After reading the great reviews of the rectangular Heritage Rug I felt quite happy buying the oval one. When I unwrapped it I did notice the colours were as people had said very muted and not like the picture at all. There is no gold in this carpet. I noticed some yarn pertruding from one area and when I really looked there was yarn pertruding everywhere. It was as if the machine had not cropped it evenly. Then I found 3 individual small holes where the yarn had not woven into the backing. Around the edges it was really poorly finished. Quite rough actually. I do have to say that I called Overstock.com and they acted in an excellent manner. Sending me a return shipping label and being very helpful. So to that I give a 5 Star, for Service. Seeing as the reviews were so good on the rectangular carpet that one maybe Ok.
A beautiful rug. Soft and plush. The colors are more muted than the photo, give an overall impression of sage green. I wanted that and it had been described in another review and it makes an elegant and understated impression. Prompt delivery, in excellent condittion. Looks more expensive than it was. A good experience, I immediately bought a second carpet, a runner, and am equally pleased.
I just received this rug yesterday and placed it in my living room. Oh my gosh, it is soooooo soft and it's absolutely beautiful. It doesn't overpower the room and I highly recommend this because of its oval shape. It is very good quality for the price. It's definitely a winner in my household.
