Dash & Albert cotton rugs Maxwell turned us to last year. Just as much, we've found another affordable cotton rug that comes as large as 9x12. It's a great way to cover a larger floor area without breaking the bank: At Loggia Home, find soft blue and white Swedish Stripes:
...or bolder colors as found in Aloha:
We also like the classic-looking Mattress Ticking and Round Barn Brick:
Most of Loggia's designs are more traditional looking than Dash & Alberts', but we love them just for that. Many are available from a runner size right on up to 8x10 or even 9x12. Prices range from $34 to $400. See more (including some wool selections) at Loggia Home (the website is a work in progress).
