How much does this weigh?
I read all of the reviews before ordering this rug. I wanted a rug to go with my gray themed living room. Many people said the rug was darker and more serious. I disagree. Mine is a very light gray, almost bluish in some light. I was hoping for the darker color. Oh well. One thing that was right from the reviews is the shedding! so annoying. I find rug balls everywhere. I can only hope it doesn't last for years like rugs i've had in the past. On another note: I have to praise Overstock for their customer service. I ordered this rug and it got lost. They quickly had another rug ordered and sent within a few days. Fixed the problem and made up by giving me a club O membership and credit for free. This company is great!!...

I ordered this rug in a round size first and liked it so much that I ordered this size a year later! I love these rugs. They are beautiful and hold up well to heavy traffic. I have one in my entry and one in my family room! They do shed for a while, but not too long. The colors are muted and very elegant! I have one over tile and one over wood and don't feel the need to use a rug pad on either. They stay in place. I get compliments all the time on my rugs! I love shopping at Overstock!Read More
I bought rug after reading the reviews and yes, it was exactly as I pictured it to be. The blue is a grey or slate blue with a beige border, edged in brown/coffee. The border is NOT gold. The rug has brick red, yellow, gold and many shades of green in the patterns. It works great with our decor and is an EXCELLENT value for the price. Yea for Overstock!Read More
This rug sheds horribly. I kept thinking it would stop after a while, but it continually sheds. This rug is very poor quality. Do not buy!Read More
I am very happy with my area rug. It really made a huge difference in our dining room. No regrets buying it.Read More
The color is drastically different than it appears in the picture. In the picture, it looks bright and light. In reality, the rug is quite dark and much more serious. If I didn't have a million things on my plate right now, I would return it, but much too busy to be concerned about color coordinating my living room. Also, quite a bit of shedding initially, filled up 2 vacuum bags in teh first two weeks. Shedding is starting to dissiplateRead More
I like the rug a lot. It seemed more pastel on my computer screen, however the rug is really a medium tone. It did have a few areas where the die did not completely take and I would have called to return it if those areas were not covered by my coffee table. And from other experiences with o.co I do not think that would have been an issue at all. I do really like it and I think it adds a lot to my room. It does shed a lot! But I did expect some shedding and the shedding is getting better as the weeks go by.Read More
Beautiful rug. Very, Very Good quality. Shipped very fast. Color is not nearly as muted as shown on computer, but I was aware of that because of other reviews. Very pleased.Read More
