I've very pleased with this rug. Was a little concerned because of some of the reviews saying it looked gray. My walls are chocolate and it looks great. It's very soft with no shedding. Great price...found the same rug locally for over $400 more than Overstock.com
I was skeptical to order a rug without first seeing it or feeling it. I recently had purchased another rug for the same area from a retail store and it turned out to be a nightmare....showing dirt and it was very hard to clean. I returned that rug and decided to go out of my comfort zone and order this rug. I could not be happier! The rug is soft, east to clean and doesn't show dirt. I have 6 month old grand baby twins living in my home and I don't worry about them rolling around on it because it is so soft. It is more grey than brown and looks perfect in my home. I would definitely recommend!
The color does shift depending on the light from brown to gray but I love both colors and it goes with neutral tones either way. Be aware that it is not uniformly raised...the white parts are sunken in, the colored parts are fluffy. If you want padding, go with one that is uniformly raised...if it was uniform, I would give it 5 stars. Overall I am happy with the purchase...it has kept up well so far with vacuuming and my toddler. Ha.
