Would You Dress Your Floors in Monogrammed Rugs?

This George Monogram ($30 to $35/sq. ft.) by Diane Elson Bankoff is part of Elson & Co.'s children's collection, and I assume it's meant for a nursery. I'm not going to lie: It's certainly a good-looking rug. But personally, I feel that monograms are best left on the doormats, flasks, or preppy L.L. Bean tote bags of the world. Covering your floor in a fun pattern, or a classic Kilim, says more about who you are than a trio of initials ever will. But I suppose a monogrammed rug is one step up from a dull sisal. Tell me what you think: Would you or wouldn't you?

I'm not so into myself that I would walk on my own initials.

I love the monogrammed look but the jury is still out on having it on a rug. Maybe in a dressing room or in a walk-in closet...an area a that is more personal to the owner.

i agree; it would look good as like.. a bath mat, or if you have "his/her & her/his" sinks, they can go infront of those. or maybe infront of a bed for a small child or possibly at an exterior doorway..like the front door. but in that case, it'd be just one big letter, instead of 3 initials. like i've already thought about having a big B monogrammed mat for when i own my own home. but why are they called "monogrammed" if they sometimes have 3 letters? "mono" means "one"...
