obsessing over…

I really really really really want a couple of rugs for the apartment… this however is not an easy decision.  I have however obsessively online stalked some different sources and have narrowed it down. I thought putting them all together here would help me make a decision.

Basically I want one rug around 5 x 8 for the bedroom… which currently looks like this…

pretty much white/black/grey palette… white lacquered bed, white bubble lamps… currently in need of 2 side tables, smaller 3 drawer chest, comfy lounge chair and a rug.. I’ve always been obsessed with the Beni Quarain rugs but they cost both an arm and a leg.. however West Elm with its new style direction is sourcing gorgeous housewares from small artisans. AND affordable too!

LOVE! Priced between $1299.00- $1.99 depending on size… a bit on the expensive side, but sigh, love them…

I also found these gems on ebay…
