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
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.
At these great prices Beau can even invite his friends over….or not…
