I ordered this rug to lay over an already-existing jute rug in my living room. The pattern was larger than it appeared online and seemed to overtake my room. Also, the light blue was slightly periwinkle/purple in my LR, but that could be due to the Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter walls I have. The rug was of a good quality and the cream design on the rug was slightly raised. The navy blue was a true navy. Ultimately, I returned the rug. Shipping was free and I received the rug within 5 days. Tip: make sure you keep the shipping packaging until you are sure you'll be keeping the rug so it is easy to return. The Overstock return process is great, too -- you download the return label and drop the rug off to a UPS store.

This rug is beautiful. It is well-made, thick, extremely soft underfoot. The thickness and texture are not well represented by the photos in the product listing, but the light colored pattern areas are of a significantly taller pile than the blue areas. This gives the rug a texture underfoot that's unnerving at first, but quickly adaptable. You can feel the light colored areas distinctly differently from the blue areas. The rug's actual color is nearly identical to the way pictured here, if only that the light areas are slightly more cream-colored. Despite its beauty and quality, it's not without problems. Firstly, it was delivered wrapped in thick plastic but unrolled to reveal a musty smell. It was not moldy or dirty, just noticeably musty. Due to inclement weather we could not air it out outdoors, and instead laid it out with a fan blowing over it for two days, occasionally flipping it. It took two full days with a fan for the smell to dissipate and is no longer noticeable. Since we intended to put it under a bed, this delayed its final placement by a couple of days while it aired out. The smell is not overpowering, and it did go away, but there may be a warehousing problem with these. Next, the shedding. I can't overstate it. The initial shedding, in particular of the high-pile light colored areas, defies comprehension. Simpy dragging fingers over it will initially bring up large balls of wool. We spent about an hour vacuuming it slowly and thoroughly and completely filled 2 vacuum bags with wool fibers until the vacuum couldn't work any longer. You could knit a sweater. Continued vacuuming seems to be reducing this to more manageable levels. So the rug is lovely, soft, and well-made, but don't purchase it expecting to unroll and immediately use it. You may need to spend time airing it out, and you will need to vacuum quite a lot. We ordered the 8x10 on a Sunday afternoon and received the rug the following Friday.
Arrival of rug was quick, earlier than anticipate. BUT, after I unrolled the rug, 3 to 4 inch segments of unknotted, unraveled, and chunks of carpet fibers were missing, as if a dog or cat mangled certain areas of the rug. Furthermore, ran into problems with customer service handling return of the 5X8 rug matching these runners, and sent them back. Chat line customer service person was of no help either. Tracking of runners and replacements of them were never to be found because, items suddenly became "out of stock," but yet read they were being "processed," as status read on my account review.
I ordered this rug to go in my living room, and it is perfect! It is beautifully designed, and it's comfortable to walk on. I love it!! I placed my order on a Saturday, and it was delivered on Wednesday. I was concerned about the smell that others commented on, but it was not overpowering at all. I would definitely recommend this rug and Overstock to anyone!
I read reviews carefully before this purchase, and was concerned that the light blue color of the rug was really another color. It does look different in sunlight than it does under interior lighting. Still, it was perfect for my needs.
After reading the reviews on this product I was so nervous that the blue would be periwinkle/purplish, NOT at all. It's just as pictured. I used it in my little guys room and it's perfect. Thick and plush (used a rug pad from overstock). I would highly recommend this. I usually buy all my rugs from Pottery Barn but couldn't find the right one for the right price. It met my standards and was a great value!
I was in love with this rug from the picture, and it is even lovelier in person. It is quite soft and plush. We have it in our bedroom, and it immediately made the space feel warm and cozy. One warning: this thing is heavy! (I ordered the 9 x 12 size). I live in a third floor apartment and can usually bring Overstock rugs up the stairs by myself (with some strain!), but I could not budge this without a second person. That's how much thicker and nicer this is than usual!
This is a beautiful rug. The design is so pretty. It's a pleasure to look at it. It livens up the room with its lovely shades of blue and white. I am delighted with this purchase. One of many good buys from Overstock..

I purchased this rug recently for my living room and was very satisfied with the smaller version, so I decided to upgrade. Unfortunately when the larger one arrived it was not as nearly as perfect. Some of the loops were coming up and the sides looked worn. SInce I am looking to mix with antiques I decided to keep it anyway. Overall the color is great, the design gives it lots of character and it is soft despite its appearance.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color on site was very similar to the colors in person.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The rug itself was a little worn with pieces that are frayed, but I decided to keep it despite this because it adds character.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The site was very accurate.
I love this rug. Very high quality and a great price. I bought the 9x12 and it looks awesome in our family room and comfortable to sit on.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is close. The rug is navy with cream and the light blue is more if a periwinkle color.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality. I love that the cream areas are elevated so it has nice texture.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? I didn't think there was much of a description on the site so I took a chance.
This rug design is lovely but the smell is unbearable. It has a strong "jute" smell and the rug is sitting in my garage airing out. Such a disappointment since I had hoped I could put it in my dining room the day of delivery! I hope the smell dissipates or I'll need to return it!
