick, soft, lies perfectly flat without any bumps, and has no imperfections or problems. It was a hundred dollars cheaper than one seller on **** and $200 cheaper than another seller on line. No one was close to's price, and with delivery essentially free ($2.95?), it's hard to beat. We had bought carpets before at *****, but beat their prices for the same carpet by 20%. It definitely is shedding a lot of fibers in the first month since we got it, but that is something we were warned about and we just have to vacuum the rug a couple times a week for a while I guess.

  • nice rug

    Nice quality rug for exceptional price. I"m giving 4 stars because the colors of the rug appear washed out. (one picture in the description was washed out and the close up was not, we had hoped the the rug would be closer in color to the close up picture but it was not.
