The first several weeks there was a ton of shedding, which was disappointing, but also was mentioned in several reviews, so we accepted that. However, just a few months in the rug started to pull and unravel. It is noticeable and has to be replaced. Do not buy this item- horrible quality.
I'm going to return this rug, but it's mainly because it doesn't fit with my decor. The rug is accurately described, and the color appears to be the color pictured on the website. I bought the 9 x 12 size, so I don't know about the other, smaller sizes, but the scale of the pattern is huge. Each white trellis is 14.5 inches wide and 19 inches long, and that is measuring inside the pattern. I think the rug has such a large scale that it dominates the room. The white trellis part is a cut wool and the blue part is a looped wool. I've had problems in the past with my dog catching her claws in looped wool rugs and then chewing the wool that comes loose. The rug is a very pretty sky blue, but it's just not for me. The pattern is just so large I can't find any accessories that aren't overwhelmed by it.

Had been looking for a patterned modern rug for a while in Australia and found nothing at under $2000.00. This one had a perfect design and great colour for my living room. I also wanted something a bit plush so I can sit on the rug and read a magazine etc, so flatweave wasn't an option. This one is quite soft and has a pleasant feel under foot. Does require a lot of vacuuming at this stage as little wool tufts keep appearing, but looks great again after a vacuum. Not sure if the tufts will stop after I've had it a while.

I have dark hardwood floors and all you see around the rug are white rug hairs. I have to vacuum and sweep all of the time. Plus it is hard to clean even the smallest stains off of this rug. I wouldn't recommend in a high traffic area. Doesn't seem like the best quality.
The look of this rug is awesome. However, the shedding and picking is not. The picks are not too bad and should be expected every now and then. However, we vacuum this rug almost everyday with a dyson and it fills the tank up. I hope that it will eventually slow down and still have rug left to enjoy. The cream in the rug can look a little dingy at times also. Overall, not a bad rug for the price but be ready to vacuum non-stop.
This carpet is beautiful on dark hardwood floors. They quality is excellent and there has not been much shedding. The color is a beautiful blue and the raised patterns are definitely more of a cream color than white. I have looked at several other carpets similar to this and they were not the same quality and even cost more. If you are looking for this style of rug...you WON'T be disappointed!!!
Love the color and style and design of this rug! So pleased that it comes in the round shape. I bought this with the 8x10 of the same style. Very happy! It does shed a bit, but nothing a vacuum cleaner can't clean. The cream quatrafoilesque design is raised, which is great because it adds texture. But, we have a pool table resting on our 8x10 and had a hard time positioning it just right so that it wouldn't be off balance. Worth it though!
I love this rug! Its the perfect color (as described on the website) and because it is wool it doesn't have the stinky new rug problem. And it is almost identical to my mom's rug and when she found out what I paid for mine she almost disowned me (great price). Thanks Overstock!
The blue looks different from what is pictured. At least on my computer it looks like a light sky blue. In person the color is a bit more saturated and what I would call periwinkle. I definitely think it has a purple/gray undertone to it, and since the room I put it in has pale aqua in it, the periwinkle does not go. The color is still gorgeous, just more of a periwinkle than the sky blue it seems like online. It sheds quite a bit, which may stop over time. It also smells like a barn. My daughter won't go in her room now because of the smell. It is also itchy. It feels fine under your feet but it's very itchy to all other skin. Since it's in my daughter's room where she likes to lay on the floor to play or do flips, it's just too itchy to keep. I'm sending it back. It is beautiful and thick, but keep in mind, it's periwinkle, the "white/cream" pattern is beige, it gives your house that nice barn smell that no one is after, and it's too itchy for anything other than feet.
This rug was recommended to me by a friend and I find it very beautiful. The blue colour matches the one on the photo and it does look lovely in our living room. Nevertheless, I must say that the colour of the lines looked white on the photo, but it's more of an ivory shade, although that is not a problem. Delivery was very quick, although it was sent to Europe (only one week!)
