  • beautiful but . . .

    This is a really beautiful Safavieh rug. I know what this brand costs as I have another one already, so I really practically stole this one! It is very thick and the appearance has a nice lightness and airiness to it because of the rather delicate design. It is one of those designs that will go with just about any fabric I choose to put on my parsons chairs when I reupholster. I have dark hardwood floors and this rug really stands out against them! My only complaint is that it is not as yellow as the picture. I was prepared for that as I have ordered other rugs from Overstock in the past and returned every one because the colors were so off from the picture. The field is really just a very light ivory; the only yellow is in some of the pattern and the outside border which is a golden color (very nice). The dark rust red in the design is very thin in outline so it could be considered many dark red colors depending on what colors you bring into the room (burnt orange, burgundy, etc.) so it is very versatile. I love the values on Overstock; I just wish they would upgrade their color representation and/or give a more detailed color description. Rugs are such a pain to return!

  • Very pleased!

    I, of course, had a bit of trepidation about ordering a 9X12 rug sight unseen. I've done tons of shopping on Overstock and usually been extremely pleased. On the occasion I've had the send something back (usually shoes) it's an easy process. I knew this would not be so with a very heavy, very large rug. It took six of us to lay the pad and rug under my bed but it was immediately clear that the color was perfect and it's a high quality rug. It looks beautiful in my bedroom where I mix original deco furniture with funky lamps and mix match pillows and upholstered furniture. Just my style. This rug is a steal at the price I paid, delivery was very fast and efficient. I highly recommend. One note: with only myself to blame (I guess) I had typed in oriental as the category of rug I was searching for and most of the rugs were made in Pakistan, India and Iran. When we put the rug down on my floor and I looked at the tag that said "made in China" I was horrified. I referred back to the site and somewhere very small it does indeed state that. I WILL NOT BUY MERCHANDISE MADE IN CHINA until we work out a fair trade agreement. So, I was disappointed, in myself. I am usually a very careful shopper.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I read all the reviews and there were many who complained that the rug was more geige than gold, which was exactly what I was looking for.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. beautiful quality for a hand knotted rug made in China. Doesn't shed which is a huge plus. Very think and beautiful to walk on.
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? very except for what is always an issue with online shopping, not Overstock alone, just you have to expect that colors will vary from screen to screen and computer type
  • Color more beige than gold

    The carpet is of good quality, Safavieh. It's comfortable and on the thick side. The color however, in my opinion, was not as pictured. I found it to be more beigy and rust with touches of black - not the golden tone you see here. I kept the carpet because I did not want to go through the trouble of sending it back. I now use it in another room that has Hush Paint by Benjamin more and an attempted Ralph Lauren look - and it works perfectly in that room. It's a very nice carpet, good quality, and if the beige/rust/blackish-blue color scheme works for you, it's perfect. It has a Navaho/American Indian feel to it - which also works in the room I ultimately ended up putting it in.

  • Sand Rug

    Once ordered, we received the rug and pad eithin a week! The rug is thick and cushiony underfoot. Although the description did not specify the color black in the rug, there are definite black accents in the pattern. Otherwise, the colors are soft and the blue/green border goes great in my bedroom. The sand color matches my light oak flooring and has just enough color to anchor the bed. The pad holds it in place and provides the correct amount of buffer between the rug and floor. It does not shed, did not have a strong dye odor, and shipping folds came right out.. All in all, the rug is a great bargain for the money. You would expect to pay much more in a rug store. Thanks, Overstock!

  • I am extremely happy with my purchase.

    I am extremely happy with my purchases. Most likely I would recommend to my friends about the convenience of buying on-line from Overstock.

  • Amazing price, thick wool rug

    The color is sandy not gold. There is a little black that is perfect, it will work with a lot of different decors. unbeatable price for the size and very comparable to pottery barn wool rugs. I actually think this one is more dense than pb, which i like better. it did have an odor for about 2 weeks??

  • happy with purchase

    I ordered this rug 2wks. ago. and I am very satisfied with this purchase. I had been looking for a rug for awhile and had not found anything I could afford and actually liked. The background color is sand (light beige/cream) and the design is similar to southwest Indian but it is subtle. The other colors in the rug are black, grey, very little gold in the pattern but it is edged with gold, and a dark (almost rust) orange. I used this rug in my LR & have a gold couch and chairs in a gold, light brown, bluish-grey and cream strip and I like how all the colors blend together. I used a rust colored lamp & vase in the adjacent dining room to bring the rooms together. I did hesitate to order a rug on line because of the cost of returning but after reading the reviews decided to give it a try . The price for 9x12 wool rug was GREAT!! and luckily I am not disappointed. The only draw back & the reason I did not give it an excellent review is the chemical smell. It is getting better but still present. I am in Florida and have had the a/c on but soon will be able to open the windows and hope that will help dissipate the remaining odor. I did not use any spray for odor on the carpet yet but if the open air does not work I will. I have not had much of a problem with shedding after the first few runs with the vacuum.

  • Interesting patter yet subtle

    I'm pleased with the rug and make an effort to walk through the dining room just to admire it. I like that the pattern is interesting yet doesn't overwhelm the room. Pattern is also busy enough to hide accidental stains. I'm so happy with the carpet that I purchased a second rug for the living room.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfect
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Happy with quality
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? good description

  • Sand color shown is darker and has a green tint.

    The sand color is a little darker than depicted and has a green tint. Otherwise beautiful. Dissappointed that this rug began to pill when vacuuming with a canister vacuum with a powerhead (new Kenmore Progressive vacuum cleaner) so recommend not using a vacuum with a powerhead on this rug. My more expensive rugs don't have this problem so I know it is not the vacuum cleaner.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The sand color is a little darker than shown and has a green, not gold, tint.
