I had been eyeing this rug for a while and I was so disappointed when it was out of stock. It came back and I bought it immediately! It's beautiful, colors on the screen are true to life. The blue is definitely a slate--pretty, grayish blue. It's so soft under my feet and goes very well with my living room furniture and leather ottomans. Great price, fast shipping, and hardly any shipping costs. I love Overstock!
