Love, love, love this rug. Its perfect for my living room. The quality is great. It's thick and so far I have not noticed any fuzz coming off the rug so i don't think it will shed much. The colors are definitely different to the picture posted but I don't mind at all. The yellows in the picture are more soft greens in real life but it is still very neutral and will go with almost anything. This rug was definitely worth the price!Read More
This is the second rug I have gotten thru Overstock and once again, I am amazed at the quality. The colors are not as pictured. The background is ivory with lots of greenish beige. The accent colors are yellow and deep red. It looks wonderful with pretty much any color I can put with it.Read More
I first bought this rug for a large dining room. Then, after seeing its quality, I bought another one for the entryway. Since the rugs are wool, they do shed - although not nearly as much as most, new wool rugs. The colors are softer and more muted that I expected and not quite as vivid as the photos depict - which was fine with me. On the other hand, the colors are very elegant in the right lighting. All in all, I feel like these rugs offer both great value and long-term durability for the money. On the other hand, if 'look' and/or price are all that matters to you, then I suggest going with a synthetic rug.Read More
Love the rug, it is plush with muted beige and green colors. It fits our dining room perfectly. Very pleased. The red gives it a little pop of color. The other reviewers were right on here!Read More
The rug is beautiful, thick, and heavy. You will need a couple of friends to help you get the larger sizes in place. I am so happy with the neutral color and it made a beautiful dining room out of a very ordinary one. You will not be sorry you bought this rug!Read More
First let me say that I am an ASID, IIDA residential interior designer. The colors of this rug are very different than the image here shows. The image shows saturated (bright, true) colors. In reality this rug's colors are much more unsaturated (muted, grayed). I would describe the "red" as rust, and describe the rest of the overall background colors as being in the sage, maize and green-beige family. There is no brown in this rug, although it would work well with greenish-browns and greenish-grays. The rug is indeed 100% wool, and the nap does measure about 1/2" H. But the warp is only 12 threads per inch and the weft is only 14 threads per inch, which is a pretty loose weave. As such, it is much more casual than what I expected it to be based on the image shown. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as it could work well in a family room. But IMHO, it would not work well in a more formal living or dining room.Read More
I have red mahogany woodwork and oak floors. My sofa is a rusty coral color. This rug is perfect for us color-wise. Just enough of the same rusty coral color as my sofa to bring the room together and to give the rug pattern some dimension. Other colors are gold, soft sage and tan...soft, easy to decorate around, just what I was expecting from the photo. Rug doesn't smell like some do with the glued-on backing. The pile is substantial for the price point. Here is my one complaint....when we walk on the rug without shoes, we find hard pebble-sized nodules among the fibers. Closer inspection shows hard white chunks of dried material attached to the fibers. I'm thinking it's defective application of the material used to fuse the rug to the fiber backing. They are easily harvested by hand, but you do need to get down on the floor with a knife to manually detach them from the backing. If it wasn't so close to Christmas, I would have shipped it back, but keeping it because it looks great. I will just keep harvesting for now! I would consider buying a slightly smaller version for my dining room if I could receive reassurance that there were no pebbles attached.Read More
I have waited about a year to write this review b/c I wanted to see how the rug held up. The answer? Very well. Note: no dogs or cats or small children, but lots of board game-playing adults and teens have been on the rug. I was concerned about the "green" color that some reviewers spoke of in the rug b/c the room in which I was putting the rug is warm-toned with rich gold, red, and brown tones. The green is more of a very light grey with a slight undertone or hint of green in it and is not noticeable (probably due to my color scheme in the room). The red in the carpet does "pop" as another reviewer stated (a deep red - not lipstick red) and I have had so many compliments on the rug. As for shedding, yes, the first few months, I could vacuum it every day and take out lots of fuzz. After one year's use, that has greatly diminished, although I can still get some fuzz out of it. The one thing I have noticed is that I need to sweep the hardword floor more often. Because the flooring is a dark cherry, the lint from the rug does tend to "dust" my floor more often, but in fairness, I have to sweep the floor every day anyway b/c the dark wood shows everything. There were a couple of small areas on the rug where the fibers kind of "popped up" like loose threads at about the 3-6 month range. Although that concerned me, I cut those off with scissors and I have not had any "repeat offenders" and no more threads have done that. The rug is thick and durable, but again, please note that while I have a lot of foot traffic on my rug, we have no small children and no shoes are allowed in the house. You will have to decide how that affects your decision. Despite my concerns with purchasing such an expensive rug (in my pocketbook) off the internet, I am so glad that I did!Read More
Listen up readers! I just received my rug 3 days ago and couldn't wait to rip the packaging off! I agree with other comments about the mustard tone that comes across in the photo, it is NOT as it seems! I am so pleased with the coloring throughout this rug. The majority of the color is very neutral and has just the right amount of muted accent colors in just the right places. This rug is in our dining room which has our dining table which seats 8 centered on it. When the chairs are pulled out, they are all still on the rug. As you can well imagine, the 9x12 is very heavy and comes folded up. It took 2 of us to get it into place. It has a nice backing to it but I still recommend an underlay. This rug has a nice feel under foot. Just love this!Read More
This rug excceded my expectations. The color is lighter than the picture but works well and looks beautiful on my hardwood floors. Very little shedding and layed flat right away.Read More

Best Duvet Covers for Each Season
For those who use duvet blankets year-round, duvet covers allow you to change patterns and color to match every season. Along with the decor of the bedroom, a duvet cover may enhance the ambiance of the entire room or supply it with rich colors and textures for the ultimate comfort factor. If you purchased an expensive duvet, covering it throughout the year will keep it in good shape and allow you to wash it without compromising the batting. Look below to learn the best duvet covers for each season. Spring: Once the evenings start warming up, lighter fabrics like satin provide sheen and style to any bedroom. Satin duvet covers are most often comprised of fabrics like nylon, rayon or silk to provide durability as well as comfort. For spring, lighter colors, including pastels or variations of cream and beige, brighten the room. Summer: During warm summer nights, cotton duvets are one of the most common fabric choices. Light and airy, cotton is also easy to clean and comes in virtually every color and pattern. For the summer season, try a white duvet cover, which will make the room appear more open and spacious. A cotton blend that contains polyester is also an ideal choice for summer, because it is soft, requires simple washing and does not wrinkle. Fall: For the fall season, a duvet cover that is warm enough for intermittent chilly nights is an ideal choice. Microsuede duvet covers offer a soft feel to bedding and come in a variety of colors. This material is easy to care for and machine washable. For fall, choose earthy colors like beige, brown, dark green or burgundy for a seasonal look. Winter: A luxurious duvet cover is a favorite option for warmth during the winter months. Velvet is a soft fabric that comes in a variety of rich colors and provides plenty of insulation for cold nights. The luxurious texture looks good in any style of room decor. For winter months, choose deep, rich colors like burgundy, plum, forest green or chocolate to enhance the room. View All Duvet Covers Back to Guides Directory View All Duvet Covers
