Nice and New: West Elm Chunky Plaited Wool Rug

I've long been a fan of the West Elm Cable Rug, due to its plushness, muted gray or ivory color, and its modern look. But, I've heard that the shag rug has a terrible shedding problem, and I worry that it'll go out of style fast. So, I'm delighted with the new West Elm Chunky Plaited Wool Rug ($119-599), which looks equally soft, is offered in the same muted gray or ivory, and is notably modern. It's not exactly a timeless piece, but at least it's not a "trend item" like shag rugs these days. You usually see plaits on a J. Crew sweater, so I find it fun and fresh to see them on the floor. What do you think? Like it?

Rag rugs are great for the bathroom but really they are so 70's . Check out these alternatives http://www.rugsusa.com/rugsusa/control/keywordsearch?SEARCH_STRING=Rag

I love it, but would it pill like a sweater?

I like this, especially against the dark wood! It does look soft & warm & cozy.

I have the West Elm cable rug. It sheds TERRIBLY. And my dog has ripped out the cables numerous times. I don't know how my times I've had to get down on my hands and knees and re-thread the cable yarns. I love this braided sweater rug, but I wonder if it has the same problem.

This is a great variation on the usual cable/shag rugs I see all the time. I like it.

I LOVE! We have laminate hardwood throughout our home with no rugs (yet) in the bedroom. These would be great, one on either side of the bed, for the cooler winter months.
