I would recommend it for it's value and quality - it is a beautiful rug, the fibers that need to be cleaned are ENDLESS! So far, I've gone through 4 vacuum cleaner bags (to put this in perspective, I change a bag perhaps once a year) and the fibers keep coming up on this rug. It is incredible, never had a rug like this. However, if you can get by that, it is a very nice and good quality rug for the price.
Initially sheds a lot. After vacuuming over a few months shedding subsides; because of this the pile thins out. Great for the price and quality. Bonus is that it matches my Penzance Beige Linen Sofa purchased through Overstock. Looks good on my wood flooring. This is the 6th Safavieh rug I have purchased. The first one I bought in 2007, the style doesn't change which I like because it's classic. I was able to match with my previously purchased rug (11x9). I have an open concept living space with dining room and living room. The rugs are different color, but style match and appears as if I used a decorator.
I purchased this rug 2 years ago for my master bedroom. It is still beautiful and I admire it whenever I walk into the room. I don't notice the shedding everyone is talking about but I do have two dogs and have to vacuum regularly anyways. I am about to make another purchase of a Safavieh rug to coordinate with this one. They are all so beautiful and the price is right.
Aside from some annoying shedding mentioned in another review, the rug is truly lovely. The rug is under a 42" X 42" table with four chairs. The table and chairs fit inside the middle design leaving the border exposed. When the leaves are added, there is room for 8 chairs.
I am happy with this purchase as both the color and the size match the product description. Also arrives in good conditions from US to Australia !

This rug is lush and beautiful, richly colored. The only problem was a mis-delivery -- the first one that arrived was marked properly on the invoice but the rug itself was a completely different color. Customer service was terrific and immediately rectified the situation -- the new and proper rug arrived soon thereafter and is just as described. This happened again a couple of weeks later with another rug - same manufacturer, by the way. Once again, customer service handled everything instantly and cordially, and I believe the problem is at the factory, not with Overstock,com, but it is a nuisance. They could not have been more helpful, and in light of the overall convenience, pricing, and quality, I don't mind the errors.
