It is always a nervous gamble buying a big product online without being able to touch it or see it in person but this rug is amazing! The style gives it over 5 stars. For blue lovers- there are varying shades of teal, turquoise, navy, and purplish blue. The ivory sections have two types of threads- one is the "normal" shage thread and matches the same thread to the overstock " 8 by 10 cozy ivory shag rug"(i have this second product in my dining room adjacent to the room that has the sapphire/ivory rug and the transition is wonderful.) The second type of thread is highly reflective is is mingled in with the other ivory thread type. I am very happy with my purchase. I would recommend having a felt rug pad for hardwood floors or this rug wouldn't be as comfortable(reason for 4 star quality rating).
