I had been eyeing this rug for months, wondering if I should chance it. A lot of the reviews said that it was graysih-blue, not a true blue. It is indeed grayish, more like a slate blue. It matches beautifully with the rest of the room and it looks like I spent a lot more than I did. The pattern is beautiful, it looks like it's well made. It's not in a high traffic area, not sure how well it would wear under conatant use.I am very happy with it and would highly recommend it.
