Elements of a Room || Rug Pads

Nothing is in good taste unless it suits the way you live.  What's practical is beautiful and suitability always overrules fashion.
Billy Baldwin


I purchased this little antique beauty from Kristy a few months ago.  The photo does not do it justice.  The peach tones are just dreamy.  Anyway, I placed it in the entry where person after person kept slipping.  Finally, my daughter's friend busted her can trying to leave.  I knew I needed to get my act together and buy a nice rug pad before someone was seriously hurt.


I know rug pads are not glamorous but they are necessary to not only protect our floors but also the well being of our favorite people. Luckily, I was approached by the good people at Rug Pad USA. They kindly sent me a high quality, eco-friendly rug pad made especially for Persian and Oriental rugs. It is perfect!  It is thick and comfy but, more importantly, the rug doesn't budge. 

I am always sourcing rugs for clients which are quite expensive and irreplaceable.  I want to do everything I can to preserve the life of that rug.  Heads up, designers - they offer a 20% discount to the trade which is always helpful.  I also love that their products are good to the earth and made in the US which provides employment for Americans. 

Rug pad USA has generously offered a 15% discount to all readers using the code PR15.  Now, go protect your flooring!


Have a beautiful day,
Lisa
