Very pretty rug. As for Oriental design, very large and open blocks of color. I compare it to looking at American stained glass versus antique European Stained glass windows which are much more intricate with less wide open color. In choosing a rug (hind sight suggestion), actually count how many repeated motifs are in the border. I kept focusing on the color and when I now compare this rug with the other I was looking at, I realize that 5-7 motifs along the edge of a 12' rug will leave wide open background color and be blockier. Rugs that are difficult to distinguish on the screen have more of the antique look with intricate design.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? much brighter colors and brown border was very pronounced
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. nicely made with even color and good construction
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? wish the colors had shown more accurately. The picture depicts a delicate pattern and this is bold and bright
The Safavieh Heritage wool rugs are an incredible value. Great quality. Having said that, it's difficult to evaluate the colors and actual look of the rug online. Especially without contextual pictures. I would recommend OS allow customers to upload actual pictures to help us to better determine the true look of the product. Received the rug super fast without any problems. 150 lbs packaged folded up in brown paper and high tensile plastic wrap. The rug itself is beautiful but the colors are quite bold and pronounced. Especially with such a large rug. The chocolate brown border is very prominent and the "generic blue" is a deep teal with definite green hues mixed in. Hence the rug really isn't primarily a blue rug. We wanted something along the lines of a baby blue or soft bright blue. This rug is a deep and bold teal. Almost coordinating with some of the darker shades of the teal in the Miami Dolphins colors. Not quite as green as that but also not really blue. This is just to help future buyers understand the true color to better coordinate the rug with other decor. The chocolate brown is also dark and prominent. Overall the rug is thick, luxurious, and beautiful. But also bold and somewhat deep / dark in color. We ended up returning it and are purchasing the XXXXXXXX XXXXX Blue color rug to try to get more blue tones. Hopefully that will work out better for us. The return process is straight-forward. Initiate a return from your "Orders" page. Print the UPS label. Re-package the item and label it. Schedule a UPS pick-up. Return shipping is about 75 dollars or so (since it's over-sized) but otherwise glitch free. We are still in the middle of returning this rug and purchasing the lighter blue mentioned but overall strongly positive interaction and I'd be more than happy to purchase from OS in the future. Hopefully the transaction continues smoothly as well.
The rug is very nice and it was a great price for the size and weight-it really is 150 lbs. However, the color is inaccurately described- it is not blue- the color is teal and a greenish teal at that. It is too hard to return so I am modifying my color scheme to accommodate the difference but I had wanted a blue rug or even bluish teal would have been fine. The quality seems good but the edges were dirty when I unwrapped it and I keep vacuuming to try to clean them. They will be under furniture so we can live with that. The delivery was prompt, as always.
more blue is definitely blue not a light grey. good quailty vaccum often first few weeks. Acuurate

I am very very happy. I was really really anxious to make such a big purchase and was more than happy to see such a beautiful rug. The blue looks somewhat teal in day light but looks very pleasing. The border is brown which is good, although it looks black in the picture.
