Living Room Update & Rugs USA Review

You know I'm always game to change things up a little in my home. Plus, I love super cozy and comfy (especially during these cold winter months). So, when Rugs USA offered to send over a rug to us I was thrilled. Seriously. They made my day, my week and my month.  And, my rug arrive on Christmas Eve. How doubly sweet is that?
 
I've worked with Rugs USA on a professional and personal basis (yes, I have actually purchased several rugs from them on my own) and every experience has been fantastic.
 
Are you swooning over my rug right now? I totally am!



So, if you've never purchased a rug online before here's the deal. My rug came rolled up and completely encased in a thick plastic wrapping to protect it. Once we removed that outer wrapping, there were a thinner inner wrapping, for further protection. I completely appreciate this because you know how this rug must have been tossed around in transit and it still arrived pristine. Lastly, we removed three clear strips that kept the rug wrapped and secured. (Please note that for as thrilled as I was to open this rug, Figgy was more thrilled...and nosy. Thus, the photo bombing.)






Since I chose to get a shag rug (The Marrakesh Shag) and the pile is quite high, it was (obviously) flattened from the way it had been packaged. That was simply fixed with a quick vacuum.

 


You have no idea how long I have been pining for a rug like this. It's been a long, long time. I love how the design meshes so well with the color of our gray chair and the cream goes perfectly with our couch and coffee table. This rug truly feels like the missing piece to our living room!




And let me tell you, the plushness of the rug did not disappoint. It feels so wonderful underfoot, plus I love that it is 100% wool.




Have I mentioned that I love online shopping? Because I really, really do! How awesome is it that I can have a rug shipped right to my home without having to lug it home from a store. Plus, Rugs USA offer very frequent promo codes for extra savings!
