Description of work:
I needed an area rug for the living room and one for the dining room that would match, different sizes.
I was frustrated looking in stores and online for an area rug for my living room that would be updated, would be attractive, not bland, not cost a fortune and pull the living room and dining rooms together. I have a striped couch, floral chair and ornate bench in the living room, so it was a challenge to find the right rug. I found Area Rugs Direct on Angie’s list and contacted Tony. We had a good conversation on the phone, he asked detailed questions and listened well. We set a time for him to come. He was on time, friendly, knowledgeable, and had very large size samples to put down on the floor. It was great to see the rugs directly in my rooms, next to the furniture! We ordered sculpted, wool rugs in a neutral color. They have some striations of gray in the weave, and are not bland, yet don’t fight the busyness of the furniture. I did spend a little more than I had initially hoped to, but I felt the price was fair, and everyone who has seen the rugs love them! When they came in, he brought them over with a helper, Kenny, personally moved the furniture, and took out the rugs we had in the rooms. He recommended a pad that allowed the wool to “breathe,” and explained why that was important. He even had some design suggestions regarding furniture placement and a couple of other things. I would absolutely recommend Tony and Area Rugs Direct! Tony is easy to work with, fun actually, and the experience was excellent from start to finish.
