Rug Shopping

I’ve wanted some new rugs upstairs.  I need some for the south spare bedroom.  I hate driving to town (one big enough to find rugs for sale) so I flipped over to Amazon.  They had some that I thought would be great.  The problem…I was so nervous about buying something I couldn’t feel or actually see.

There are rugs and rugs and rugs on Amazon.  How can I tell the quality??  I read reviews.  I looked and looked.  Then I stumbled upon this rug.

Safavieh Heritage Collection HG625A Handmade Red Wool Area Runner, 2 feet 3 inches by 20 feet (2'3" x 20')
Well this wasn’t the bedroom rug I was looking for but it would be great as a rug for my long upstairs hallway….It sure looked nice…but would it be the quality I wanted.  I was so excited as I didn’t know they made runners 20 feet long. I ended up ordering it but decided that I wouldn’t order the bedroom rugs I found instead waiting to see about the quality of this rug.

I was so leery.  It came all wrapped up and the delivery guy left if outside.  It was so heavy.  It was all I could do to get it carried into the house.  But the moment of truth would come when I opened it.I don’t often buy nice new things so this was a real treat and I so hoped I wouldn’t be disappointed.

It was delivered during childcare so I waited for Hubby to come home and the kids to go then I had him carry the rug upstairs.  The packing was really good so it took a little work to get it out and unrolled.  I told Hubby my apprehension as I unrolled it.  He quickly said- I love the color and I think your worries about quality are over.


I love it.  The color is great.  I am so happy.  The rug brand is Safavieh and it’s part of the Heritage Collection.  They have so-so many awesome rugs that are all different colors, styles, patterns and sizes.

If you are looking for rugs that have an antique feel to them, I highly recommend these.  They are so plush.  The first night we had it down I woke in the night half asleep and half awake making my way down the new runner to the bathroom.  I woke enough to smile and be happy about the rug all over again.  It is so cushy.

I am so-so happy with the purchase.  The quality was great…the colors were accurate.  The price was good.  All around I am happy.  Once the credit card bill comes and this one is paid for I’m ordering two rugs from the same company for the spare bedroom.  At least this next time around I won’t be nervous about the quality…because I know it’s really good.

  5. looks great! I would offer up one more place to search for rugs… I have purchased many a rug from their….large (room size) and entry way rugs. they have all been of fabulous quality. Overstock also offers coupons…10 or 15% off, not great, but their prices are extremely fair.
