For awhile now, I've looked at our living room rug and HATED it with the fire of a thousand suns. I bought it back in 2011 at Garden Ridge, which is now At Home, for $99 at the height of the trellis pattern craze. I still like the trellis pattern, but after seeing it on everything and everywhere...it's kind meh, amirite? You can see a glimpse of the rug below-- I've avidly avoided including it in pictures.
Over the last four years, it started getting dingy, plus it wasn't good quality to begin with. No joke, two of the four corners never flattened out which created a tripping hazard all the time. And the color is just not me anymore.
I looked at a lot of magazines and blogs for rug inspiration and decided a few things: it had to be BRIGHT (no dark colors), not a super fancy pattern (simple is better), good quality, under $300, versatile and comfy on the tootsies.
The Rugs USA Moroccan Diamond Shag Rug kept popping up. I saw it in mid-century mod, transitional, French/cottage chic, traditional and eclectic style homes. It works with ANY decor/color scheme. I'm not kidding. It seriously does.
After reading every single one of the reviews on their website, plus reviews by several bloggers, I was sold! I placed my order during their 75% off sale, and I paid $229.75 with free shipping and no tax.
Twelve agonizing days later, it arrived on my door step. I say agonizing because some reviews stated they had their rugs in like three days, but I ordered a week before Christmas, so it is what it is.
We unrolled it and it was instantly flat and beautiful! It is also plush and luxe. It's amazeballs.
It looks great with our leather recliners and sofa. This is not your average tacky shag rug. This rug is a true beauty and so simple.
Even Daniel approves. He says, "Hello, blog readers!"
And overall, I am simply thrilled. Trellis rug be gone!
If you're in the market for a fool proof, comfy, affordable, gorgeous, timeless rug...this is it. You can't go wrong.
Now, we are slightly terrified of spilling something on it, so for now we have a no shoes on the rug and no food in the living room rule. Let's hope we can keep it looking this beautiful.
Rugs USA is always having sales, especially around holidays, so keep an eye out for 75-80% off deals. Happy shopping!
