Anyway, one of those things that can easily be checked off our to do list is a rug for our dining room.
I'm 100% certain this purchase won't happen until after Christmas but it's fun to daydream right now!
Here's what I was initially thinking for the room/rug - cream chairs with a gray rug:
But then I bought gray chairs so a gray rug is now out. Why? I just think a gray rug with gray chairs would be too monochromatic.
Since our house has an open floor plan, I've thought about buying another one of Nate Berkus' dhurrie rugs (like the one we have in our living room) to help the rooms feel more unified since they occupy the same space:
The rug is virtually indestructible and I think it'd work well under a dining table with chairs sliding on top of it. Plus the gray and yellow combo would look nice together :)
I've been considering other options as well like this one:
I like that the chevron pattern coordinates with my Nate Berkus rug but it's not an identical match. I also like that the navy blue ties in with the drapes on our sliding glass door and the console table I made over. The only con that I can think of is that it's wool and I'm worried that it won't clean up as well as a natural fiber rug. Oh and the pattern is a little busy.
I also like this rug:
I actually used to have this rug (in gray) but I sold it before we moved because the one I received was messed up in a lot of places and it was going to cost me more than I paid for the rug to ship it back.
I'm hesitant to order another one for that reason but I do love the pattern and think it'd pair well with my NB one. Cons? It's also wool and my dogs claws tore the crap out of our other one.
Other options include:
A faux cowhide rug //
A jute fiber rug //
And 'Suit Yourself' FLOR Tiles //

If you couldn't tell by now, I'm having trouble deciding. Maybe that's why our house isn't as far along as I'd like it to be ;)
Which rug would you choose? Have another rug idea? Please share!
