Check out my new carpet ride.

A perfect world consists of good music, something beautiful to look at every day, happiness. a place to call home, and a good designer to fill it with those beautiful things you’ll look at each day <wink>. Enter NIBA Rugs. The moment I reached my new favorite rug manufacturers website, I got lost in a virtual sensory exploration of some of the coolest rugs of all time. And as a designer, I come across a slew of fascinating, interesting, mind-boggling, and yes, sometimes, frightening area rugs. Not with NIBA. Founder, Beth Arrowood and her team of schooled designers, lead the way through their spin on the best yarns, the most up-to-date prints, and the widest rainbow of colors. Allow me to check off my favorites. I’d love to know yours!

Anyone who knows the “design” me knows my adoration for herringbone and chevron, Bring it!:

Visit this site again in July when the flat-weave collection is introduced. I like to use this type on those condo rentals with wall to wall carpeting. A great way to break up the expanse of rental beige. NIBA that one in the tush!
