I spotted this carpet from Shaw. Shown on the front of their website it says it is a "Bound Carpet: Urban View in Cobblestone". It looks slightly blue and reminiscent of this rug from West Elm. So, I called Alexanians and they had no trouble ordering in a sample. It would have to be cut to size but the image below was promising! This weekend Aubrey drove by the store and borrowed the sample to bring home.
But look at it in real life....
So although this post shows us no further along our hunt, it is a great example illustrating why I have a phobia of buying big purchase items like rugs, sight unseen online. Although I hadn't anticipated this major colour difference in the rug, it's reminding me I should just stick close to home and buy a rug that I could easily return if its not right.
