The challenge for me in ordering this rug was what is the accurate color. The page shows a darker version and a golden version of the same rug. It is the darker version that is more true to the rug color and it is beautiful. The oak leaf boarder is especially lovely in the design. I am not sure that it is "charcoal green" to me it looks more like a dark army green with lighter shades of accent greens. I could not be happier with the rug's quality. The rug is nice and thick. I don't use pads under my rugs as it is such a hassle and I don't need it for grip. With some rugs the backing deterioates and leaves a "sandy" type grit on the floor. I have not had this problem with the Safaveh rugs in the past so I am hoping the same holds true for these rugs. After ordering this one to check the color, I ordered the large 8 x 10, and 2 runners. The best tip I got from a reviewer is to order the smaller rug to check the color so if it doesn't work you can ship it back more easily. Overstock is terrific about store credit on returned rugs. NOTE: When I returned a 8 x 10 rug, the UPS store clerk said that it just met the maximum standards for shipping. I am not sure what would have happened if I was sending back an 11 x14 rug.
I was really looking forward to receiving this Rug..I was looking for a Grey wool for awhile . when it arrived it was total earth tone colors not a bit of grey...Now saying that..it is a GEORGEOUS RUG...I did not keep it though because the colors where very bad for my room because I needed Grey...The rug was sooo thick it was Great..Please do not hesitate to order this rug if you want a muted earthtones color...the grey that it was suppose to be was a definite muted Light Moss green..Again a BEUATIFUL THICK RUG! BEAUTIFUL EARTHTONES..not grey.. this is why I only rated it as a four..only because of the color description..

I bought several rugs in a batch and this was the one I kept. The main reason being it did not have an unpleasant (chemical) odor as did the others of a different design. But as a result I learned a lot about the tufting process and will be careful in the future. I recommend that anyone who has lung issues read up on the difference between hand tufted and hand knotted. This rug (while hand tufted) did not have any odors associated with the latex glue often used on the backings. This rug is quite beautiful as others have said. It is very elegant looking and looks great on our new hickory wood floors. I can't recommend it any more highly. Regarding the colors: it seemed different in real life than on the screen. More beautiful, more muted affect. On screen, the golds seem brighter than in person. The result is much more elegant and blends well with everything in the room. I wish there were even more sizes to consider. Thank you Overstock.
