I purchased this rug for my dining room which is painted gray and has a stainless-steel topped table. The rug quality is as represented, in my opinion. The problem is color. The jute itself is green and gray. The green was so overwhelming that I have to return the rug. The rug is banded with a 2" velvet-like binding. It is GRAY. Up next to the jute, the contrast of the green really makes the color difference stand out. I am disappointed in the green.
