Good Questions: Looking for large area rug?

An email from Catherine I'm looking to get an area rug for my living room in a 9' x 21' size. I'm looking for something in wool, but very simple, with no pattern (or something very, very subtle). Since I don't need anything fancy, I'm not even sure where to look. Any suggestions?

Hi Catherine! For something that large, and especially if you're not concerned with a pattern, you might consider going to a regular carpeting store or carpet warehouse and seeing if they have any remnants that fit that size. Normally they can bind the edges for you and the results can give you a real custom look and also be quite cost effective. Does anyone have any experience with this or have any other suggestions?
