The colors of the actual rug are nothing like the photo online. The "red" is a dark brownish maroon. The "blue" in the online photo was a pretty medium teal color. The blue in the rug is actually a dark slate blue. I expected a possible slight color difference but nothing this dramatic and ugly. The colors are murky and dark . The rug is made by a good company "Safaih" and I have another rug by this company. I have learned a difficult lesson and will never buy a large item online again. I have been happy with my several other Overstock purchases but the hassle and high postal cost of trying to return a large rug is not worth the inconvenience. I am not a complainer and this had to really bother me for me to write this negative review.
when i unrolled this rug i assumed i'd been sent the wrong one because it looked nothing like what i thought i had ordered. so i opened up my laptop and pulled up my order. the *pattern* is spot on. the color is absolutely nothing like the picture. this is a lightish blue rug with a blood-red border and black 2" edging around the perimeter. if i had seen it i wouldn't have chosen it. we were looking for a darkish rug with blue and red accents. we got a blue rug that looks like it's in a dark frame. now, it's not hideous. it works where we've put it -- which is in our entry way. i walk on it maybe a dozen or more times a day. it feels great underfoot: plush and thick (and we're note currently using a pad). it does shed, but then again i have two kids and a dog and our boot trays are on the rug, so we need to vacuum regularly anyway. we knew we were taking a risk with this rug, not only because of the other reviews but because this is the fourth safavieh rug we've purchased from O. one of those was perfect; one was abysmal and i sent it back the same hour; one was fine and we still use it in the dining room, four years later. i was hoping this rug would go in the perfect category. oh well. it's a great rug for the price, and we can make it work. if you want blue and red i think you will love this rug. if you want anything else, keep looking.
I am very pleased with the heritage traditional blue/red rug (6' X 9'). The blue in the rug is a bit lighter then I expected yet it is a nice color. I was very surprised as to how quickly the rug arrived. I ordered it on a Sunday and it was at my door by Tuesday.
rug colors are blue-grey and maroon. Not the best feeling wool - I needed to check the label to confirm that it actually was wool. The good news is that the rug is from Safavieh, who makes nice quality rugs. The bad news is that the other Safavieh rugs I bought on Overstock were better quality and looked nicer.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? maroon and blue-grey, not red and blue
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. just ok-rug label says wool, but I needed to check the label tp see if it was true
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? ok
This rug is beautiful. The colors are vivid but not too bright. It looks like a very expensive rug. It had a Safavieh sticker on the back, which sells good quality rugs. The feel is smooth yet sturdy. It looks and feels like something of substance. Not like a department store rug for the same price.
I was really excited to get the rug as the pattern shown is quite lovely. I wish that I could submit a photo to show how different the colors are. The pattern is the same, but the problem is that it is lacking the detail in the center of the rug with both pattern and color. You can follow the pattern when comparing, but you can see where the final deep brown, rust, and orange tones and pattern are completely missing. I've always heard that the products are seconds, but now I know that is always a possibility. The other side is that it is decent in its quality although I see that the pile is crushing a bit in spite of buying the durable hard surface carpet pad for it. I am keeping the rug because it was cheap and for a rental house. I also contacted Overstock to give them a chance to take the picture off as it is really misleading, but I see after a few weeks it is still here. So, just be forewarned that while some of the pattern and color (of which is pretty true to the picture) is there, most of what makes this rug appealing is not.
