I am thrilled with this rug--it significantly exceeded my expectations--and looks so much more expensive than it is. I wanted to freshen up my Living Room so that it would look more modern, but warm. This rug did the trick and looks beautiful, high-end and chic. I wavered for a while before buying it, deterred by some of the negative comments (other reviewers reported an odor and off-gassing, creases in the rug since it is folded, rather than rolled, for shipping, and an "acrylic" feel when walking barefoot on the rug). I experienced none of those issues. There was a slight "new carpet" smell that quickly dissipated, the "creases" worked themselves out within a few days and the rug feels wonderful--soft and silky on bare feet. I also worried the rug might be too "shaggy" and look matted after being walked on. It doesn't and the pile bounces right back up--it is just the right height. I worried that at this price point, and being a synthetic fiber rug, it might look cheap. My worries were completely unfounded. It looks every bit as good as (and in many cases better than) rugs I have had costing many times more. As others have observed, the rug is made up of two different strands--a fuzzy thicker strand in light taupe and a thinner beige/off-white strand. This adds dimension to the rug and makes it more interesting than a uniform, single color rug. Don't hesitate to buy this rug!
This rug arrived quickly. It is true to size, true color (cream) soft, thick, and well made for being a synthetic rug. I am very happy with my purchase. It was exactly what was needed to complete my living room. Thank you Overstock.
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.
This rug is very beautiful and was exactly as I expected. I had ordered an smaller Savavieh one for another room several years ago so I was pretty sure it would be similar. The quality for the price is unsurpassed. It will shed (as all wool rugs do) for quite a long time but that's to be expected also. If you don't want a shedding rug, buy a synthetic that will not have the durability of a good wool rug. You won't be disappointed with this brand of rugs.
