The rug is beautiful, quality rug. However the blue is more like a teal, not what I had expected but it will work. I would definitely recommend this product. The UPS guy did say it was the heaviest item he has ever delivered in the 10 years he has worked there.
We shopped area rugs in Houston, TX at various locations. Prices varied from around $6.5K in the regular furniture stores like Gallery Furniture or High Fashion to around $3K in various import and wholesale warehouses along Harwin Dr. Most of the cheaper imports were from China (for wool rugs) or from Turkey and the Middle East (for synthetic materials). Everything seemed extremely overpriced, and the selection was limited and difficult to browse. We were shopping for 3 large rugs and hoped that this would give us some negotiating leverage and a substantial discount, but none of these hopes materialized. Only one Chinese salesman was willing to give us a 10% discount on a 6K order. The sticker shock made us try searching online and this is how we came upon the rugs at Overstock.com. We were apprehensive about buying a rug without having seen or touched it in person but after seeing and feeling so many other rugs in the furniture stores we were more comfortable with the rug terminology (e.g. hand-tuffed, etc.) and hence a bit more inclined to rely on the online description. We ordered 3 large rugs for the price of 1 small rug from the furniture store and today we received the first one via Fedex ground. It was delivered to our front porch, nicely packaged and clean. On first look the product looks amazing. It is thick, good quality wool, premium quality compared to what we saw selling for 6K or more in the retail stores. The colors look good, the material is excellent. In the interest of full disclosure, the colors do look slightly more muted than in the online picture, but I actually like it more this way. I hope the rest of our order turns out to be just as successful. If it does, Overstock.com will certainly be #1 on our list for future purchases of area rugs. I will post updates, but at this point we are happy customers.
It has filled a vacuum canister each time for the last 10 vacuumings, I certainly hope this ends before all the fibers are gone. So far it is holding up and seems to gradually shedding less but I have never had a rug shed like this. That being said it is still good quality for the price so far. It resists moisture and cleans up well with the messings of several small children to contend with.
The rug arrived quickly and was well packed. The colors are very close to the image although the gold color seemed more muted..It is very heavy and took 3 of us to set it up. It is a beautiful rug and very thick. Feels good under your feet. I would have given it 5 stars but it sheds..It sheds ALOT.. We have had it for 45 days and it is still putting out fibers that seem to spread all over the house..In one day I vacuumed the rug 10 times and it feeled the canister 10 times..It seems to be getting better now..I have read that it can take 3-4 months before wool rugs will stop shedding...Not sure I would recommend it to a friend because of the shedding...
