Stripes or No Stripes, you be the Judge.

Originally my trip to Ikea was for the Stockholm rug. I love it, I love it, I love it. I just do. With that said. My plans for it were for my den. However...my den is a nest for kids, babies, play, necking (me and hubby of course), lounging, snacking, running...you get the point....I mentioned a while back that we were in the market for a new sofa for the den as well and I have not found her yet. My sister talked me out of the buy because I would be buying backwards basically. I really don't want to go with black in my den....so I put it back. But I was thinking....

I had some fabric left and wanted to see what black and white would look like on the floor of my office. I never did find a rug that made me happy so maybe....A few months ago I scratched the stripes off my list because I didn't think it would look right with the other things I had going on. So here is a "pretend" rug. How do you think the black and white stripes measure? Be honest...If so...I think the Stockholm has found a HOME.

(***FYI THIS IS NOT A REAL RUG)

I love the stripes because it adds a WOW factor; also along those lines is a zebra printed rug which I've been searching for.

I love the Stockholm Rug and desperately want it for our master bedroom. It didn't makes it's way into our overstuffed carts on our past trip to Ikea, but I am making a special trip in November to get my rug! I say go for it, the strips add some extra pizazz!

I like it, i think a zebra rug would look great. I have the same color theme going on in my living area--and I have my eye on a zebra accent chair :)

Im not usually a big fan of stripes but I think it works in here. The only problem with your rug is that its too small so the scale is throwing me off. A larger rug would anchor your desk nicely.

I like the stripes. I think that your rug should be a bit larger.

It looks good but I think that a zebra "pelt" would be even more fabulous and really add that POP to the room.
