  • Disappointed in the color.

    I eyed this rug for many, many months. I read all of the reviews and the only thing that was holding me back was the difference in reviews in regards to the color. I was wanting a rug that was blue, taupe, cream and red and this rug seemed to meet my wants. So, I finally hit the purchase button in January 2014. The rug arrived very quickly and I was beyond excited. The rug I received was taupe, cream and red however, the blue I was expecting and hoping for was actually a greenish gray. So yes, I was very disappointed. I guess that is just the risk you take when ordering on-line. I kept the rug and love the subtle pattern. It does have a terrible chemical smell but that went away after about 4 days. It does shed heavily for several months and does get less and less every month.

  • Beautiful

    This is a really beautiful rug. The colors are muted with a grayish taupe border and cream and soft blue. It has pops of cranberry in the center but the red is not too bright. I wish I had ordered a bigger size because it is so pretty. It is in my master bedroom and looks beautiful with my soft blue duvet, taupe walls, cream drapes and cranberry chair.

  • Beautiful rug, color not exactly like photo

    I bought two of these rugs, the 5X8 and the 9X12. They are close, but the 5X8 is lighter all around. If you're looking for something that actually looks antique, these do not, but the colors are beautiful and I really like the rugs. They are muted enough that they don't steal the show...I wanted them to protect my beautiful new wood floors, but not be too flashy. These are looking expensive and doing their job for a great price. They do shed though, I've had them about a month and I'm still sweeping nearly everyday, but I need a new vacuum (I don't trust it) so I'm not vacuuming them regularly which would probably help a lot.

  • Be Warned

    The rug is fairly attractive and at first appears thick and well-made. However, it has continuously pilled since we first received it, and our surrounding floor is always littered with fibers from the rug. A good quality rug will not do this, so you do get what you pay for in this case.

  • Lovely Rug

    At last I found a rug to tie together all the colors of my living room!!! It is classy and pretty, but does not call too much attention to itself. I purchased two of these and am very happy with the quality of both.

  • Too much blue for me

    Rug arrived quickly and packages well. It did have a slight odor but I'm sure it would have disapated within a a few days. Rug was thick and very nice to the touch. I don't think I would have needed a pad underneath. The back is canvas so you might need something to keep it from slipping. Colors were nice, but not was I was expecting. The border looked like a light slate blue, the rest of the colors were very muted and had a vintage old world look. I think ligthing has a lot to do with it. My entry is a spice gold color and went well with the rest of the rug, but it made the blue stand out much more. The colors include a nice taupe-y tan color in the center with pops of rusty red a bit of gray and some muted gold, the blue was just not a color I was expecting.

  • Wool Rug

    I was delighted with my recent purchase of a 5 x 8 tan/ivory rug from Overstock. It is a perfect fit for the space and everyone comments on how much it lightens the entrance hall. I had looked several places both online and locally and coulnd't find anything I liked for the price and thickness of this rug. I finally decided to order the rug. It is great. It sheds just a little (which is normal for a wool rug), no problem at all and I am enjoying it to the max. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely, substantial rug that will show nicely for years with minimum care.

  • Good Value Rug

    You always worry whether colors shown on computer are actually reflected versus the item in person. You want it to match the decor but it doesn't always work out that way. I can honestly say it did completely match. Rug is made in China and is a wonderful value. Despite being new, it does have to be vacuumed immediately to get out the loose wool fibers that remain from its manufacture. Pile is very thick and lush which belies it's cost. I can't invest big dollars because of the cats. And other than a rug dealer no one would know it is a closeout bargain.
