      Option: 7'6" x 9'6" - Silver/Blue

      Bought this rug in gray, and am very happy with it. The color is a charcoal gray, fairly dark and rich in color (not a light gray or silver). The octopus' tentacles are more ivory than white, with bits of faux silk woven into them. The gray appears to be just wool fibers with no faux silk in them. The pile height is great (0.75), and the rug is very plush.I was very particular about rug shopping with respect to pile height, because I wanted a rug that was soft underfoot and durable. I am very happy with this purchase, and the quality of the rug is excellent for the price. The purple version also looks like it would've been a really nice color option.

      First the pros: • The rug is beautiful! I chose the turquoise which helps brighten up an apartment with unfortunate taupe-y beige walls. • It is a lovely soft wool/faux silk and reasonably thick, but I think I want to add a rug pad. • Its aesthetics and "feel" are why I am giving it 4 stars despite the flaws in my cons section. The Cons: I• I'm going to be picky and note for you that it is NOT a rectangle as one of the short sides is a full inch shorter than the other! • It is NOT, in fact 7'6" x 9'6" but a couple inches smaller all around. While this sounds like not so much but when you do the math is actually 2 square feet smaller, which is somewhat noticeable. (Also since it is categorized as 8' x 10' if that is really the size you need, this is not the rug for you.) • The quality of the edging finish is not so good. It is a bit loose and makes me wonder how long it will last. (If you have pets which may paw at the rug, again this might not be a great choice for you) The Neutral • It sheds, as would be expected with a wool rug for its entire life. I just got a new shark vacuum and filled the canister twice with turquoise fuzz! I should note also that I also filled the canister once with purple fuzz from a 6' x 6' Alliyah scroll rug I bought from overstock about 7 years ago! Point being, if you want a nice warm soft plush wool rug rather that some of the polypropylene rugs that often look cheesy, expect the fuzz.

    • Best rug ever!
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 7'6" x 9'6" - Plum

      I bought the plum and it is darker than I expected (but the "color" is exactly right, it's just dark, like very saturated) but honestly it just makes it look more 'quality', as well as making the pattern REALLY pop. Because it is so dark, it looks much better freshly vaccumed and/or avoiding tracking dust and dirt all over it. I have to admit it's been filling up my vacuum like crazy but I've had it for a few months now and the shedding is finally calming down. I vacuum once a week. Speaking of cats, it does not show cat hair too much (fur in this case being black white and grey) and has held up well with two cats kneading it with their claws periodically. The silk comes out once in awhile due to the cats but for the most part it still visually appears unharmed. The wool, if the catchs catch it correctly, sometimes looks a bit knappy but I just use scissors to snip the 1-2mm of wool which is sticking up a bit too high. It still looks brand new, because it is a very, very dense rug. In my opinion there is NO reason you should need a rug mat underneath. The pile is thick and the cotton backing and heaviness means it has never scooched on me at all.

    • Awesome rug

      got this in grey. it has a very nice, inch-thick pile and almost doesn't need a mat. the pattern is off beat and looks great at the beach. everyone loves it, always gets comments. exceptional quality for the price. thought about hanging it on the wall, it looks that good. all new rugs shed, a few months of shedding is fixed with regular vacuuming. shows no signs of traffic or normal usage - the fiber blend feels

      We love this rug. Had it for years. High quality wool and "faux silk", but, honestly, is great quality & feels great on your feet. Heavy rug, great nap. Color was exactly as promised & shown (we got the blue) and the octopus graphics are gorgeous and not cheap looking. Yet, subtle - as we have under/around our sectional seating. Easy to spot clean as well as carpet shampoo. A bit of fading after 5+ years of having it where the sun consistently hits it.

      Option: 5' x 8' - Navy

      This wool rug sheds a lot. I vacuum it 1x week to keep it looking good. I purchased the navy blue and b/c it is a dark, solid color, it does show lint and dirt quickly. Still, I have it in my home office and love it. I don't think it would be great for a high traffic area or a room with lots of kids or pets.

      This is a beautiful rug. It's way better quality than I expected. The weave is lush and packed and the color is pretty. I got the natural color. My only regret is that I didn't buy the larger sized rug.

      LOVE this rug. color is perfect. incredibly plush underfoot. like to just lay on it because so comfy. BEWARE - this is wool and sheds just like wool. Not a problem if you know in advance that all wool rugs will shed

      This was a wonderful rug. The pile is tight and thick. It is in our bathroom and has taken some abuse to include toothpaste, mouthwash and other products. The color stayed true and the pile thick. Yes it had a period of pilling which is to be expected with all wool rugs. Under foot, it is soft and luxurious. We would recommend this rug to anyone who wants a long lasting product that can take everyday use/abuse and still look great. That works for me

      The rug is beautiful! We purchased it in purple and it is exact colour that the picture indicates online. Also, the octopus design is tastefully done - kudos to the designer! It does shed some, but I noticed most new rugs will do the same so that is not a deal breaker for us. We highly recommend this rug if you're searching for something unique for your space.

      Option: 5' x 8' - Plum

      I don't know why but this carpet attracts so much dust. I am vacuuming it all the time. It reminds me of when I had a black car and it was always looking dirty. Other than that I have no complaints about the rug. Be sure to look carefully at the print in the photo. You have to really like the design or you won't like the rug.

      Option: 5' x 8' - Turquoise

      I am actually looking in to how to return this garbage. After over a month of almost daily vacuuming, it still sheds so much that my entire canister is full of turquoise fibers. The white of the rug is starting to pull out to the extent the fiber ends are exposed. It is a beautiful rug, but the quality is poor. I'm very disappointed in the shedding and unraveling.

      Option: 5' x 8' - Grey

      This is a deep grey which in our lighting has almost a blue-grey look. It goes perfect with our light Tiffany blue couches in our formal living room with our reef saltwater tank. Sheds a bit in the beginning but holds up well with foot traffic. If you have hard wood or tile floors be sure to get a rug grip pad too.

    • Very soft, well made rug

      The color is vibrant and the graphic is clear and gorgeous. This is a well-made, thick pile rug that is super soft and comfortable to walk/sit on. Only drawback is the constant shedding (have had it 1 month), but it's worth it!

      sheds, and loses a lot of fibers when i vaccuum it with a dyson. a vaccum that uses bags may be better to use .

    • Constant shedding over a year

      Bought this rug over a year ago. It's sheds constantly. And it sheds a lot. So much that our normal vacuum clogs with the shed fibers. I had to buy a sweeper just to clean the rug. The white fibers are poor quality and inconsistent widths. They stain quickly and begin to pull out. Now several white patches look like strung out yarn. The only way to clean this is to pull out my steam cleaner. I'm currently looking for a rug to replace this one.

      Colors and style are beautiful! I searched for a “nautical” rug for my living room for almost a year and decided to take a chance on this one. Very happy I made this purchase. Gets lots of compliments and provides a touch of subtle whimsy.
