And my search turned up this delightful option from Safavieh on Wayfair - LOVE the colors, texture seems durable (read: family friendly), price is amazing (read: low commitment)...perfect for a family space. Like, maybe my basement playroom extension that has yet to be built.
I wonder if it's soft enough for an area that your kids aren't going to trample. I think its indoor/outdoor which always makes me think it will be slightly crunchy, but I do love the pattern for a living room or den. Hmmmm...
Oh and it comes in loads of sizes, so a runner would also be a great option...see it here.
Are you always searching for rugs? Where do you look?
