  • Poor quality!
    Verified Purchase

    I have made many purchases from Overstock and usually things are good but this rug is really bad! It keeps having large pieces of thread come off it's not shedding it's unraveling. It's cheap, it's thin and it's really bad do not buy this one.....

  • Pretty but losing significant amount of threads
    Verified Purchase

    UPDATING my Review now that we've owned the rug for 6 weeks+. Unfortunately, the rug is continuing to lose threads and it's happening even more than before. It's a shame because it's very pretty, but it is a constant mess and not at all worth the money. I cannot recommend the rug and will not purchase another rug I can't first see in person to "test". It wasn't inexpensive and I'm very disappointed. I'm dropping it to a one-star. ***** The rug is very pretty. It's a shiny silver gray and the variation of different sized threads makes it attractive. However we have had it for a few weeks now and it won't stop shedding. At first, we thought there were just a few loose threads that were making their way out of the backing as it was getting broken in. But sadly, the shedding hasn't stopped or even slowed down. It's significant enough that we're having to pick up loose threads a few times every day. It's mostly the thinner threads, but the larger ones are shedding too. I will post an update if this improves, but at this stage I don't believe it will. Because of that, I would not recommend this rug. :(

  • Nice rug!

    Very happy with this purchase. The rug did not shed very much. It is shiny/ glossy looking and has lots of different gray colors in it.

  • Safavieh or Bust.
    Verified Purchase

    I'm a huge fan of safavieh and this rug was being purchased as a gift. When the rug arrived it was beautiful... but the texture of the rug was cord like. Not very soft at all. IT was very metallic almost giving the effect of silver. The pile was really long and it did not have that comfortable feel under foot. We returned this rug and purchased another rug from Safavieh, The Milan Shag Grey Rug. This rug being much softer, much more of the gray color we were looking for. You cannot beat Safavieh.. sometimes you just have to be patient to find the right one.

  • Not my cup of tea
    Verified Purchase

    I ordered this item and received quickly. I read the reviews on it and thought it would work great. The rug is a nice rug but not my cup of tea. It has a lot of sheen to it that is a bit too psychedelic for my taste. The color was a bit darker than I had anticipated as well. And although the sheen feels nice, the rug isn't that plush. I'll be returning the item but I do like the brand rug, just not this particular one.
