I had a weak moment this morning and I bought another rug. Oops. Clearly I am going to need to do some pretty extreme levels of selling stuff, or maybe, think about some sort of employment. LOL
I'm a big fan of Persian Carpet's clearance rug page
and I drop by too frequently. I was seriously tempted by their Tulip rug last month, but I decided there was too much green and not enough yellow. (It has since sold out.)
They've obviously been testing some new designs because they've had quite a few prototypes lately. I was tempted by this one too. (Also sold now.)
Today when I checked in they had another one-of-a-kind hand-knotted prototype rug. This design appears to be a close cousin to William Morris' "The Rose" rug design from 1897; they call it the "Essex." I've not seen this design with a green border before. I'll have to go dig thru my William Morris books and see if I can find this exact rug design.
It's a 10x14 though, so it's going to end up in the living room which means I'll be shuffling the new Fintona rug
, into the front library area. While the rug already in there is hand-knotted, the color doesn't go well with our color scheme.
|The rug we'll now be selling off|
At some point I'll be in the market for a rug for the dining room, but I better stop now. Jeff only has so much patience for shuffling furniture/rugs and I'm already pushing my luck.
Now that's funny....ReplyDelete
If only it was a joke. LOLDelete
That tulip caught my eye cause it had all the greens and if I ever finally decide on a green it would probably match one of the greens in the rug. Too bad it is sold out.ReplyDelete
Love the rug you bought.
Yeah, I almost bought the Tulip. I really liked it, but I was too indecisive. I hope I love the rug I did buy when it arrives next week. LOLDelete
I love how you aren't afraid to get the BIG rug for your big room ... and I know that it will look dynamite!! (Now I'm off to discover the wonders on this rug site. Thanks for the link and the temptation.)ReplyDelete
Thanks. We'll see if I regret it. LOLDelete
I hope you enjoy the Persian Carpet website.
The colors look much milder in your new carpet, I hope they look the same in real life, Sharon!ReplyDelete
I hope so. I'm a little anxious while I wait for it to be delivered. I hope it looks OK with the other rug.Delete
