Any Suggestions

I'm really thinking my living room needs a rug. I was thinking a rectangular braided jute rug would probably be just perfect. It would need to be at least an 8 x 11 size or bigger. I have searched the Internet and can't seem to find what I am looking for. I have seen many home pictures with these rugs so I know they are out there. I just don't know where. Here is a picture of one similar to what I am talking about. It is from JC Pennys. It isn't exactly the color I want but it would do if I can't find anything else.

I'm looking for something with some blues, greens, blacks and golds in it. This rug at Pennys is around $250.00. Does anyone know if this is a good price should I decide to get it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Enjoy your week friend.

  1. We are looking for the same thing...very hard to find for what we can afford!

  2. Amy,
    We are starting to carry a new line of earth rugs..hope to have them online soon. But you can go to pick one you like and contact me for a price for quote for now. I will be happy to give you a dicount too.

  3. Hi Amy,

    Try out Earth Rugs. They are made of jute, quite durable and if you like blacks and browns with a hint of burgundy and green, try the colour #99. I have just received my oval 8x11 that I ordered, but they do have a rectangle that is 8x10. They do sell wholesale but you may be able to order one through a local store, or get your own tax ID number. Good luck!

  4. I have purchased that exact rug, love it, I was able to get it off of the internet from Jcpennys for 199.00.
    Good luck

  5. You can check with Anitza from She solds rugs in her store. Probably she can help you.

  6. You might try the Christmas 2009 Country House catalog, page 36. They have oval and rectangle braided jute rugs. Hope this helps.

  7. Hi Amy,

    I bought my rug at Downeast Rug Company. They have lots of sizes and colors to choose from.

    Good luck!

  8. I have some of the earth rugs and love them. I have a rug just under my coffee table - it wasn't as expensive as the big ones and yet it helps warm up the space.

  9. I love these rugs and would like one too - here's a link and the prices don't seem too bad either.


  10. I found one in the outlet store of JCP that was a 9 x 11 rectangle rug. Original price was $650 (yikes!) I only paid $149 and got free s/h! I also went through ebates and got a percentage back in my ebates account. Can't beat that!

  11. looks nice. we bought out braided rug at Lowes...or Home Depot. It's held up great under the kitchen table (lots of use) for five years. just a thought.

  12. Try searching the ebay stores for jute braided rugs, Amy! I'm not sure how much cheaper they will be than that, but there are several pretty patterns and colors to choose from! I like what you have in mind!

    Thanks again for checking on me and for your sweet comments on my blog!

    You have a great weekend!

  13. Hi, I just found your blog tonight and wanted to tell you how much i like it:) I have the exact rug that you have in the picture. I do love it, but i will say , if you have a rug beater on your vaccuum don't use it. I have 2 dogs so i need to vaccuum often and it was something i never thought about. My rug beater caused the stitching betwen the braids to fall apart. Every once in a while i spend some time on the floor stitching it back together. Just thought i would share that word of caution with you. Good luck in your search. Sara
