I thought this was the perfect rug for my dining room
(save for the $6000 price tag).
I recently decided this one would work well, especially in keeping with my new found Kathryn M Ireland obsession.
(if only it was wool and not cotton.)
I had the sample floating around the dining room for a while, feeling like it had just the palette I was after. My price for a 9x12 was going to be under $400...not bad at all. But I didn't pull the trigger.
Yesterday, I was alerted by the blog Kiki's list that One Kings Lane was featuring Stark rugs. I headed on over to take a look for a client. (No really, I swear.)
I spotted a striped wool flat weave with the green of my curtains and the blue of my chairs and the brown from around the house and the red (or orange) I was hoping to add. Just, alas, no yellow. It was available in several sizes, and the posted price range went up to around $1550. I clicked through, even though that was way more than I was planning to spend.
But no. The 9x12price popped up: $149. Where's the other zero? I thought. I put it in my cart, convinced the error would be corrected. Nope.
And so, in a month (why a MONTH?) I will have a 9x12 Stark flatweave wool dhurrie for the bargain price of approximately 95% off retail.
With colors that, now that the thrill has worn off, I have to admit will probably not...quite...work. But who knows? Also...returns accepted within 14 days.
Do you make impulse purchases when the numbers are "too good to pass up?"
