This rug is an incredible value. It's thick and comfy, and looks fantastic in our living room. There are issues with little lint balls, but I know that's a wool rug thing, and it will get better with time and repeated vacuuming. If you're thinking about it, you should know that the color shown here (if your monitor matches mine, I guess) is accurate. The rug is a warmer shade of grey, so if you're looking to complement an all black & white decor it may or may not be up your alley.
