Surprise surprise, I've been shopping at HomeGoods/Marshalls/TJMaxx again and I found another awesome rug! I've kept an eye out for a rug for our foyer area near the dining room. I thought I'd go with something neutral like a gray color but when I saw this rug I KNEW it would match the teal chairs we have in our family room and tie everything nicely together.
They had multiple size in this color and pattern. I couldn't decide on size so I brought home this 4x6 foot rug and also a 2.5x4 foot rug. Yes, I'm incredibly indecisive even after texting a photo to Eric to which he replied "Go big" but after further indecisiveness from me he said get both and take one back (which is also what my mom suggested). I'm no stranger to buying/ordering multiple things knowing I will be returning something or even most of it. Everyone does that right??
Of course after seeing it in the space, the larger 4x6 foot rug for $80 was the clear winner. Who knows how the color looks on your computer screen but I assure you it is a deep teal just like our chairs. It just brightens up the space so nicely!
So obviously we've been really happy with our first rug purchase for the family room and after about the first month of vacuuming it 1-2 times per week due to all the shedding, it is hardly shedding much at all now and we are just vacuuming it once ever 2 weeks or so. This new rug isn't wool so it won't be doing that. Since it is not wool, it's not as soft and cushy as the other rug but for using in a foyer and for a cheaper price (a 4x6 wool rug would be pricier and who wants to spend a lot of money on a rug that's not in an area they are hanging out in) that is just fine with me.
So after two great rug experiences, I'm all about HomeGoods rugs! Our small kitchen rug in front of the sink is also doing great in case you were curious. It vacuums up really nicely with our small vacuum or the attachment arm from our big vacuum..
Any other places you love to buy rugs?
