Finally, a rug that works! It has been my experience that Overstock's limited descriptions and photos as well as their failure to respond to questions about specific items in a timely fashion or at all made it difficult to determine if certain rugs would fit my need. However, having seen the quality as well as the full descriptions and copious photos of the 1800getarug area rugs on Overstock I decided to take another chance and was glad I did. This is a lovely rug with a perfect height nap that fits nicely under the mahogany doors in my breakfast room. While the rug colors are warmer than depicted in the pictures they still work because there is an abundance of cool and warm hues in the rug design. So whether a room is painted a warm or cool color, this rug would fit well. I'm no expert but the 1800getarug items on Overstock seem to be consistently better quality. It was delivered folded up into a small rectangle but when I laid it out, it lay flat immediately. There were no creases, no folds, unpleasant odors, tears or breaks in the weave, no loose fibers, and the underside of the rug has no flaws that I could detect. In fact it could almost be reversed, the design is that neatly woven. It contains no latex which I prefer and the designs in the rug are sharp and vivid. In all, I am very pleased.
This rug is lovely and looks just like the photo. A couple of things to think about, though. One is that the rug isn't very straight -- not uncommon in hand-made rugs. The other is that you should look at the bottom of the rug in the photo -- to see how the color changes for the last 2 feet or so. A little distracting but still very pretty.
I purchased this rug for our entryway and I am so pleased with how it turned out. The colors are beautiful. They are slighted muted tones. This rug is thin so you will need a rug pad with it. You won't be disappointed with this rug!
I love this rug. The quality of the workmanship and wool is lovely. I love that it is dyed with vegetable dye like the old way of doing things. The only negative is that there is an area at each corner that looks as if the color either wasn't finished or the dye kind of bled. It is still quite beautiful and I will be showing it in my bedroom with pride. And it might be the nature of the carpet. It is definitely NOT distracting from the beauty of the piece.
