Safavieh Antiquity Blue/Gold 7 ft. 6 in. x 9 ft. 6 in. Area Rug

Verified Purchase & Recommended Product
I would highly recommend this area rug to friends and family! I purchased the Blue/Gold rug ( AT52C-8; Internet # 205166810).
In my opinion the colors online are not close to the actual colors. Most other sites have the Safavieh pictures (some which are here also) which are not at all representative of the true colors. The two pictures of the rug on the floor (on the HD site) help just a bit and those made me decide to buy the rug. I think the actual colors are a bit darker, certainly the blue is. I also think the colors on this site are duller than the actual colors; the actual colors are richer and have more depth. The gold is more golden/orange. There is also green, plum, beige and light and medium brown in the rug. The pattern is not too busy , so all the colors work well together. I am pleased with the colors in the rug as my living room happens to have some items/objects/art with similar colors/shades that are in the rug.
I gave 4 stars/bars for Overall Rating/Quality only because I wish the pile would have been closer to 0.5" (the pile is just under 0.5” at 0.4375"). I have purchased other rugs with a 0.5" pile and they feel very plush. But rest assured that the thickness of the rug still is acceptable. I wish I could have given 4 1/2 stars for Overall rating. I did use two TrafficMASTER 6 ft. x 8 ft. 5 lb. Density Premium Plush Rug Pads under the area rug and the combination makes for a very plush feeling underfoot!
I gave 5 bars for appearance since the rug is beautiful! I have not had the problem of lint/fibers that others have reported. It would be natural to see some of that initially. I have had the rug for a month and did vacuum the rug once a week as a "break it in" process, but it was not out of need. I still give it a once a week vacuum, but again, it has not been because it is needed.
I gave 5 bars for value as I shopped several sites for the same rug and HD happened to have the best price (on sale), beating other sale prices by $100. However, now with the regular price plus tax, some sites do beat the regular price because sales tax and shipping are not charge on several rug online vendors (not that HD charged for shipping). I guess I got lucky with the HD sales price because even with the sales tax it was competitive at the time.
All in all, I am very happy with the rug! The new rug is a great change over the one I replaced. It looks great in my living room! The room looks more inviting and refined with this rug than the one I replaced!
