Which rug? {Opinions welcome!}

Hello, hello, friends! This may be the first time I have asked something of you; I need your advice! On a whim my husband and I decided to sell our living room area rug in favor of something a bit edgier. The soft pastel, floral, Persian wool rug we've had since we moved in was a great find early on when we needed something to cover the wood floor for our crawling babies. Style was not as great a concern as price and size. 

It was actually quite a beautiful rug and served us well for the past 3 years. But as our style has really developed in that time toward a more rustic, edgy, urban look, the rug started looking out of place. It sold fast and this is our space now:

We have an idea of what we'd like to replace our old rug, but I'd love to hear your opinions!

The Lappljung Ruta rug, (below), from Ikea is our first choice at the moment. 

LAPPLJUNG RUTA Rug, low pile IKEA Easy to vacuum thanks to its flat surface.

Others we've been considering:

After our current Persian rug sells...Olin Black 8'x10' Rug  | Crate and Barrel
STOCKHOLM Rug, flatwoven IKEA The durable, soil-resistant wool surface makes this rug perfect in your living room or under your dining table.


*And yes, I do realize that this is a very small, insignificant decision in the great big picture of life. But sometimes, making small, fun decisions like this help to ease the load of the tougher ones.*

Thanks for stopping by!
