I am over the moon ticked pink with this rug, and the price didn't cause me heartburn.. I recently painted my family room in a taupe, but it is a grayish brown color, not a warm beige, Found some new furniture; couch in a cream/ivory color and chair and a half in a gray, they actually call the color gun metal. Looked for weeks for a gray rug that would work, Grays are difficult for me to work with, but I ordered this in a 3x5 as a test. When it arrived I couldn't believe my eyes it was one of the most beautiful shades of charcoal gray that I had ever seen. I took the rug to the furniture store to lay beside the fabric I selected for the furniture. The designer/sales thought it was more beautiful than what they had to offer. Some of their rugs were over $****.**. When they asked me where I got it, I was so proud to tell them Overstock.com, and they were flabbergasted! I'll use this smaller rug in the bathroom and I just ordered the 9'6" x 13 for the family room. Nice and squishy and soft on your feet. It does need a rug pad. I ordered a felt pad for extra cushion. So if you are looking for a gray rug that leans toward cool colors this is the one for you. If you are looking for a gray that is a warmer/brown tone. This is Not the rug to get.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is much more beautiful than the picture, has a very intersting combination of fibers and shades of gray, so it looks like charcoal, not blue, color is a cool gray, not a brown gray
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. very plush, and the perfect thickness of the pile/shag, not over done, does not smoosh down flat
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? there is no pattern, but like I said, variations of gray, you can't tell unless you have your face 6 inches from the rug.
