We purchased this same rug 2 1/2years ago from Overstock and loved it. It was thick and heavy and shed minimally when new. The colors were as pictured: Ivory, Black, Gold, with accents of cranberry red and teal blue. It was beautiful and excellent quality. But after 2 1/2 years of heavy foot and dog traffic, it was showing wear. Because we liked it so much, we reordered the same rug last August. But we decided to wait until the holidays to put it down, so we stored it without opening it. This was our mistake, but we assumed it would be the same colors/quality as our previous rug. (The brand, style, and color names are all the same). When we opened it in December, we were so disappointed to see that the colors were very different. There are no cranberry red accents - just a rusty oxblood color. And the teal blue accents are now a steel gray/blue color. Other than the beige background and black border, all of the colors are very brown and drab. And the new rug is much thinner and less plush than the previous rug. It is lighter in weight and moves around even with a rug pad which our previous rug never did. Overstock was willing to let us return it, but we did not have time to find another rug before the holidays (and had already donated the old one to Goodwill), so we kept it. It has now been one month, and the rug continues to shed fibers excessively. Just walking on it creates balls of fibers which roll onto the hardwood floor and under furniture. Every time we vacuum, we get a FULL canister of fibers - no exaggeration. This rug is definitely poor quality compared to previous versions. The 'new' colors may work for you. But if you ordered this rug before, just be aware that you will not be getting the same rug in terms of color or quality.
Great rug for the price. Nicely made, looks wonderful. I sure got my money's worth with this purchase.
