    • not too shaggy

      This rug is pretty, but not as shaggy and soft as I was hoping... I kept it because it was a great price and I needed a large rug

    • Love.

      I was nervous at first but this was the cheapest rug I could find. Ended up being an amazing purchase. Soft on the feet and exactly the color I was expecting. Great buy.

    • Nice looking and affordable!

      I absolutely love this shag rug! Its huge and soft, and for the price I'd say its good quality. It really makes my colors in my great room pop and looks great over tile or carpet. When UPS delivered it it was stained at the bottom because they stood it outside my front door leaning on the wall but I just used a carpet cleaner and it came right out. I'd definitely recommend this rug, I really liked it I ordered another one!

    • Nice rug

      Great rug. Using it in a basement TV/game room. It has an odor to it initially that smelled musty. Have had it a few weeks and it has lightened up smell wise considerably. Kids love it much more than the last low napped rug I had in there.

    • should have waited for the gold

      I got the white rug since comments reflected it's not a true white but more of a off-white. I feel it's somewhere in between, it has grown on me but man it's a matter of time before I start to see the impact of normal usage. I might have been better off getting the gold but it was not available at time of purchase. I paid $220 but OS credited me the difference for the price drop.

    • Great Rug! Perfected my livingroom

      The rug is overall very nice for the price. It is able to withstand frequent vacuuming and 2 dogs that love it. I was slightly disappointed that the sizing was a bit off but not a real problem for me. As for the shade variation, I actually purchased it because others stated that it was off white which is what I was looking for. I also purchased a thick pad which I would highly recommend.

    • Alexa Plush Rug

      This rug was ordered for a nursery, and it feels great underfoot, either with shoes or barefooted. I was happy to see the color and plushness lived up to the picture and description, and that the workmanship is finished on all edges and the underside. I would recommend this product and would purchase again.

    • good for price

      The rug is beautiful, but it's not as luxurious and thick as others I have seen. However, it is also much less expensive than other shag rugs elsewhere. The smell is terrible, but am hoping that it goes away soon. Also, the edges are very "raw" and look old and shattered. The rug is on the thin side and is definitely not white--more of an antique/ivory white. I bought it for my daughter's nursery and am satifsfied vis a vis the price I paid.

    • misleading color

      this rug would have gotten 5 stars if the color displayed online were the color of the actual rug. i ordered the glacier blue, which appears to be a light blue/silver tone in the picture. this rug is more teal than anything. not at all as expected. this is the 3rd time i have received a rug from overstock where this was the case. the first 2 i sent back. this one i am keeping and trying to make it work simply because i am tired of losing out on the cost of return shipping. again-the rug itself is great and a bargain, but the unexpected color is a true bummer.

    • I'm in an apartment with a terrible short shag carpet; I'd like to get an 8' X 10' to cover my entire living room, but need to know if the rug has a stiff backing on it, stiff enough that it will cover the carpet without wrinkling/dimpling. Thanks....

      • Hello maggiemcclellan, Yes, this does have a stiff backing. Thank you for your interest.

      • Yes, it has a stiff backing, however, be forewarned. I purchased this in dark green (8x10) and the smell was toxic. It did not air out, caused breathing problems for me (I have asthma/COPD)and I returned it. Would not purchase it again...ever!

      • My carpet is over a hard wood floor and my dog is over it always and stay in place all the time!!

      • Yes, backing is very stiff, I saw someone said it smelled, no smell here at all. It is very thick, don't think it will move at all on your carpet.

    • Is the glacier color a teal color? i want something more electric blue but I want to make sure this isn't grey or silver. I saw a comment saying the rug is more teal, that is what I want. Can you confirm this before ordering. if I need to return do I have to pay for shipping?

      • Hi gphi04, we tried verifying this information with our support team. We were told glacier color is closer to a blue, more like a light blue color. The last thing we want to do is contradict another customer but we want to share some insight from our end. At the same time color is relative and could change significantly from person to person. If the color is not to your liking their is a chance you will be responsible for return shipping. We hope this has answered your question.
