Not unlike everyone else, I was very nervous about ordering a rug by just looking at it on the computer screen, and then reading the specs. I found the reviews by others most helpful. It helped that customers would talk about color of the product as opposed to seeing it on screen, then also weight, feel, and whether or not it would shed. After all that, we got a really great rug! The colors are just what I expected, the quality is very nice, and it really doesn't shed to speak of at all! We are very pleased and will definitely trust purchasing another rug (with all your help too) at Overstock. And . . We have gotten so many compliments on it too!
