  • So Pretty and Well Made!

    This rug is so beautiful in person. Everyone loves it. It looks/feels expensive and well made. I have ordered many Safavieh rugs from Overstock and this is by far the best in quality and color. It must be from a premium collection. It hardly sheds. The weave is dense. The bluish color actually changes depending on the time of day. It is tealish in the morning, greenish during the day, and blue-grey at night. This is because it is made up of individual yarns that are varied in color (some grey, some blue, some teal). The outer border is warm kahki taupe, as well as the inner designs. There are a few rust floral accents and some small maroon pops of color around the border. My toddler and teenager love to lay on it. It has become the area of choice for hanging out because it is so comfortable. The color is saturated and neutral all at the same time. It is not muted and bleached out like some of the other rugs I have ordered. . The details are pretty sharp for handtufted. The design is not feminine and not masculine. Overall just an awesome rug and a quarter of the price it sells for everywhere else.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Almost but not exactly
    • How is the quality of the product? Outstanding
    • Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
  • Great deal!

    I've never purchased a rug online before. What a nice surprise this was! Looks exactly like it did on the screen and feels wonderful. Our family is very hard on rugs (two kids, two dogs, and a small house where you MUST walk over the rug to get from one side of the house to the it gets an enormous amount of traffic). It has held up very nicely and is very comfortable to sit and play on. It does shed quite a bit but it is not bothersome (just have to sweep more frequently to get up the 'wool bunnies') and I know this will subside over time. I purchased the matching runner, too. Awesome rugs!

  • Very attractive rug

    Received this rug and love it. Background has highs and lows in muted blue (perhaps just the faintest hint of some gray blue). Border is ivory, beige and gold with accents of burnt cinnamon and burgundy. There are beige/gold accents throughout, which manages to warm the rug up even though it has cool tones, as well. It as not nearly as gold as it appears on my monitor, more beige, but still manages to go well in a room with gold curtains and yellow/gold walls.

    This is my second purchase of this particular rug.....the first was a larger size. I've already received several compliments on them.

  • Picture looks better than actual item

    I like the design and will keep this because it's too cumbersome to return. I wish the colors were brighter. The downfall is mainly the smell/odor. It has a strong chemical smell which gives me a headache so I air it out daily (over a week now) by laying it on my back deck from early morning to late evening. I bring it back into the house in the evening (due to weather) and take it back out in the morning. I will continue to do this until the smell is gone or subsides at which time I will be able to leave it in the house. Next time I'll check to see "where it's made"!

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The blue appears light grey and the edges are more beige/brown instead of yellow/gold
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's fine except for the smell. I can't tell if the chemical smell is from the dye or formaldehyde, but the carpet is sitting outside on my deck for airing since it has been giving me a terrible headache. It is now one week on the deck from early morning until late evening and it still smells.

  • Area rug

    The chemical smell of this rug is still overwhelming after several weeks. The rug is fairly soft and beautiful to the eye. The threads are pulling out far too quickly and easily. I can't for see this item lasting for more than 3-5 years, that disappoints me.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exact
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not so good
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate

  • It needs vacuuming regularly, but a great rug!

    A great looking rug at a great price. Great feel and a good, soft pile. My only issue with it is that it needs to be vacuumed pretty much every other day as the product seems to shed/breed dust bunnies frequently. It's a great rug otherwise!

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Colors on the website were slightly muted, but otherwise spot on.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very high quality Safavieh rug.
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate

    I don't recommend this rug. Lines are crooked, and it is still sheding little hairs months after purchase.
