This is, overall, a great rug. It's nice and thick with a beautiful design. And although most of the colors are beautiful, there are a couple of pieces of pink in the mix. They may look a little like beige or taupe in the photo, but the color is actually more like a dirty pink. Also, the pink spots are in locations that make it hard to hide (middle of the rug). I kept it, though, because we're using it in a family room, where the color scheme isn't so crucial. But if I had ordered it for my living room, I probably would have sent it back.
We purchased this rug for our small office...wanted something contemporary. We love it, except that it sheds so much!! Also, we didn't know that the rug had light pink colors in it....not our thing but it's just in the office and the desk can cover that area!
I received the rug last evening and decided to wait until morning to open the packaging. Upon opening it, I noticed that there are 6 small black spots throughout the rug. Some are on light areas and very noticeable. i checked to see if it was actually the threat or a spot and they are spots. Will be returning it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Rather dull. Not as bibrant as the photo and definitely not what you's expect from the description but overall it could work.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I knew when I pruchased it that it would shed because it's wool.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not very close. Colors were not as descibed.
Starting with the bottom line, I would say that Overstock offered a quality constructed area rug for a good price with a shipping charge that couldn't be beat and for that I am appreciative. However, this isn't a rug I would buy again if given the chance to do it over. First of all, it has been shedding piles of wool for more than three weeks now. Second and more important the colors were just not what at all what I expected. The burgundy, as listed in the description, is definitely a mauve, the brown is taupe, and the cream and tan colors look more like a really dirty off white. There is nothing rich and vibrant about these colors they are instead, muted and drab. If you really like this design consider my solution, shoving more of it under the furniture and purchasing a large coffee table or ottoman to cover most of it up.
