"How "blue" is this rug? It looks much more grey in the picture. Is it more of a steel color?"
Very happy with this rug. It is a beautiful shade of sea foam blue...

We always go to Overstock to buy the absolute best (and trend right) area rugs that are in the market. But one of our criteria has always been to be BELOW a certain price point. We tend to find that the more expensive stuff generally does not have the same quantity of reviews, and have been reticent to sometimes buy these more expensive items not 'knowing' what would show up (since we can't go see or touch it), but we are becoming much stronger believers in the higher-end stuff that Overstock sells as well. In this case, we purchased the Safavieh Handmade Mirage Modern Light Blue Wool/ Viscose Rug (8' x 10'). We were using it in a (more formal) kitchenette nook in our Florida home. (Tile under the rug). We were blown away by the arrival of this item. The ribbed texture / pattern was fantastic, and the color and fibers of the rug have a delicate shimmery property to them. (Not generic or cheap glitter or sequin shimmer however). The color is a dreamy, almost teal color...but much more muted than a straight or bold teal color. Though we always try to order and keep the size we need, sometimes we need to bind a rug to get into a space, and this rug was re-bound perfectly. It is not super thick, but has a nice pile and softness to it. It handles traffic and heavy objects on it well too. We probably vac it every couple weeks, and always comes back perfectly. Like anything silk (or silk like)-fiber based, based on the way you vac the grain of the fibers, it can change the appearance of the rug too. (re: darker or lighter based on what way you pull the vacuum over it.) Think we spent $500-$600 on it, but as mentioned, would not hesitate to consider a more expensive set of rugs from Overstock again. Like anything (and everything) we purchase from them, the timing of shipping (fast), strength of packaging (great) was a win-win for us. Obviously wish there were more reviews on all this other higher end stuff, but wanted to provide ours if you happen to run across this product and think it may be a good fit for your home too.Read More

Questions & Answers
The Safavieh Hand-knotted Mirage Light Blue Wool/ Viscose Rug has more of a grey tone. I've read a couple of reviews of the rug in different sizes and based on those reviews, it is more of a grey tone.
"what's the percentage of wool and viscose? what's the backing material and construction?"
Hello reviewz, this is close to 80% viscose and 20% wool. This is a loom knotted construction and is likely there is no backing. Have a great day!
