I purchased this rug anticipating that it would match my new green couch as this rug does have green undertones. It really matched well. It does cast a very golden hue if you're thinking about purchasing. Overall, I'm pleased with the shipping, the value and how it looks.
First, I must say that the rug itself is very nice. It is actually a beautiful rug. But the colors online appear much warmer - yellows, golds, even orange-y warm, and in 'real life' the colors are very cooll/neutral. The description of the rug does say 'Ivory/Brown' and that's a fair description, although even the brown is muted. I'd describe the overall color as oatmeal more than ivory. Other reviewers warned that the color online wasn't accurate, but I took the chance anyway.
We looked on Overstock for a long time before selecting this rug. My review is mixed. The rug is soft and the colors are muted. The design looks much sharper on the computer. I think of my rug like a blurry picture. Because a lot of the colors in the rugs are so similar, it's hard to see all of the design clearly. I wish the design was clearer. That said, we really like the color palate and this rug will work well in our dining room. The rug does shed, but I don't mind vacumming it. Also, you can't beat the price of this rug. Even with it's drawbacks, it's a great rug for the price. In fact, after we received that rug I went to Target and Lowes to look at rugs again and for a 6x9 their rugs were at least $100 more and weren't as good quality. We won't send it back, but this isn't our forever rug and that is what I was hoping for. Shipping took 7 days and the rug came in great shape. We have purchased other things from Overstock with great results and so I will continue to use Overstock.
We are happy with our first internet rug purchase. We were skeptical of rug buying this way, but this rug proved to be just as nice as the two rugs I bought locally in stores near my home. It's not the plushest, thickest rug but it's very nice quality for the price. We are pleased and it matches the decor I have, which is an olive colored sofa and creme colored accent chairs with rust colored decorations. It's perfect!
I have had this rug for a few weeks now and am mostly pleased with it. As previous reviews mentioned, the color is far more muted than the online picture suggests. More cream/taupe than gold. I trusted the reviews as I didn't want such a gold look, so I'm glad it turned out ok from that respect. As other reviews have also mentioned, there is quite a bit of shedding. I've never owned a rug before (I was always too intimidated to choose one, so stuck with hardwood floors) so I didn't know what to expect in that regard. The wool is soft and comfortable, and I guess that wool will shed, so not much you can do about that. I'm swiffering and vacuuming quite a bit though. Hopefully after a couple of months it will have shed enough and settle in. If it continues for longer than that I will regret the purchase :(. Aside from that though, it's a gorgeous rug, really complements my decor, makes the living room feel far cosier and pulled together. And you can't beat the price.
