Magic Carpet Ride…

  1. I love the way they look but I do have always been afraid they would bunch. Rugs are so important. I didn’t have one for a long time in my dining room and when I finally got one I wondered why I had waited so long.

  2. patty blaettler says:

    try dash and albert rugs nice choice of patterns which are fresh and modern. the prices are reasonable, too.

  3. Ashley says:

    Any idea how much the dhurries are? I love MW too, but find her prices prohibitively expensive…maybe these are just the ticket!

  4. Sara says:

    Those MW rugs are stunning…hard to compete, I agree. I do think flatter weave rugs tend to bunch more in high traffic areas…isn’t it sad that they are more affordable? We have a Tibetan hand woven yak wool rug in our living room that will stay with us until we die b/c my husband got it in Tibet when he went to China for a conference and was able to do a side trip. It does bunch a little on the ends, but it’s not too bad (and not in a high traffic area). Maybe it helps that our couch and chairs sit on the edge?

    I was just noticing how dingy and worn out my family room rug (a price-based compromise from Home Goods 6 years ago) is, and would love a new one in there. Probably not in the cards right now, though, b/c we will probably move next year. Rugs are so hard…they make such a huge impact and can be so beautiful, but cost a lot.

    Maybe you’ll find new inspiration when you go to the market? So exciting that you’ll be going!

      Hopefully market will bring about a bunch of new sources that I can share with all. I’m really excited too!

    Are you kidding me! AHhhh! Love can’t wait to check them out!

  6. Rachel says:

    Ooh, good question! I would love to know what other people have experienced as well. Or if anyone has a recommendation for really high quality rug pad that will work with a flat weave style.

    We have one as a runner not realizing how annoying it would be in a high traffic area. But I love the rug itself so I’m considering getting a better option for the runner that will stay put and buying a larger version of the runner to go in our living area. There would be furniture on parts of it, but I’m still curious if it will bunch in the areas it’s not directly held down by something.

    I love all those rugs.. likely don’t ship to Canada though! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Marissa Waddell {Roost} says:

    These are really beautiful, but the bunching drives me mad. I bet it would be okay with a fair amount of furniture holding it down. It’s hard to have your heart set on MW… her rugs are AMAZING and none of the knockoffs can really compete. Have you checked CSN? Not sure of the quality, but they have some similar rugs.

    • effortless says:

      I know the bunching really does drive me bonkers. I think I need something thicker. Looking into options from The Rug Market.

  9. andrea p says:

    Try Dash and Albert rugs. The prices are more wallet friendly & they seem to be very popular right now ๐Ÿ™‚

    • effortless says:

      I do enjoy Dash and Albert, but style wise they don’t really work in the room. Thanks for the help. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Sara says:

    Ok, I’m sure you know about this, and the prices are still not (what I would call) super budget-friendly, but there is this:

  11. Kristy Swain says:

    Those are nice looking, but yeah, I agree about the bunching up issue… I’m going to check out those links, though!

  12. Jeannene says:

    HI,

    I am in the same boat. I LOVE the MW rugs, but I need to put gas in my car! I was thinking of making another floorcloth that looks like a MW rug. No it won’t have the soft pile, but they are great and wear like iron. I have made a ton of them, and have the best guy who supplies the highest quality canvas. If you want I will give you his info.

  14. Lee says:

    Gorgeous. I think I could live with the bunching to get to look at one of these every day.

  15. I actually love flat-weave rugs, but I always invest in nicer, thicker rug pads – not the ones that look like webbing, but rather are solid, thick pieces of foamy-felt with a tacky surface. I I find they really grip the rug much better, and offer a tad more softness underfoot.
    Definitely let us know about pricing w/ this source – it looks promising!

    P.S. – Can’t even TELL you how “jeally beans” I am that you’re going to High Point! Can’t wait to hear all ’bout it!

  16. Some cute graphic rugs on 2modern.com

    Of course , I got hooked on a Dvid Hicks style Y geometric from there that is $$.
    Can’t wait to hear about high point. Wish I could go!

  17. Hillary Ross says:

    Did you ever hear back from them on pricing! I just saw this post at the bottom of your post today and was reminded how much I loved these rugs? Any luck with a rug for your living room?

  18. Svetla says:

    i love dhurries and flatweaves and have them all over my house–no bunching. i think the trick is to pick ones that are mostly wool as opposed to cotton. i also use the thick “supreme deluxe” rug pads from overstock underneath.

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldnโ€™t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that itโ€™s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
