Cheap Chic Rugs Under $300

I have a dog puppy named Beau. He’s a sweet and very loveable.

He also drags charred firewood into the house.  He rolls all over the rugs after a swim. I had nice rugs in my house BB. They are all now MIA.  I would like to test the waters now that Beau is grown up and mature (at least he doesn’t eat them anymore).  I am not going to experiment with an expensive Oushak, Kilim or Needlepoint.    Sooo… I have been on the search for some inexpensive alternatives and have been surprised by what I have found.  World Market has their plain weave jute rug in several sizes http://www.worldmarket.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4286629&clickid=body_rv_img, ranging from $16.99 for a throw to $149.99 for a 6 x 9.  I used the small ones at our like house in the bathrooms.

The Tarnby rug from IKEA http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60050172/#/80050171 is an even better bargain at $149.00 for a  6’7 x 9’ 10. I am trying this in my family room . Beau likes it too.

Slightly more expensive but on sale right now at PB, their Flat Braided Jute Rug http://www.potterybarn.com/products/flat-braid-jute-rug/?pkey=climited-rugs , $289.00 for a 5 x 8.

I have not seen this one in person but am loving the Recycled Denim Jute Rug from West Elm  http://www.westelm.com/products/recycled-denim-jute-rug-t011/?pkey=crugs-by-material $279 for an 8 x 10

Their Gradiated Stripe Rug is just $299 for a 9 x 12  http://www.westelm.com/products/gradiated-stripe-cotton-rug-t003/?pkey=cchenille-cotton-rugs.  I think that black and white beauty would look great in my guest room.

Better yet and with an even better price point…how about the Stockholm Rand from IKEA http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80104862/#/80104862 at $199 for a 5’7 x 7’ 10

IKEA STOCKHOLM RAND Rug, flatwoven IKEA The rug is hand-woven by skilled craftsmen, and is therefore unique.

I just had a client order Pottery Barn’s 8’Round Jute Rug  http://www.potterybarn.com/products/round-jute-rug/, for $199.00.  It is a huge bargain and it is so hard to find non custom good looking round rugs at a decent price point.

  1. Beau is a lucky boy! He and his friends are having a grand time, aren't they? Great post, Cindy. I'm on the hunt for an inexpensive rug for our newly renovated basement. I can totally relate to everything. With 2 dogs, it's double the trouble. Cheers!

  6. You are so funny, Cindy. Loved this post...I'm glad Beau likes your new choices in rugs...I think the black and white stripped rug would show off his white coat the best...

  10. THis is cute. I live on a farm and we are getting a golden retriever puppy next week! Wish me luck, since I have spent the last few empty nest years redecorating my house.. What's life without animals, anyway?

  11. I'd like your input on the Ikea rug- how is it holding up a year later? Does it shed? Has it held up against "puppy-paws"? I am considering this for my family room but have concerns for the wear and tear- especially with our dog.
