Based on the reviews, and previous experience with Overstock, I was pretty sure I would not be disappointed. But this rug far exceeds my hopes. The size was perfect- an exact 5x8. The double layer of plastic wrapping kept it clean during delivery. There was zero odor when we unwrapped it. Also no stray threads- and it doesn't appear as though it is going to shed- or if so, it seems it might be minimal. I had some leeway when it came to color matching, so if the colors were brighter or darker, or the colors a shade or two off from the image on the monitor it really wasn't going to be an issue. I guess if you had to match another item exactly then buying a rug online might not work out. All I can say is the colors on this rug were pretty true to what the monitor showed, they seem really saturated, rich and vibrant without being harsh. The texture is soft and welcoming, very nice feel underfoot. It just looks great. This one is in an alcove at a dormer window. We also purchased a larger rug (for the main part of the bedroom) that had the same name/description, but I could see online the pattern and colors are different. I was unsure how they would look in the same room, but took a chance. Shouldn't have worried; they complement each other well in the set up of the bedroom.
