Ever since I saw this photo of Jenna Lyon's dressing room, I've been obsessing about this chocolate striped rug. I mean, OBSESSING!!! I already have a couple of really gorgeous thread bare persian rugs like the one on top of this rug, but I need to have, cannot live without, the chocolate striped rug.
But, since most of us don't have neither the chocolate striped rug nor Jenna's pocket book, I've taken it upon myself to find a similar rug that still allows most of us to pay our kids' school tuition.
Enter my new best friend, the Dash & Albert Rug Company.
Founded in 2003, Dash & Albert boasts a collection of rugs that are as durable as they are beautiful and, most importantly, affordable. No kidding. A friend of mine has one of their stunning indoor/outdoor striped rug in her kids' playroom (the Gunnison style) and that thing can take any type of spill whatsoever. You just wipe it off and all is back to normal.
But aside from being practical and affordable, they are just plain beautiful. But don't take my word for it. Take a look for yourself. I'm already in love with the new Swedish Stripe for my own kids' playroom and the chocolate mattress ticking to layer with my broken in antique rug in the family room. They come in both hand woven cotton and in the outdoor/indoor. (Oh, and I love the dogs in the photo. One of them is actually Dash).
