I decided to keep this rug and risk buying another even though the colors where no where near the lighter blue depicted in the photo. Where it appears a golden color on the edge border is actually almost a light chocolate brown. Also the pattern is very much spread out so the effect you see in the image on the website is not as it appears on this very large rug on the floor. The other colors are actually a dark sage, a very dark gold and the lighter chocolate brown as mentioned above, and the over all blue is a muddy tone of blue. I hadn't finished decorating this room, so I adjusted my color palette to this rug and kept it.
I have bought nearly all the rugs in our house from Overstock, and have never had a problem with quality or color. I spend a LOT of time reading others' reviews though to get a sense of the color before making a purchase. Now it's my turn to "give back" and contribute how I see the color of the rug in person to help you also make an informed decision! The main color in this rug is the blue, which is more of a greyish-blue. Compared to the picture, the blue along the border in the photo is more representative of the color vs the blue in the main body of the carpet. The next most prominent color in the carpet is the border, which is a beige with grey undertones...it is more muted than what is in the picture. The other accent colors in the rug are light olive, dark olive, gold, medium brown and light brown. Hope that helps! I wish I had a better way of describing the blue in the rug, but it is not terribly different than the picture...just has more of a greyish undertone.
We were somewhat hesitant to buy online without being able to see and feel, but we needed a 10'x14" and were having trouble finding much selection at our price range. We liked the reviews, and now we like the rug. Colors are as displayed and work for us. Price was a ***** of hundred less than other sites. Quality is fine for our tastes- I have rugs of similar quality that are still good after 15-20 years. We had out first red wine spill (right in the middle of course) and immediately followed the online cleaning instructions, i.e., blot and blot with paper towels (Bounty is always a good choice.) and then soak with Dawn dish detergent/water mixture and blot and blot some more. Fortunately, we had a printout of the cleaning instructions at the ready. No stain- can't even tell there was a spill- on a beige and light blue rug no less. As a previous reviewer noted, the rug was delivered folded up rather than rolled. A bit unusual, but I guess it makes transport easier; and fold lines were surprisingly not an issue.
This is a very nice rug for the price. It looks great, and brought my dining room back to life.

Another great purchase from Overstock and priced right. The rug was delivered in only a few days. I was a little disappointed at first cause the rug was folded as opposed to being rolled up, but the creases came out right away after being laid flat. I always compare Overstock's prices to other websites before I purchase anything and Overstock always, always has the best prices. I love my new rug and have had a lot of compliments on it. Thank you Overstock. You are the best.
