I need a rug. This is so boring.
Where does one buy rugs from that aren’t incredibly expensive (and thus beyond our means) but good quality or overpriced but under-quality? Partly to finish off the living room, partly for baby no. 3 to roll about on, so sadly synthetic is probably wiser for ease of washing…Posted 1 year ago

Not from Dunelm, we have a lovely dark red shaggy rug that sheds strands of itself continually, like you hoover the house and then turn round to find a strand of red on the laminate floor two rooms from where the bloody thing is., aaarrrrgh does my head in.Posted 1 year ago
Thanks all! We had some dressing gowns from Dunelm that shed like a golden retriever in spring. Bloody awful!Posted 1 year ago
Where are you based OP? There is a shop in Macclesfield that has the largest selection of rugs I’ve ever seen. Can’t believe I’m admitting this on a public forum, but I love looking through them. No idea why, I just find it quite calming. Lovely smell and very quiet due to the absolutely ridiculous quantity of massive rugs hanging from giant display rails.Posted 1 year ago
Brighton, so a little far! My brother lives in Alderley Edge though and my parents grew up in that neck of the woods.Posted 1 year ago
I’m an imposter! Mrs F is from Alderley Edge, family been there for years. I’m from Yorkshire where there are no rug wonderlands to my knowledge 😀Posted 1 year ago
We picked up a rather lovely kilim rug from IKEA a few weekends ago. The missus lives her rugs, and it holds up well to the more expensive ones. Pride and joy is a massive Kyrgyz shyrdak though. God knows if you can get them over here.Posted 1 year ago

Obviously you have to holiday there, have a lovely Beni Ourain Berber rug that cost £220 (inc baggage charge) would have been £700+ over here
Got a great rug from Wayfair after a lot of searching-I got a 15% discount by signing up to their newsletter too .100% wool,Berber style and hand made in Greece.It is labelled as grey but has a variety of natural colours from black through grey to light brown.It is the thickest, softest floor covering I have ever walked on.It was this one
It’s that good I was even moved to write a review!
This similar one also gets great reviews
EDIT-Whoops just noticed your synthetic comment.This rug is heavy so washing options limited but wool washes easily with a damp cloth and/or anti bacterial spray etc.The nature of this rug means marks/stains don’t really show up.Have a look at it in close up and you’ll see what I meanPosted 1 year ago
It will really tie the room together.Posted 1 year ago
oooh i know this one.
Weavergreen. Made of recycled bottles, mostly fished from rivers
got my wife a throw for xmas – they’re very good. Feels just like wool
I like those Weavergreen rugs, some really nice designs there.Posted 1 year ago
