I've had many great years with this rug. Fantastic quality for such an inexpensive rug. Very soft on the feet and not scratchy. I bought the Gold which is a soft Yellow and Ivory combo. It worked surprisingly well with my mid century modern furniture and helped give my bedroom an eclectic vibe.
I was skeptical when the 1st time see this rug's colour, but I really like the design. So, I ordered it anyway. Guess what? I'm glad I did it! It's gorgeous and matched with all colour and style in my living room. The maroon color not bright maroon, but soft maroon with gold accent and decorations. It's transfer my living room like a rich people house. :D Delivery? It's fast as always! Live overstock.com
The rug looks great! My style if French country and this rug fits in perfectly with my golds, reds, oranges, and Browns. The only thing to consider when buying this is how close to doors do you want it. Currently, the rug is near my back door and due to us coming in and out the blue along the edges is getting dirty. Wold plan at least a foot to two feet from a door.
1) COLORS OF RUG: Overstock provides the wrong colors for this rug, but I took the risk because a reviewer for another size of the "steel" color posted a photograph and I realized that either color would work in the room. I am concerned though that Overstock online customer service and the overstock website both misrepresent the colors of the rug. So, if you are buying the color "steel", be aware: the background is a medium grey, but the branches are by no means any shade of red, they are chocolate brown and the blossoms on the chocolate brown branches are not gold nor are they yellow, they are a nice muted celadon green. The other branches are a light taupe branch with a cream/offwhite/lightcamel blossom. 2) SHAPE OF RUG This rug was perfect for our rectangular living room because it provided a squared off reasonably sized seating area for two chairs a sofa and a bench and a coffee table that is now visually set off from the rest of the room -- basically allowing for a room within a room. 3)TRANSITIONAL STYLE: The combination of the warm brown and the cool grey and the neutral colors (and that little shot of green) allows the rug to be used to bring in both warm and cool tones (for us we are trying to bring greys into a room that has been mostly camel and orange and green). Also, it successfully, for us, bridged the gap between the mid-century style of our living room and the more traditional french farmhouse style dining area that is visible from the living room. 4) DELIVERY: The deliveryman failed to deliver the rug to the door even though I was home. He just knocked on the door and when I answered it waved to me as he got into his truck. He left the very large and heavy rug in the pouring rain. We hauled it into the garage to drive off. Luckily it was packed in several layers of plastic and the rug stayed dry. 5)QUALITY: it seems like a reasonable quality rug. We bought an 8x8 reversible rug pad from Overstock (we chose the thickest one available with felt on one side and latex on the other as we are using this on wood floors). Contrary to reviews there is no bad smell and the rug is flattening out nicely. Also, the rug comes with precise care instructions-- do not use a bagless vaccuum, try to sweep or use carpet sweeper, use a vacuum with beater brush on lowest setting so as not to disturb the nap. We are not seeing shedding. Because we couldn't be sure this was 9'9" square (in some places it was referred to as 9 foot square and some reviewers complained about inconsistent sizing) we bought a 8x8 square rug pad. This rug is on wood floors so we bought one from overstock with a rubber bottom to go near the floor and a felt top to go near the rug. It works well. All in all a beautiful result for a very reasonable price.
