CONS: First of all the rug is MUCH lighter than the picture. Like pastel blue etc. The picture looks like a cherry kind of color panel border with burgandy accents in the corners. Ok no that's not what the rug actually is. It's actually a salmon color all along the borders with a claret color in the 4 corners and 3 other smaller places in the rug. Salmon is kind of a pinkish orange. It's the only thing about the rug I am not digging. It has an eclectic style with such a broad spectrum of colors so I can understand why it's lighter but I was hoping for a rug more like the picture in regard to color. In a large room I like a lighter color rug because it pulls a grouping together becoming a focal point. In a smaller room I like a darker smaller carpet that doesn't dominate but pulls from the general color so it doesn't swallow the room like a big room full of carpet with crammed in furniture. The room I needed this rug in was the smaller variety so I'm not completely satisfied but.. PROS: Even without a carpet pad this rug is super thick. It's very much wool feeling to bare feet so a little ruff like it's supposed to be. The back of the carpet has the nicer cloth carpet border sown securely to the backing from corner to corner to decrease possibility of curling and unraveling. It lays very flat and looks like a more expensive rug than it is. It's a gorgeous rug really. You just need to understand the salmon claret combo and that the overall effect of the rug is lighter beige.. NOT like the picture which looks like reds and golds. I will use it in one of the bedrooms. I'm not returning it. This is a high quality rug for a very affordable price. The quality is 5 star Representation of color to the customer is why I gave it a 'good'
I bought this rug for my foyer (along with the matching 2x8 runner) and it's beautiful. The colors are lovely and the rug is very soft and has a wonderful, thick pile. It doesn't curl or bunch, and doesn't slide. The rug also isn't shedding. Overall, a great rug, for a great price. I'm very happy with the purchase. The shipping as very fast too!

I really liked this rug, however the colors were a bit off of what they appeared to be on screen. It's a thick wool rug for the price. The location that I bought it for didn't work and then I tried it in another location. Alas, it's going to have to go back. I have purchased several rugs from Overstock and have always been pleased with the quality.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The edge color appears as a deep burgundy in the photo, the actual color is more like a light claret wine color

I started out 4 years ago with 1 medium and 2 small rugs in this same style and pattern for a bedroom. Now ordered 2 more for an adjacent study for a unified look. All match perfectly, and the fact that the 4-year-old rugs look the same as the brand new ones speaks well to the durability and quality. When brand new, they will shed some fuzz, but not for long.
The carpet is pretty but not well made. It sheds a lot which is going to make it fade over time. For the price it might be worth it, but be prepared to buy a new one every few years.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Just fine; the shedding is more than expected
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? colors a bit more vibrant on the website
I love this rug! I have never bought an area rug without seeing it with my own eyes so this was a gamble. It complements the colors in my home and is a pleasure to step on as it is so plush! The price made it worth the gamble one I'm glad I made! If you think the colors will work take the leap you won't be sorrry.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very close to what was pictured.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Plush so great to walk on and a tight fiber so easy to clean, in general excellent!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate site description.
This is a wool rug not some chemical stew. I really know of no advantages of synthetic rugs other than silencing the whiners about initial shedding. These rugs are warm, non-reflective (quieting) beauties. I returned to Safavieh for their high-quality and durability. And I loved Overstock's price and quick free delivery. I just wish the price wasn't a moving target.
The colors are definitely not as vibrant and rich as in the photo, nor does the rug have the silky gleen the photo depicts. That said, it is still pretty and certainly fit the space that I needed. It's just a more muted version of what the photo shows. Overall I am pleased.
