While in this crazy, paranoid state of mind, I stuck the rug in my cart and rushed to submit the order and seal my big retail win. The afterglow faded pretty quickly when I realized that I actually paid MORE for the OKL rug than the identical one I linked to in my post! Incredibly stupid oversight on my part. Luckily, the difference was only about $30...but as a die-hard online bargain shopper, I'm super annoyed with myself. The lesson learned is that buying in a hurried frenzy hardly ever pays off...no matter how good the deal seems.
The bright side of the story is that the rug works well in the room. I still want to tweak the furniture, but for now, the color/pattern of the rug improves the look of what's already there. What do you think?
