I read all the reviews for this rug. I was concerned about the color. I wanted a brown tone, not too dark. Some descriptions said chocolate brown. I am a Designer. In my opinion, the colors on my monitor depict the color exactly, and this is not chocolate brown. For the record, if you were to turn the rug 180 degrees it may appear darker or lighter for you. The overall color is golden brown. The blue border is a true blue, light to mid tone, not slate. I was attracted to the red,as I wanted to tie in some red elements. The red is actually a deep rust. There is also a small amount of olive green which in my opinion gives the golden brown a green hue in some (day) light. My room faces true East where the rug is. It runs with the width parallel to the window. This is important because I have 2 of this same rug in this room. the other is close by and runs with the length parallel to the window and the golden brown appears a little darker due the direction of the yarns in the weave and how the light hits it. Rugs did loose some fibers. I vacuumed it extensively when it arrived, 3 vacuum canisters full, and again in 3 days, 1 cannister, again in 5 days and every 5 days since. This is to be expected with a new wool rug. The upside is that it can last for a life time. I moved my old rug into the bedroom after steam cleaning and that one is 14 years old and perfect, just doesn't work any more with new furniture. Hope this helps!
This rug is pretty, but not the same colors as pictured onscreen. The main color looks like a caramel brown onscreen, but in person the color appears to be something between sage and brown. There has been a little shedding; not too bad though. All in all it is a very nice rug at a good price, and it looks nice in my house.

This rug is beautiful. Thick pile, rich muted colors. Brown is a light cocoa , blue is almost denim blue. I was hoping for a lighter, slate blue. It apprears to be well made. I returned it because the blue was not as it appeared. The photos could not be zoomed in close in order to better see the true colors of the rug. Also, the rug takes on different shades depending on the angle viewed.
This is a beautiful area rug. The colors go very well together. The blue is a beautiful sky type of blue and the red accent is very nice. The colors are more muted than shown on screen, which I like. It goes very well in my living room where the dominant colors are beige and red.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color on screen as far as varying colors is accurate, but overall the rug is a little darker, more brown than gold

Beautiufl rug in a soft brown and sky blue. Looks great in my neutral colored bedroom. Didn't want anything too light, but this was just perfect. Nice thickness. Bought the 8' Round matching rug to put in the bedroom also.

Searched high and low for a rug to go in my dining room. Compared prices and the price, plus a special discount, was incredible for the size rug and quality. Color matched the description and picture on the screen. I have not had any shedding issues. This rug arrived very promptly and well packed. Excellent customer service as usual. I had a big party shortly after the rug arrived and I was concerned that there would be a lingering odor. This rug, out of the packing, had no odor and we never detected off-gassing. I received many compliments on the rug from our party guests. It goes beautifully with our decor.

This rug is thick and heavy. The colors do not look the same as they do in the picture, but they do match the description. Buying rugs online is tough, so I'll try to describe it clearly. The blue in the border is a bright blue and prominent. The background is a khaki brown/green. The barn red accent does pop and there is a fair amount of ivory or cream. It's a nice looking piece, but not as bright or gold looking as the picture. I haven't had any trouble with shedding, but it is a hand-tufted, not hand-knotted rug which is reflected in the price.

We couldn't be happier with this rug; in fact, after receiving it, we ordered three more in different sizes. The colors are exactly what I was looking for--steel blue with chocolate brown. Thanks, again overstock.com for making my shopping so much easier!!
This rug was delivered in great condition and came very quickly. We kept the rug, so we are generally satisfied with it, but expected the colors to be a little more vibrant. The rug is more of a dull brown, and the slate blue against the brown makes a very subtle contrast. But, for the excellent price for a rug this size, we're using it in the family room. It's great for that spot - it will get a lot of wear from a small child and a dog. The pattern is quite nice and a good intermediate scale for this size rug.
This is a beautiful rug! Colors appear sharper online, in real life to me the colors are softer, which I like. It would definately work with many colors. Our furniture is wine/brown red, also we have an olive green chair and walls are butterscotch /tan. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the shedding. We've had this rug aprox 2 mo, and I have to vaccum everyday. I'm hoping it will lighten up soon!! It is a beautiful and thick rug I love the colors and I am glad I ordered it :)
This rug is very nice and of great quality. It doesn't show the dirt,but does show the dog hair (oh well). It looks great with my new tan chenille couches. The colors are more of a chocolate brown and a slate blue than a golden brown like the picture, just FYI. I also purchased the round one for my foyer to match. It's not too masculine or feminine, just right. Even my husband loves it.
Really love the rug. Overstock has the best selections with the best price. I have ordered a few rugs from Overstock and have found that the colors do not always look exactly the same as shown on my computer. I always read everyone's descriptions but the colors appear to differ in some reviews. I wonder if this is due to different dye lots. The center beige and other colors but the blue are the same as shown on the web site. The blue is somewhat brighter than shown. I wasn't crazy about that at first but now I'm ok with it. I have ordered 5 different wool rugs from Overstock and this one sheds the most by far. I am willing to put up with that due to the beautiful, expensive appearance and the great price.
Good quality rug for the money, but colors on screen are not accurate, browns are not golden tones but more chocolatae tones. That said, others had made this comment so we were prepared for this and wanted the darker tones, so the rug is a keeper. Very little shedding to date, but i expect some with any wool rug purchased from overstock. I am happy with the purchase and the quality of the rug.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? not the same, as others have noted, the brown is a chocolate brown, not the golden tones that appear on my screen.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good, have had the rug for only a few weeks but this is not our first rug from this manufacturer, we are a repeat customer

It appears as if this rug was not beaten before it was shipped. It sheds like crazy. We have vacuumed it at least 20 times and it still sheds. I will not let my kid lay on it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The rug looks bright online but in fact it is very dull
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor. It sheds like a shetland pony.
I like the rug, but the shedding is outrageous. I completely clogged my vaccum cleaner because I didn't realize the bag had filled (so quickly) and the particles had backed up and clogged the hose. I've now filled 2 vacuum cleaner bags in about 2 weeks. I vacuum it daily, but it's still shedding. I'm wondering what will be left of the rug when it finally stops.

the rug was ordered 11pm and arrived just over 48 hours later! The sad news is the color. It just doesn't match my new wall paint and fabric. The picture has more gold tones but instead, there is more beige/brown. Blue is very light and more dominating than expected. Some may like the lighter shade. Overall quality is excellent. Shipping package is great shape. No smell, didn't see much fuzz for wool. So within 20 minutes we had it packaged up and ready to return. I called customer service and they were AWESOME! Please read fine print to make sure product can be returned.

Carpet was delivered well before we expected it. We have experienced absolutely NO shedding thus far; don't know why others have had this. Carpet is quite plush considering the cost (when compared to the other name brand carpets we have) and we are enjoying the vibrant colors and look of it. Thoroughly satisfied.
