On March 29th, 2011 I posted about wanting a new living room rug. Yes, over one year ago! I've touched on it a couple of times since then & even considered painting a rug. I know it seems like I sometimes don't follow up on posts like this, but it is almost always because I still haven't made a decision! I like all of the rugs from that first post, but the ones I LOVED were all too expensive. I've had a basic off-white shag rug in place for about 9 months.
One day while shopping in Lincoln Park with my mom & sister, I came upon this rug in the entry at Francesca's Collection (funny that the rug is also called Francesca!). I made sure to snap a picture of the details as well so that I could look it up later.
It led me to google "Francesca Rugs" which I then learned is part of Loloi Rugs. I ultimately decided that this rug has too much brown in it for me (dark brown floors, brown chaise, tan couch), but was drawn to this bright, fun number. I love the orange accents!
But I've been hemming and hawing over the $500+ price tag for over a month...which typically means I won't buy it. I almost bought it last week but cancelled the order at the last minute. Sigh. The search went on.
Today's sales on Joss & Main featured bright rugs that I figured I'd click through and give it a try. First, I found this Tamara rug. I immediately liked it & the $300 price tag. The 5x7 rug we have now just isn't cutting it anymore (& especially with the baby coming, we need more soft surfaces), and a 7x9 is what I've been looking for!
I was ready to purchase this when I scrolled down a bit further and saw this rug, which I just so happen to have had my eye on for months over at RugsUSA. Again, the $600 price tag scared me off from clicking "buy", but it didn't stop me from checking it out every week or so. & trying to work it into a design for a client! :)
Check out that price! $219 for a 7'6" x 9'6" 100% wool rug! The reviews on the other site say that the gray is more of a blue gray (perfectly fine with me) & that the green is more vibrant (perfect again!).
I bought it. It arrives in a couple of weeks! Finally, I can put the search to rest!
Have you found any great deals on Joss & Main or other daily sales sites lately?
