My Black and White Geometric Rug

Back in July I chose a new black and white geometric rug for my she-shed.

I spent a long time deciding on the colour, size and style.

I deliberated over patterns (I wanted something quite graphic).

Mulled over sizes (I needed something large enough to cover the main area of my work space to keep me cosy in the winter months).

Then after trawling the internet (for what felt like an age) finally found the perfect one from a fantastic online shop, aptly named My Rug Store.

My New Black and White Geometric Rug

The rug arrived quickly — all wrapped up in it’s plastic covering — then literally sat in the corner, patiently waiting for my shed to be finished, so it can be laid out in pride of place. Poor rug.

Until now.

Last weekend, with my dining room makeover almost complete, I suddenly decided that my new rug would be the perfect finishing touch.

So I’ve essentially ‘stolen’ it off myself!! Is it even possible to do that?

It’s SO gorgeous!!! I’m totally and utterly delighted with it.

My Rug Store had a fair few geometric designs to choose from but I had plumped for the Medina rug in black; a Kilim rug with a bold black and white diamond pattern.

On paper it could have been fairly dark, busy and a little overpowering but its surpassed all expectations and upon closer inspection it’s more a soft charcoal grey and absolutely stunning.

Not sure if it’s feasible to fall in love with a rug but I have pretty strong feelings towards this one, let me tell you!

It’s a flat rug, woven from 100% wool pile, and it feels much, much more expensive than it’s £199.99 price-tag.

It feels so soft — it’s almost like touching silk — and feels amazing underfoot.

Rug Of Dreams

It works so beautifully.

I couldn’t decide where I wanted it initially — and originally had it in middle of the room (as the Medina works well in high traffic areas) — but after careful consideration, I’ve popped it under the dining table.

It looks like it was made to be there and gives the dining area real focus; plus it’s great to have a floorcovering underneath to table, to protect the carpet from messy eaters!

To run the risk sounding like a stuck record, I’m so, so pleased with it. If you’re looking for well priced, fabulous quality rugs I highly, highly recommend My Rug Store.

The only negative to this story is that now I am left with no rug in my she-shed. But hey! There are definitely worse problems to have.
