nice thick heavy rug- but 2 warnings- the blue is a very bright blue (not a duller blue as i expected) and it does shed terribly... it's been a month and about 7 or 8 vacuuming times and it's still shedding. other than that i love it. and in the center where it is more blue than i was after, will be a coffee table anyway to help break it up.
When I first unrolled it, I thought it was perfect. But than I noticed that the blue in the center is a lot more brighter than the muted color blue in the picture. So be aware of that.. Not 100% sure if we are going to keep the rug only because of the color.. but the quality is very, very good!
When I ordered the product I was aware of the fact that the colors might be muted due to past experiences - and they are, but not as much as I had expected. The pattern shows beautifully and even though the border is less 'yellow-ish' and more 'camel', the contrasts work nicely. The blue is what I'd imagine for a 'heritage' blue: It is somewhere between a stormy sky blue and a 'worn' denim. Nice! The carpet has a soft, thick feel.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? More muted in nature.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality feels nice to naked feet. It's soft and thick and has a luxurious feel combined with a good look.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Besides the color description the description of the rug is accurate.
The color is stronger and a little clearer than shown on the website, but not brighter. So the blue is a slightly greyed wedgewood blue, and a strong color, but not bright. The gold is definitely a strong gold, but not brash. The rug is vibrant and certainly holds it's own in a room without being overpowering. It adds warmth and color without dominating. It has a very comfortable and thick pile. Only slight shedding. I do use the rug pad with it and it's very comfortable to walk on.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Website color is not as strong it really is
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice quality, esp for the price

I was ready for bright blue based on all the comments. So, I was ready. It is not a subdued gray blue, but it is not a bright blue. I was more surprised by the amount of maroon outlining the design.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Somewhat off
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I like the thick wool rugs, and am willing to put up with the shedding
I read all the reviews about this rug being blue, and I thought how blue could it be. Well they were right, if you want a blue, blue rug, get this one. I love it but it did not work for me.

After reading all the other reviews about this rug regarding the shade of blue, I purchased this area rug. The shade of blue is very bright (as others said), however, it is not a "true blue" color -- it is more of a light teal or greenish- blue color. While it is not sky blue (as I had hoped), it is still a beautiful blue and blends in well with the other shades of blue in my family room. The rug changed the whole look of the room -- it is now much more bright and welcoming! The rug also is a nice thickness and very soft.
I love the look of this rug but it sheds horribly. I've had it for about 2 years. It fills my vaccum everytime!! With a new baby that's crawling all over it, I am looking to replace it. His clothes are covered in wool. There is always wool laying next to the rug on my hardwood. If I had a room that didn't get used often I would put this rug in there, but unfortunately I don't.
the colors in the rug look much sharper and distinct in photo. In person the lines are much more blurred, which is not necessarily bad, but it just did not work for me. For the price it is not a bad rug, but is not nearly as thick or nice as the one I was going to replace. So I ended up sending it back. if you are using a lot of blues, creams and some brown with light wall it will probably work for you.
I have ordered three of these rugs for different rooms in my house. Two of this size and a smaller one. The smaller one is yet to arrive, but I'm expecting it to be the same great quality as the other two. At first I wasn't in love with this rug. There is a rust/brown color that doesn't show up in the picture that I thought made the rug look cheap. However, after living with it a while and many compliments, it won me over and I ordered more. The blue and gold are much more vibrant than on my screen, but they are beautiful and a great value. You won't be disappointed.
We ordered these rugs to help protect newly installed light oak flooring. The colors were perfect for the floor, the rugs are very thick and with the non-sked padding, they do not slide around. We purchased a long runner and two 3x5 rugs of the same make and color. We will order two more 2x3 rugs of this type now also. The rugs do shed quite a bit, as expected, but has already slowed in just a week. An excellent rug.
Rug is lovely but all colors are MUCH darker than photo! The blue is more of a teal or spa blue than the UNC Carolina blue (go Heels!) that I expected and the lighter gold is closer to a deep tan. As for shedding, it's a wool rug...they all shed for a while.
I was hesitant when I ordered this rug but am very glad I did. It looks very elegant and expensive, thick and plush with exceptional detail. It wasn't exactly the color I was looking for but realized it was even better. It can pull in warm or cool colors.
The quality and style of the rug are very nice, but unfortunately the blue wasn't the shade I was looking for. I was hoping for a light blue with a hint of green in it - more of a seafoam - and from the picture I thought this could work. I read all the reviews regarding the shade of blue, but since opinions varied so much, I decided just to cross my fingers and give it a try. I was disappointed to see that the blue has no hint of green in it. It's very blue, and a deeper shade than I expected with a hint of gray. I would agree with another reviewer that called it a stormy blue. It's a pretty color, just not what I was hoping for. I knew I was taking a risk buying it sight unseen, and I plan to use it in another room since it's still a very attractive rug and the price was great. Another note regarding the colors: the brown accents are not what I expected. It's more of a light maroonish brown rather than a darker brown as shown in the picture. I'm not a fan of the shade, but at least there's not so much of it that it ruins the rug for me. Overall a very nice rug, but if you're looking for a pale greenish blue, this isn't it.
