I am happy with this rug. It is as pictured. It's very thick and even more so with the thick pad that I am using with it. One thing worth mentioning is that in the larger sizes (mine is 9 X 12) the pattern is larger overall which means that the background color is also bigger overall so there are larger background areas between the pattern if that makes sense. Still, I'm happy and the colors are as pictured. There was a mild, not unpleasant, scent at first which has gone away in the month or so that I've had it. I've not experienced any shedding at all.
I had very limited options for a 9' x 12' rug for my family. Under $*, modern, easy to keep clean (children) and not too rough like a natural woven rug. This rug fit the bill, literally. And wow! When I unrolled it, I just fell in love with it. It just what we needed for our boring living room. With a decent mat underneath, it's just like any other indoor rug you would buy. Thanks to some trendy blogger I ran across, I was willing to give an indoor/outdoor rug a chance in my living room, and Overstock's quality and cost can't be beat any where else on the net or elsewhere.
Received this carpet last week. It is a beautiful almost cerulian, true blue (no green tones) muted with cream,gray, and taupe (not beige) with a tiny bit of navy accent yarns woven throughout, to give it the appearance of a "gently used" rug. The two longest sides are bound and each end (the short sides) is folded flat and sewn down with a fabric carpet tape as would be done in a very expensive rug. The knap is about 1/4 inch long, tightly woven, making the pile nearly impossible to penetrate to the backing with my finger. I have tile' floors and purchased a pad for hard surfaces. It will make the rug last longer and keep it from "creeping" from vacuuming. It really is a pretty and a very rich looking rug I highly recommend it. I purchased the 9' X 12' and it fits beautifully in my 15' X 18' living room.
