Sorry to be a party pooper but like Gerry said everyone's got one, in which case I don't want one. I thought they were quite cool first time I spied one but I'm bored now...sorry.

I love my fake Moroccan rug, which is less than half the size of the room (which is cavernous). The light taupe is similar in tone to the wood-look flooring, but the texture draws the chairs and sofa, none of which sit on the rug breaking that rule, into a cozy conversation zone -- and the shag hearkens to the age of the house (1966).
