When I recently got the opportunity to work with benuta I jumped at the chance, a good friend had just got a rug from there and it was gorgeous. We were just in the process of decorating our lounge, and had changed the colour scheme for all of our furniture, but had really struggled finding a rug to match the new grey scheme.
We had looked everywhere, and everything was either too patterned, too flat, to rough, not just the right colour. benuta presented me with the opposite problem, too much choice. Is there such a thing as too much choice? It is better to struggle choosing from lots of options you love, rather than having the scour shops and the Internet to find just the right thing.
But trust me it took me ages to choose, the benuta site has a great facility that allows you filter your choices, and after filtering the choice was still huge. After a lot of thought I decided on the Shaggy Rug Breeze, we went for the 160×230 cm at £200. This is a large rug so I thought that was fantastic value.
I wanted a rug that was cosy, somewhere people radiate towards. Our last rug was quite rough and industrial looking, it looked good, but just wasn’t cozy. I wanted snuggly, stylish and cozy, and this is exactly what I got.
Delivery was super speedy and arrived with 5 days of ordering, it was well wrapped and in perfect condition on delivery. Smelling fresh and dry. I know this may be an odd point, but the last rug we bought cost a small fortune and smelt damp when it arrived, this was not the case with benuta.
As soon as the rug was down Toby was rolling in it, and Joe abandoned the chairs in favour of the rug. It really is like lying on a snuggly blanket. Exactly what I wanted to achieve. Our lounge is a large room and the rug provides much-needed coziness on our wooden floors, yet looks light and bright, I just love it.
Check out the benuta website for inspiration, the choice is huge and from my experience the quality is fantastic, as is the service.
