I mentioned here that I went to IKEA for the first time. I was mesmerized by the whole experience. I dreamed in IKEA-store-format for over a week after my visit there. I really wanted to go back.
I was excited about this rug, the $35 price tag and it's future function in our family room.
Fast forward to yesterday when I rolled out the red little round area rug for the first time. (Mom left the guest quarters and we now have a playroom again, with a rug to play on now mind you.)
Be warned... DO NOT BUY WOOL RUGS FROM IKEA! Your whole house will be covered in the dander of it. Imagine red fibers all over the place, worse than the fluffiest cat shedding! It's horrible. I would take it back and get my $35, but my cats have taken a liking to the back side of it (while it was stored rolled up under Mom's pull-out bed) and the underside looks, well, cat scratched.
So I wonder... how is this rug held together? Did they glue it? Was it fastened in any way? My Dyson about choked on this rug! I am serious! I think about half the fibers fed my Dyson...
Anyway, this whole rug thing is bugging me to no end. What can I trust at IKEA? Is there quality in anything there? Will I be just as disappointed if I spend more than $10 on something? Maybe I should just steer clear of their textile types of products. Because we all know plastic accessory stuff under 10 bucks is okay to fall apart later... we wouldn't have lost much.
