We initially ordered a 4 by 6, along with the 6 by 9. The 4 by 6 was perfect, however the 6 by 9 smelled like fish. We called overstock and they were happy to return the rug and send a new one to replace it. UPS picked up the rug, free of charge to us. We have just received our new 6 by 9 rug and it is perfect! The colors are a bit more muted than in the 4 by 6, but appear exactly as the picture on-line shows. Very beautiful.. and most importantly, NO smell this time! We love this rug and are so happy with the service at Overstock. Not sure what happened w/ first rug, but guessing it was packaged prior to completely drying (the dyes). Because the first one had silicone packets for drying enclosed in packaging, where the second one did not. The color of the backing to the rug is also different on the second rug. Very pleased... looks to be more expensive than price we paid.
Carpet arrived in 2 days- unfortunately pad took 3 more. What could be better than having a heavy and bulky item delivered to your home (nice UPS guy brought in for me) for $2.95 ?! I am using it in my kitchen- added attraction that the pattern helps hide the need for vacuuming. The carpet is well made and comfortable on bare feet. There is some fuzzy shedding but not an issue. The colors are more vibrant than pictured- bright brick, medium blue denim-ish and rich cream.
