I don't love writing reviews because I think everyone has their own opinion and I would never want to dissuade someone from something they might love. BUT, this isn't opinion it's fact, and I so wish I'd seen a review like this before I spent my money on this. So here it is... I have purchased dozens of rugs over the years, from fairly high end to what I call "expendable" (so low cost it's OK if kids do their thing on them). This is by far THE WORST RUG I have ever bought. It's nice enough looking (yes the color and pattern are very much like you see on your screen), but it has the most awful chemical smell and it sheds (and sheds and sheds and sheds and SHEDS). I cannot over exaggerate the smell or the shedding, and I'm confused that no one else has had these problems. The smell makes me physically ill if I'm too close to the rug for any length of time, I'm afraid of what it's doing to my toddler, and I now need to vacuum my hardwood floors at least three times a day to keep up with all the fibers floating around. I could quite literally make several skeins of carpet yarn with what's come off this thing. The only saving grace is that this was only a couple hundred bucks. I'm not rich, so that still stings, but at least it wasn't several hundred. Lesson learned: I will never ever in my life buy this brand again.
I REALLY wanted to love this rug and at first I did... However, after having the rug for only a few weeks, it's already showing signs of wear! All though I expect a rug to shed, I was never prepared for the tumbleweed that this rug would produce. I vacuum the rug daily, and every single time I have to empty my vacuum canister as it is completely full! Not to mention, I also have to vacuum my couches as they are constantly covered in the wool from the rug. Normally, I wouldn't write a review just for shedding, however, the rug now looks like a worn sweater with little round balls pilling everywhere! I usually LOVE Overstock so I am indeed disappointed by this experience.
We fill up our vacuum canister 2-3 times when we're cleaning this rug, but it's well worth it for the price and style. I'm very pleased with the quality. We've had it a year now, and we have noticed a significant decrease in the shedding. But the thickness and quality has remained intact. I am so pleased with this purchase!
Area rug is very nice and was delivered quickly. Rug is comfortable under foot and not overly thick. Blues are very pretty and soft leaning towards baby-blue, but the body of the rug is much more soft green/yellow than the gold depicted in the photo. Thankfully, we wanted something slightly less gold than the picture (truth be known) so we were happy with the color in the end.
This is a beautiful, makes my bedroom feel very comfortable. Good value for the size. The color was much duller yellow then it appeared on the site. In the picture it looks more golden but in reality it is much more of a dull yellow. Really good quality!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Its much more yellow and the blues are not as prominent
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great thick wool
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
I ordered this rug because I loved the design and the colors. It had great reviews and that greatly helped me decide to purchase. This is a great looking rug, the quality is good and I got 15% off! The colors are muted, the background is a soft gold with accent colors of tans, cream and green leaves..again very muted green. The medallion is a pretty blue. Love it! The only negative is the odor, it was pretty bad for a few days.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Close, however on my screen I could only see gold with a blue medallion, in person there is muted green and tans
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate except for the amount of tan color in the rug
This is a lovely rug, beautiful design and the price for the size was a deal. Now for the but...2 years later this rug still sheds endlessly. It's shedding fluff creates enormous dustballs and fills one entire vacuum cleaner bag per vacuum. I thought over time it would diminish . Next time I'd not be so thrifty and invest in a higher quality piece.
This rug is truly beautiful! I admit that I was very nervous about ordering an area rug online. I am so happy that I did! Gorgeous!!! The colors shown online, gold and light blue, are absolutely what you get, and the price is amazingly low compared to any other retailer. I would also add that it is very soft, and I haven't had any issues with "fuzz". If you have hardwood floors, be sure to get a rug pad so it doesn't slip and slide. Go ahead, place your order. You won't be sorry!
I was VERY skeptical buying a rug online. I am very happy with it. It's plush and the colors are very similar to the picture although perhaps not as muted. The blue is a little brighter but lovely. It smelled a little like chemicals for the first few hours but that went away quickly. Compared to other rugs I saw in person at nice rug stores I feel like we got an amazing deal. I've ordered 4 other rugs from Overstock.
Wonderful warm yellow gold color and light robin egg's blue. My one complaint is that this carpet sheds and sheds and sheds. It is tapering off after 3 weeks, but we have balls of wool daily that must be picked up. Not sure if it is the yarns that are not tightly attached or what. Some wrinkles that seem to be coming out now that it is unrolled.
