SHOPPING FINDS: Area Rugs
If you're looking for an area rug, the selection has grown tremendously in recent years as new materials like polypropylene in indoor/outdoor pieces and an abundance of colors and patterns in the cotton dhurries (cotton or wool flatwoven rugs from India) have flooded the market.
You don't have to look long to find a pattern and material that works for your tastes and budget. One quick scan through a search engine and you may find the answer was right under your nose - or should I say, feet.
