Quest for a Lavender Rug: Which One?

Dear Resourceful Readers, I am hoping you can help with this decision. Using the top left photo as inspiration, I have been trying to find a similar rug for my living room. It seems that lavender (or lilac, plum, primrose, mauve and purple) rugs are often either shaggy or marketed and sized for children's rooms. I love the sheen on the rug in the image but more importantly looking for a rug that; a) I can afford b) is not shaggy c) is relatively close to the color of the rug in the photo d) size 5' x 8' My choices so far are as follows: Top right image: Royal Chenille Area Rug in Plum from Home Decorators Collection $89 Price is awesome but color slightly too dark. I still like it though. Bottom right image: Solid Lavender Rug from RugSmart $449 Is it too shaggy? not sure. On high end of my budget. Color is good. Bottom left image: Luxor Lavender from Rugsonline $530 AUD Color is not quite right but not bad, price is on high end and worst part, company is in Australia. I don't even want to ask what shipping costs are! Second photo: Primrose from AW Rugs & Carpet $399 Color is closest match to photo, price is okay but texture and length of carpet is different. Not sure about. Third photo: Fovama Flokati Purple Rug $308 Price is okay but not sure I want a Flokati rug at all. I am also open to other suggestions for where to look!
