I looked at rugs for months before deciding on this one. I'm so happy with my decision. I ordered the 9 x 12 and it fits perfectly under my furniture. The colors are as pictured online and it is soft with nice cushion. I didn't use a rug pad.
It's difficult to find a very large area rug (12' x 18'). Overstock was the only site that offered any selection in this size. We used a thicker eco plush 1/4" felt rug pad with the rug and the result is a very luxurious feel. The rug is just perfect for our living room. Anyone who sees the rug comment on how striking it is. Definitely a good buy.
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.
