Like another reviewer said, this rug is primarily ivory, not blue. It's a beautiful rug but be prepared for ivory with blue gray accent, not navy blue with ivory accent. I had high hopes for it but mine went back. I rated it good because it's a nice rug for the price but it's not what they description says it is. The pictures are also deceptive-the ivory design is thicker and more prominent.
This beautiful rug is very cushy, is beautiful under our dining room table, and was a great price. One surprise: the size of the design. Each medallion is about 14" in diameter. This is oK for us, because much of it is under the table, but it might be too bold a pattern in the middle of a room. I'd be happy to provide a photo that shows it in the room, if Overstock wants to add it.
As always, the shipping time frame with overstock was expedient. I ordered two runner sized rugs, and the look of the two differed greatly from one to the other. One is clearly thicker, with much more of the white coloring, while the other is more in keeping with the picture posted on the site. Placed them both on dark hardwood, and unfortunately they shed like wet, mangy dogs! Vacuumed continuously (daily)for the first four weeks without let up. Hopefully the shedding will die down soon.
The image on site reads primarily navy blue. However, since the ivory portions of the rug are raised above the navy, I could only really see the navy when standing on the rug. The quality is excellent; I simply want a primarily blue rug as opposed to this, which looks like an ivory rug with blue accents.

Not only did I receive these before they were promised (thank you!), I've them to be of very high quality. I ordered the 3'x5' and the 2.6'x12'. As for the issue of the blue/cream ratio, I will say that the wider the rug, the more prominent the "blue" seems to be (even though the pattern is identical between sizes) so if you are interested in the smaller sizes, it will appear to be more cream than blue. Also, the cream detail is a lot thicker/wider than represented in the picture. I am very happy with my purchase.
I am not one to write reviews but for this one I felt like I needed to. I was ready to cancel this order after reading some of the reviews on this & I am sooooo happy I didn't! Let me say that I have worked in design & love decorating and I'm really picky. With that being said...... First off, the rug is beautiful, heavy and expensive looking. I ordered an 8x10 and it is exactly as pictured. It is navy (not a dark navy, but navy none the less). It is absolutely NOT more cream with touches of blue as some were complaining about. And the cream parts are not way higher than the navy. So if you like the rug in the picture and that's what you want, you'll love it!
As others have said, the color is more of a blue/gray not navy. However, some people mentioned that the rug appears more ivory - I disagree. The blue color is noticeable; perhaps more so in larger sizes. I purchased an 8x10 . I am very pleased with the quality and look. It does shed significantly, however it's wool and is to be expected. I found the same rug at other retailers at a significantly higher cost. Overstock's price and delivery time were great. I did a lot of researching and shopping around and overall I'm very pleased with this choice.
This is a beautiful, rich, expensive looking rug that I saw online at another retailer for much, much more money. I read the reviews that said it was more ivory than blue and I do not see it. It looks like a navy rug with a cream design. It is a strong, signature piece, so your furnishings will have to compliment it not compete with it. I am VERY HAPPY with this purchase!
I had been shopping for over a month for the right rug - I am super happy with the quality and color of the rug. The blue is a bit brighter than appears but allows for a sharp, clean contrast with the cream - love it!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Brighter blue than in picture

Tho rug is beautiful, and soft! Softness was a concern because little knees would be crawling in it and it has exceed my expectations in that arena! The colors are just a pretty as they are on line as well. I do have 1 issue with this rug that I didn't consider before ... It sheds fibers, little white fibers all over everything to include my little guys clothes/knees/hands. I have vacuumed this rug about 20 times already as well! So if this is for walking on then you should definitely do it, if it's for a little ones play area you might want to reconsider.
I absolutely love this rug. Just like everyone said it's very expensive looking. It reminds me of something from Anthropologie. Don't hesitate to get it. My cats did not scratch at it either. YAY LOVE it LOVE it LOVE it I wish I could put one it every room but that would be stupid. It's been since August and I love it even more and it has maintained nicely.
Received this rug very quickly. It is very heavy, and looks exactly as I expected. There is a small flaw on the ivory border-several yarn pieces are black and when combined they appear in the shape of a 3" black line. The rug could probably be returned because of this flaw, but I have decided that it is not prominent and not worth the trouble of returning. Also, the wool sheds quite a bit. Regardless of these issues, I am glad that I bought it because it is truly a beautiful rug and a good value.
I ordered this rug based on the reviews about its quality. It is incredible, especially for the price. Be prepared for the rug to be the show piece of the room; even under a large dining table, this rug commands attention. And when you walk on it, the plushness invites you to take a nap on it (it is the new favorite spot for the cats). So...the color. It is 2 colors--primarily ivory due to the higher pile of those threads, but has a base of blue. Overstock had a picture of it from an oblique angle--look for that picture, because when you live with this rug, you will see it from that angle, and not looking straight down on it. The oblique angle shows how the ivory becomes dominant. Because my dining room is a pass through type room, this rug will get a lot of floor traffic (it is not just under the dining table), which was a concern. I immediately treated it with a scotchguard, and so far the ivory is staying clean. It does shed, but only about 1/4th as much as my prior jute rug, so I am happy to vacuum that amount. Bottom line--I LOVE this rug; I think it is the best online purchase I have made out of 100+ such purchases.
I had anticipated the color based on other reviews and wanted something lighter than navy (it is more of a blue/grey). Buyer BEWARE - the 9' x 12' rug is not 9' x 12' it is significantly smaller - 8'8" x 11'8" and when I complained to Overstock that I didn't get the size I ordered, I was told rug sizes are "approximate." 4" on each dimension is the difference between my dining room chairs staying on the rug or going off when pushed in and out. Interesting because the 8"9" diameter round rug I ordered at the same time IS 8'9" in diameter as described. It is a beautiful, plush, well made rug but it is NOT the size I ordered or wanted and it looks like I am out of luck unless I want to pay a fortune for return shipping
This rug comes off way more ivory than shows in the picture. The pattern is modern and lots of dimension ( highs and lows in the carpet). I think it is beautiful, so happy I purchased. The blue is a French blue, not too light and not too navy. It is made of wool so sheds a bit, but that is the nature of new rugs. I love it!
My rug was delivered today and I'm thrilled. I'm so glad I read all the reviews 1st so I knew what to expect. The picture does not quite accurately reflect the true contrast. There is more cream color that navy but that is what I was looking for. It's absolutely exquisite and I'm so pleased I bought it. The quality is excellent and nice to walk barefoot on. Definitely a good product.
