I don't know why but this carpet attracts so much dust. I am vacuuming it all the time. It reminds me of when I had a black car and it was always looking dirty. Other than that I have no complaints about the rug. Be sure to look carefully at the print in the photo. You have to really like the design or you won't like the rug.

got this in grey. it has a very nice, inch-thick pile and almost doesn't need a mat. the pattern is off beat and looks great at the beach. everyone loves it, always gets comments. exceptional quality for the price. thought about hanging it on the wall, it looks that good. all new rugs shed, a few months of shedding is fixed with regular vacuuming. shows no signs of traffic or normal usage - the fiber blend feels

The rug is beautiful! We purchased it in purple and it is exact colour that the picture indicates online. Also, the octopus design is tastefully done - kudos to the designer! It does shed some, but I noticed most new rugs will do the same so that is not a deal breaker for us. We highly recommend this rug if you're searching for something unique for your space.
First, I'd like to say that I absolutely love this rug. It's soft, very plush, and well made. I purchased the larger rug in grey. The color on the website is definitely a neutral grey (at least on my screen). The color of the rug I received is more of a blueish/purple-toned grey. It's beautiful and works well with my space, but for anyone expecting a neutral grey, it's not. I wish I could attach a photo to this review for anyone interested.
I bought the plum and it is darker than I expected (but the "color" is exactly right, it's just dark, like very saturated) but honestly it just makes it look more 'quality', as well as making the pattern REALLY pop. Because it is so dark, it looks much better freshly vaccumed and/or avoiding tracking dust and dirt all over it. I have to admit it's been filling up my vacuum like crazy but I've had it for a few months now and the shedding is finally calming down. I vacuum once a week. Speaking of cats, it does not show cat hair too much (fur in this case being black white and grey) and has held up well with two cats kneading it with their claws periodically. The silk comes out once in awhile due to the cats but for the most part it still visually appears unharmed. The wool, if the catchs catch it correctly, sometimes looks a bit knappy but I just use scissors to snip the 1-2mm of wool which is sticking up a bit too high. It still looks brand new, because it is a very, very dense rug. In my opinion there is NO reason you should need a rug mat underneath. The pile is thick and the cotton backing and heaviness means it has never scooched on me at all.
I think I would have loved the rug, but Overstock or the courier that they chose to send it with "Lost it" and then there were no more available, once they figured out that it was lost. Extremely disappointed with Overstocks follow up and the loss of my rug :^(
I've had this rug for about 2 months now and I absolutely love this rug. I got it in purple. The purple is nice and dark. The rug itself is deep and soft and feels great under bare feet. Minimal pilling, and it's in my bedroom in front of the closet so it gets a good amount of traffic. The octopus is really pretty and detailed but doesn't overpower the rug. Once you notice it's there you're like, OH! That's fun! I've gotten lots of compliments on this rug and would absolutely recommend it.
This rug is falling apart, fibers are loose enough to roll on the surface after vacuuming. In addition I have emptied the vacuum canister three times today...I only have the 5 x 7 rug! If Overstock had a photo option, I would submit a picture of the rug as proof. DO NOT BUY.
This is a lovely rug that feels soft and durable. However, from the first day of use, it has been leaving a large amount of white powder residue on the floor beneath. It even creates dust throughout the room. After six months, our vacuum actually died from getting so clogged. After reading about nuLOOM products, it sounds like it's the glue from the faux silk breaking down.
