Rug Love. Ikea Who Knew?

When I think of Ikea I think of a lot of things. Swedish Meatballs. Soft serve ice cream Vast expanses filled with basic shapes.
Bright colors & reasonable prices. And of course the random smattering of people's children running the halls.
What I do not think of when I hear the word Ikea, is glamor.
So imagine my surprise when City Sage opened my eyes to the elegant possibilities of an Ikea rug.

It must be fated because I, folks, am in dire need of a rug.
And my color scheme is black and white.
And I operate on a shoestring budget.
Like I said. Kismet.
My current rug, she's on her last leg. She's had a short but busy life making her way from a Homegoods store in Los Angeles up to my apartment in Santa Barbara. She's beautiful, but from the beginning she was a fragile soul. 
You see she sheds everywhere.It wasn't just a phase. And for that I hate
So farewell dear nuisance rug & hello to such wonderfully chic possibilities. . .
