I previously ordered a rug from Overstock and received exactly what I expected based off the online photos and descriptions. Despite the photo on this rug, the background rug color is not grey, but more charcoal or black. It is very dark. While the round shapes within the rug are various shades of dark grey to almost beige, the background is not grey at all. The round shapes are also larger than the picture suggestes - ranging from four inches in diameter to two inches - and less dense in design. Do not buy this product if you want a grey carpet. Do buy it if you want a black carpet. However, the rug is very soft and durable.
