Which features this gorgeous rug from Ethan Allan. Unfortunately with the $1000+ price tag, it was way out of our league baby. In the first few months we brought home 5 different rugs, which were quickly returned, until we settled on this guy.
Let's be honest. I think from the beginning we knew we didn't love it. No, I know we didn't. But we were so sick of bringing rugs home, and it was the best we had come up with. Plus, we got it for a pretty incredible low price for a 8 x 10 rug ($120), so we figured we could always Craigslist it down the road if it didn't grow on us. Spoiler alert: it didn't grow on us.
Which leads us to a 15% off rug sale at Overstock.com this past weekend and an impulse buy on a rug that looked a lot like our Ethan Allen inspiration.
|The rug is a little more muted than the photos, this is probably the best color representation.|
Here we go again... but I don't love it. I mean, it's miles better than what we had, and feels plush and soft underfoot. But while we wanted the rug to bring warm color into the room, this red just feels like too much. Am I wrong? It may be the loveseat an chair too, which have always looked a little too pinky-beige for our taste, but it's not in the immediate plans to buy new stuff as we've got a bunch of other priorities to attend to around here.
I'm likely rolling this guy up over the weekend and sending it back, so if you like it, or think we've found something here speak now or forever hold your piece. If you don't like it- any ideas? Maybe the 7th time will be the charm...
