However, I will say that if it’s a large rug that is going to go in a living area, there is a HUGE benefit to the ability to return the piece and get your money back if it doesn’t fit/look right, and usually the only way to tell if it works in the room is to put the rug down on the floor and see it in the space, with your furniture, etc.
I shopped locally all over (including Lowes!) and couldn’t find a look/feel that I liked that fit my budget. I wanted a wool rug if possible, but even the polyprolene rugs were hundreds of dollars here in the stores!
My area rugs in our common rooms are all from Overstock.com. I saw one in a local store so I got to see the quality/brand close up and personal (as well as the VERY high ticket price), and then I ordered a total of 4 rugs from the same maker online, each for a quarter of the price they sold for in stores.
The ability to return/exchange came in handy — one rug’s colors just didn’t work as well in the room as we’d hoped, so we sent it back. We exchanged the living room rug for a larger size to better fit the room.
Anyway, Angie…Happy Shopping!!]]>
Nice arranging. I always love a good furniture-rearrangement. Feels refreshing, yes?
Hey, where did you get your large rug? I’m in the market for one and don’t know where to start, other than Lowe’s. ha ha ha. :)]]>
When I asked Nicolas today if he liked the new arrangement, he answered quickly and very enthusiastically “YES!”. And then made me laught SO hard when he went and sat in one of the blue wing chairs and showed me how they are now PERFECTLY positioned to sit and play the wii…no need to even move the ottoman out of the way like they used to! Ah, the mind of a child…]]>
And good call by the kids; it’s nice to know their priorities are properly aligned.]]>
We moved the green upholstered rocking chair that was in the back corner of the living room out to the front room – I figure we’ll need an extra space open with the tree in there in about a week or so anyway. But it won’t stay there forever, I don’t think.
As great as that chair is, and as many wonderful memories as I have rocking my babies in it, it is really too large to work well in any of our rooms now. It is very long and wide and takes up a pretty big footprint.
I will probably sell it at some point, and try to find some smaller scaled chairs to put in the front room or swap out with the two which are now flanking the fireplace.]]>
