I was VERY skeptical buying a rug online. I am very happy with it. It's plush and the colors are very similar to the picture although perhaps not as muted. The blue is a little brighter but lovely. It smelled a little like chemicals for the first few hours but that went away quickly. Compared to other rugs I saw in person at nice rug stores I feel like we got an amazing deal. I've ordered 4 other rugs from Overstock.
