This is a beautiful, well made rug. However, I wish I had read a review stating that the colors are much darker than they read on a monitor. I viewed it on two monitors. The brown appears on screen as a dark taupe/golden brown, which would have worked with my decor. In reality, the brown is dark chocolate brown, a lovely shade, but not for me personally. I purchased this in the 2 x 3 as a test before ordering the 9'6 x13'6, and am so grateful that I did. If you want a dark rug, this is a great choice. Meanwhile, I will continue my search.
Thank goodness I read the reviews, or I might have thought this rug was predominately gold as the image shows. It's actually milk chocolate brown with a medium blue border. The accents are true red and soft green. It works well with many colors - looks great on my medium brown hardwood floor . I think the colors and pattern are very practical and will not show spots or stains. Great price too!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The image shows too much gold.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great Quality

Safavaiah blue and brown wool rugs do not look like the online photos, but they are lovely. Actual color is milk chocolate brown, sky blue, cream, and touches of green and wine. Thick pile, nice patterns, work very well in our 1915 bungalow, where our furniture is eclectic (dark wood floors and furniture, brown leather chairs and sofas, butterscotch walls with rust brown and copper and white trim) but with a nod to history. These rugs (we bought in two sizes, for our living area and adjoining dining area, as the house is open plan) were purchased to replace two other Safavaiah rugs we loved (Chelsea), but which kwere loop construction (our cats loved to pull the loops, sadly) and were light colored. Since we love to entertain and love red wine, the Chelsea rugs became hopelessly stained over four years. We bought these darker background rugs and love them. I changed out some sofa cushions and throws to tie in the blue and added a punch of orange for fun, and, voila!, perfect! Roomba cleans these easily, and we've already had a red wine spill, which cleaned up beautifully. Very happy with these rugs!
I've tried to find something worthy to say about this product but in the end it's just a loss on my part. The colors are not at all like what is shown but the real problem is the poor quality. The rug just keeps on shedding much more than it should and not just fibers, but small plugs. I had purchased a wool rug before on overstock.com and was very satisfied. But this one is nothing like the other. The low price hooked me but in the end I'll replace the rug and eat the cost.
The rug arrived very quickly. I was pleased. I was warned by Overstock.com that the color might not match the colors on my computer screen, which were golds, tan, orange with an accent of red and a smokey blue border. It did say that the rug was brown and blue in the description. I had two people look at the rug on their screen, it was definitely a beautiful orange color. I thought, oh well, maybe what they call brown, is actually a rusty orange. I sent for it. It came. It is dark brown and blue. Not ugly really, but not at all what I wanted. I did not send it back. I am so happy to have a rug, any rug, that I kept it. We are saving up, and will buy a rug someday that is what I want and sell the one we have. It is a good quality 100% wool rug and the price was low. So, I am pleased but not thrilled.
Great rug for the price - should hold up well - love the colors - wrinkles came out within 3 days - shipped and packaged in good fashion.

I have had this carpet a week. Each time I vacuum (needed daily) I have to dump my canister 2 times--if I continued vacuuming, I think it would continue until no wool was left. This is a nightmare....I think this is much worse than a little shedding. I have 4 other carpets from Overstock and they are all fine (all handtufted--not sure of the difference). I am going to see about returning it.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is terrible--looks good at first but is losing way to much just by vacuuming and walking on it.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate but not good quality
It wasn't easy to find an area rug large enough to go under our king size bed but this it perfect. It's large enough to under it while still allowing enough of the rug to show from under the bed and walk around the perimiter. Our bedroom is painted a wedgewood blue which is matched by the blue in the rug border. The golden brown color in the field of rug is great for hiding dirt and the occasional coffee spill. It is very thick and soft underfoot. I liked it so much I bought a smaller matching one for the sitting room.
