First of all if you love turquoise / teal as much as I do, you will go nuts over this rug. Wasn't exactly sure what to expect, because the only wool rug I currently have is an authentic oriental rug and a very traditional style. I love the design on this very much and I had a vision of buying one of the other turquoise dip dyed rugs for under my king size bed in the 9 x 12 size and this one to put in the sitting area/dressing area of my master bedroom. I'm so glad I took a chance on this combination (pictures below) because not only are these rugs of high-quality they are a true true teal which is so hard to find. I'm also a painter and an artist so I love the fact that these are not perfect and have a very painterly feel to them it's a very unique combination in a rug that will give you that extra Something. Please keep in mind that the background also isn't white, it's a very off-white almost cream kind of color. I personally would have preferred a true white background but after living with this rug for a short while I have come to appreciate the natural off-white tone as my linen curtains have seem to kind of say to that color as well so unintentionally they end up going very well together . There are a few very minimal dark spots that other reviewer's had commented on but that just goes with the natural painting/dying process. Anyone can see that, and it's not a defect so reviewers that say this as a problem I don't think understand the handmade nature of something that is painted. But it is good to point out as there are maybe two specs like that on my whole 8 x 10 rug. Not something you notice right away at all and again gives it that handmade authentic feeling. Love this rug so much I ended up buying a second one in a different pattern to complete the master bedroom and I'm so happy I did!
The colors are a sage green/grey, a beautiful rust red, cream, warm gold, and deep brown accent lines around various of the design elements. Ordered the 9' x 12' and it instantly made the room look larger, despite the fact that it is patterned. There is some mild out gassing which is already dispersing even though I can't open the windows--wildfires in Northern California. There is no pilling apparent as was the case with previous wool rugs I've ordered. This is the sixth higher-end wool rug I've ordered from Overstock and I've been very pleased every time.
