Overall, we're very happy with this rug. The quality is better than expected and certainly a value for its price. Two points were note: the color is darker than my screen displays. The grey weave is much closer in value to the black border. From a distance, this rug appears black. In fact, we have a matching all-black version in the adjoining room and it's difficult to tell them apart. Also, the was a major imperfection running through the center of the rug. One distinctly lighter grey fiber runs half way down the center and is a bit of an eye-sore. We decided not to send it back because our dining room table obscures the imperfection. We tend to buy this type of inexpensive rug knowing that a cat, dog, or kid will ultimately destroy it, so in this instance we were more forgiving of its defect. While the rug is lovely, of good quality and worth the $$$, my hunch is that it ended up at Overstock because the manufacturer was aware it was imperfect.
The carpet looks exactly like the picture. It is well made and lays flat. I say that because I ordered a lesser quality from Overstock that never did lay flat on the floor. I use this carpet under a 5 x 8 carpet and it looks great. I think this rug is actually bigger than 8 x 10. I think it may be a 9 x 10. The part of the carpet that is walked on does certainly hang on to dog fur, so I would probably need to vacuum it A LOT if it used alone.
These rugs look wonderful in my loft. The consistency of color and texture is terrific and they arrived with no wrinkles, rolled up on a heavy cardboard tube. Exc. price for a great look.
