I got it! If you follow me on Instagram (do!!@chrislovesjulia) you saw that I was debating picking up this, apparently, very popular rug from Ikea that was marked down to half off of $250 in the as-is section. $125 is a great price for a nearly 6’x8′ rug–especially a hand-woven wool one! Chris’s only concern via text was. “That’s really nice. But, where would we put it?” Valid. There weren’t any blank spaces in our home needing an area rug, but we both agreed the dining room rug needed refreshed–maybe it would work there? With Chris’s blessing and your lots of encouragement from you guys on Insta and Facebook, I went for it knowing I could always sell it if it didn’t work.
– The rug is hand-woven by skilled craftspeople and adds a personal touch to your room.
– The durable, soil-resistant wool surface makes this rug perfect in your living room or under your dining table.
– The rug has the same pattern on both sides, so you can turn it over for additional wear and a longer life.
So, huge sigh of relief there.
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Once upon a time, I fell in love with a coffee table. Money was a little tight, but we saved up the $1,085 to buy it because once I saw it — no other coffee table would do. It was my first furniture splurge, and I was so nervous and excited. When I arrived, it […]
