I Loved this rug when I saw it online. I have a grey slate fireplace wall and thought that the rug would work great for a neutral backdrop to add some splashes of color to the room. I loved this rug even more when I first unrolled it. However under certain conditions you can really see a purple cast to the rug and it is not a pure grey. Even in the natural light there is a hint of purple showing through. I really want this rug to work so I am going to try some other types of light bulbs, but I am not sure it is going to stay. I wanted to post this review ASAP so other people would know about the potential color problem.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? There definately is a pink-purple color to it - not a true grey. Looks more grey with natural light.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I love the design and the rug feel nice underfoot. No significant pilling/shedding - but then again I just unrolled it yesterday.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Great - except again for the subtle color change
My hesitation for giving this an excellent is that I don't really have any other rugs to compare it to. It looks nice, is comfortable to walk on. The color is good. I'm not sure what you really judge a rug on!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It almost has a tinge of purple, but that may be because it's next to our darker gray couch
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. nice tuft, very comfortable to walk on
The carpet is beautifully made and very plush. Shedding is minimal and you can tell it is a quality product. Unfortunately, I should have listened to the other reviews as it is VERY purple in any other light than muted sunlight. In direct sunlight, or any time a lamp is turned on it is purple. Not just purple...PURPLE! I would send it back, but It would be too much of a pain. The carpet looks and feels much more expensive than what I paid, but if you are looking for a true charcoal rug and not a purple rug, do not make this purchase. Five stars for quality, 1 star for color so I rated it average. Overstock, please don't mislead people any longer with this rug.
