Hey friends, I just had to show you this rug Joe and I just bought.
But first, rugs are expensive right? Decent rugs. And I find it so hard to commit.
Knowing that at 28 and 33 we are moving back into student housing, cinderblocks, industrial carpet, limited square footage, I just felt we needed to do something to spice up that apartment and make it feel more home-y and happy.
So I started hunting rugs. If you saw my Pinterest feed recently you would know this. There were lots of options, but even the budget ones (for about a 5'X7') were going to be $160-$250.
I found some I liked, but none where I was like "this is the rug!".
I almost bought this one from Company C (available online at Garnet Hill) when I saw it at a local store. The floor model was down to $229 (for the 6 X 9), but it was really worn in places and over $200 was more than I'd planned on spending. So I passed it up...though it was very nearly love (so bright and colorful and geometric. love.)
So I've been over there 3 times. But couldn't quite commit. I liked things but didn't love them.
Then tonight Joe and I swung by (third time's the charm!) and found this beauty (pardon the low light cell phone pic...):
It's called "charcoal" but it's really more of a blue-gray in person. And it is soft. Softer than you'd expect for wool. You can find it online at Overstock on sale now for $147 (from the $289 list price). But we got it, for $80, including tax.
It's love. True love. Happy soft beautiful rug for the apartment.
(If you are local and want to go to the Overstock outlet -- they have rugs, chairs, lamps, bedding, tables all at about half of their web price -- it is at about 8600 S and 1300 E in Sandy, UT).
Yay for a rug and yay for moving into our apartment in less than a month. Now the question is, what color throw pillows do I put on our tan couch...
