I wanted a solid shag rug in gray, to put between 2 facing loveseats & to anchor the coffee table in between them. It's nice & soft to put your feet on & the cats have given it their stamp of approval. They love to sit on it underneath the glass coffee table. The furniture & table are contemporary & a shag rug is what I wanted to finish off the space. It looks great & fits the bill. I am happy with my purchase.
