  • Great Value

    Well worth the $$ ( great value for a wool rug). Had a few lumps - that eventually left. Minor shedding

  • Subtle variations with pops

    I love that even though this is primarily a light colored rug, the colors are warm with little contrast between the background, which is a dark cream, and the main design, which is a warm grey and medium and darker golds. The red is a deep blood red, and is the primary contrast. Pattern does not feel overwhelming or busy, and does not have a "right" or wrong direction. Yes, lots of shedding, which is a moot point, as nearly all rugs do,, and some odor the first couple of days, which dissipated. I live on a lake and surrounded by lots of green, would have been easy to go with the white-washed, beach-y feel but this rug feels like sunshine on an overcast day. Perfect for us in the Northwest, not glaring sunshine, just some nice, muted warmth with a sophisticated and subtle design. I love it.

  • love this rug!

    First of all, I ordered this rug on a thursday and received it on the following monday! very very fast! I love this rug, I read many reviews on this rug and a few others. I ordered this rug because of the reviews. I was looking for a soft, muted rug, not to bright. The recent reviews said that it was lighter than in the picture on the computer, and it is, it you look at the color on the picture, it is darker and more gold. the one i received is more beige and the colors are muted. its just perfect!!! It does have a smell to it but I think its just because it was taped up and wrapped in plastic for a while. Otherwise it is an amazing deal, this rug anywhere else would be over $2000.00. Love love love it!!!

  • Much lighter in color than picture

    We have this large rug in our living room and while it has been great, it is much lighter in color than what is pictured. It doesn't have the darker yellow tint that the picture shows, but in fact is much lighter - like a sand color. I had read this in many other reviews and was looking for a light rug so this worked out perfectly. Trust the reviews on this one. Our only issue with this rug is that it sheds, A LOT. We purchased the rug in November of 2012 and it is still shedding in June of 2014, though noticeably less than at the beginning. Because it is in a high traffic area near our couch, it needs to be vacuumed every few days as the fibers get everywhere. I'm hoping this continues to slow down, but I wasn't expecting this much shedding.

  • Gorgeous rug

    As others have said, it is more muted than the picture, and is a very beautiful rug. The yellow background is more of either sand or kind of a smokey lemon yellow, with the outside border a very light warm gray brown on the reddish side. The red is somewhere in between burgundy and brick, neither purple-ish nor orangy. The other big flowers are a muted orange yellow. Other colors are very light gray (smaller flowers) that has the optical illusion of feeling a bit blue next to the yellow, and a very muted gray green for smaller details. The background is solid and the border has a subtle weave look to it - a detail that makes the rug look very rich. I have it in the bedroom, and it is such a gentle relaxing color. The colors are pale so, though there is a lot going on in the pattern, it does not feel busy. As for smell and shedding. This seems exactly like the rugs I got from the same company two years ago. For the first six months they did shed some, but not a horrible amount for a rug this thick. As with any new wool rug, it does smell like wool, but frankly, the rubber/felt rug pad I ordered with it smelled more. Once I laid the rug over the pad, the smell went down a lot. After the first week the rugs I ordered two years ago only had a subtle wool odor with extreme humidity for the first year. I expect this might be the same or less, as this rug already seems to smell less from the package. Probably I will sleep in there tomorrow night. I can't wait - it's so lovely. Thanks Overstock! Another fabulous rug.

  • Quick service-Great rug!

    This is my first Overstock purchase. I was quite leery about spending several hundred dollars on a rug I hadn't seen in person as I am fairly discriminating. The rug is simply beautiful and the quality is that seen in more expensive items. Colors are subtle, tasteful, and there is no odor. It arrived all the way out to the West Coast in only 6 days.

    This is the most amazing deal for a high-quality, handmade, wool rug one can find anywhere, short of a liquidation sale! The rug is gorgeous, exactly as described, and was a steal for a rug of this quality. I could not be more pleased, nor could I be more enthusiastic to recommend this item to anyone seeking quality at a bargain basement price! I am highly pleased with my purchase.
