The World Market jute rug is really great. It's very textural, which I like, and it's actually pretty soft underfoot. I'm really glad I went with the 9x12 (and I'm glad I got it when I did! It looks like they are sold out right now in that size, but I'm sure they will get more in).
(sorry for the bad iPhone pictures. I literally just took them and the sun's not quite out yet)
See the paws in the last pic? ha
Unfortunately the west elm rug was too small.. bummer! But I do have another one in mind, but it's backordered until mid Nov. I'll definitely update you when I get it!
What I really, really want for this room is custom pleated drapery from my workroom, so I'm saving up for that someday.
However, I actually have three pairs of plain white IKEA drapes in my attic, and I bought the curtain hardware for this room ages ago when it was on sale at Restoration Hardware, so I may put those up just to finally feel like this room is "done".
Anyway, I got off topic - the point of this post is to tell you I really like the quality of the World Market jute rug :) Definitely consider it if you are in the market for one!
