The colors are just as described; however, NOT mentioned in the fact that the rug is nearly an inch and a half thick, and so tightly woven you can't work your fingers through to the backing! AND the pattern is actually handcut, heavy-duty, 1/4" ribbon that has been pulled through the carpet and stands above the regular pile by 1/2" or so. This gives unbelievable depth and shine to the pattern. I bought the 3.5 x 5.5' version. It's easily worth $500 or more in any fine floorcovering store! I buy a LOT of things through Overstock, and have never been disappointed! This purchase was no exception!!!!
I really liked the look fo this rug. The colors are great and fairly close to how they appear online. I was little disappointed that the bursts are made not of wool, but some sort of shiny, ribbon-looking yarn, and they are longer then the rest of the rug. It provides some texture, but the burst yarns look a little cheap. We decided to keep it anyway, as we like the overall look. I originally ordered a size too big by accident and had to return it and order a smaller one. As it was my first time ordering on Overstock.com I was unsure about the customer service. I was very pleased with how helpful the agent was on the phone, and pleased overall with the customer service. I rated it 3 stars but would really like to give it 3 1/2.
This rug is great quality, it is very plush and feels great on your feet. It is much more textured than I realized...the flower/starbursts are made of a different type and length of wool which gives it a very unique appearance. The colors are perfect in my home office, and it's currently my dog's napping spot of choice :)
Really love this rug. The bursts are a different material than the base of the rug which makes the bursts stand out. I ordered a runner and am returning it, only because it's way too big for the spot I ordered it for. I exchanged for a square size which will go in my dining room.
This rug is beautiful! It is plush and has a lot of different textures which makes it an art piece in my mind. I have it in the kitchen so there is no furniture siting on it to hide the design which is very unique and I get a lot of compliments on it.
This rug is very different in a cool way... the starbursts are a ribbon material; which is weird on the feet, but not bad. I'm not sure about using a regular vacuum on it, and how the starbursts will hold up to this... SO... I've been using the handheld on it.
This was such a disappointment. Probably the cheapest looking rug I have ever seen. I fell in love with the online pictures and ordered two. Now I had to pay to return. Other sites are better as they cover return expenses. Rugs are very tricky, colors on monitors never depict true colors. Always be ready for a surprise....in this case not a good one.
This great find is so deceiving in the online photo. I purchased this for the lobby of my office. Unbeknownst to me the starburst in the rug is actually textured or a 3-D appearance. This rug has received the most compliments of my whole office remodel. I even had a customer ask is she could take her shoes off and walk on it!!
I read the other reviews....especially the notes of other reviewers re the sun bursts are raised ribbon woven in the wool rug. That description is exactly correct. I put the rug in my beach house. It was the perfect fit, color and look. Excellent value too. I have to wait to see how the rug wears, but it looks great now.
Just to let you know the flowers are raised quite a bit, so if you have a cat, this is not for you! Also, it takes a heavy book to flatten out the flowers so they are not domed.
