Good Questions: Contemporary Rug Recommendation?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I am looking for a 9×12 ft (approx.) contemporary area rug in shades of steel grey (dark grey or light black)- possibly a Tibetan. So far all I’ve come up with are made-to-order carpets which are pricey and unpredictable.

Any suggestions? Thanks, Marianne

Dear Marianne,

You want to look at a rug before you buy it, so if you are in NYC, here’s the three stores we would look at:
Dolma: on Lafayette Street is the best for the price point. The pic above is from Dolma.
Teh Bubbles Rug: We love this simple rug from C&B, but it’s only an 8×10
Room & Board: has a wide selection of good, contemporary patterns.
Tibet Carpet: is just down the street from us and looks like it has nice patterns and NOT designer prices. Worth a look.
