After studying all the reviews for this style, I ordered the 12 ft runner prior to taking the plunge into the 9'6x13'6 size. Having received it, I can say that it is extremely well made, and subtly lovely. However, contrary to many other reviews, I find the rug far less green than essentially earth tone in nature. The green is a muted medium olive, and blends seemlessly into the other neutrals. It actually comes across as various soft earth tones, with the olive, dark blue and red providing a lively punctuation. I would have liked to know that the green is not the predominant coloration. Additionally, the online photos, particularly of the smaller rugs, depict it as being much brighter than it is. It is not a dark rug, but neither is it bright. Beautiful design, but mainly soft (muted) earthtones. This said, I will order the larger rug. I hope this helps!
This is a beautiful, thick wool rug that looks great on my hardwood floor. Had a hard time finding a runner that long (12') but it was worth the search, and the price was fantastic. The color is richer looking than in the website picture, but very close to the enlarged picture. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a classic wool rug.
Anyone shopping for a quality wool rug would recognize the brand name. The colors are beautiful; muted and soft. The rug is quite thick and does not shed. I compared the price from Overstock with other web sites to learn what a real bargain I got. I also purchased another rug (6' x 8') in the same colors, but a slightly different pattern. The runner is in my bedroom hall and the other in my dressing room. The green background is very soft with a slight blue cast.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colors were well represented.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? good quality
I just built a vacation home about 100 miles from NYC, and I have a bathroom that is 12'-9" deep. I ordered this 12'x 2'3" runner to span the length of my bathroom, and it fits perfectly between the walk-in shower and whirlpool. I wanted wool for my bare feet, and this runner is perfect. I also bought two 14' runners that perfectly match the 9'6" x 12' rug I placed in the living room. If I bought these items in dept. stores, I would have spent over $5,000.00, (I looked).
The pictures appear to be vibrant greens, blues, and reds. What you get is dirty, ugly grayed colors. I am very disappointed in these rugs. Unfortunately the quality is very good so I will be stuck with these ugly things for some time.
