Problem is, I am clueless when it comes to rugs. "They" say a room should be designed around a rug, but if that were the case in our house, we would have nothing done. We've got seagrass in the living room, and a cheap-o fake natural fiber from Wal-Mart in the kitchen. We bought it when we were desperate for something in our apartment, and hey, it works.
This custom beauty by designer Markharm Roberts caught my eye. And in case you are wondering, those are hand-stenciled stripes on sisal. YUM.

Also spotted recently, Erika's lovely handiwork. Don't have stairs, but this would be fab in our long, boring hallway.
What kind of things do you use to cover your floors? What would you choose if you could have anything?
