Happy Labor Day! Hope you are all enjoying lots of sun, food, family, and maybe a little booze. If you are in the market for a rug but have been dragging your feet (because let's face it, rugs are expensive), I insist you drop everything you're doing and head over to RugsUSA right now. (No, they are not sponsoring this post, I'm honestly just blown away by the deal I got this past Saturday.)
As usual, my Saturday night routine consisted of scouring Pinterest, Instagram, and my favorite blogs for inspiration and ideas for our home. I came across this image that I had found on Kirsten Krason of House of Jade Interior's Instagram and saved to my camera roll a few weeks ago. How amazing is this living room?
I remember seeing this space and falling completely in love with every detail, especially the rug. I've seen this style of Moroccan shag a number of places before, and it always catches my eye.
For some time now I have wanted to replace the beige rug behind our leather couch in the living room. That rug currently serves as a play area for Lucy since her toy box is nearby and where she often sits while Mila lays on her bug mat. The rug we currently have is a really nice one from Target but it's not very soft for young bums to sit, play, and roll all over, especially once Mila starts crawling. This area in our living room needs some help anyway. It's the most scattered, unfinished part of our living room and yet it's the first area in our house that guests see when they walk through the front door. It's a hub for toys and baby things (although I have something in the works for additional toy storage and a super fun play space.) The Moroccan shag appealed to me as it satisfies my need for neutrals pieces in our living room, but is super soft and still has an elegant look to it. I've seen these rugs a number of places and have toyed with the idea of getting one like this, but never wanted to pay the price. I'm also pretty picky and want a shag where the diamond pattern is very thin. There are many, less expensive versions where the lines are thicker and to me it just doesn't carry the same look.
I decided to look up some rugs and day dream a bit. Imagine my surprise when I stopped by RugsUSA and saw this amazing promotion:
I didn't let myself get too excited. Whenever I see these promos on a website they are usually limited to only certain styles, and never the ones you want. Again, for fun I looked at the Moroccan Shag rugs until I found the style and look I liked. I decided to pick a size and give the promo code a whirl, figuring it would say my choice wasn't eligible for the promotion.
I could not believe my eyes when my 5'x7', $546 rug jumped down to $163.80. Sold. I hit 'check out' immediately for fear that the rug would go OOS if I waited more than 2 minutes.
I am thrilled to have scored such an amazing deal that I wanted to make sure I shared it with you all. I'm all about helping out a fellow home decor lover and this promo seems almost too good to be true. Apparently the 70% promo works on all rugs, plus there's an 80% promo for items that are discontinued or on closeout.
Did you score any great Labor Day deals?
