Raise your hand if you've drooled over these rugs???
I know I have, they are absolutely beautiful!
They take old worn out carpets, neutralize the color and dye them with an over-saturated color. The carpets they use were unusable vintage rugs – unusable because the color had worn out in spots, not because the carpets themselves were worn. The newly dyed versions can be used on a wall or a floor.
ABC carpet and home Color Reform rugs start price of $799 (their website is down right now but that price was taken from here.)
While I really appreciate the skill that goes into "recycling" these rugs, I found an AWESOME substitute for those of us who can't spend a years salary on one rug. Yay!!
Home Decorators Euphoria Area Rug in blue, also comes in red and gray!
9'10"x12'10" $599 (with free shipping right now!)
By the way my little slice of blogtopia celebrated it's one year birthday last week! Can't believe I've been blogging for a year now!!
Update: Reichel at Copy Cat Chic featured this post today along with an updated ABC rug in a similar size/color. Thanks Reichel!
