Dash & Albert Herringbone Rug - Family Room Progress Update!

Monday, March 7, 2016

Giddy up!  Things are finally happening in the family room!  I'm not a quick decision maker and that's putting it nicely.  It takes me forever to make a decision.  So when I finally decided to order this stunning Dash and Albert Herringbone rug from Wayfair.ca, I was over the moon excited that search was finally over!

Of course, I wanted to share a peek of it in place.  Here's a look at the old rug:

And the new handwoven cotton rug:

The rug is much different than the one we had before and I'm loving it!  Now I know that I had originally said that I was going to go with a blue rug, but in the end, my love for grey won.

So now we are waiting to find a credenza (still hoping to nab a fantastic mid-century modern one) and coffee table.  I keep going back and forth between a tufted ottoman and a wood coffee table.  I just love putting my feet up while watching tv, so I'm leaning towards tufted ottoman.  Perhaps something like this, or this.  BUT!  I could always go with a wood coffee table and then order a Moroccan pouf, like this, right?!  We shall see!

As you can see in the last photos, there are a slew of fabric swatches from Tonic Living.  I'm trying to narrow down the colour-way and keep bouncing between two.  My love for pink & grey is still strong, so you may see that combo in here in some way...... I'd love to add some lumbar pillows to the chairs and I'm undecided if I should keep the blue floral pillows.  So once I have the new credenza and ottoman in place, I think it will be much easier to make a final decision.  Good news is that there's progress and we are getting there!

More to come soon!

Happy Monday!


Wayfair.ca kindly provided me with a gift card, which I chose to put towards the purchase of the new rug.  All opinions are my own and weren't influenced in any which way.

The cheapest fiber is the standard polypropylene, these rugs are known as BCF, if your are after a cheap sort term rug these are really good, after a short time though the fibre tends to flatten easily and fluff etc.is hard to vacuum off, but if used for wall hangings like some Tiger Picture Rugs it would be fine.area rug pad

  5. Shockingly, most covers are produced using engineered filaments which have been treated with brutal synthetic substances. Such synthetic substances are not straightforwardly hurtful to the wellbeing consistently, however after some time, covering can deliver emanations which are dangerous. Rug Cleaning NYC
