A few months after I graduated college, I was thrilled to land a great job in the city and move into my first apartment. It was clean, convenient for my work commute, and affordable – but it didn’t have a ton of character. I hung some tapestries and photos on the white walls, but I wanted to add more color and put my stamp on the place, especially in the living room.
A friend of mine kept posting photos on Instagram of a rug she purchased online from Wovenly.com. I had to admit, her beautiful cream-colored shag rug made her apartment look much cozier than mine.
I assumed she paid a fortune for it because it looked expensive. Curious, I went to www.wovenly.com to see for myself. What a surprise! The prices were affordable, even for the bigger rugs. And the site was super-easy to use. They had plenty of photos of the rugs, and you can shop by size, price, color, style, and room.
At first, I was leaning toward a shag rug like my friend’s, but then I noticed a whole section of gorgeous boho-style rugs, which totally fits my style. After scrolling through different patterns and colors, I fell in love with Zara, a rug with a distressed, vintage-y look in a muted blue, maroon, and cream pattern. It would go perfectly with my new soft grey-colored sofa and gold metal accent table. The rug was also described as being easy to clean and pet-friendly, and I’d been thinking about getting a puppy. I wasn’t sure what size to order, but Wovenly made it easy to figure it out with their rug size guide.
The deciding factor was the 60-day trial. Knowing that if I didn’t like the rug, I could return it for free — and had two months to make up my mind — made me feel more comfortable with the purchase. To make the deal even sweeter, Wovenly offers free shipping. The total cost for my Zara rug was less than $125.
I’ve been disappointed in the past by other products that didn’t live up to the hype. But when my Wovenly rug was delivered promptly to my door, I couldn’t have been happier. It looked just like the photo on the website and totally transformed my living room into a gorgeous, cozy oasis. And it added some much-needed character and flair. I love it so much that I want a new rug for my bedroom, too! I feel like an interior designer now; I want to turn every room into a wow moment.
Finally, my apartment feels more like home. When I wake up in the morning, I unroll my yoga mat on the rug and do my meditation and sun salutations. The extra padded comfort underneath is amazing. I even got my puppy, Chloe. As promised, the rug material resists stains, and I can vacuum up pet hair easily. When I posted photos of my new place on Instagram, my friend with the shag rug sent me a DM saying, “So cute — when’s the housewarming party? ” Maybe after I finish hooking up my bedroom.
