This was the first rug I have ordered from Overstock and I am VERY pleased. Shipping was really fast--like four days, and I ordered on an afternoon. Had been looking at similar ones at local stores and prices were 2x to 3x this amount. As I said, though, the color is definitely not charcoal. It's a great dark green that was perfect for our living room with its oak floors. Works well with our furniture which is sage and rust. We are using it without a rug pad although I may add one in the future (when our daughters run across it, it does move a little). Shedding is mild, and face it, wool rugs shed. Also, for anyone anxious about the pattern--it's not too busy at all, and doesn't "dominate" the space. I highly recommend it!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Definitely not charcoal. The dark areas are a dark green, kind of a forest green. Also has plenty of sage and gold and a little maroon-ish red.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is great. Rug is heavy and lies flat. There is some shedding, yes, but not anything usual.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good except for the color.
