THIS IS THE WORST RUG I EVER PURCHASED!!! DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR RUG SHEDDING ALL OVER YOUR HOUSE....NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU VACUUM OR SHAKE IT OUT AND AFTER OVER A MONTH OF VERY LIGHT USE IT CONTINUES TO SHED. THE QUALITY IS SO POOR IT LOOKS LIKE A CHEAP RUG AND SUPER THIN. PLUS IT ARRIVED FOLDED UP IN A SQUARE IN A RIPPED PAPER BAG. NEED I POINT OUT IT IS A WHITE RUG??? THE DIRT MARKS ARE ON THE BACK SIDE SO I KEPT IT. I ALSO KEPT IS BECAUSE I WAS HOPING FOR IT TO STOP SHEDDING AND COULDN'T WAIT TO SHOW MY HUSBAND BUT I WANT TO GET RID OF IT-- stat. I have all caps because that's how bad it is...Read More
Absolutely beautiful! The rug is super soft and the quality is top notch. I have since purchased several things from Overstock.com and my entire experience has been positive. Their customer service is excellent-you reach a real person who actually cares. I would tell anyone who asks, shop Overstock.com!Read More
Very happy with item. Insane low price! Update modern look with this natural fiber Flotaki from Overstock, with free shipping and save a ton of money, like I did. There are other Flotakis at three times the price - but this is great - it gives you the look. You will be walking on it, and setting your furnature on it, why pay so much more? I recomend you buy a high quality rug pad from Overstock as well to protect your natural fiber rug. I also bought the runner that matched perfect. I find the color to be extremely accurate - natural, as expected.Read More
This rug is a great buy for the price! I wanted a large flokati rug for my bedroom that will add some coziness and glamour to my cold tile floors, but a flokati rug this size was on the thousands everywhere I looked. I couldn't believe my eyes when I found this rug in Overstock at this price, so I bought it right away; and I'm glad I did. It sure took the look of my bedroom to another level! Please understand that the back of this rug is not rigid like most hand-tufted wool rugs, is more like a heavy furry blanket (so much so you can folded if you needed to); but it's not thin and skimpy looking either!! I recommend using a rug pad underneath it, it will prolong the life of the rug and will add extra thickness and support when walking over it. I purchased the "Durable Hard Surface and Carpet Rug Pad (9' x 12') by Safavieh" here in Overstock as well and have no regrets. It fits perfectly under the rug (didn't need to trim it) and it adds that extra support and comfort that a rug like this will need to look and feel its best... I am very happy with my purchase!!Read More
This is a BIG rug...12x9...so make sure you measure your space. It ships folded into about a 3-4' square, but unfolds without any of those "carpet ridges" you might have seen when unfolding other rugs. It's VERY light...we have it on a wood floor and you will want a rug pad (we cut up pieces and put around the edges.) It's so soft and fluffy. One thing to note is that it's all natural, which I like, but it SHEDS!!! Every day there are little white wisps of wool all over the place; I'll find my dogs have some hanging from their snoozes at times. You have to be diligent, but it's easy to keep up In my opinion. Good value for the price IMO.Read More
The rug is amazing. Looks exactly like picture. Four important notes 1) You must use with a rug pad. Get the Durable rug pad sold on Overstock - it's the best one and made by Safaveih 2) All long-haired rugs shed. This rug is not low maintenance. It's about a look. If you have OCD don't buy it. You will need to vacuum often 3) This is not a rug for major foot traffic. A bedroom. Home office, Yes. 4) This is a great price for a 9 x 12 flokati.Read More
I have owned Flokatis before and I am familiar with the fact that they come in several weights; blanket, summer, and carpet. Unfortunately, the description didn't indicate which weight this one was and it was much closer to a blanket weight than rug. The color was also disappointing, in the morning light it was yellow and not a natural wool color. I was looking for something completely different than I received and returned it.Read More
Another review of this rug as light and fluffy is a good description. It is almost like a big fluffy blanket. To me it almost looks like snow, or a big fluffy cloud. Prior to purchasing the rug I was afraid that it would look like a huge piece of matted fur on the floor - but it definitely does not. I was also worried that the larger (9x12) size might just magnify this, but it doesn't. It just looks awesome. The rug is also very soft and comfortable. I think Overstock has in particular a fantastic selection of rugs, at outstanding prices. I definitely recommend this rug.Read More
If you are expecting a heavy wool rug, this is not your pick. This rug is lite and fluffy like a blanket. Flokati rugs are washable, although I am not sure my machine would fit this rug. Yes, it does shed and is a lot of upkeep but, it is the perfect rug for my living room. Soft to your feet the shag is more like long fur! You can not vacuum it with a beater brush, it will be eaten up. This rug has gotten compliments since the day it arrived. I love it!Read More
I was worried that the rug wouldn't be plush enough but am very satisfied. Almost ruined it and did bust my vacuum by having the beater brush going. Now I vacuum it using hardwood floors setting and it works well. I haven't tried using a wire dog brush yet but read that works too!Read More

Best Kid-friendly Fabric for Sofas
Finding the right sofa and loveseats that match your room, have the right look and meet your budget can be like searching for a needle in a haystack. If kid-friendly fabrics are on your must-have list, start by looking below. This article will help you find the best kid-friendly fabrics for sofas, which should repel stains and hold up to added abuse from children jumping, scooting and forgetting to remove their shoes before hopping on the sofa. Microfiber: Microfiber is stain-resistant and comes in different textures. Some microfiber weaves are smooth, like suede, and others are denser, similar to corduroy. You may clean most microfiber with water, but check the manufacturer's tag because a few types of microfiber may require cleaning with a compatible solvent. Wool: For sofas, wool and wool blends are great because of their durability. They're less prone to pilling, snagging and wrinkling than other fabrics. Plus, wool is easy to spot-clean. Vacuum this natural fabric with a hand-held vacuum attachment to remove dust. Leather: Leather is a versatile sofa fabric; it can be elegant or totally casual. Its slick surface makes cleanups relatively easy. Beware if you have pets, as little claws can leave scratch marks. Scuff-repair solutions are available, and they can keep your kids' sofa looking good for years. In addition, a quick treatment with leather conditioner once or twice a year will keep the sofa soft and supple. Vinyl: Vinyl is just as versatile as leather and often has the same smart look, but at a much more affordable price. It's easy to clean, too: just spray it with water and wipe spills away. Vinyl isn't as snuggly as microfiber, but in a playroom, it will hold up to lots of abuse. Denim: Just because a sofa is upholstered in denim doesn't mean it'll look like your worn-out jeans. Just like a comfy pair of jeans, denim is sturdy and goes with everything. In addition, denim sofas are available in a rainbow of colors to match your kids' bedrooms or playroom.

FAQs about Pre-Owned Rolex Watches | Overstock.comFAQs about Pre-Owned Rolex Watchesby Shawna Edwards I've never made a large purchase online. Why pick Overstock.com?Overstock.com is one of the largest retailers of high-end jewelry and watches. We have taken the time to create a Web environment that caters to our customers by allowing them to comfortably shop for wristwatches from the privacy of their homes. We offer our customers a wide variety of timepieces at the most competitive prices available. In addition to this, we want them to feel secure purchasing from us. Overstock.com is one of a handful of online high-end watch merchants that are capable of processing your credit card for your entire purchase. This allows "first-time buyers" to feel more secure in making a large purchase because they have an added layer of security via their credit card company. Do all your Rolex watches come with their serial numbers?Every Rolex watch sold by Overstock.com will have its unique Rolex serial and reference numbers in place and viewable by removing the watch band from the six o'clock and twelve o'clock ends. What is meant by "Perfect Like New Condition?""Perfect like new (day one) condition" watches are pre-owned Rolex timepieces that are purchased by Overstock.com in pristine, mint and immaculate condition. This obviously is the case cosmetically and mechanically. Every timepiece is thoroughly inspected to ensure that they are authentic and meet our quality standards. These luxury watches are so pristine that, in most cases, they are indistinguishable from new watches. Our men's watches and women's watches may have miniscule markings, and the watch bracelets will have miniscule amounts of stretch. Will my watch come with documentation?Every watch will come with detailed documentation stating a full watch description, serial number and model number. Being that the manufacturer's warranty has expired, you will receive a limited one-year warranty from our vendor. Will my watch be covered by a warranty, and what about post warranty service?Being that the manufacturer's warranties on these timepieces have expired, our vendor issues a one-year limited warranty on every watch. The warranty work is done by expert watchmakers who use only original manufacturers' parts and have decades of experience working with Rolex watches. After the one-year limited warranty has expired, you may continue to request service through our vendor who will service the watch when needed at industry cost prices. How can I be sure that the watch will fit my wrist?All our watches will fit up to a 6-and-a-half-inch wrist for a woman and for a man will fit up to a 7-and-a-half-inch wrist (extra links are available for additional charges). Rolex watches can be easily resized to fit any wrist by your local jeweler. How do I measure for my wrist size?You can get an approximate measurement of your wrist by using a soft measuring tape or measuring the inside of your best fitting watch. If you don't have a soft measuring tape, you can wrap a ribbon or a piece of string around your wrist at the wrist bone, mark the spot where it meets, and measure it against a ruler to determine your approximate wrist size. To get the best fit, measure fairly snug at the wrist bone. This is approximate sizing not a 100 percent guarantee of prefect sizing.If the watch is a gift and you do not know the recipient's wrist size, you can use the following as a guide (as with all products, the standard sizes depend on the manufacturer):Men's Standard Bracelet SizesInside, including watch face while bracelet is closedAdult Small5-1/2" to 6-1/2"Adult Average6-1/2" to 7-1/2"Adult Large7-1/2" to 8-1/2"Adult X-Large8-1/2" to 9-1/2" Women's Standard Bracelet SizesInside, including watch face while bracelet is closedAdult Small4-1/2" to 5-1/2"Adult Average5-1/2" to 6-1/2"Adult Large6-1/2" to 7-1/2"Adult X-Large7-1/2" to 8-1/2" Will the watch be fully water-resistant? And can I go swimming or shower with my watch?Every Rolex watch is fully tested for water resistance; the total depth rating is listed with every model. Drawing on years of experience, it is our recommendation that, though Rolex watches are water resistant, because of the fine nature of the timepiece, we discourage our customers from making a practice of taking them in the shower or pool. If for some reason the stem, which is the round mechanism found on the side of the case, which is unscrewed to set the time, is not completely screwed down, water could leak into the movement and damage the watch. (Please refer to your warranty card regarding water damage.) The chances are incredibly slim that this will happen, but nonetheless it is our recommendation that our customers refrain from taking their Rolex watches into the water to avoid any unnecessary problems. How does Overstock.com offer such great prices when my local jeweler has a similar piece for considerably more?Overstock.com has built the best connections in the business, affording us the ability to buy from dealers at the highest level of the industry. Through these connections we can buy in the largest quantities while getting the best pricing. Being that we are not an authorized dealer of Rolex or affiliated with Rolex, USA we are able to offer our customers rock bottom pricing without being subject to any manufacturer's price controls or policies. Do I need to be present to sign for the package?For your safety, you will need to sign for the package that contains your watch. If you are not present when it arrives, the package will not be left at your door. A door tag will be left to inform you when the courier will come to redeliver your package. Alternatively, you can call the courier to arrange a better delivery time or pick-up (with photo identification) at the local hub. What is the benefit of buying a pre-owned Rolex over a new one?Unlike new Rolex watches, pre-owned Rolex watches do not depreciate in value immediately after purchase. Therefore, buying a new Rolex watch is like buying a brand new car: The moment you drive it off the lot it has lost 20 to 30 percent of its value. With buying a pre-owned watch, you have effectively cut out any value depreciation and retail markup. Rolex watches hold their value over time; in most cases, a pre-owned Rolex can be resold at a price very close to your purchase price.Rolex designs don't change too often; therefore, owning a perfect condition pre-owned timepiece is as good as a new one, with no one knowing that the watch was purchased pre-owned. No one can spot a used Rolex on your wrist. With the proper care and maintenance, a Rolex lasts forever. How do I determine the age of my watch?You are guaranteed to receive a desirable modern watch with a fully automatic self-winding (or quartz movement depending on your purchase), with quickset date feature. Due to the fact that Rolex models are manufactured for a number of years, the year of your watch will be circa 1980s or 1990s. Every Rolex watch sold by Overstock.com will have its unique Rolex serial number, which determines the year of manufacture.
