I refused to believe the reviews that said the colors were off, they were more muted than the picture describes, and when I opened it, I felt it was even more muted than I might have imagined. The good news is I love it, but I was totally shocked by how far off from the image it really was. So, while I am delighted, ultimately, I understand if other customers are disappointed and do not find a way for the rug to fit their color scheme. I was disappointed that, only after placing the order, I learned the produce was hand-tufted. Many other Safavieh rugs on Overstock announce they are hand-tufted. This one did not. I had done a lot of research that led me to believe I did not want a hand-tufted rug because of the smell of the glue on the backing. However, after placing the order, it then popped up that it was hand-tufted. If some descriptions of other rugs announce that they are hand-tufted, then one would assume that one that does not would not, in fact, turn out to be hand-tufted. It remains to be seen if the smell diminishes. In terms of quality, it seems perhaps less good than the other rug I bought from the Anatolia collection from Safavieh, also on Overstock. com, Ancestral Indian Tree, but I am hoping it will be as beautiful long term as the colors would encourage one to hope it will be.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Far from accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Beautiful rug, expensive looking, great quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not accurate in terms of color and construction--hand-tufted can be a real pain
