Last week, I ordered an indoor/outdoor rug from Overstock. This one, specifically.
I had high hopes it would look and feel nice and could work well in several rooms in the new house. Well, it arrived yesterday and I’m probably going to send it back. I’ve seen indoor/outdoor rugs that have a texture similar to jute or sisal rugs. The gray areas of this rug are similar to sisal. But the ivory design is almost a basket weave texture.
The rug is thin, which I expected, but the backing is coarse. A rug pad could help, but I almost prefer getting my money back. Ben hates this rug, too, so I don’t want to keep large pieces one or both of us dislikes.
It’s just frustrating because large good rugs are hard to find, especially in a modern pattern. This smaller wool rug has a fun pattern, but it’s considerably smaller and more than $100 more.
I predict Ben and I will have a hard time agreeing on a pattern because he doesn’t like the pattern of that rug, either.
Have you recently purchased a rug you love? If so, care to share a link?
