This rug is gorgeous!!! It sheds a bit but nothing like a Ben Ourain. The texture is so soft too. it's essentially the lightest grey woven background with geometric lines (some wavy) of what feels like the softest white cat. It does not have two-tone fluff like in the second picture shows. My pic is more accurate.
Beautiful rug but does not hold up outdoors. After a few weeks it began shedding tiny fibers. They are all over the deck now and stick to your feet when you walk on it. I'm sure it would be fine indoors.
This rug is terrific....wish i needed more. In fact, i purchased the same one with the dark background for the living room and I get compliments galore. But here is something important to know. This same rug in the smaller sizes are COMPLETELY different. The material is a lot cheaper, more of a shag reminiscent of the '70s. Those are fine, actually, but not nearly as lux as the 9' x 12' in both colors. So don't order them for the same room (as I did) because they will not perfectly match. I called overstock about it and they had no explanation and could offer no resolution. Still, great rugs.
Ordered the 9 x 12 for our great room to give it color and break up our seating area. Looks fantastic. Great colors that compliment any decor and soft under our feet. Have had no issue with shedding as mentioned in other posts.
