i have been eyeing a rug from pottery barn for a while now. it’s their flat-braided natural jute rug.
i need an 8’x10’ in my living area. the problem is that i don’t want to spend $500 for it. i love natural fiber rugs but some of them can be quite rough on the footsies. this one is so unbelievably soft though. it’s like you’re walking on a cloud. i’ve seen them at the pottery barn outlet up in dawsonville, ga before but i haven’t had a chance to get back up there to see if they have one now. the last few times i’ve made it up there they haven’t had an 8x10 in.
i also like this one from ballard designs. i haven’t seen it in person but the description says it’s “surprisingly soft.” it’s right at $300 after you add the $20 up charge for an 8’ x 10’.
i’m going to throw this out to all my reader’s. have any of you found a very soft, inexpensive jute rug? if so, where? i’m looking for something less than $250. i’d be thrilled with one for around $150, but i think that might be pushing it to think that i could find one for less than $200. hopefully one of you has an answer. surely there has got to be one for less than $300 out there.
please help me if you have any insight on soft braided jute rugs.
