I'm so thankful for all the people who take time to post reviews. The most important thing to me is when size and a good description of the color is mentioned by reviewers. It's very hard to tell the true color of things on a computer monitor. That said, I acted on the color description of one of the reviewers who described this as a silvery gray. That is exactly what I wanted, and I am very happy with the rug I received. It is a "cool" shade of gray which goes with the blue and blue gray in my decor. The shag consists of two sizes of loops. A "thicker" loop that is the light/silver gray color, and thinner loops that are a twist of both gray and black threads So the color is not a "solid" silver gray, but a mix of gray and black. I like it. It will be easy to care for, and I believe this rug will wear very well. I was also pleased that it didn't have a strong chemical smell.

When this rug arrived, because it was so large, we decided to open one end and feel the rug and check it out in case we wanted to ship it back. Initially, we thought the fibers were spaced apart too far - as in, we could see the bottom of the rug. However, since I knew this rug in all sizes had excellent reviews on Overstock, I was compelled to open it fully and lay it down to see if things changed. Boy am I glad I did that. This has to be one of the most fantastic rugs I've ever come across. It is so soft and once it was open and laying on the floor the fibers are so full and when you walk on them they lay down more and you cannot see the bottom of the rug. The color is exactly what I needed. It is a peppery color up close but from afar it just looks like a light grey. It has really brought our family room together. The only downside is that ours did come very smelly and it's taken weeks to get that smell even somewhat diminished. We've even had the luxury of opening windows quite frequently to air the rug out. I have vacuumed this rug twice now and it is a bit tough to get the vacuum over the rug but our vacuum has not damaged the product at all. Also, what makes the rug even better is that loose fibers are not visible. I can lay on the rug in black clothing and I do not walk away covered in new carpet fibers whatsoever. A beautiful product! Well worth the investment! Thanks Overstock!
The kids & cat love it in front our fireplace. The multi-color yarn means I don't have to worry about spills and stains.

Really delighted with this shag rug. Well made and extremely soft. Pile is quite high. It is a true silvery grey, but with subtle shading that, I think, gives the rug more interest than it would have were it a solid color. I am using the rug on hardwood/bamboo flooring in a room painted a cream color with medium navy colored accent walls; it's fabulous with the blue. Furniture in the room is gray leather (not silver gray, but it still looks very nice because of the shading)., with black, chartreuse and purple accents. I love it. Some reviewers wrote that the rug had an "odor;" I have a very sensitive nose, and I didn't notice any odor, except perhaps that of the smell of "new carpet," which I do not find unpleasant. Even that has now dissipated. The carpet does not shed that I can see. I have not run the sweeper over it yet, so can't comment on that. .
Wasn't sure I wanted a shag rug, but when I read the reviews I decided to give this rug a chance. The color is perfect with the paint I have in the room since its a pretty darkish gray and I wanted to go a little lighter on the floor..the gray stands out nicely on the rug. The size is perfect, 8 1/2 x 12, almost to the point of it carpeting the whole room. But the best part of the rug is the feel I come into the guest room sans shoes just to walk around, it is so soft and silky and feels so good on bare feet. Would Highly recommend this product
For an inexpensive rug, this was a great buy! It's hard to find something in this size for the money so I was thrilled. Great silvery color, no odor when removed from the package, and nice and fluffy. No shedding. Very cool tones but nice variation of gray/white. Even if it lasts 3 years I'd say order it!
I read all the reviews on this rug before I ordered it. I was nervous about ordering this rug without being able to see and touch it. But since the reviews and price were so great, I decided to give it a shot. We all LOVE it so much!! It came so quickly to the house - just a few days. My husband and I unrolled it (we also ordered a rug pad from Overstock). It is SO plush and comfortable - you just want to lay on it all the time. It is a nice light gray - almost silvery. I have a dog and a 2 year old and everyone in the family loves this rug. It did not have a strong smell like others have commented - just a slight "new rug" smell - which you only noticed if you got right up to it and smelled it. It looks great in the room and I am getting compliments from everyone that sees it. I already have 2 friends that are planning to get it for their homes too.
I've been looking for a rug for my living room area for months. I live in an apartment and have 2 small children, a dog and a cat. So I wanted something that not only looked great in my loft-style apartment, but also was comfy for kids to sit on. This totally fits the bill. The color is perfect. It appears gray, yet the individual fibers are twisted grayish and white. It is so super soft; the dog now lays on the rug instead of always going to the couch! The kids immediately noticed how soft it was and choose to sit and play there. It matches perfectly with my off-white couch, dark hardwood floors and mix of antique and contemporary furniture. The price is what caught my eye and it's worth every penny. Rugs are not cheap and this one was definitely worth it!
Wonderful rug ... bought this after reading other reviews. I put it in the dining room.... its a beautiful color, silvery greyish. it arrived quickly by fed ex .. we used a rug pad underneath as I worried about scratching on our brand new installed finished in place true oak hardwood floor. I did notice a slight smell from carpet as others mentioned, but opened a window and it seems to disappear within a half hour, so no worries. the rug itself is super soft and plushy. I usually buy wool so was a bit worried about this, but couldn't be happier. this is the fifth rug I have gotten from the big O and love then all...I say BUY it!!
We really love this rug. We have gone through several rugs in the past several months that just haven't worked out. We have kids and a big dog and between the 2 they DESTROY rugs. haha. It is a thick shag, which works for us. it's soft under your feet and the size was great. I do recommend if you buy this rug that you go ahead and get the rug pad at the same time. It has the harder scratch surface on the back so it's worth it to go ahead and get it at the same time. The color is a mix of silver, white and dark grey that give it a really dynamic appearance.....the picture does not do this rug justice! I would recommend this rug to anyone.
This is a beautiful luxurious rug, so soft and thick. Everyone likes it! I would recommend this to anyone. I also would like to say the shipping was very prompt and I have always received excellent customer service for Overstock. Prices are great and I always like to check here first on any purchase.
I've been to every store in San Antonio and looked at area rugs in price ranges from inexpensive to are-you-kidding-me. My walls and furniture are in the gray and cream pallet, but the gray rugs I brought home tended to look blue in my living room light or made my gray walls look brownish. I was nervous about a rug purchased online, so I ordered the little one first and was so pleased I ordered the full sized one. Mine is the silver, not the gray. It's a fairly short shag and actually has several colors mixed in including charcoal and cream, but from a distance looks gray. More importantly, it doesn't have blue over (under?) tones and doesn't make my gray walls look brown.. It's not as plush as a more expensive carpet, but for the price I'm extremely pleased. It hasn't shed when vacuumed and doesn't show the hair from my two labs. I'm still stunned I could get this nice of a carpet for this price. I put it over the non-slip rug pad just to protect the wood floors, but I don't think it would slip around much with furniture on it.
I must say I am extremely pleased with this rug, it is truly stunning in shades of silver and grays that are subtle and give the rug both depth and movement. It is very soft to the touch (wonderful when barefoot), plush, dense, and the price point was incomparable. Perfect area rug for our mid-century modern home. This purchase is a "highly recommend".
Since moving into a new apt and getting complaints from the downstairs neighbors about every step I take on my creaky hardwood floors, I started looking into an almost room size rugs to put down in the livingroom to muffle our steps and also the voices I hear of my downstairs neighbors when I'm in the livingroom. After looking at several wall to wall options, the cost of getting one of those just wasn't in my budget. I went back and forth on a few options on Overstock and measured my floor to see what the largest I could afford. The original rug I had wanted from this site was sold out in the color I wanted and this one had super great reviews and the price was perfect. I knew from reading other reviews that the rug might have a "chemical" odor (being brand new) so I had anticipated that. Delivery was super quick...I tracked it daily to see if it had been shipped from the warehouse yet. I got it within a week. It came rolled up and was SUPER heavy! I'm 5'2" and it was a workout to drag it across my livingroom and unroll it into place. the size was a true 8'6"x12' and it fit my livingroom perfectly. Not quite a wall to wall but still covered the majority of flooring in the livingroom part of my living/dining room combo. I was also very pleased with the color(s). I was nervous about the "silver' color but had read other reviews where it was described as several colors of fiber woven together. When you look closely there's threads of silver and thread of lighter silver twisted together with a darker grey.The overall look gave the rug depth. Its super soft, my two Shihtzus love sleeping on it. The only negative I would say is the chemical smell that took a week to fade away. I would definitely recommend this rug to friends and family and to anyone else that's on the fence about purchasing this.
