This rug is very pretty and as the previous reviewer mentioned it is more of a blue/gray which is exactly what I wanted. It is soft and a good thickness. BUT.. I ordered an 8'6" x 11' 6" which would have been the correct size. I received a 7'6" x 9'6" (which is really 7'3" x 8'3"). I called and said they sent the wrong size the operator said they were out of stock of the correct size. I really like the rug but I am really frustrated about it being a little too small. They did refund the price difference. But had I known that I wouldn't have received the correct size I would not have ordered it.
