As I mentioned on Monday I ordered two sisal rugs from Overstock.com for the kitchen. I wanted something that was easier to clean, a darker color and larger than the original rug. Let’s take a look at the original rug again (I bought this from Target a year or so ago).
I’ve never ordered rugs online before so I was scared to do so without seeing something in person, however O’s return policy seems pretty straightforward so I figured I’d take a chance. I ordered the Stripes Fine Sisal Multi Rug and the Uni Natural Fiber Fine Sisal Rug (both 3x5 and around $35).
I wanted sisal since it was described as easy to clean and I liked the subtle pattern on both. The rugs arrived on Monday afternoon and immediately I knew which one was the winner without even opening both of them. I did worry briefly that Sami might think the sisal rug was a large scratching pad but so far she has no interest in it at all – she won’t even walk on the rug.
Here is my gorgeous new sisal in place:
