We've been searching for a gray rug for months. I just couldn't find that 'perfect' rug for our living space. I would purchase a rug to bring it home and lay it down only to realize that it had a greenish tint or it was too busy or not thick enough. I purchased this one, unrolled it and to my surprise, I actually love it! I didn't think I could love a simple sold color rug but when you've tried many other options, you know the right one when you see it. It might be a solid rug but it's definitely not plain or boring. If you're the same situation - give it a shot!
