The rug is beautiful. It was received within a week and in perfect condition. The rug is very thick, and I haven't even put the pad underneath yet. The colors are very pretty. As noted in other reviews, the blue is more of a seafoam blue / green color, but very pretty. The color of the leaves and vines are consistent with the colors shown in the online picture. Would definitely recommend this rug. No shedding, no fringes, no smell. I've ordered 4 other rugs from Overstock and had similarly great service and timely delivery. For similar price, this rug is definitely the thickest of all the wool rugs I've purchased, without the shedding or unique smell.
