Some renters lament their white box, longing to throw paint on the walls. If painting your space is not an option for you, make a statement with a colorful area rug. You won't have to worry about what your landlord will say, plus you can take the color to your next rental.
All the rugs featured here are made of wool, which is a great choice because of its naturally plush pile and stain and odor resistant qualities. It's also an eco-friendly material. In general, wool rugs tend to be more expensive — the ones featured here are priced in the low to mid range for wool rugs.
