I will be using this rug for the winter months. The color is a woven dark grey and bluish gray weave, tightly woven and a very good quaility. The workmanship is excellent. In fact, I ordered a tan one for the summer months. I just hope it holds up to 4 dogs and 4 cats and multiple teenager traffic.
When I first received this rug I was really annoyed because the picture makes it appear like it's a pretty uniform gray in the sisal part but is in fact a light gray woven with a light green. HOWEVER, the subtle color difference really worked well in my dining room so I decided to keep it.
