    • Great rug, super soft & inviting, great value

      This rug is darker than it looks in the pictures, more black to it like most of the other reviews indicate. I'm going to keep it even though its not as light/silvery as I wanted because it does look really good and I love how soft it is. Great quality and value. Looks way more expensive than it is.

    • Amazing rug!!!
      Verified Purchase

      Rug looks great. Has a nice mix of colors and a silvery shine which brightens up the room, not a drab grey rug at all. Very impressed and happy with my purchase. Picture doesn't do it justice. Must see In person

    • Great shag carpet, but pet owners be warned
      Verified Purchase

      This is a great shag carpet, high quality and lasted a long time. Pet owners be warned however, I think shag carpet = grass to pee/poop on to small dogs. And of course cats absolutely love to barf on all types of carpet, especially shag carpet! Pet stains, mainly poop and throw up are hard to get out of it, but this is expected with any shag carpet. Good price and high quality. I would purchase again if I did not have those pesky pets.

      I have 3 of these same rugs in my home. Love them. They are very low maintenance. Never look dirty, the strands hold up well and they are easy to clean - you can take them out and just beat the dust when needed. I will probably buy another for a bedroom.

    • I LOVED this rug the minute I unrolled it
      Verified Purchase

      I've ordered an area rug online before and have been unpleasantly surprised, but not in this case. The rug has thick and thin polyester strands (as described) and because of the polyester, it's got a little bit of shine to it to give a modern feel. The thicker strands are white and dark gray and the thinner strands are black and white. The picture is pretty true to color but looks a smidge darker in my living room. I vacuum it with a normal vacuum but turn the roller brush off (I feel like the roller brush will give the threads a beating). Does feel a little weird under the feet but nothing terrible. It wasn't a struggle to flatten it. Overall I love the modern style it brings and for the price, totally can't go wrong.

    • Gret mix of colors
      Verified Purchase

      Because of the colors and the different size of yarns in this rug, it SHINES. Very pretty. It has a medium nap and is easy to vacuum. It mats down a little when you walk on it but fluffs up again very easily. I was a little worried it might be too light---I have 3 cats, but the mix of white, gray and black is Just Right. My cats blend right in!! And you could use any accent color with it. I am VERY happy with it. I think it is a great value and adds a spark of light to a room.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Shopping for a grey or salt and pepper rug. I see this company has several rugs with same description and reviews that states it is black, white, silver and grey with different names. Which one is the darker one ? They have Platnium and Textured grey and New Orleans, etc. ( forget the name)."

      • A:

        If you're looking for a true grey rug you may want to go with textured grey . Platinum is going to have a silver look, it also appears very dark . I actually had to return the platinum rug in exchange for the textured grey. Hope this helps

    • Q:

      "Does that border strip on the end of the rug stick out like it shows in the picture or does the shag strings flow over it thereby covering that strip when the rug is laid flat on the ground?"

      • A:

        Hello heck27, the strip is actually the binding of the rug and part of the construction. It will show as you see it here, however over time the rug fibers may relax. Please note that this is also the angle of that the photo was taken. Thank you for shopping with us. Rochelle B
