Outdoor Rugs for Indoor Rooms

Outdoor rugs have a lot going for them: 1) they're durable, 2) they're easy to clean, and 3) they're generally cheaper than indoor rugs. They also have a few drawbacks: 1) they're usually made from synthetic materials or blends and 2) they're not very soft underfoot. We use a synthetic blend outdoor rug in our hall, but we're considering a larger version for our den. There are lots of styles and colors to choose from, a few of which we've linked below...
