Living Rooms Direct - Area Rug Review

If you recall, I told you I would be reviewing this beautiful rug from Living Rooms Direct. This company has TONS of dining room furniture, plus all kinds of accessories, including things for the breakfast nook along with items for both your indoor and outdoor dining space, at prices to fit EVERY ONE'S budget!!


Well, the rug arrive within days of my ordering it... so quickly, in fact, that Bill was still in the hospital, and I really did not have the time to even LOOK at it, let alone take it out of the packaging. I literally, just dropped it on the dining room table all rolled up, and left it there for THREE days.


When Bill got home from the hospital and I finally took it out of the plastic wrapping, my first thought was, GREAT, how long is this gonna take to lay flat? I couldn't believe it when it simply just unrolled out of the package and went right down FLAT. I was impressed.



Next, I ~ along with Nano's help ~ as he believes anything that comes in the mail or from UPS or FedEx belongs to him ~ inspected the rug for any loose threads (NONE); and the edging and the backing to see how it was made. I am thrilled to report that it is very tightly woven and the edges are sewn very well and do not appear to have any flaws or look as if it will unravel anytime soon. Nano seems to agree with me................


We originally got the rug to sit under the ottoman of the recliner that Bill falls asleep in front of watches TV in and I work on my laptop in. This way the ottoman doesn't slide when I put my feet up on it. The rug is the perfect color and size for our room.... When it arrived, we put it down, and YES, the color was just right, and the size, EVEN BETTER (I sound like Goldilocks). However, it seems someone else in the house had other plans.......

Nano has commandeered the new rug as his own... apparently it is also extremely comfortable!

The only drawback I have with the rug is that it has to be dry cleaned as it is 100% wool, but, because it is only 2' x 3' it really should not be that expensive. Also, Nano doesn't shed, so we really shouldn't have to have it cleaned that often; and it can be spot cleaned if necessary with warm soapy water.

We do use the rug for it's original purpose, and are genuinely pleased with the quality and look of this rug. It is perfect for what we needed it for and then some. I would like to thank Suzanne Turnbull and CNS Stores for providing me with this rug to review. Nano would also like to thank them, as it is now his resting place in the family room, whether Bill is watching TV or I am working on the laptop.
The only compensation received for this review is the product received for the review ~ the opinions expressed in the review are those of the reviewer only and are not in any way influenced by the company providing the product. Thank you, Lorie.

What a great review - I love the details! Nano looks like a happy camper...he is awfully cute.

The rug looks pretty comfortable - and that's neat how it laid flat right after being rolled up. It usually takes days to do that!

Thanks for this info- I will keep them in mind, as we are redoing several rooms in our house and I will need area rugs to spruce up the rooms for the final touches!
