Love the look of the rug - contemporary and fun. However, the color is not even close to the lighter platinum in picture. It is described as a salt and pepper palette, but I would suggest it is far more pepper (loads of black)with a little salt. That being said, I am liking the overall look for my living room.Read More
This is a beautiful rug and the online pictures do not do it justice! The rug is extremely smooth and the color is gorgeous. It is very easy to clean even though it is a shag rug. The vacuum glides easily over the rug, which was surprising. This is a great value for such a high quality rug.Read More
Very nice plush rug. I've had it for about 2 years and it's still in perfect shape. It's in a high traffic area and wears well. It doesn't show dirt at all, so that's nice. It's got a platinum look to it and does go well with the blue grey tones.Read More
Elegant, beautiful, barefoot friendly rug. Exceeded our expectations. I think our dogs love it more than we do! Thanks overstock.com.Read More
I love this rug. It is a nice mix of black, white, gray and silver, but not too much of any one color. Our dog loves the cool feeling and texture as well. We ordered a matching runner, which is also very nice. I would recommend this rug.Read More
I love this rug! It really complement the rest of the decoration. Everyone that comes to my house gives compliment on the look that brings to the room. We really like the texture as well, very soft! Im very happy with the purchase!Read More
It is extremely difficult to see what a product looks like from a computer screen so I was hesitant to buy this rug. I had an idea in my mind of what I wanted and searched long and hard. I finally decided to order and was so happy when it arrived! The shag fibers are kind of silky which gives them a subtle shimmer. There are separate gray/silver, white and black fibers which gives it a salt and pepper look. The only thing I wish was better is the thickness of the backing. Have tile floors and you can still feel the hardness under your feet instead of cushion.Read More
