If you are not aware that when you buy a wool carpet you are going to have fiber fallout, you will hate this rug. It takes years before all the fuzz balls and fibers come out of a wool carpet. I dump about four containers of fiber from my vacuum every time I vacuum. In the picture it appears more gold than blue but the carpet is indeed blue, as described. It was not the shade blue I was hoping for but I love it. It is (according to the Crayola Company) something like midnight blue, but a bit more gray. It is beautiful and I took the piece of furniture I wanted it to go with out of the room. The size is gigantic and worth the price. I had considered an acrylic rug the same size and same price but I thought wool should wear better. It is also very soft! I do not have a carpet pad under it.
I needed an oriental rug to place in my new den. Since the floor is wood and I have partial wood panels on the walls, I knew I wanted to lighten up the floor. This rug looks better than the picture! It has a beige/yellow center, with a border containing a dusty blue. The blue is so subtle it would go with anything. It is absolutely gorgeous. This is the third rug I have bought from Overstock, and I recommend them without reservation. And they ship VERY quickly, so no waiting around for delivery. Way to go, Overstock!
Ordered this for our family room. Needed to replace a 9 x 13 rug that (a) was never really big enough for the room and (b) had developed a horrendous stench from disintegrating latex backing. Anyway -- the new 12 x 15 rug arrived promptly. It was delivered folded, and MAN, it is h e a v y. This isn't a one-person job! My husband and I were shot after getting it situated and getting all the furniture back in place. The colors are really muted with what I would consider "cooler" tones. There's a bit of warmish gold mixed in, but a taupe-y, green-y beige is really dominant. The red tone doesn't QUITE match the red accessories that we have in the room, but those are easy enough to replace. I'm very pleased, and I know the rich yet neutral colors will be very versatile over time when we eventually replace our upholstered pieces.
These rugs are heavy and indestructible in my animal loving home which contains 2 large cats and a very large dog. Messes clean up easily. These rugs retain their color. I have two and love them both.
