I wanted a fluffy rug to finish out the living room and add contrast to the hard wood floors. Thus started my latest home decorating quest.
I went online and found these folks The Perfect Rug. I liked their site right away and I signed up to get a rug sample. To my surprise, they sent a nice note, several similar samples, a measuring tape and samples of the mat I could put under the rug. It was a complete support system.
I found the sample I wanted and measured the space and got my online quote. To be fair, I thought the price of the rug was a little high (around $900 for a 9 x 13) so I went to two local stores – one a big-box store and one specializing in carpet. The big box store would cut me a rug, but they wouldn’t bind it. Huh? That’s no use.
The local one specializing in carpet has some similar rugs, but I didn’t like their underlay and they had only one option. Plus, their price was just as high as The Perfect Rug, so back to the web I went.
I ordered the rug and binding and waited. Yesterday, my rug was delivered.
So, I moved all the furniture back out of the living room and began to unwrap the rug. It was carefully packed – so I don’t see any way this rug could have been harmed or stained.
Start to finish, laying out the rug and getting everything back in place took me (all by myself – I was too impatient to wait for Mr. Man) over an hour.
Once all the furniture was put back in place (including Max’s ottoman) it looks really nice. Just a little touch of warmth to highlight the floors, I think.
It will do.
I have to say if you’ve got a special spot and you want a specific rug, these guys are great. Their support was top-notch and they delivered the exact rug I asked for – very nice. I love it when a company does the right thing.
