I need you rugs. Where art thou?

3:52:00 AM

This post is about rug inspirations slash plea to home decor stores here in the Philippines to please bring in gorgeous rugs.. Pretty please! Yes we have some rug options here, but most are very plain. I am yet to find beautiful graphic rugs. I know many Filipinos doesn't use them because of dust issues, but if we can sweep the floors every other day, then we can certainly vacuum a piece of rug once a week. 

These rooms are all pretty as it is, even without the rugs, but see how those pattern on the floors totally completes the space. They add pattern, color, and texture.

See? Lovely. Just lovely.

If anyone can tell me where I can buy something like these here, tell me now. Haha.. My last resort is to order online, have it sent to a family in LA (most of their online store doesn't ship to the Phil, if they do, huge shipping fees plus I-don't-even-wanna-think-about-it custom tax-- not an option), have my family send them to me via balikbayan box, and wait a month. OR someone rich import them and sell? If only I can.

  3. Hey Elle,
    I think you should design your own range of rugs. It seems like you've found a gap in the market!I'm sure you could get them manufactured in the Philippines at a good price!
