Dear AT,

My husband and I could use some suggestions for a rug.

Our sofa is taupe-ish and our chair is chartreuse.

We currently have an off-white shag rug that had the rug for 2 years now and it just won't stop shedding.

We've finally had enough and are looking for a replacement.

I'd love to get another light colored rug to contrast with the dark wood floor, but it will be getting a lot of traffic (and eventually a baby will be in the picture), so it seems a bit impractical.

Any suggestions for a rug that will work in this room and can stand up to constant traffic?...

Would some sort of jute or sisal work here?

We'd also like to keep the price in the $300 or less range.

Thanks! Sasha
