Frugal Find of the Week! Trellis Rug

Picture 2.preview

I spotted this fabulous trellis rug about a year ago while surfing the web in an effort to style a living room for one of my clients. Instantly, I fell head over heals in LOVE with it and I just knew had to have it!


Undoubtedly, a rug like this is hard to come by…..especially for a suitable price! I don’t like to spend a fortune on rugs….I have 2 sweet puppies that can be destructive, AND I often grow tired of  pieces very easily!  Where could I find something similar without spending thousands of dollars?

Well….never in a million years did I think I would come across something like THIS……

…………especially not at Garden Ridge! And for $99.00 for an 8’x10!?! I was amazed!

Now let’s be honest, it’s not the softest floor covering in the world….but it might just be exactly what you need to make a statement in your home in an area where you’re not looking to spend a ton of cash!

I went ahead and purchased an 8’x10′  for our master as I wanted to bring some color and pattern to the floor. I think it does the trick (for now anyways)! Luca seems to be enjoying it as well!

    I wish there was a Garden Ridge near DC.

    I love the rug. I’ve been eyeing up this one at Overstock for a while, which is kind of similiar. It just doesn’t quite go with my current color scheme. Love your blog!

    • Kimberly,
      That is a great rug! Maybe you will find use for it one day! :-)

    You’re awesome!!! I’ve been looking for an affordable rug for my high traffic family room and because I have a toddler, I didn’t want to invest in an expensive rug quite yet. I went out and bought this today!! It goes well with the pillows you featured on your frugal find a few weeks ago! Thanks so much!!!!

    • Eunice! That is so exciting! I didn’t even think about pairing it with the pillows…great idea! I would love to see pics!

  • That rug is awesome…and for $100, it could be felt for all I care! Did they have any other colors?

    November 19, 2010
    • They only have the slate blue color….they do have other sizes though!

      November 19, 2010
      • Haha! We try… :-)

    Great find! You are so great at finding good deals! And we shop at all the same discount home stores! Maybe we’ll run into one another one day! :)

    • Thanks Nicole! I love stylish finds for next to nothing! :-)

  • I love that rug and I ADORE the price! Wish we had a Garden Ridge!

    Seriously!!! Between the pillows you posted before and now this rug I am sooo mad there are no Garden Rudge stores in MA!!!! There is nothing even close to a store near here and I’m right outside of Boston so you would think there would be!!! Anyone feel like picking some of these up for me and mailing them to me????

    • Allison,

      I am SO shocked at the number of readers that tell me there is not a Garden Ridge anywhere near them! I really surprised!

  • After seeing the rug on your blog, I went out and bought it last night and absolutely love it! Thanks for sharing your find. It looks great in my office (and if your home too)! I also got the pillows you blogged about. Don’t know where I am going to put them yet, but I liked them too much to pass them up at that price.

    NO WAY! You got it! I’m so jealous. But I’m happy this great find works for you, too! I would have bought this as a cheap entryway rug if I could have somehow flown with it. I think it’s also a great option for those with kids who don’t want to be heartbroken if grapejuice, etc. spills on the floor. If only I had more time at Garden Ridge and a personal jet : )

  • Wow!! I love it! Cant believe its an 8×10 for that price.. Might just have to go out and buy it for my soon to be made over office. Love your blog!!

    I am DYING to have a rug like this, but everything I’ve found is over $600! Does Garden Ridge ship? I live in Florida!

    • Erin,
      I don’t believe they ship…
      But there is a slightly similar rug on Overstock…you might want to check that out!

    How “blue” is the rug? It looks gray to me.

    Also – does the rug have a stock number or style name? Do you have any idea if this rug still exists at Garden Ridge? I have no idea how long Garden Ridge keeps things in stock for…

      I have the 8×10 right now, but I can’t decide if it works in my house or not. You never know…I may decide to sell it! I will say I love the rug!
