We needed a large area rug for our New York apartment. This one is very nice and thick and has somewhat a dull color but in a good way. At first I was not pleased that the blue was more blue and less gray but have decided I like it now. It is very heavy in this size and was a little difficult to manage the weight and get it into place. We did not go for a rug pad and don't feel it needs one. Other reviewers said it would shed and smell funny. Both are true but not that bad. The smell was gone within a week. It continues to shed but nothing serious. All in all, it is a great rug and I am very happy with it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It is slightly more subdued in person and a little more blue in the background than I expected. Looks more gray blue on my computer screen but it is really just a light blue.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This rug comes from a high end carpet store that we recognized and is very good quality. It does shed a lot in the beginning tho.
