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 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!
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.
Thicker than expected but gets dirty very easy & im not sure how to safely clean it. Also gets those fuzzies. Ok, but not floored by this rug although for the price would order another if needed knowing that it'd be replaced when u found something better.
I installed this runner on my stairs. I ordered two in grey and began installing them. I realized I needed to purchase one more to fit the entire length of the stairs since I had to cut off a large portion of the 2d runner to get the lines from the pattern to match correctly. I ordered a 3d grey and it did not match the first two. It had more blue in it. I ultimately chose to go with an entirely different runner b/c these shed like crazy. The white also got incredibly dirty very quickly.
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.
