Choosing a rug out of almost infinite possibilities though, can be daunting. That’s why, when I was given the chance to test out an area rug from Rugs USA , I decided to go with the classic powerhouse of all rugs – a beige jute 5’ x 8’ rug, with a smart, well-tailored trim to match - the Maui Jute Beige Rug. I knew I couldn’t go wrong with a classic rug that would allow other objects in the room to take center stage while silently tying the room together.
As far as craftsman ship goes, the rug I received does not disappoint – the jute seems very tightly and evenly woven. I was also very pleasantly surprised to discover that there is a rubber backing on the rug, so I don’t need to purchase a separate pad. Like most natural fiber rugs, it is not the softest underfoot, so if you have a lot of little ones who like to play on the floor it might not be the best bet. I haven’t had it long enough to tell how long it will last, but it seems to be very durable, and I have had to spot clean it twice, and it cleaned quickly and easily.
What I am especially excited about is the neutral base for the room that will allow me to add a lot of fun bright throw pillows on the couch this spring and summer, without worrying that they will clash with the rug.
Next time your floors start whining for a new area rug or carpet, RugsUSA.com has a plethora of really well priced rugs. If a neutral, natural fiber rug like mine bores you, not to worry - as they have categories ranging from “Animal Print,” “Braided,” “Kids,” “Natural Fibers,” “Southwestern,” “Shag,” “Outdoor,” “Country & Floral,” and “Solid & Striped.”
