The Rug Rat

November 25, 2008

Frugal, Reviews

I am kicking myself today. See, last month we (finally) bought an area rug to lay over our laminate floor in our living room. We had shopped and shopped at every local rug store around, looking for deals on a large area rug (our living room is 15 x 17 and we wanted an area rug about 8 x 10 or so). NOTHING. Couldn’t find a thing that was affordable at that size, that looked really nice. I wanted an old-fashioned design, not really Persian, but something with roses and that was red (my living room walls are beige). We compromised on a very cheap area rug at our local big box home improvement store, for about $150. It’s dark brown and it’s OK… but it’s not the rose, red, pretty area rug that I had in mind. I just couldn’t force myself to pay $700 at the rug stores for an 8 x 10 area rug!

Well, I’m kicking myself because this morning I saw rugs at, and they have terrific prices! Why didn’t I think to look online for rugs!? has a really incredible selection of clearance rack area rugs, silk rugs, wool rugs, and more. And I love their “Rug of the Day” special where you can nab a beautiful rug for a dirt-cheap price.

And look what I found there. *sigh* A similar rug was on sale at the retailer 5 miles from me, and they were charging $679 for it. Guess how much it is at $379. Wow! I just might still get it… I’m sure we can put the cheapo brown one in another room…

If you’re looking for beautiful rugs (some are made of New Zealand wool, some silk from Belgium, others of olefin from Turkey), check out BEFORE you are stricken with sticker shock from the local retailers. The prices are really outstanding, and the selection is amazing! There is free shipping on all items! SuperiorRugs is based in New Jersey and has been in business since 1997. Their prices on cheap rugs can’t be beat- check them out! I know I definitely will.
