It is a nice rug for the price. But please note that the picture you see here is not what the actual rug looks like. The picture has about 25 small blocks of various colors, but the actual rug has only 13, and the colors are duller and darker too. I don't want to suggest misrepresentation, but the picture may be for a much bigger rug instead of a 6' rug. The customer service was great and they agreed ***. Still it was very disappointing and a big hassle too to wrap the rug back into the package for return. This is the first time I buy rugs online and is also the last time.

The rug arrived about an hour before the decorator to do window treatments. We sprung it on him and his comments were "I love it!" and "It is wonderful." and "You can't find a square oriental any place any more." He had no idea that we were throwing a new figure into the equation. And as a old-line prominent area designer he asked "Where did you get it?" I told him "Overstock.com." He had no familiarity with it, so I told him the price. He was stunned but as a man of integrity kept raving about it. He designed elegant window treatments for our breakfast room around it. The window treatments were several times what we paid for this beautiful, thick, plush, warm, rich, elegant rug! That is OK because thanks to Overstock.com we came in under budget! Our next project is to rip up the carpet in our bedroom and put hardwood floors down. Can't wait to find an oriental for it!

Ok, buying a rug online is iffy from the standpoint of just color alone. It's hard to get an accurate image of the color because it all depends on your monitor settings. And without seeing the rug, how do you know your settings are correct? Every rug I've bought online has never been the same as the picture on the website, the colors are always muted. Same in the case of this rug. However, even though the colors are muted than the ones shown in the picture, they are still vibrant. The red is not a true red, more like a brick red or rust. What shows up as a creamy yellow, is more of a dark cream or beige. The green is a darker green, more like a fern green. The light blue is slightly darker and so is the brown. Navy is accurate. It's a beautiful rug and the price is a steal! It rolled out okay, the ends curled a bit but a day or two with a heavy box placed on them flattened them out. This is a thick wool rug. Feels soft on the feet. I vacuumed as soon as I laid it out, and did almost fill the canister. There hasn't been any noticeable shedding since then. But then, I live on my own and have no pets. It may shed more with higher traffic. Remember, all wool rugs shed in the beginning and shedding will decrease with frequent vacuuming. I highly recommend the rug. Looks kind of medieval, antiquey, the design and the colors. And it has brightened up my apartment (put it on top of living room carpet). Oh, it has a backing, you don't see the pattern on the reverse side. Hope I've helped!
Fast shipping as usual. Love the nice vivid colors.

This is the first rug that I have taken a chance on buying sight unseen. It is even better than I had anticipated. The colors are beautiful and the pile is rich feeling. I have persian rugs in my home and this rug fits right in. I have already ordered another rug. The price is excellent. It certainly arrived quickly.

I've had this rug for several months and i love it. it is thick and the colors are deeper than those in on screen. It is a deep rich color, and the dark blues are beautiful. It shed's very little, and only in the beginning when vacuumed. I like it more every day, and i liked it when I first got it.
