cheap + great: bold, geometric pattern ikea rug

Like the website Knock-Off in Style, we love the challenge of finding an affordable version of some great piece of design – not necessarily a “knock-off” but an object of similar lines and intention, that is cheap. We’ve loved this wool Ikea PS Stuga rug (9′ x 9′, $299) from the moment we saw it, but think it’s even more of a value since we saw this printed dhurrie by John Robshaw (6′ x 9′, $795) featured on Better Living Through Design:

We actually like the Ikea one better because of it’s irregular design and the fact that it’s off-white – not white – so won’t look dirty. But we just might throw it over a sofa instead of putting it on the floor…

It comes in blue, too:
