this is a well-built carpet. It is more of a greenish gray than blue. The starburst accents really pop when the light hits the carpet.Read More
This rug is absolutely beautiful!!!!! It really brightened up my family room. The wool is very soft and the sunburst pattern is verrrrryyyyy different. The fabric is not wool it is ribbons that were sewn on by hand. The sunburst fabric does shed a bit, but not so much that it detracts from the overall view of the rug.Read More
Stunning Rug and excellent quality. Very heavy and substantial.Read More
So pretty, 3 D design that is devine.Read More
one of my favorite rugs at the lake house. the only neg is the little streamers from the starburst tend to come off the first few times vacumning but not enough to make a differenceRead More
While I LOVE the texture and design. I am shocked to see the stiches come off easily even with a vacum. The stiches come loose with a broom! or a gentle tug with the fingers. Now I have a bare spot amongst the brown splash. I have only had this rug opened for 1 month.Read More
Purchased the 8' x 11' size and this rug is high quality for the price. The rug is nothing short of being unique in design and the blends of color are simply beautiful! Please remember the blue background color is a slate blue, not the lighter blue as it seems in the picture. The rug is fairly thick and the woven colored bursts are as pictured in color and texture, and as described by others. I am so happy with this selection. Can't wait to purchase a coordinating rug for our living room area from Overstock! Thank you, Overstock.com.Read More
I liked this rug when I ordered it but wasn't completely "sold" on it - ordered it because the price was a great bargain. When I got it and actually placed it in my living room I found that i LOVED it - the rug was even better than expected - the bursts on the rug are actually raised on the rug which makes them stand out (kind of like a shag rug on the bursts) but very comfortable to walk on even barefoot. The color was great and I'm so very pleased. I absolutely recommend this rug :-)Read More
The colors are very calming and texture adds interest. Blue color has a greenish hue.Read More
The rug seemed to be of good quality and true to color. We simply did not like the look of the burst fibers. If they had been long and thin like typical shag carpet fibers we probably would have kept the rug, but they were not. In my opinion the burst material more closely resembles cut up pieces of shiny cloth or thin ribbon rather than actual shag fibers. I thought it made the rug look cheap and too casual for our space.Read More
