      This area rug arrived on time and I was pleased when I unrolled it. It's very "chocolatey" and that's what I was hoping for. I was a bit concerned about the color after noticing the description said something about navy undertones or something like that, but in my home with my lighting, a rich, deep chocolate color is all that shows. I was also concerned after reading other reviews of other rugs that there would be shedding, but there has been none; nor has there been a bad smell that other rug reviewers noticed with other rugs. My other concern was that there was no review for this rug so I only had instinct and about a month of careful research to go on. I'm very pleased and I assume the rug will hold up well over time. If there is one thing that is a bit negative, it's that the rug feels weird on bare feet. Sort of stiff but I'm sure that's the manmade material and it's not as if it slices your feet like tiny knives when you walk on it :) just feels kind of funny. I'm very happy with this rug!

    • Love the rug but the smell is KILLING me!
      Verified Purchase

      I love how this rug looks and feels. It is the perfect size for my space, and the shag is really cool. However, ever since I unrolled it onto the floor there has been this STRONG chemical odor that has been filling my condo. At first I didn't think too much of it, but then that night before bed I was struck with quite severe nausea and a horrible headache. I have since googled this issue, and apparently it is common for "cheaper" rugs made of synthetic materials to emit chemicals and toxins including formaldehyde! Needless to say, this is NOT what I thought I was getting into when I bought this rug! It has now been over a week and I have had fans running and all the windows open in my condo the entire time. The smell has STILL not been completely aired out. I really don't know what to do. The smell is making me sick (despite having the windows open and fans on) but I love the look of the rug. So, purchase as your own risk! Another reviewer said the smell did not bother her, maybe they're not all shipped in the condition that mine was. But if you get a rug that emits toxins into your home, good luck dealing with it! It has NOT been fun, and now what I expected for four hundred dollars!!

    • Looks better in the picture for sure.

      This rug is pretty but not very comfortable to the feet. The rug pad is very thin. The fabric is more like its glued down and not woven into it onto the pad so they come off quite a bit. The fabric is more of a satiny shiny material more than your typical rug material and not very thick. I'm getting very leery of making purchases on overstock anymore. I'm just glad the rug wasn't more expensive. I would've definitely sent it back. I'll continue to search for a rug to replace it.

      This rug is extremely soft and luxurious. We couldn't be happier with this purchase. Highly recommended!

      Don't waste your money on this. After weeks of this rug constantly shedding I had to return it to overstock. This was by far one of the worst rugs I have ever purchased and not worth the money.

    • Just AWFUL
      Verified Purchase

      I am sending this back. I have spent all day, everyday sweeping up the loose thread and fiber. If I could give zero stars I would have. I waited for this to arrive and spent *$ and it's a horrible product!

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "We have had this rug for less than 60 days. Every time we walk through the room, there are pieces of the rug all over the floor. This morning, we noticed a huge bald spot in the rug where all of the shag has come out. The rug is glued together! I would DEFINITELY NOT recommend this rug to anyone!!!"

      • A:

        Hello Jennifer G., you will be contacted by Customer Care. Have a great day.

      • A:

        As I rolled this rug to wrap for shipping, the glue that holds the shag to the base was cracking off and floating around on the rug. I'm astounded at the poor quality of the product. I've never experienced anything like it.
