I took a chance and ordered this because it had the shade of slate blue in it with splashes of color mathing my hardwood floor color. The slate blue looks more grayish but if you put it next to blue, it looks more blue. Also the patterned details show up quite crisply in the photo, but are much more muted which is perfect for what I wanted. The tones seem to blend together nicely not outdoing each other. The value is great since I looked around for wool carpets and most were much more expensive and the pile was not as soft. It does shed so you have to vacuum more often. Shedding seems to be slowing down now after 1 month. It is in my family room so it is a high traffic area and it is the perefect accent rug. I would recommend it. If you are looking for a blue rug, this is more grayish/slate blue but still works with blue. Delivery was quick and timely.

The colors on my rug are definitely softer, lighter and MUCH more muted than pictured. I would call it a medium gray-blue. The pattern is not as crisp, which I was pleased with as it gives the rug more of an old-world feel. My rug did arrive slightly damp on the inside (possibly from rain during shipment?), which I thought was really weird. I contacted customer service and told them that I wanted to make sure I had the option of returning it if in case it started to get an odor. The woman said she took note of it and it would not be a problem. We propped the rug up to let it air out and put a fan on it. It dried completely and still does not have an odor over a year later. I have had trouble (thanks to an elderly dog) with stains. We used Nature's Miracle and got almost all of the discoloration out. I don't think anyone else would notice. Scrubbing did pull out an excessive amount of fibers, but tufted wool rugs aren't meant to be scrubbed. This rug did shed slightly more than another that I purchased, but not excessively so. Take note not to use a beater brush when vacuuming! It is also not quite as soft at my much more expensive XXXXXXX XXXX rug, but I have it in the formal dining room for looks and it isn't an issue for me. Overall, I am quite pleased with my purchase. My only disappointment (besides the weird dampness) was that it does have a noticeable amount of mauve in the pattern.
I love this rug. It is exactly what I was looking for. The colors are a little cooler in person than they appear on the website, but it is just what I wanted. The background is a soft greyish blue with sage green and raspberry pink accents and the border is beige. I am very pleased with this rug. Mine didn't smell like fish. The service from overstock was excellent, as usual. I received this large rug in only a few days. I am very pleased!

Overall, I am pleased w/this rug. The colors are very muted, which is what I wanted. However, I have had the rug on my floor for two weeks now, and when I open the door to my dining room, there is a strong smell, not unlike tuna/sardines. I am hoping it will continue to dissipate w/time.

We are 3 for 3 on rugs from Overstock! This one is by far the largest and most expensive of the 3 (and the biggest risk, since there were no reviews available), but we were not disappointed, The quality is excellent and the rug is beautiful - colors are softer and richer in person - we love it! We'll definitely order again
