Even though my husband and I returned this rug, I'm giving it 2 stars. We returned it due to the color of the rug. The design is beautiful and the thickness of the rug is exceptional. When we rolled it out it was a great size, true to the 8x10 size we ordered, and extremely thick and soft. The only problem was the color, as it is advertised as a White/Black rug, it is anything but those 2 colors. The design on the rug is brown, and the rest is a brownish ivory. My husband did not like it as he thought it appeared "dirty", since the main color of the rug looks like brown mixed in with a very dark ivory. I didn't mind this as much, but since are living room is on the lighter side (off white walls, and lighter color furniture, etc) this did not go well as well. If you are going for a darker look in your room, heavy brown furniture, or accents, and darker walls, or the new dark turquoise walls that are in now, this rug would look beautiful. But as our focal rug in our living room this just didn't work since it was too dark and appeared dirty as my husband would say. After reading a few other reviews, when opening the packing we carefully cut through the heavy plastic that it came in, to make sure if we needed to return it we could do so. Tamy from Overstock.com's customer service responded to my email and was very helpful with our return. We did not have to pay for return shipping due to our dislike of the rug. I definitely continue to look at rugs on overstock to something more for our colors.
This Safavieh Shag ivory rug is gorgeous! It is a very thick shag rug. Excellent quality rug. I just love the Safavieh rugs! This one I have in my dining room.
A beautiful natural wool rug with thick shag.
I ordered this rug for my toddler as an area/play rug. It took a little while to arrive, but maybe because I was anxious for it to come. When it did arrive it was well packaged. This was important as I’ve received products from competitive sites and they came damaged or the packaging was destroyed and a mess. Upon unrolling the rug, I was a little surprised by the texture of the rug. I was expecting it to be a bit softer like a wool shag chair that I have in my room. This is a bit more coarse but still soft. I think it was just an assumption I made upon reading “New Zealand wool.” This is not a SUPER SOFT rug. It is durable, thick, cozy, and well made. The color is cream and a charcoal/brownish color. Just as is in picture. My son was so excited to play on this rug. He absolutely loves it!!! The main complaint I have about this rug is that it sheds a lot and the wool gets everywhere. Often times I am pulling strands of wool off my tongue or off my sons tongue. It is very thick, and my door does not go over it so I will have to move it away from the door but that is what I was looking for. A very padded rug. I don’t think I would purchase this rug again because the fact the hair gets everywhere I’ve even found it in glasses of water I keep by my bedside. It’s uncomfortable and I’m thinking of moving out of the room and into the living room. What a bummer. Hoping the shedding won’t be so bad once I’ve had it for a while.
This is a great modern shag rug, but it's most definitely not white as the description says. I'd say it's more of a light brown. Also, the shag is pretty long. Other than that it's a cool rug.
I'm not sure I would have bought this rug had I been able to see it in person ahead of time - it's a lot more of a 'shag' than I was looking for and it doesn't have a very dense pile, which the photo deceptively makes it appear to have. However, I do actually like it and think it looks great in our new space! The white is pleasant - not stark bright white or a dirty looking cream/beige but more of an unbleached cotton white. If you want beige, this is not for you - it's definitely white. But it doesn't get dirty as quickly as a bright white would. The gray is also a true gray - not brown or blue. The subtle pattern also adds character without overpowering the room. So far there hasn't been much shedding, but it's a wool shag so I'm sure there will be at least some over time. *Update* - this thing definitely sheds, big time! It's only been a couple weeks so we'll see how it holds up over time and if the shedding starts to taper off or not. Oddly, the shedding has been confined to the rug-area and balls of fluff haven't found their way through the rest of the house like other rugs have before.. I'm not sure why that is but I guess it's a positive thing?
Very nice thick, soft rug. the color is very cream, not the soft beige from the other rug we ended up with. The design is dark brown. Very beautiful rug nonetheless.
I have the 9x12 version of this in my bedroom.The design is quite nice and it's my first ever wool rug (much less a hand-tufted one), but I was unprepared for the level of shedding. The shedding is INSANE. I've actually used a Furminator brush on this rug and the amount of loose fibers I got from that exercise appeared to be ENDLESS. If you get this, I recommend using it in a low-traffic area like a bedroom -- not an entryway, living room, hallway. The loose fibers WILL fill up your vacuum canister. And you WILL be vacuuming or dealing with loose fibers ALL THE TIME. I've only had it for a month so I don't know if this is one of those rugs that "eventually stops shedding", but let's hope so. Because of the shedding, it's not a rug I would tell my friends to run out and buy ... but I must give it at least 3 stars for its beauty and style. It does feel luxurious to walk on.
QUALITY CLASSIC SHAG RUG. ELEVATES A SETTING!
Received the Safavieh Wool Rug in perfect condition. The color is more beige/brown rather than white/black. It goes well with our hardwood floor. If you're looking for white/black...this is not the color.
Gorgeous rug! We use this in an office with the dark wood furnishings and it looked quite classy. Looks like a traditional moroccan style, but is kind of creamy colored.
This wool rug is soft and luxurious even without a pad under it although I plan to get one. It does shed but that is to be expected with the deep pile. The grey pattern is darker than I expected but overall the color and pattern are very pleasing. I love it and could not be more pleased with both the product and the price. Highly recommend!
I was initially very unsure I'd be happy with this rug after ordering, but once we got it set up and let it lay out for a couple days, I was in love. This style+print is very popular in the trendy millennial Nordic sphere. You see rugs like this cropping up everywhere, and some turn out to be pretty cheap quality but still with a hefty price tag. This brand is committed to quality though, and it is apparent in this rug. I can see it lasting for many years with proper care. The color is great, just be wary of dirty feet or shoes walking on it, because it will collect the dirt. The brown in the design isn't too obviously brown, and complements our color scheme well. This one is a great choice for warmer-toned decor. It's still shedding a lot of little fuzzies, but I imagine after a few more vacuums this will significantly decrease. Overall, very happy with this rug!
I just received the Safavieh Hand-Tufted beni ourain-style wool rug looks like the real thing, and is made of real wool. Shaggy and soft, there is some "release" of wool but nothing that a quick vacuum can't take care of. Very happy with this purchase.
Love the style of this thick, plus rug! Great design and although photos appear to depict a more ivory background, I prefer the fact that it is actually more of a flecked oatmeal color...much better for high traffic areas. Photo added of the actual rug close-up to show background. Very pleased with purchase!
the reviewer who said this rug is more oatmeal than ivory is absolutely right. but that's why i like it. it's near my entryway and i have two kids and two dogs. oatmeal is a perfect color to hide the dirt. score. it's also truly shaggy and feels fantastic on bare feet. yes it sheds but duh. it's wool shag, so deal. this rug is a steal at this price, it's exactly what i wanted to go with my texture-and pattern-driven neutral colored eclectic living room.
Pictures are accurate. Color is a bit of a cream. Very soft and plush- looks expensive!
I love this rug, a nice shag length, soft underfoot, great color and design
This is not black and white (as you can see from the pictures). The black is dark gray or dark brown depending on the lighting and the "white" is mottled tan and cream. I am extremely pleased with it as it will hide dirt much better than white. It does shed, but all rugs shed at first. It's quite soft and fluffy. I've had it for about a monch and am extremely pleased with this purchase. I'm not sure how it will clean up from a spill, but there's only adults and a well behaved dog in the house so it works for me.
I really love this rug! It's super soft and feels great to walk on. It's fluffier than I thought it would be (which was great) and I really like the soft wool. The color is a natural cream color, with a brown/black-ish design. Love the Moroccan print - it looks great in the bedroom. Also, so happy to find a square rug in this size to fit my room. I highly recommend.
