This rug is beautiful...the design and color (medium gray with cream background) is just as described and shown on the website. The rug brings that something extra into the look of the space without screaming for attention with bright color or bold design. I love it. I was going for a more transitional look as I wanted flexibility in how I decorate the room long-term and I think this is going to work perfectly. Also, this rug is so very soft. My pets (1 dog and 1 cat) love it as well and like to lounge in this room now that the rug is there over the tile floor. I have not experienced cleaning any spills or accidents yet as I have only had the rug a few weeks. The cat has put his claws into it to exercise his paws as cats do and it has not snagged the rug at all.
