I do not normally write reviews, but have found myself dependent on others' reviews so I thought I would extend the same courtesy. I unwrapped the rug yesterday, completely thinking it would be going back based on the one review of this same rug in a smaller size. I was, however, pleasantly surprised as it was just what the picture represented. The blue sections have a sheen to them and can take on different colors in different lights, maybe even leaning to the blue/green side. The quality is a little above average for the price. There was one loose string along the edge that I snipped with scissors and it seems to be fine. My goal was to provide a touch of whimsy in a mostly traditional home, which I think this rug does, as it is subtle and not too modern. The only thing that I did not expect was the pile of the rug is loose, like carpet, not knotted or woven in any way. It doesn't bother me though because it is in our living room and gives the feel of carpeting for the kids to play on.

The rug arrived quickly. I would say the colors are taupe and sea foam blue/green. Perfect beach tones i was going for. The textures of wool/viscose add to the interest of the carpet. It lends a casual, modern feel to the room. Yes, it sheds when vacuumed which seems to be typical for this quality of carpet. Very happy with purchase.
It looks like someone cut a square from regular carpet and the shedding is ridiculous still after 2 months. I feel like I was ripped off as I am shopping for another carpet for my living room. Don't buy this rug! I assure you, you will be disappointed.
