I've been on the hunt for a new rug for a while. Another thing I have champagne taste on a beer budget or whatever for. I really yearned for a rug from my favorite store Woven Treasures on South Street. The owner goes to Turkey every year and picks out the most amazing rugs to ship back. But I was surprised with a gorgeous runner for xmas from there about 2 x 5 (Nug has my same taste) and that's all I can really hope for in life.
After a few months of browsing around, I stumbled across Lulu and Georgia. It has some really beautiful rugs and they range in price for a 5 x 8 from about $150-$500 so there is definitely room to sneak in on the cheap side. I just missed the one above before it sold out, it's so good! I think its going to be a good resource for patterns, some of which might make there way in my paintings at some point.
