This is the second rug I've ordered from Overstock.com, so I knew the quality would be excellent. The color is just what I was looking for, so no problem there. The negative reviews are the result the difference between what you see at the website and what you receive. For whatever reason, the photo is VERY bright, almost florescent. But this isn't a bright rug--it's very muted. The green is sage-y and in indirect light it can look almost pale blue-gray. It does have rust and dull gold accents. If you're looking for a big splash of color, this rug won't give you that. But if you're looking for subtle shades that won't jump out at you, it's a great choice. Also, I haven't had any problem with shedding or fuzz from either rug. Vacuuming for the first time didn't result in much fuzz either.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not very well

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty accurate
Because I read the so helpful reviews, I knew what colors I was getting. Even so, it was a surprise from the screen, but a very pleasant surprise. Great quality, exceeding expectations - holding up well in high traffic area. The overall appearance is a true light pea green.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No
- How is the quality of the product? Great
The gold on my rug is definitely NOT yellow. It's more of a muted pale pea green which gives the entire rug a pastel appearance instead of the bold contrast of yellow, green and red I thought I was purchasing. Great rug if you're looking for muted but disappointing if you're going for WOW. Nice thick pile.
We bought this rug and the 9'6'x13'6 rug. We bought the smaller one for our entry and the larger for the living area. The rugs are beautiful and we really love the color and design; however, we have had the rugs for 3 weeks now and after numerous vacuumings, the rugs continue to completely fill our bagless vacuum sweeper each time. We just now went over the smaller rug 10 times, and are still getting way too much shedding. We have wood flooring in our living room and the wool fibers are everywhere. We have asked for a replacement on the larger rug to see if we just got a defective product. If we have the same problem, we will probably return both rugs, even though it will be a major inconvenience. Has anyone else had this problem???
I actually purchased this 3x5 rug to match a 2x3 I had previously ordered. The colors in this 3x5 were different than the 2x3 and they are both in the same room. The 3x5 was actually more vibrant with beautiful colors of green, purple, gold, etc. I tried to contact Overstock and even Safavieh about finding a perfect match, but after a bit I decided to keep them both because they are lovely and look great in my master bathroom. I am pleased with the result.
I was very dissappointed to see the colors were dull and drab compared to the advertised picture. Not even close to the bright colors I hoped to received.

I bought this rug to go in our bathroom - we have a separate room with the vanity in it and I wanted something other than the standard bath rug like I have in the tub/toilet and shower room. This is perfect and looks and feels very elegant. I agree with the other reviews - the colors are much more muted than in the ad but that's fine with me. I have beautiful koi glass vessel sinks - that I bought from Overstock - and they are the real stars in the room and I wanted something to accent rather than compete with them and this rug is perfect in size and color.
I ordered a bunch of stuff from Overstock for my new apartment. Everything but the rug was excellent. It is still good -- but it has "shed" more than I expected. I am still satisfied, and it looks great. The reviews are correct, it is much less bright than depicted online. I still like it, though.
I purchased this rug based on the reviews that it looks more green than gold and it was true and matched my color scheme perfectly. I am using it in my entry area. The rug feels very soft and is made very well. Great price for this luxurious feeling and looking rug. I love it!
Sweet color combination for a spare room...can be accented with blues, greens, yellows or terracotta colors. There seems to be a an odor problem. If the room is closed for a day or longer, the rugs emit a bad odor though. I am working on this with airing them out and room odor remover products. I hope this helps, because the rugs are lovely and very nice in the room.
