"the gray part of the rug looks shiny. The description says the rug is 100% wool but wool tends to have a more matte appearance. Is the gray part of the rug a viscose?"
absolutely love this rug. Color of taupe is a more beige or brown taupe than grey, and the lighter color is a blue/green with sheen. It really is a chameleon, in my opinion. Our furniture is grey (a warm grey, leans toward taupe) and our linen drapes are Pottery Barn Blue Dawn. This rug blends perfectly with the tones. So happy to find it on Overstock for much less than retail....

We happily received this rug quickly. We are happy with the quality and color. Although reviews said it looked blue, under our LED recessed lighting the colors of the rug are beige and grey. However the grey parts of the rug have a sheen to it so they appear light beige. I was fine with that. However the musty smell the rug had was off putting and it a couple of weeks to get rid of, that's why I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.Read More
I loved the quality of this rug but it is really light blue and beige brown.Read More
This rug would be great for a contemporary styling. We have a craftsman with earth tones, so we were attracted to the slate grey. When we got the rug, the "light blue/grey" was a neon green. Sending it back.Read More
Beautiful rug, excellent quality, not bad on shedding. I read the other reviews and it said the color was more of a blue than a gray. I'm an interior decorator and ordered this for a living room that had blues and taupes...but the rug is very much a green-based turquoise type color, not a gray blue. Beautiful (and popular) color combo, but not what I was wanting. Just know that! Otherwise the rug is great.Read More
I chose this rug based on the description of taupe/light grey, and the product image which looked (at least to me) to have a very subtle sheen to the yarn. In fact this rug is a light brown background favoring towards a pink-y brown, and the swirls are a light blue. It did not even come close to matching the navy blue and greyish taupe color palette I had intended it for, nor did it have any kind of subtle sheen that I thought I could see in the image, and I returned the rug. If you are looking for light brown and blue though, it appeared extremely well made, including a full woven backing cloth and hand-written manufacturing information.Read More
Overall ordering and delivery was flawless as well as return process. So disappointed to have to return item but customer service was gracious and helpful. The color was indicated as gray/silver but was actually blue. I have order several times through Overstock and this was the first return I've made. I will buy other products in the future.Read More
Transformed the look and feel of my living room! Beautiful, plush, with a cool design. The taupe is a nice neutral and the splotches are more of a light spa blue/seafoam green than grey, which works great for me. I use with a rug pad underneath it, so it says in place and feels great!Read More
I lov the rug but now that I see the design in the 8 x 10 size, I wish I chose another pattern. I think it is perfect for the 5 x 7 or smaller size but I plan to keep it. It was a great ordering experience.Read More
I purchased the rug for our dining room which is cool gray's. I thought the netural taupe with lt gray would look great, but the lt gray is actually an aqua color and it didn't go at all. Very nice, wool rug and would look gorgeous in another setting. I will look for a different color for our room.Read More
