It makes a nice statement in my livingroom. It is holding up well with three kids and a dog. The bursts make for a nice texture when you are walking on it and I haven't had any problems with them being loose or coming out like other people have commented. The short fibers from the carpet itself shed a little, but nothing out of the ordinary. Overall a great value for your money. I would definately buy another one.
Ordered on Saturday, arrived on Wednesday! I am incredibly happy with this rug.I was concerned about quality, I am very picky with rugs and don't like the non-tactile shopping experience, but overstock delivered with a great quality rug. Perfect plushness, with raised knotted sunbursts.Beware all, I saw the picture and I picked the rug, but the pattern was still a shock when I rolled it out. Maybe the sunbursts seemed bigger in real life, but in a good way in the end, definitely pushed the room to the modern side.The background colour is very creamy though, so you have to be ready and want to buy a Cream rug first, then a couple of bold sunbursts thrown in.
I love this rug! It is a huge statement piece for a room. It needs to be seen ... so not the best idea to put a dining set or other piece of furniture on top of it. The starbursts are textural and raised and shimmery! Just a lovely piece. The background is more beige than the cream or gold in the picture. Very contemporary piece if that is what you seek :-)
I loved this rug when I first saw it at our Home Decorators store but it was outside of my budget. I was skeptical when I found it on Overstock. This ended up being the same exact product but much more reasonably priced! This is neutral but "fun" and unique. I love the 3D design.

We are enjoying the rug. The color is lighter than pictured, but I would describe as "beige" as stated in the title. Nice quality. We have not yet vacuumed, but will definitely turn off the brush. I would think the bursts would pull out easily.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The background is lighter and the burst have less golden color than in the picture. I would say I expected a more golden tone.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Appears to be very nice. The burst fabric has fallen out after light traffic and few dining room occasions.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate, the color was a little off.
drop dead gorgeous, unusual fun rug - love it. however not using it because i got two ragdoll cats after the purchase. the cats or any animal is going to enjoy scratching and chewing on the individual pile. kids have left home and so we could do whatever we wanted but then it was so quiet at home we got the cats, which are a hoot, and a coocoo clock.

It's a beautiful rug that looks great on a hardwood floor. The background is neutral cream color with brown and beige/gold strings. It does shed but I was expecting it. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase.

We ordered this rug for our formal dining room. Like other reviewers have said the dark brown is lighter in person but still very pretty. This rug looks beautiful in our room and we could not be more pleased. I would worry about the bursts coming unravelled if you intend to vacuum the rug a lot because of how they stick out of the rug. Since we won't be walking on the rug much because it is under our table I don't think it will be an issue for us. We are very pleased with how this completed our room and it goes well with the orange walls. Overall it is a great deal.

The appearance is nice and overall it feels comfortable on the feet. The colors are much lighter than the photo. My only real concern is that the material on the burst patterns can come out. I don't see how I can manage to vacuum this rug without it pulling out the pieces that make up the burst pattern.
I agree with the previous reviews that the rug sheds a lot in the beginning, but not nearly as much as I had expected. It's very plush and comfortable to stand on. We're using it as a rug under our eat-in kitchen area and it's great! Overall we're happy with our purchase. As far as the colors, as show in the picture, the bursts are more of a light taupe color and not gold and the overall background is a beige color...a little lighter than pictured.
I hunted all over for a 8' square rug upon which to place my baby grand piano. When I couldn't find anything in regular stores, my daughter-in-law suggested I try Overstock.com. I was amazed at the large selection from which I chose the SOHO Burst Beige Wool rug. I ordered it on a Wednesday and it arrived the following Monday. It is a very beautiful rug, thick and "rich" looking. I also ordered a rug pad so the whole rug ensemble looks thick and substantial. Although I am very satisfied, I will comment that the colors as shown are not quite true. My rug has a cream background (as shown) but the starbursts are more of a milk chocolate brown rather than a dark chocolate as shown in the web photos. It works for me this way, so am not disappointed. A super nice product, in a very hard to find size. I am very happy.
We all love this rug. I was worried about the "gold" color being an ugly shade, but it is beautiful. We as well had major shedding with this rug. It was especially bad because of our baby crawling on it and then carrying it all over the house. But the shedding has calmed down quite a bit, and we would buy it again even though it sheds. The rug is incredibly soft including the design. Very nice quality and very complimentary to our living room. It has received lots of compliments.
We bought this rug for our dining room. It looks great the quality is top notch. The bursts are more a lot bigger in person but it looks great. We were afraid when we first saw how much more defined they are because we were afraid that the chairs would be hard to move on them, but it isn't an issue at all. A great rug at the price of much lower quality rugs. I'll never shop for rugs anywhere else.
Great rug--excellent in all areas: thick, plush, color, etc. Love the very contemporary style. Sunbursts are strong design feature that literally pop out. We like how funky they are, but if you are conservative, you may want to think carefully before purchase. Occassionally some of the ribbon-like yarn in the starbursts come out, but a certain amount of loose yarn is expected to come up when a rug is initially laid out and vaccuumed. The 8' square dimension can difficult to find, but overstock has plenty to choose from. Fast shipping: ordered Tuesday morning, delivered Wednesday afternoon. My husband and I are very happy...this is the second rug we ordered from overstock, and once again, we are very pleased. We have already referred several friends to the website to look at similar rugs.
The appearance and quality of this rug are good, but I have to warn you. The flower "bursts" are much bolder than they appear to be in the picture. They definitely stand out and make a statement. I like it, but if you're looking for something more subtle, this isn't the rug for you.
