In this size, the rug looks plush in the photos, but in other sizes it appears to be a looped carpet with the medallions being plush. Can you confirm what this carpet is like?

beautiful rug. soft soothing colors. it sheds a lot and it's still shedding a little.Read More
This is a beautiful and well-made rug, but it tends to wrinkle in the middle. Am not sure how to solve this problem.Read More
Beautiful bright, light blue. The medallions have a combo of tan and off white threads. Very soft. Great purchase!Read More
This rug looks good with classic or modern, easy to fit in with decor. It does shed a lot but I have had it almost 2 years with a cat constantly digging at it and my carpet vacuum sucking up fibers and it still looks good. Kitty also pukes on the carpet... but it cleans up great with some carpet stain spray! It is a woven wool rug so if kitty really digs and pulls out the white strings knotting it all together those will be more obvious and I have clipped those once since I've owned it. I think this is much better than any other loop-type carpet I could have purchased!Read More
I recently purchased the Light Blue NZ Medallion Wool Rug - size 5x8 - for our new office/sewing room. I really love the warmth it provides, and the color is very light/soft... the medallions are a mixture of white/cream/beige, but looks off-white from a distance... the rug itself is soft underfoot... mine hasn't shed much at all - some reviewers have mentioned shedding. I would highly recommend this rug!Read More
This rug was just as I expected - a nice, neutral color with a pattern that is calm enough to match with other decor patterns. Used an online coupon to get add'l discount - so price was excellent for the value.Read More
I am extremely pleased with my purchase of this Medallion Light Blue 100% wool rug. This rug in the 5x8 foot size was my second floor covering purchased from Overstock and I am even more delighted with this buy than my previous order. As I discovered upon delivery, this rug comes from a name-brand manufacturer and would retail for substantially more anywhere else. The pile is thick and plush, feels comfortable and rich underfoot (especially with a rug pad underneath) and did not exude any odor other than the new carpet smell. I have not experienced any shedding. What makes me most happy with this purchase is the color and design: a very soft, pale turquoise blue that has hints of seafoam green, with the medallions in a soft goldenrod shade. The pattern is tasteful and not cheesy or loud, and would fit in with any high-end rugs in home decor stores. As other reviewers have noted, the rug has a nice sheen to it and I am impressed with the quality. It fit in perfectly with my living room by providing a calming color but not overpowering the rest of my furniture. Comparable rugs in synthetic materials go for at least this much in price, so I think this is superb value and style. You also cannot beat the shipping rate and speed: my order arrived in 3 days. The key to finding a rug you like online is to read reviews, shop around and research extensively and go with a good deal when you find it.Read More
We bought this because our old rug was just a little too big for our place. This one was perfect! When it arrived (which was fast by the way), it was protected in plastic wrap and in perfect condition. The colors were exactly what we expected from the picture, the fibers were soft, and the overall appearance of it was just great. However, be prepared for some shedding at first!!! Lots of loose fuzz and very small fibers continue to show themselves on our socks and coffee table (maybe I shouldn't put my feet on the coffee table??) Not a big deal and a few times over with a vacuum would clear it right up i'm sure. In the end, we are very satisfied with this rug and recommend it to anyone who is considering it. THANKS!Read More
Questions & Answers
It is all plush, wears beautifully and looks great! Color exactly as it appears in photos. We've had it for 3 years and love it!
Is this rug as washed out as the picture? Or can you see a clear distinction between the pattern and the background?
Hello tangerinez, The reviews are a good source of feedback for the color of this rug. One recent reviewer states that "the the color is very light/soft... the medallions are a mixture of white/cream/beige, but looks off-white from a distance... " Thank you for shopping with us.
it is pretty washed out , the pattern is not that defined but it is really pretty and a nice height to the pile and very soft
The pattern is not sharp because the somewhat long fibers of the rug can move about.
not so much washed out but a lot of green tones. Medallions are a creamy off white.
In the picture this rug looks a little aqua. Can you confirm if it is a sky blue or greenish blue?
Hello mhunter7355, I like this description from one of our reviewers "a very soft, pale turquoise blue that has hints of seafoam green, with the medallions in a soft goldenrod shade." We hope this helps and thank you for shopping with us.
It is not aqua it is a pale powdery blue.
Can you please tell me whether any adhesives or stain/insect proofing chemicals have been used in the manufacture of this rug?
