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.

I love the pattern and mix of weaves in this rug. It's an interesting contemporary design, with almost irridescent ribbon-like stitching forming the sunburst patterns. It's thick and soft under foot and cleans up easily. Blues can be difficult to match, but this blue is pale enough to complement other tones...I'm using it with teal and it looks lovely.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? What looks like yellow in the photo is really more beige/sand colored in actuality.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Heavy smooth weave appears to be durable. Looks fragile, but holds up well to vacuuming.

First, I LOVE this rug. However, it is missing the yellow in the middle of the lightest "sunburst". In the picture you see yellow in the middle (like the sun) and in person it's just a light cream color. The rug base is a blue-ish gray and the sun bursts are cream, light beige & medium brown and are a shag type--so they stand up over the flat gray/blue flat rug. It's REALLY cool & different. Even though it's missing the yellows, it's still a beautiful rug. I LOVE IT!!!
