Anyway- It's been rug time over at our house. I've been searching for a rug for a good while now. I even ordered one on Ebay then returned it after the colors in person were way different than the online colors... I swore afterwards that I would not order another rug based solely on online photos. Until I saw this one that is:
Swoon!!! It's the Pliant Laurel Rug from Anthroplogie. It had the perfect colors, it had an oriental rug feel with a modern twist. Just one problem, this rug had already been discontinued by the time I saw it. MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT.
I thought I was all out of luck until I took to Ebay and found the rugs for sale for more than half the original price!!! But another problem- the two on Ebay were only 3x5 and I needed something bigger than that.
So what did I do then? Give up? Nope! I ordered the two rugs since they were such a good deal. Then I somehow tracked down the original manufacturer of the rugs (in India BTW) and begged them to make me a third one. My thought was to piece the three together to make one large rug.
So am I a total nut job too like my husband does? Is anyone else ever desperate enough for a rug to order 3 of them to make one big one?.
I think it looks good. I have them taped down and thought about sewing them together. I probably won't just in case the next time we move it will work to my benefit to have 3x5 rugs instead of a large one
