    • Not Quite What I Expected but It Will Work
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 6' x 9' - Blue/Beige

      The rug arrived quickly and in good condition. The price was great. The rug seems to be of good quality, after a month of use. Unfortunately, the colors and the pattern on the rug that was delivered to me are much different than the colors of the rug in the pictures online. The rug was originally purchased to help add some color (along with other accents) to a stark white room in a rental home. It does not serve that purpose but it does work in another room. First and foremost, as many reviews have indicted, this rug sheds excessively. I have to vacuum tufts (clumps) from the rug and the surrounding area every 2-3 days. I have a high quality vacuum cleaner and I empty three canisters each time I vacuum this 6x9 rug. The rug has been hand-brushed several times and it still sheds excessively after one month of use. If you do not want to deal with cleaning up constant shedding, then I do not recommend buying this rug. The online description and pictures indicated that the rug had gold in the colors. The blue in the online photo was also rich. There is no gold in the rug I received. Instead, the rug that was delivered is predominately soft, muted powder blue with a light beige/sand color near the border. Other reviews have listed the colors as bolder than expected. The rug I received is quite the opposite. However, it is blue and beige, which is how the item title is listed. Additionally, the pattern in the rug I received does not resemble the online photo representation. The pattern in my rug is definitely not the same as the rug shown in the picture. The pattern is much less detailed and it contains fewer accent colors. With all of that said, what I received is a thick, good quality, area rug. It seems durable (it holds up to vacuuming three times weekly due to the shedding) and it is attractive in its own right. It simply was not what was expected from the online description and other reviews. Because the gold and other accent colors that are present in the online photo were not present in the rug that was shipped, it did not work well in the room for which it was originally purchased. Rather than try to return such a large, bulky item, it was decided that the rug would go in another room instead. It fits in well in its secondary location, luckily. I do like this rug even if it did not work for its intended purpose. Though, I have learned my lesson. I will stick to buying rugs that I can view in person.

    • I don't love the color!
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 2'3" x 12' - Green/Gold

      I read the customer reviews and the detailed product info regarding this rug before purchasing. Not sure I agree with the color description; sage green is the predominant color, it is inaccurate to say that it has a gold border because the gold just melts into the green. Other colors in this rug are; moss green, rust, several shades of taupe, brown and muted tones of gold. It is a thick, high quality and well made rug but I'd hoped for a slightly different coloration. As many other OS.com customers seem to do I will keep this rug and use it in the intended area. It doesn't make sense to return a 22lb rug and pay the return shipping. As Tim Gunn from Project Runway says: "Make it work"! One final note; when reviewing a product please try to be as specific as possible about the colors and quality. Other customers depend on these reviews!

    • Great Value

      Option: 8'3" x 11' - Blue/Beige

      I've been looking for a rug for my living room for months and could not find one I liked enough to commit to for the price. I took a bit of gamble on this one, being unable to see the true colors on the monitor, but I am not disappointed in the least. The rug is Safavieh HG811B-9, and all of the photos of it I found online show the colors as lighter than they truly are. The background is a teal-blue, darker than in the photo. The areas that appear gold are more beige, but still very pretty. The design also contains some browns, darker and lighter olive green, and terra cotta/rust. The overall look of the rug is not at all overpowering, but there is definitely color to it. Some of the other options I considered to be "safer" would have looked a little bland I think. I have neutral walls and olive green sofas, but I plan to replace them within a year or two and wanted something that would look nice with different upholstery. I think this rug would look lovely with any neutral furniture (light, white, dark, brown, tan). The pile of this rug is plush and deep and feels wonderful on my bare feet. I bought a pad to go with it, and it's very comfortable to lie on. It's really upgraded our living room. No regrets about this purchase, and I'm really happy with the value.

    • Heritage wool rug
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 2'3" x 8' - Blue/Beige | 6' x 9' - Blue/Beige

      This rug is a winner! My hand-tufted Heritage wool rug arrived today and I was extremely pleased with it. The colors are beautiful. The blue is a soft teal blue,the browns are a soft caramel color and the ivory is a creamy beige. . This makes for a beautiful combination. I was so pleased I immediately ordered the runner to go with it. The rug goes perfect with the pearl-white silk draperies I order from Overstock. My draperies and my rug look very expensive and high quality. I matched this rug and draperies to an antique tapestry I have had for many years. Overstock gives you true value for your money. I will definitely be shopping again with the "O", especially for rugs!

    • Luxurious, elegant, versatile, subtle oriental
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 2'3" x 20' - Green/Gold

      I had just returned a wool oriental runner with almost garish coloring and medium thickness, choosing to try this runner based on the other reviews that the colors were muted. Well worth the cost of the return shipping of the garish one, this runner complements my adjacent room-sized wool oriental, even with a different color palette; the subtlety of the colors are key. This is a top quality wool rug. It does have an interesting palette of golds, greens and dusty lavender. Do get a good quality rug pad for underneath for plushness and longevity of the rug.

      I purchased the Safavieh Handmade Heritage. .. years ago and it still looks like new, and I never need to have it cleaned just vacuumed. I highly recommend this rug and the price was great.

      This Heritage Timeless Traditional Green and Gold wool rug is very nice. The sizing and thickness were as described. The color is deeper and not as bright.

    • Squishy!
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 7'6" x 9'6" - Blue/Beige

      Things I love: 1) Super-fast shipping, at my house and on my floor the second day after placing the order. 2) Beautiful! The colors are lovely and go perfectly with the golds and aquas of my home, with a little rust-color thrown in for interest. (As another reviewer mentioned, the blue does have a bit of "turquoise" to it, which is exactly right for my home.) The colors are subtle and overall the rug is pale, definitely lighter than my other rugs, which is also what I wanted. Soft gold and the blue background is uneven in tone, making it look subtle and watercolor-like, really nice. Looks good against the darker hardwood floors. 3) The best part: it's thick and squishy, and feels luxurious under bare feet. I did not buy a pad to go under it. I don't think it needs it. My house is full of inexpensive rugs (I have pets) and this is by far the most rich, luxurious and thick one I've ever found. It's hard to find larger sizes in this price range. I'll definitely use Overstock again. Thank you so much!

      The hand spun Heritage Wool rug is true to color and extremely soft. The pile was even thicker than I expected. At Overstock the price is right and the cost of shipping at just a dollar - unbelievable. Delivery was was very quick as well. I am a please customer!

    • It sheds!
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 8'3" x 11' - Blue/Beige

      Upon first glance, this rug was better than i had expected. the colors are a beautiful blueish teal, with cream, taupe, and a dusty purple accent. The pattern is magnificent. The quality is also great. It is a very thick wool and we didn't need to keep the carpet pad we purchased with this, as it is so thick and sturdy it doesn't slide around on our hardwood floors. I would give this carpet 5 out of 5 stars, until we started noticing that it sheds, and I mean SHEDS. If you sit on the carpet or place anything on it, it is covered in balls of wool. My floors are covered in wool pieces and I have to vacuum everyday. The couch and other furniture are covered in wool as well. At first, I thought it was shedding loose wool strands, and would stop once the loose ones fell out, but it has been almost 3 weeks and it still is shedding such a ridiculous amount that I fear within a few months my carpet is going to start having bald spots. There will be nothing left to it. I am so disappointed in this, because on the surface it is everything I wanted. Its beautiful but not worth the money if all shed like this. It must be on Overstock because of this defect.

    • COLOR!
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 7'6" x 9'6" - Blue/Beige

      Most important: the colors in this beauty are a very cool blue/gray/green with a true beige and NOT the GOLD & AQUA shown in my monitor. Lesser colors include a rosy terra cotta and lt olive. So be warned....cool blue tones and beige. Otherwise, the quality is even nicer than I had expected. Consistant pile, good edges, square construction, great backing, no odor. Since it costs very little to send it back, go ahead, buy one and lay it out on your floor. I would compare this rug favorably to a 'Specialty Store' and at less than 25%, even on sale! Love it!

    • bright tourqoiuse blue color
      Option: 2' x 3' - Blue/Beige

      I'm glad I followed advice from Overstock.com customers and ordered the 2X3 size to see first hand what the colors looked like. The bright tourqouise blue was over powering for what I wanted in my den decor. I'm looking for an ice blue shade, so I am returning the 2X3 sample I bought. The shipping is $7 to return the small rug, so I feel it is well worth ordering the small size instead of having a huge rug to return. From many decorating magazines and store catelogs I can tell tthat peacock and tourqouise "in" colors, so this rug will probably be fabulous in someone's home.

    • Hand-spun Heritage Wool Rug
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 9'6" x 13'6" - Green/Gold

      I read the reviews on this rug after I had made my purchase. I was afraid it would shed; it did not. I was afraid the color would be horrible; it is beautiful. The carpet is plush and will last a lifetime. It does not stain easily and does not show every little bit of dust or dirt. It is the first thing you see when you enter my foyer and I love it. The green is drab, yes, but for me that works perfectly. I did not want a bright green rug. I would not recommend this to a friend, as I want to be the only person with this beautiful rug.

    • ANOTHER GREAT RUG
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 2'3" x 14' - Blue/Beige | 2'3" x 8' - Blue/Beige | 8'3" x 11' - Blue/Beige

      I received this rug three days after I purchased it... It is of a great quality, much, much better than pictured. The collors are true to the picture, however more muted. I had made a lot of research before purchasing this rug and all the other rugs I bought from Overstock. One could pay at least three times more for the same rug, and I have included the online retailers in here... This is an amazing bargain! If you do your homework before you buy, you won¿t be disappointed!

    • Great rug, but make sure it's the color you want
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 3' x 5' - Green/Gold

      This is the second rug I've ordered from Overstock.com, so I knew the quality would be excellent. The color is just what I was looking for, so no problem there. The negative reviews are the result the difference between what you see at the website and what you receive. For whatever reason, the photo is VERY bright, almost florescent. But this isn't a bright rug--it's very muted. The green is sage-y and in indirect light it can look almost pale blue-gray. It does have rust and dull gold accents. If you're looking for a big splash of color, this rug won't give you that. But if you're looking for subtle shades that won't jump out at you, it's a great choice. Also, I haven't had any problem with shedding or fuzz from either rug. Vacuuming for the first time didn't result in much fuzz either.

    • Very pleased
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 8'3" x 11' - Blue/Beige

      So, as stated, I was very happy with the colors of this rug. One concern I had about ordering online was that it would appear as gold/orangeish as the pic. It is not this color. The areas that appear gold are a soft tan color. The contrast with the design and other colors is perfect. The design is pleasant and interesting, but not overbearing. The blue is not too pastel-like, but soft and elegant. It would be great with neutral, muted or pastel color palettes in a room. Very nice. I would love to be able to add a photo of this on my living room floor, but I cannot. It really warms up the space, though and look great. It IS shedding and I will be vaccuming to get rid of that,but as long as it eventually goes away, this is a great value for the price. I am quite pleased.

      I bought two of these rugs to place on either side of the bed in a large master bedroom. I'd already bought the same rug in a 10x14 size for the rest of the master bedroom. The colors are lovely, and though the name of the runner rug is exactly the same as the 10x14, the pattern is not exactly the same. The colors are the same, though, so they look very nice in the same room. Just a little contrast in the pattern.
