I read through all the other reviews on this rug prior to ordering, so I understood that the color wasn't as shown. I LOVE it! It's perfect for my room. I would say the colors are: primary sage green and khaki. There are outlines of olive green and gold, but nothing that stands out too much. The red pops, but in a good way. I was worried that red would be the wrong tone, but I really think it would go with any red...brick, burgundy, barn red, etc. I needed a rug that wasn't too dark (would show pet hair), and not too light, showing spills. It needed to be busy but not overpowering. This rug fits the bill perfectly. Shipping was great. Ordered Tuesday night (late), and received the rug Friday morning. Wow...I would definately order again, and probably will soon.
I first bought the 12 x 15 for my bedroom. I like it so much that I've now bought the 6 x 9 for my entry, one for the living room, and one for the dining room. With an open floor plan, it's difficult to find rugs that don't clash. So, this rug is versatile and unassuming, but thick enough. It doesn't compete with the furniture or the art work. I'm getting runners next. The really good thing about this rug is that it comes in lots of sizes. Like all wool rugs, you'll have some shedding. Perfectly normal and the only time I haven't had shedding is with very, very expensive hand-knotted rugs. This is not an expensive rug, but looks like it. It's perfect if you have dogs or kids as nothing shows on it. Order it. You won't be disappointed.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I think the rug is more a gold color, not a light brown. The photo is pretty accurate.

This is the sixth rug of this type that I've bought so obviously I love the rugs. However, there is an inconsistency in colors amongst the different sizes. Though all the rugs have a similar palette of colors, some rugs look more gray/neutral, some look more gold, and some more beige. This rug looks very much like the picture but the 8x8 rug and the 2x4 rug that I bought have almost a blue gray background in the border. The detail in the design also varies from rug to rug, some designs look more detailed and distinct, and in others the design is coarser. I also bought the 3 x5, the 8" runner, and the 10" runner. These are closer in color to this rug though there is even a slight variance amongst them.

This is an awesomely beautiful rug! I bought one and loved it so much that I bought a second one. The quality is wonderful for the price - it's 100% wool! The colors are lovely. It is a light greenish, brown - the red others refer to I see as rust which is the color I was looking for. The colors are subtle but not dull. I have a dog who is a shedding machine but nothing shows on these rugs. The rug itself does shed but I have vacuumed the first one I bought a few times and the shedding is much less. Overall, one of the best purchases I have made from Overstock. Shipping was free and rug arrived ahead of schedule (within a few days).
I have looked for a rug like this for years. I read other reviews and decided to take a chance and I'm so glad I did. I have a green sectional sofa and dark wood floors, taupe walls. The softness of colors gives such a beautiful contrast. I have had the rug for the better part of a month and have had very little shedding. I still get a little heart flutter when I see it in my family room. I couldn't be happier. Thank you, overstocked.
I love the style of this rug and looked similar to the picture online. The only complaint is that it sheds A LOT but from my research on the Internet, it is to be expected from wool rugs. The first rug was coming apart after the first vacuum but overstock sent a replacement which came the next day. They also made it sooo easy to return the defective rug. I can't say better things about O's customer service :)
Love this rug. I bought the runner after buying the area rug. As per previous reviews, it does shed but after several vacuums it goes away. As per previous reviews, if buying multiple rugs make sure description (majesty) is the same. I caught this after the fact but Overstock fixed when shipment was at UPS. Overstock is great at customer service. I don't think there are to many business that show good customer service anymore. The rug is beautiful!

I purchased this rug 9 months ago for my high traffic family room. I have a very busy household of children and dogs and this rug has retained its original appearance very well. I am very happy with the quality of this rug and have been very happy with this purchase. As with most wool rugs, there is some shedding the first few months. I have dark wood floors and very light walls in my family room and the colors complimented very well.
I bought quite a few of these rugs for a small hotel. They're thick and good looking; they'll hide wear and tear. The colors are neutral - definitely less gold in tone than on my computer - more taupe. Overall, I think these are a great value and good quality for a hand tufted rug.
Very nice rug. The red color is alnost what used to be called an oxblood. There are subtle shades of green, gold ,and light beige. I am trying to play up the deep red by using it in the sofa pillows and with a table runner. This rug is growing on me.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Colors were more subtle. The rug grows on you. Takes a while to like it.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good Quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
I was disappointed to unroll this rug and see how light it was. I read all the reviews over and over and the remarks were very positive. I was expecting the border to be blue with other colors, but the border was actually the same color as the center of the rug. I kept it in my living room for a year, but just ordered another rug from Overstock. Very pleased with the new one.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color appeared darker with very distinct colors in it. The actual rug was so light, so pale and only if you were standing directly on it, could you see color.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The rug was of good quality, thick and nice.
I wish that there was 8'5 x 11 rug size The carpet does pill up but overall it looks great, we purchased 3 in this design 2 of this size one for the dining room and one for the living room + a long runner for down the hall way. The carpets really help complete the look we were after.
This rug was exactly what I hoped it would be- the colors were neutral but coordinated well with other furniture, and reminded me of a much higher priced brand. In anticipation of occasional spills from visiting grandchildren and/or pets, I was looking for a forgiving pattern, and two years away from purchase date, this has come through very well. It does tend to be a bit "sheddy", but then so are my furry friends. I would buy it again!
Ok. I've had this rug now for several months and am ready to rate it. First of all, it looks lovely on the floor and is very soft with subtle coloring and a lot of green and ivory; the design looks great. My biggest complaint for the first few weeks, as others have stated, was the smell. It's almost like a damp, musty smell coming from the rug. As time has passed, I find the shedding of the rug pretty extreme with fibers and fuzz being expelled daily and it's been difficult to keep this cleaned up since that would probably require daily vacuuming. i guess I'm still glad I purchased it as I didn't want to put down something real pricey due to having a couple of cats; I didn't know whether or not they would scratch at this rug, but thankfully, they have not. If you can put up with the shedding, then go for it.....it does look great!
Rug exceeded my expectations. It looks like a much more expensive rug seen in some of the catalogs. I have not had the shedding problem mentioned by others, and the background colors are a greenish taupe beige which is perfect in the living room.
