I was a little leery because of some of the reviews and because the photo didn't look quite like the color I needed for my room, and I'd been leanig toward the sold-out brown color. However, I am glad I paid more attention to the better reviews, and those which described the color more accurately. (They really need some better photos, maybe with the rug in a room.) It really is more of a dark grayish brown than a true charcoal, and the way that the colored fibers are mixed lends to the authentic look of the rug. It is a little glossy, which I suppose can look "fake," if you're familiar with the look of real rawhides, but it doesn't bother me. And it is so soft underfoot! (My dog seems to love sleeping on it.) My style is generally modern, and this fits in really well. It's fun, chic, and a little earthy. And much cheaper than I have seen this same rug elsewhere online. I feel like it's the new centerpiece of my living room. BTW, I did not need a rug pad, but my (wood) floors don't have a varnished finish. A slicker floor might. Try the rug first.
I am very happy with this purchase. I wanted something that looked like cowhide because I wanted an irregular rug, but I'm vegetarian so I didn't want to buy a real cowhide. It looks just like a cowhide, but clearly it does not have the same texture as cowhide because it is fake fur. Overstock is also much cheaper than the same product on several other sites. It is soft and nice, and my dog loves it too.

Very nice rug. Obviously not an authentic cowhide but a very good simulation. Looks very "real" and seems to be good quality. I bought this one and the brown one as well. I would recommend this one over the other as it seems to be more realistic.
You will not regret it, it's gorgeous. Adds such a stylish flare but isn't too YEEHAW bc of the pattern. Thank you, OVERSTOCK.COM!

This rug is thin, but it mimicks raw hide very well. The surface is super soft to walk on and vacuums very easily. It does have a slightly glossy look, but unless the sun is shining directly on it you will not notice. The colors are ivory, grey, and charcoal. There isn't any sign of brown! A great purchase that I like so much I plan on buying a second for our downstairs bar area.
i was concerned about the coloring of this rug, however, it showed up and was exactly what i wanted! it's more of a brown and ivory with smaller charcoal speckles throughout. great mix of color ways to incorporate a good collection of furniture. love love love.
Bought this rug for my husband's den. It is a masculine room and this rug added just the right touch. It is a fun piece while still remaining masculine. Would work great in a boys room, rustic setting or in almost any eclectic room to give a pop of interest
Very pretty rug, but definitely feels synthetic. Many reviews said it was close to a real rawhide, but I would have to disagree. Many of the cut edges are torn a bit (as if someone did a bad trim job). The run has a nice pattern but the shape is a bit off. I'm unsure if I will keep it. I think there are better options out there. If the edges were cleanly cut and the shape were different, I would rate it higher. I can get over the synthetic feel.
I absolutely love this rug! Like many other reviewers mentioned the primary color is light brown, not charcoal grey. There are grey specks, which look great. The quality is good, some light shedding, but after vacuuming it's less of an issue. The rug is thin, and at close inspection it is obviously a faux hide, but overall it looks and feels much nicer than a lot of the more expansive real cowhides.
This rug is perfect for the price & style i was looking for! I have 2 dogs (one is big) and the rug is holding up well in our living room with lots of traffic. The bold pattern is very stylish & unique, friends cant tell its not real! :)
I was looking for a rug that would compliment my recently renovated concrete floor and this was just what I was looking for. The only thing I have left to do is find a larger (9x12) rug to go underneath this one. The price of this one was definitely worth it.
coloring matched online photo exactly. for an acrylic rug it was softer than expected. looked great with my decor. although there was some undetectable scent on it that caused my dog to use it as a wee wee pad! have to throw out after only having for 3 days.
