This is my second purchase of the same type of rug. I do find that the color descriptions are quite off, the pictures are somewhat accurate but of course monitors can be deceiving. I have noticed that the same style rug can appear different from one size to the next (so the pictures look different). Bottom line, it is a bit of a crap-shoot buying rugs on-line, but the quality of Safavieh can't be beat! Especially for the price. The border color (the "light brown") is more of a mustard-camel. The "grey" is definitely a grey-blue, but there is also a rich burgundy, a even hints of lilac and crème. There are so many lovely, rich colors in this piece, and the design definitely makes such a statement (so much so that I elected not to place this one under furniture so that the medallion can be fully viewed). I love how the pattern almost has a peacock feather design to it, which looks different in each shape of the rug. This last purchase hasn't laid flat just yet (there is a ripple about 1/3 of the way to the top which hasn't gone away just yet, put again, the rug isn't under furniture so it may just take a bit of time, or need to be rolled in the opposite direction for a bit). As always, the shipping from Overstock was exactly when expected and the item arrived in great condition.
We love this rug! My husband wanted an oriental rug but I felt they all looked too stuffy. This rug was a perfect compromise. It has an actual design rather than a repeating pattern. It was shipped rolled up, but it unrolled right away. It's nice to look at and it feels thick and soft under the feet when walking, rather than thin or hard like cheaply-made rugs. There has not been much shedding onto the wood floors around the rug. It's heavy enough to not require a no-slip mat underneath, which is great.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty accurate -- our rug measured 5'1" by 8'2"
This is an absolutely stunning rug, it is so thick and plush. I received it yesterday and my only disappointment with this rug is that it is actually not 'light brown' at all, it's a much richer brown, almost a cocoa color. I'm keeping it because it is so beautiful, and because its so thick and heavy that I couldn't even begin to think about packing it back up to return it. It's not exactly what I was hoping/looking for, but it still works in the room, just takes in a slightly different direction than I was planning on.
This rug exceeded my expectations, fitting nicely in my foyer. I have had several positive comments about it, my husband likes it, the dog likes it, and so far it has stood up to the traffic through the room. A very beautiful pattern.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? A bit darker than the picture, with a more dramatic pattern
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Solidly constructed, tight weave, holds up to the rockers on a rocking chair.
Great quality. I would have given this rug 5 starts but there was a lot of shedding the first 3 or 4 times i vacumed. It seems to be under control now. we Love it :)

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? on point
I purchased this rug based on having purchased the small round rug of the same pattern. The larger rug's pattern is less distinctive - the colors do not have the same tonal contrast as the small round rug. As a result it looks muddy. Rather than return it, I found an alternate placement for it in my home.
I ordered two of this rug to place on either side of the bed in my master bedroom. Individually, they are absolutely gorgeous. They're thick and plush to walk on. Oddly, they don't match exactly. The coloration is somewhat different with one being much bolder than the other. Also, the pattern in the border of one is bigger than the other, with the first rug showing much more of the background color and the second having a larger design. They don't look bad together but they "coordinate" rather than "match" as I expected. I'm going to keep them but the mismatch robbed them of my otherwise 5-star review.
The photo actually looks better than the rug in person. It's nice, but has a lot of blue/Gray in it which doesn't suit the color scheme in my bedroom. I put it in a spare room. Sheds a lot too. I have several other wool rugs by Safavieh that I love, but they all shed so much. That is a definite con.
needed a rug for my bedroom that would not show dirt because of all the animals that I have. This rug is soft-doesn't smell. The colors are muted which I like. It has hardly any fuzz when vacuuming which I like. This rug is just what I was hoping for. Love it
