Review - Mohawk Home Select Versailles Area Rug in Istanbul Beautified My Dining Room


Mohawk HomeI 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 reviewed the 8' x 11' Multicolor Select Versailles Area Rug in Istanbul from Mohawk Home, which retails for $384.71.

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.  :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. From gorgeous Karastan area rugs to practical rugs and bath mats, there's no doubt that Mohawk Home will instantly beautify your home and make a great first impression!

    Hmmm, thanks for letting me know about that. I tried it just now on a few different computers and the buttons seem to be there and working. Is there any way you could try refreshing your browser’s cache by hitting F5 a few times? It might be possible that you’re seeing an older background of my site. Thanks Doris! :)

    Can I suggest olive green table linens or a lighter window treatment to contrast with your beautiful wall color? I love the Mediterranean feel of your dining room, I am jealous! I saw your dining room and immediately thought of the new line from Ballard Designs. The Distressed Basil finish is awesome!
    Thanks for the entry!

      Melissa Says:


      That’s a great suggestion Jenny! I love the color of the Ballard Designs furniture too. I’m so glad that you think the table linens need a change now when coupled with that area rug. I thought the same thing and am just trying to convince my husband. :) I definitely think the olive would be a great choice and am going to keep my eyes out for a new tablecloth and runner. Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend!
