I love that my home actually has a formal dining room, for it's the perfect space to use when friends and family visit for the holidays. It also makes a great entryway since it's one of the first rooms you see when coming into our home. The furniture that's in our formal dining room is very special to me, for it originally belonged to my great-grandmother and was purchased in Germany around the 1900s. It's been handed down through the generations and is now on display in my home.
Unfortunately, the color of the antique furniture matches our hardwood floors almost exactly causing the room to look like one huge clump of brown. I always wanted a large area rug in that room that would help separate the brown of the furniture from the brown of the floor. In my mind, the area rug needed to have a classic antique look, but until recently, I had never found a high-quality floor covering that I truly liked.
Mohawk Home is the largest nationwide supplier of both rugs and mats, and for good reason. They offer beautiful designs and top-notch quality at an affordable price. I recently had the chance to upgrade my dining room in a BIG WAY with one of their Multicolor Select Versailles Area Rugs. Keep reading to learn more!
I loved the Mohawk Home Multicolor Select Versailles Area Rug in Istanbul immediately, for it had that classically antique, yet supremely stylish look which would really make the formal dining room pop. It also contained plenty of browns, taupes, golds and rusts which complemented the colors already present in this room as well as introduced a few new colors to it, such as dark blue and tan.
This woven 8' x 11' rug is constructed of 100% olefin and is designed with a superior weave for extra durability. It is stain, soil and fade resistant, which are essential characteristics for a dining room rug that will undergo plenty of wear and tear over the years.
The Istanbul Area Rug from Mohawk Home just oozes class, sophistication, quality and style, though the price tag is much less than you might expect to pay for a rug of this size and design. Mohawk Home supports our own country's work force too, for all of their area rugs are made right here in the USA. At Mohawk, sustainability is a strategic business imperative that is ingrained throughout their operations. They are committed to building a more sustainable world by aligning their processes, products and people to produce safe and environmentally friendly flooring products.
I just can't get over the Istanbul pattern itself and how well it compliments my dining room's decor and finally separates the sea of brown that used to reside there. The deep reds and golds definitely accentuate our home's copper walls and gold curtains while the light tan background of this area rug pops against the brown hardwood floors and furniture. The intricate border around this rug as well as the complex floral design in various shades of brown and gold make it seem like the Mohawk Home Istanbul Area Rug was custom made for my dining room!
If you'd like to give your home's living spaces a quick and easy facelift while adding plenty of luxury and style, then I highly recommend selecting any one of the thousands of wonderful area rugs from Mohawk Home.
