Although aesthetically pleasing at first, THIS RUG SHEDS LIKE NO OTHER!!! The pile is very thick, which is super deceiving. The white comes out and gets all over on the navy blue so that the colors blend into each other and it looks like a nappy hair ball mess. This is IMPOSSIBLE to clean!!! I try to vacuum it and the lint just moves all over the floor. Then I move the vacuum (which is new) to another rug, and it brings that lint to the other rug. This rug has turned into my nightmare!! I have to wet a paper towel to get the link that is around the rug. AND IT HAPPENS EVERY DAY!! It's not even high traffic!!!

We had high hopes for the light gray colored wool runner we ordered. Shipping was fast! However, upon receiving the product and cutting open the surrounding packaging, we noticed an odor coming from the rug that resembled sweaty feet. We decided that perhaps this is what the rug is supposed to smell like?, but then rolled it out on the floor and discovered several obvious, small stains in the "trellis" portions of the rug. In addition, the color had faded and resembled the look you'd find in a 10-year old rug: not vibrant at all. Whether this rug was previously used and returned to Overstock or straight off the assembly line, one cannot know, but quality control was obviously lacking in one of those departments. We have since returned the product.
The whole family loves this runner -- even my husband who never comments on decor stuff unsolicited. Shoppers should know, tho, that the white trellis design is RAISED -- if it's in the product description, I sure missed it. This is not a negative for me, but someone else might not want it this way.
The new runner fits perfectly in my hallway! I chose the blue/grey color, and it is definitely blue, but I still like the color. It also vacuums very nicely. I've had wool rugs before, and I couldn't get them cleaned up very easily, but I haven't had that problem with this rug at all!
This rug did have some lint that would travel about when it was walked on. I wish that there was some traction on the back of this rug because it moves all over my hallway and doesn't stay put, which caused me to have to get a anti-slide mat to place underneath the rug. It has a nice design.
I love this runner. I've had it for about 5 months now, but it still sheds A LOT. I hope it'll stop eventually. I definitely have to vacuum every two weeks. Other than that it's great as a runner, looks great and the wool material is comfy and soft.
I bought the extra long runner in beige. It's more of a cream color. It seems that there is also some discoloration in a few areas but thankfully because the rug is light it is not as noticeable. The rug is soft. I've noticed there are a few snags in the rug that are probably from us which has me concerned because we've only had the rug a month. The price makes it hard to beat finding something as nice any where else.
I really love the style and color of this rug. My only complaint is the shedding, thread from the white design of the rug gets all over the blue. I have to vacuum like everyday. It's still really new so maybe it will get better once the newness wears off.
Bought this runner for foyer and bought 2 more for small home in Seaford L.I. with an open floor plan . The home has wood floors and you can see the diningroom and livingroom areas as you walk in . Using all the same gives the room an instant designer look and is refreshing. The quality is great! Everyone who walks in comments on how great it looks You can add a touch of yellow for shot of color.
