Area rugs have the potential to transform virtually any space into a handsome, cozy and sophisticated pad. Whether it's your office, your living room or your storefront. My problems with most traditional rugs (gorgeous as they are) is that they're almost always made from wool which is not sustainable and incredibly cruel, and difficult to clean, especially when cats and dogs live with you (you know what I'm talkin' about). There's a sale at Fab.com (members only, so click here for your invite) on area rugs ranging from 3x5 to 6x9 made under fair trade principles, sustainably from recycled polypropylene which can be hosed-off. They are reversible with inverted color schemes, and they only cost $17 - $108!
