If my recent roundup has you itching for some flocking, I'm here to ease your pain. The Company Store Elia Rug ($69-$382) has the look of rich damask flocking, without the heavy price tag. You can get yours in blue, chocolate, green, or natural, but I'd suggest steering clear of the cotton-candy blue, so you don't overdo it. I think the open, spacious feel of this rug gives it a contemporary look that offsets the Baroque roots of the design quite well. How would you build a room around this rug?
