  • Beautiful piece

    New floors need a new rug. This was the right size at the right price. Colors are soft yet strong. The burst design cleverly burst from the rug to give a nice sense of texture without being shaggy. Quick and careful delivery. Very pleased with this purchase.

  • Pretty, But Pulls!

    I have NEVER seen a rug shed so much. Maybe this is normal of wool rugs, but we can't even lay on the rug without collecting a quarter inch of fuzz on our clothing. It's insane, the piles of shedded wool that come off this thing. The bursts also pull like crazy. Long, fuzzy threads just come apart, and I'm worried that the design will strip the rug in a few years. The feel is plush and luxurious, but this is by no means a low-maintenance rug. Expect to vacuum every other day.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? A little duller but the bursts are sparklier.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Decent
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
  • Perfect for the space.

    The rug arrived in just a few days and was shipped well packaged. I wanted a rug in the blue/grey color family and I ordered this rug based on the color description of some of the other reviewers. The background is the blue/grey I expected. The rug is shedding some right now , but that is to be expected with a wool rug. I have purchased very expensove wool rugs in the past and their charaqcter is to shed. This does not diminish the look of the rug. I am pleased.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color stated was teal. I would describe the color of the background to be blue/grey. This is also stated in some of the other reviews I read.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality as expected
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was accurate
  • looks great, hard to maintain

    Love this rug's presence but.... sheds short hairs from blue nap and Silk embellishments to create bursts are constantly pulling out with vacuum. Just be warned that you have to cut runners that vacuum creates so that you don't pull out an entire star burst line and you need to set the vacuum to high nap. Not for an active household but great for someone comfortable with white carpet and silk upholstery.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color is right on
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. super soft wool

  • We LOVE this rug!

    We purchased this rug (and the matching 9x13) just before the Thanksgiving holiday, and with a seemingly endless stream of guests over the last 2 weeks, every single person has commented on it. All positive! The texture of the "bursts" is a longer weave. It's thicker than you would find in a shag rug, but the fibers have all withstood heavy traffic and vacuuming over the last 2 weeks. The colors are calming, and coordinate well with our other furninshings. The blue is soft, with almost a gray tint, so it would look fine paired with a heavily neutral room. We did have some shedding in the first several days, but with a few extra passes of the vacuum, this problem has been alleviated.

  • If you like it buy it

    As the title suggests if you see this rug and like the style, then buy it. You will not be disappointed. Some of the things other people have said are true though: the blue is slightly more pale than the picture leads you to believe (still nice tho) and the rug sheds (not sure if it qualifies as a lot since I've never had a rug before). However, I have not seen any of the 'bursts' fall out as others have claimed, but I live in a very low traffic home and have not vacuumed the rug yet. Overall the rug is awesome. So awesome I bought a smaller version to go underneath the bar stools at my kitchen pass through. If you are even considering buying it but the reviews are delaying you, do it. It's a nice rug and people that come over are like 'woah.'

  • Nice rug, but...

    The rug colors in the online photo were pretty. When the rug arrived, the colors were the same as depicted in the photo, but the starburst designs were made of a different material (long fringes) than the rest of the rug. If you want a rug with a lot of texture, you may not mind the design. I was looking for a more classic style, and the rug appeared messy or frayed to me. This rug is going back. Bummer.

  • Great looking rug, but…...

    When we first got this rug I was thrilled. It is gorgeous and seemed plush and the colors and pattern are awesome. However, it sheds SO much all the time! I cannot describe the amount of fibers that are coming off of this rug. We've had it for 3 months and I vacuum it daily (I have to…we have dark hardwood floors and there are literally piles of rug fibers all over the place each day, and this is with very low traffic). I'd love to post a picture to show how much is coming off of this rug but this review will have to do. Crazy!!! And it is CONSTANT - whether you walk on it or not. The beautiful shaggy starbursts are already starting to pull out and the tiny fibers (seriously, pets shed less than this! We don't have a pet but it looks like we own sheep in our dining room) are everywhere! Sorry. Love the look…hate the quality.

  • Not Blue

    Be warned, this carpet is NOT BLUE, it is most definitely GRAY! If you like gray, then it might work for you. I realize gray is a very in color right now, however it's just not for me. The home I moved into is gray EVERYWHERE-- curtains, walls, even the interior doors. I like warm tones. So I got this carpet for the chocolate color, which I love to pop with a cool blue. As in baby blue. I unrolled the carpet and it was CEMENT GRAY. Again, giving it a good rating since it was just a color preference. Overstock is awesome as always and they got it, the description was off so they let me return the carpet at no cost. Also, I was a little surprised by the texture of the bursts. I expected them to be like oversized stitch work. But it was like pieces of frayed tshirt material. It was still nice enough, just surprising. And the chocolate color was a little lighter brown than a dark chocolate color.

  • High Quality for a Low Price

    Even though this rug took a little bit for me to get used to, (the decorative bursts are at least a half an inch taller than the blue wool), I am very pleased with the rug. After laying it out I felt like I had made a mistake but then I left my house for errands and found myself pleasantly surprised when I came back with how nice the rug pulled our living room together. Yes the rug sheds but, I've had a quality wool rug before and it happened with that one too so I was expecting that much. All that said, I think the quality is wonderful for such a great price.
