Now all we need is a new rug!
Here are other rugs I am drawn to:
FAMILY rug from CB2. However, $899 is too much to spend on something that will likely get dirty. Accidents will happen.
Olin rug at Crate and Barrel is nice (I haven't seen it in person), and the right price...what do you think of stripes?
The Paxton Mink Rug, from Crate and Barrel, is another option. Pretty neutral...
We are also exploring carpet remnants. We checked out Alexanian. They don't keep scraps, so you have to custom order a rug. A carpet remnant with binding starts just under $300. Home depot has carpet remnants for $79 - however, none of them were going to work in our space. We we try a few more Home Depots and see what turns up (we went to the one in Leaside).
What rug do you think would work best the space? Do you have any rug recommendations? We want to avoid anything shaggy, or anything that might shed. If you have a cowhide & kids - please let me know how that is working out!
