I'd like to share one of my favorite things with you. It's not a huge secret or anything, but may help those of you who are looking for one.
And let me tell you why. There are so many natural rugs out there and I've come across quite a few of them. This is my favorite, for both the quality and the price point (the 8 x 10 is only $200!).
The "knots" are the perfect size.. large enough to create the perfect texture but small enough so that it's comfortable. It's actually very soft underfoot, and gets softer with age. The rug is also reversible which is great.
"Flax" is the best color - it's that perfect jute color that goes with everything. Some natural rugs can be too orange or too ivory or too yellow. This is just right.
A funny little story about this rug... recently there was a huge downpour here in Charlotte and the shop I work at flooded a bit. One of these rugs got soaked and the shop owner was going to toss it. It was exactly the size and color I was going to purchase for our bathroom so I said, I'll take it!! I think she thought I was crazy (it was soaked and smelled a bit). But I aired it out and let it dry and it was good as new, and it's now in our bathroom :)
Also, the Dash & Albert rug that I was going to use under our kitchen table doesn't come in a 5 x 8... bummer. So I think I'll get another one of these West Elm rugs. I could easily put one in every room, but I'll restrain myself.
I know it sounds like West Elm is paying me for this endorsement, but they aren't. I genuinely love this rug and wanted to tell you about it!
