I find myself in quite the conundrum. I would really like to own this chair. It is, however, $1898.00 + tax + shipping. Then comes conundrum #2: I would like to own a pair of them. For some reason I have developed rag rug fever (not to be confused with Bieber fever and Flea Market Fever although I have combed the latter in an attempt to satisfy the current). Sometimes I swear Anthropologie is reading my mind. I think things up and the next thing you know they magically appear in their shop. It's kind of uncanny.
About 6 months ago I saw this rug (and subsequently sought out 50 more like it):
It's a Boucherouite rug straight out of Morocco
--(not to be mistaken for Mariah Carey's kid).
Immediately I thought of my grandma who used to be able to make a rag rug like no other. The rug lived in my mind. Okay it lives in my mind. I thought about hanging it on the wall, putting it on the floor in my living room, swaddling up in it at bedtime...covering a chair. And then there was Anthropologie - having swooped into me ol' noggin they went on to produce the very item I've been dreaming of.
I have now convinced myself that if the closets can ever get purged and organized I think I am going to try and make a version of this rug. Check back in 5 years to see if I've actually succeeded. On a serious note though - I think I could do it if I could find enough of the right fabric colors.
Oh! And one of my fave reads Eat, Sleep, Denim featured me today in their
closely with her on all things denim. Would love for you to stop by and check out their looks!
