I bought this rug in conjunction with a Laura Ashley bedspread of lavender and white. Since I am doing the guest room in purples, I wanted something that would pop on the wood floor next to the bedspread. I chose this rug primarily because of the reasonable price so I knew I couldn't expect wool, but I was hoping for a rug that felt good on bare feet. And this one does. I think the fact that it is a shag rug with long fibers is the reason it feels luxurious. Your feet kind of sink into it. That said, it has a slightly rough texture to it that you wouldn't find in wool, but it is not unpleasant. In fact, it feels oddly interesting. Also, the color is a lovely deep rich true purple.
I almost sent these back, I ordered three for a long hallway, because the ends didn't look deep purple. Oh but when I unrolled them! So beautiful and the color is almost too perfect. I got really lucky or Overstock is just that good. I redid my hallway and bought key pieces all from Overstock. So many compliments and I was told it has a designer look! Thanks Overstock!
I have been looking for a dark purple rug for a long time. When I saw how cheap this carpet was and the color was perfect I bought it. The rug is true to the color in the picture and it is very plush. I loved it so much that I bought a second one.
