This is not a solid grey carpet. It is more beige/yellow with grey. I thought maybe it was the lighting in my house, so I dragged it to the front door to see in natural light. It was even more beige/yellow in natural light. Would not work in my space. Overstock was great and set up the return.
Although I was expecting a darker rug, I do love it anyway. It lists as charcoal but in fact, has cream mixed throughout, which gives it some dimension. Luckily, it still goes well with my decor and I'm happy with the quality and style, related to the cost. I'd buy it again.
