Can you guess which rug I chose?

Last week I talked about shopping for a rug. After much research online and in stores I traipsed into west elm a few times and decided to go with one from their selection. And because I waited I was rewarded with a 15% reduction in price -  all rugs happened to be on sale till Sept 24th!

Can you guess which rug I chose?


 
Gorgeous texture!
I went with a 9' x 12' Chevron Knot Rug. I decided on this one because of its texture and pattern as well as because the color would be versatile in any room. I wanted to downplay the formality of the living room. 
 
The rug looks a little different in the picture above from the west elm picture below due to lighting as well as because one is a close-up. It is the same rug.


 
 
It has been delivered and I spent the better part of this afternoon moving furniture out of and back into the living room in order to position the rug pad and the rug. I did not want to wait for help to do this -  evenings are busy and so is this weekend. It was not easy but I did it.

This is a picture in the midst of the chaos, attempting to unravel the rug pad. And subsequently all the furniture was moved out of the room while I set about precisely positioning it before unwrapping the rug itself.

 
 
 
I am working on a new layout for the main seating area in the living room - something a little different. I drew it out and it seemed to work and I am trying it with the new rug. All will be revealed.
 
Enjoy your weekend as we head into Autumn!

  9. Good choice! You're right, it does look different than in their photos. I like it better "in person" :)

  10. Hi Lisa! I just stumbled upon your blog only to find that the rug you just bought is the same one I bought just a few months ago! I still love it and it has worn well - the only problem I've had with it is that it sheds more than I expected. Hope it works out for you!
