I bought a series of these Safavieh outdoor/indoor rugs in various shapes, patterns/styles all in the grey color. I wanted something neutral, as I hadn't figured out how I wanted to decorate our new house, and knew with kids I needed a heavy duty and inexpensive rugs. I have to say, the grey is more BLUE than grey in all the ourdoor series by this brand. I personally LOVE it. It isn't a bold color, but a muted blue. It look great with my decor, but if you are looking for a TRUE grey, this is not for you.
I needed a gray, round rug for under our table and found this one to fit our needs. Quality is indoor/outdoor so it's not soft and cushy but that's what I wanted anyway. As far as color, it is for sure darker gray with a hint of blue, but still gray. So on the computer screen it is lighter in both colors than shown. It's more like dark gray/beige. It's what I should expect for the price, but not a steal.
We got this rug for our living room, since the door the backyard runs right through the walking area of the LR I needed something that could take a little dirt and foot traffic. I loved the price on this rug. When I saw that another reviewer reported the rug as blue and not grey I was concerned. I posted a question about this and OS confirmed that the rug is grey and if it came and was not that they would take it back no charge. I will say that there are blue based greys and yellow based greys, this rug def. has blue undertones so it is a cool grey rather than a warm grey (one that would have yellow undertones), but it is def. grey. The rug itself is pretty basic as expected, it looks great in our living room. I put a rug pad under it which I think it does need to give it a little softer under foot feel. I have only had it down for a few days, so I can't spek to durability or how it vacuums, but so far I'm quite happy with the purchase. I think that if you are using this rug outdoors it would hold up well and dry quickly, I'm not sure how fast the off white stripes would get dirty though...just something to consider.

The rug is as expected for an indoor/outdoor and somewhat rough but the color is NOT grey, it's blue for sure. We can't use this in the room planned because of this... and as you'd expect it doesn't make sense to return with shipping costs.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Off
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice but rough

Thanks to all of the reviews stating this rug is a darker grey than what the website shows. I wanted a more charcoal grey color and that is how I would describe it in person. It's perfect for my son's room to match charcoal grey accents in his bedding and the stripes give it a fresh, modern look. For the price the quality is good. It is an indoor/outdoor rug so it isn't soft but it still feels fine under bare feet, unlike some of the rough natural fiber rugs. You will want a non-slip pad under it if you don't have furniture to anchor it or if you want a thicker feel. It is not reversible either and it does have a dye odor to it for a day or too, but it goes away. Overall I'm completely satisfied with it and I also ordered the black/bone color for my kitchen to and it looks great.
I've had this rug for over a year now and it looks just as good as it did the day I bought it. I use it inside in my dining room and you can't tell it's an indoor/outdoor rug. It cleans easily and vacuuming doesn't seem to bother it. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another indoor/outdoor rug from Overstock or Safavieh.
Was not nice enough to put in my entry way, slipped a lot, cheap looking for the price. I put it on my front porch but probably going to sell it cheap and find something I like better. Colors are bland, ivory is more tan, not as crisp looking as the photo, more like a mat than a rug.
