I bought this area rug to match a hallway runner purchased about a year ago. How fortunate that Overstock had the exact same style (down to the style #s) ... and it looks ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS !! As others have commented, the carpet does shed (so did the runner) but this will dimiinish over time. A very happy customer ... Thank you, Overstock!

I shopped in stores and online for at least six months looking for a large rug (approx 10x 12) that was not over $1000, but still beautiful and high quality. It was a little scary to order this rug without a swatch or catalog photo to look at, but I am so glad we did. The colors are true to the online photo and description and the quality is excellent. It is an absolutely gorgeous rug...and you gotta LOVE the price!
Very happy with this rug purchase. If you are considering it, the other reviews are correct in that the colors are very true to what shows on your monitor. Be prepared to vacuum OFTEN however between the shedding (which I hope will diminish in time) and the black background (it shows just about everything) . I filled up the Shark Vacuum Canister after only owning the rug 1 week. In all fairness, however, this rug is in a high traffic area in my home and we have pets. There are a few places that feel rather "rough" in the rug. It's not a problem for us, but if you plan to be barefoot quite a bit, you will definitely feel this. All and all, I couldn't be more pleased. It's a gorgeous rug and looks to be very good quality. Happy with my purchase and I'm sure you will be too!
The photo for the rug was spot-on and the colors depicted were exactly as I expected, if not even better. The quality of the rug is that of much more expensive rugs available in any carpet/rug gallery in town. A known issue with handmade, hand tufted Orientals is that for the first several months, they shed noticeably. The rug was purchased in December and it's still shedding - though not as badly as it did at the beginning. The canister still collects wool fuzz, but it's not as bad as before, and like others I have in the house, I expect it to diminish and eventually stop. This is a very formal looking rug, probably due to the prominent black background so it would be most appropriate for a formal space like a living room or dining room, especially with traditional furnishings and textiles, or some transitional contemporary styles.
This rug is even more beautiful than the picture. Excellent quality and thick pile. The colors are rich and the design matches everything. When I walk on it, it is so soft and comfortable. My husband and I love this rug and it makes our living room look classy and put together. The folds from packing, laid flat when put on the floor. This rug looks like it came from a mansion! Well worth the price.
I have bought 7 rugs of various sizes from overstock and have been very happy with all purchases. This rug is beautiful and looks wonderful on our dark amber hardwood distressed floors. The theme of our house is of Old World nature and the rug is perfect. I would and have recommended overstock to all my friends and family. They always get the order out in a timely manner. Overall we have been very pleased and will continue to buy from them.
Love the colors in this rug - I knew it would show every shade of lint that contrasts the black field it falls upon -- but truly cannot go more than 2 days without vacuuming thoroughly. It shed quite a bit - 3-6 months of filling the vacuum canister with the cut fibers is normal. Still quite plush and with cream-yellow walls (Candlelight) and taupe leather sofas with burnished silver lamps, this rug really ties the look together making a classic, stunning space. The rug is plush and comfortable to lay on - kids, pets, feet love it. Purchased the 'hard surface rug pad' to go beneath for stability and added longevity.
