Two Area Rugs for Less than the Price of One

I love how an area rug grounds any space.  Area rugs instantly pull a seating area together.
Here is my outdoor seating area last year.  It's beautiful, but I thought an
outdoor rug would help define the area and make it feel more like a real room.
  However, outdoor rugs of this size (9x12) are expensive.
That's why when I saw this outdoor mat on QVC, I had to get it.  It happened to be the today's special value, so it was only $39!!  I'm not really a big QVC shopper, but when I was flipping through the channels I saw this and I knew it was exactly what I was looking for.
Here's another view.  The wrinkles in it have softened since I took this photo the day I opened the mat.
It's soft underfoot and dirt can be easily blown or hosed off.  It is light-weight and it folds up easily for storage during the winter.  Okay...I know, I sound like a commercial.
While I was at it, I bought one for the seating area by my pool.  The 5x7 was only $27 that day.
All the beauty and benefits of an outdoor rug, but at a fraction of the price.  
Two large rugs for under $70!  Now that's a bargain!

Can't wait to hear what you think.

Wow! I have been thinking about outdoor rugs... as you say they sort of finish the area off nicely, but yes expensive! Who'd have thought of QVC! I never bother to look at shopping channels which is a surprise considering how I LOVE shopping lol!

I love the ones you got, the colors and design are perfect for what you already had!

Now that is a great deal!!....I have spent lots more on just a front door mat (large one for double doors)...They are perfect and beautiful on the patio!

Stephanie said...

I am going to have to go see if they still have those! My daughter needs that size and to pay full price would break the bank. I don't even know what channel they are on, but I am going to find out for sure now. What a screaming deal you got. Your backyard is just so beautiful even without the rugs.

Misti @ Living On Cypress Hill said...

Those all photos looks perfect. Area rugs add warmth and character to the rooms in which they are used. The colors go so great with your furniture.

Laura @ cookiecrumbsandsawdust.blogspot said...

Score! I love a great deal.

I'm also interested in your pool. We have an inground pool and I was considering investing in a robot this year. Do you use one?

Thanks,
Laura

I'm applying for the pool and patio position at your home. I'll sit and admire the rugs, hose them when needed and you supply me with lemonade.

WOW I love the design of the place and the pool woah! I want to swim. My dream house has a swimming pool. Love it, it makes you feel calm and when you feel boring, just only swim in that relaxing water.

If you want to change the design/décor of your home and office you must need some rugs. Beautiful and fashionable rugs will increase your impression to relatives/customers. Rugs made a warm and appealing space in any room, as long as style, comfort and mood with minimal effort. Popular choices of carpet and rugs in USA are those made from natural Oriental materials such as sea grass, sisal and jute. These materials are appealing since they are affordable, sturdy and easy to keep.
