This is a great sized rug...just what we needed for a big room. The rug feels more like a mat, and there are some natural fibers at first that stick up and make it somewhat uncomfortable to walk in bare feet. The longer we have it, however, the fewer fibers stick up. We have an active family and I like blending many textures in a room, so this rug was great for us. It is a charcoal gray color with a black edging.
