I bought this product based on the many good reviews. I knew to expect a muted rug, with blues and grays . On a positive note, the rug arrived very quickly and shipping was very minimal. However, the rug did NOT look like the picture. I was not going to be too picky about the color varying, but the colors were very off, and what was very disappointing was the "pop" of reds. Where the rest of the tones were very muted, the reds stood out way too much and detracted from the beauty of the rug. They did not enhance the rug, but looked out of place. The pattern on the computer monitor was also not very visible when actually looking at it in person, which is why one of the other viewers probably thought it was a totally different rug. I thought of hiding it under our coffee table, but have decided to return it instead, and will probably pay a lot to ship. :(. I wish I had bought a smaller versian first to see it, then could have shipped that back more easily.

This rug is thick and provides a warm, welcoming touch to our den. It has quite a muted pattern so is the right thing if you want a rug that does not add much additional busyness to the the room. It has light brown/sand/tan shades, the only other color that stands out at all being small touches of wine or rust. I don't know a lot about the quality of rugs but this one looks like something that will wear well.
When I unrolled the carpet, I noticed that the color was much more muted than I had expected, as other reviewers had forewarned. But it definitely grew on me. The carpet is very plush and a welcome addition to our family room. The only problem is that it does seem to shed a lot. I've vacuumed quite frequently, but it doesn't seem to go away... I suppose only time will tell. I just don't like have wool bunnies stuck to my clothes.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes, but a little more muted
- How is the quality of the product? Okay -- it sheds a lot
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
I received this rug within days of ordering it, and it was exactly as pictured online. It is subtle and very attractive. I have it in an area that has both muted and more bold upholstered pieces, and it unites them perfectly. It also feels great underfoot, and does not shed after a couple of good vacuumings. Highly recommended, and I am a very picky buyer!!!
This rug is entitled "Light Brown/Beige Wool Rug" and the description lists the colors as brown, beige, gold, rust, ivory and olive. Imagine my surprise when I received a rug with LOTS of silvery gray in the border. I assumed that a mistake had been made in the dye lot and asked Overstock to send one that had been checked to confirm the correct colors. They did send another. And it looked identical to the first. This is a pretty rug but is not the warm shades shown in the picture nor the earth tones described in the copy. I returned both rugs. Expect beiges and grays.
I read the reviews for about a month and finally decided to order the rugs! I ordered an 8X10, 5x8 and 2x3 and all I can say is WOW!!! I love, love the look! They are so subtle but beautiful and perfect for my home. They are cushy and so pretty....i recommend them to everyone, infact, I am going to order the 8' x 2.3" as a runner! I really have been so impressed with "Overstock.com"!!!
Ordered my rug Tues evening and received it Monday. It's beautiful. The muted colors of green and gold and tan was what I expected, the rust/rose color is brighter and will match my accent color in my living room. It's very plush and soft, it's not as thick as another expensive wool rug I have but wonderful for the value. I've seen people retuning their wool rugs because of "shedding". I'm not worried about the shedding because that's what wool rugs generally will do. So far I haven't seen too much. Now I plan to order a couple of other sizes for the same room. Super value!
Ordered on Wednesday evening, arrived on Monday. Colors and design are just as pictured and it's really a great looking rug. Will go with any decor. VERY soft too. Although it's not QUITE 5 X8 (4 ft 10 inches by 7 feet 10 inches) makes no difference to me but if the exact size of 5 X 8 is of the utmost importance to you, keep this in mind. There is also not a strong "new rug smell" which I am thrilled about. Highly recommend this rug I am 100% satisfied.
For the price, the quality and plushness of this rug is very nice. I bought the rug and two matching runners. However, the color of the rug, although very nice, is a light green (I'd call it sage) and not anywhere near beige or light brown in terms of its primary coloring. So unfortunately, the color didn't match with our home decor and looked especially muted and bland on our lightly colored pine floors. We are returning these but are having a hard time finding the same size rug and matching runners that come close to the value and quality of these.
I first bought the 10 ft by 2.3 ft runner. I found it to be a very good value for a wool Persian look rug, so I then ordered the 5 x 8 one from the same group. It is also very pleasing for the price. The colors on the monitor are very close to being accurate. There is a little more red than shows up on screen, but it is muted and not offensive. Like other wool rugs, it does shed but not more than to be expected. I would definitely order it again.
