Unable to afford high-end rugs, but unwilling to settle for the quality of a rug you'd find at a bigger-box retailer? Then try new rug company Morris Etc.
Founded by Amy and Brett Morris, a couple who operate their business out of their Fort Greene, Brooklyn, home, each rug is one of a kind yet still affordable. Featuring bold stripes in an eye-pleasing array of colors, these rugs, most of which are five feet square, are a budget-friendly addition at $375-$400 each. Considering that each rug requires weeks of meticulous hand looming, that price seems like a total steal.
You can shop the full selection of rugs currently available on Morris Etc's webiste. My current favorite is the Surrey Hills 07 ($375). No matter what colorway or striped look you choose, you can be guaranteed that these heirloom-quality handmade rugs will last for the long haul in your home. These vintage, one-of-a-kind creations are 100 percent wool and built to last. The company's also expanded into runners as well — keep an eye on Morris Etc's website for updates on its selection.
Where would you add bold stripes like these in your home?
