Tonal and Geometric are used to describe the rug. It's small white horizontal stripes with the gray being very dark at each end and getting lighter toward the center.
This rug is very soft and, as others have said, it's quite lovely. I only gave it 4 stars, though, because the size is off. I purchased an 8x10 but what arrived is closer to 7x9. Luckily, it still works for the space...but barely. It will also need a rug pad, as it's a bit thin and slick. Aside from those little things, though, this is a fantastic purchase and I'm very happy with it.
We purchased this rug in the 6x9 and liked it so much we purchased the 10x14 for our family room. Since it almost looks like two different rugs depending on the direction, you have a choice to have a brighter/lighter or darker/richer vibe. We have one rug on cream carpet with the lighter vibe and the other rug on walnut floors with the darker vibe and they both look great. The subtle dusty blue tones (light and dark) are why the rugs work so well in our home. If you don't want any blue then this may not be the rug for you. There is also a bit of taupe to the two grey tones which also work well for us. The rugs are made well and arrived very quickly to SoCal.
I bought the 2x3 to "try it out"before buying the larger 10x14. I think it's a great rug if you're looking for a natural fiber rug. Swapped it out for an oriental rug in my living room to make it lighter, more neutral and less formal. Love the texture! Like a boucle sweater! It's much softer than you fear a jute rug might be, though I wouldn't get it for a room where kids are sitting/playing on or where you frequently walk barefoot. Color is very accurate in the photos. Neutral in an ivory/sandy way, does not lean yellow/camel like many sisals or green like seagrass. Could also work nicely with grays.
