Q: I have this rug in my living room. I love the look of it and it meshes well with my midcentury-ish style, but it has been a bit of a disaster. It is flatweave and picks up dirt so easily (much more easily than my hooked wool rugs with white on them) and has snags all over. We've only had it for about 6 months and it looks at least 5 years old. We have two dogs, a cat and a baby on the way and it's not practical in many ways. Our wool rugs have held up much better with the animals. So, we are looking to replace it.
We are looking for an 8x10-ish rug that is NOT flatweave. My husband is insisting that it have no white, and that is where I am getting stuck. I'm looking for a similar style (geometric pattern, clean lines) with grey as the predominant color with no black. I'm open to other colors on the rug in addition to the grey (as long as it would work with the pale yellow, teal and walnut wood in my room). We'd like to spend under 1000. Thanks in advance!
