I was very careful to look at the reviews before buying a rug. I knew I wanted a comfy shag in grey. My space has a lot of warm greys. Make sure to look what people are saying about the undertones of these rugs. Some are blueish, some very cool and silvery etc. This one is a medium grey. When I initially unrolled it, it looked to have a decent amount of silver neutral grey tone to it, however, once I "fluffed" up the rug, I saw a lot more warm, taupe grey to it. Works perfect for my space. My baby loved crawling around on it and laying down. I almost took a nap on it with her! Very soft. Comfy but sophisticated.
I purchased this rug because a friend of mine just received one. First off, Overstock is upping their shipment time game! I received it two days after I ordered it! Secondly, I have been hesitating on getting a rug because I have two fluffy dogs who track tons of nature from the backyard into the house. I couldn't tell by the picture if the whole rug was grey or it was a mix of white and grey threads. I took a gamble and it paid off. The rug is mixed with probably two different greys and one white thread, which really makes for hiding debris and stains. Plus it is super cushy, so much so that I now sit on the floor when folding laundry or hanging with the pups! I would recommend this brand and color.
I've been looking for a soft rug to replace our wool living room rug and the milan shag grey rug is perfect! That is saying a lot because I am super picky! I originally ordered the silver shag rug but it was not a warm enough gray for the room. The silver gray is so pretty and soft too but definitely a cooler tone that I expected. I'm returning it and keeping the warmer milan rug. My first return with overstock so I hope it goes well!
This rug is soft and I really like the color variation with the different shades of gray (and maybe some white). It really adds to our living room. It also actually lets our dyson vacuume it as well (still hard to push) but the vacuume usually gets caught on most area rugs because of its high powered suction.
The look with my new laminate flooring is just what I had imagined, perfect. I had also purchased an 8' x 10' x 1/2" pad for it also. My friend had walked on it yesterday and thought she was in heaven. A very beautiful purchase, thank you again Overstock !!!.
I wasn't sure what to expect, especially since it's shag, but I love it! Even without a pad it's thick, soft, and comfortable. Placed near brown furniture the overall tone seems more brown than gray. But near gray items you can definitely tell its gray. I've gotten a lot of compliments on this rug!
I originally wrote a good review for this rug shortly after we received it. HOWEVER ... less than 9 months later the polypropylene fibers of the rug are getting all matted together. The rug is in the living room over hardwood floors but it's not like we have a lot of traffic in the house - my husband and I are in our early 60's and are empty nesters. I DO NOT recommend this rug because it lacks durability. Yes, you'll love it at first, but less than a year later it's starting to look old and tatty. I'm sad.
