This is our third rug purchase from Overstock and they really screwed up on the color. It looks absolutely nothing like the picture. Here's what they say about the color: beige background with a light blue border with stunning accents of green, rust, gold, ivory and blue. The rug is very dark...the primary color is a dark taupe. The blue is a dark chambray blue. There's no green that I can see and the rust is more like a cranberry color. It is the usually thick quality of the brand but color is really disappointing.
This is a high quality, beautiful rug. The colors are much darker than the ones in the picture. I was expecting rug to have a goldish tone to it. It is much more brown. However, I love it! I really adds great dimension to the room. The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 is because of the color difference.
The picture is not what the rug looks like. The backround color is taupe and the blue is a washed denim color. I wanted it to be a lighter,more yellow gold color as shown. I was disappointed at first,but I put it in my family room and it's beautiful,soft to walk on and blends fabulously with my oak hardwood floors.
I read the reviews before I purchased so I knew what to expect of the colors. The main color is not gold, but taupe. It was what I preferred. I saw it accurately pictured on an auction website under "Safavieh Classic Beige/ Light Blue Wool Area Rug 7' 6 x 9' 6 - CL387A-8." My rug was actually an inch shorter in both directions though.
I could not get this rug rolled up and packaged for return quickly enough! As soon as I opened the package I smelled the mildew. For some unknown reason I continued to unroll the rug. The only bright spot was Customer Service, so hopefully the rug will be returned without my being charged shipping. When I rolled the rug back up I noticed white powder all over my floor where the rug had been. I think this had been noted in another review, possibly being dried glue residue. Whole room still smells of mildew. This is my second rug from Overstock. The first, by the same manufacturer, is also wool and completely beautiful after two years of use. I might try another rug, we'll see.
