I have been looking for a rug for the living room. I have purchased a large rug from Overstock years ago for the dining room, looking for a smaller rug (to place over an old carpet and under the coffee table) for the living room. I needed some blue in it. Based on the image of this ivory rug, I would have not considered buying this one... BUT because of customer feedback on the "blue" in the rug, I purchased it. 3 days later, it is here and I love it! The blue matches the blues in my room, and it is a great fit. Not the same pattern as the dining room, but it is of the same style. It is busy, which draws the eye. If I had a really decorated room, it probably would be too much. But it's good for my needs.
