A few months ago, I stumbled across the company Coco Carpets. See, I was on Pinterest late one night (no surprise there) and this a-mazing boucherouite Moroccan rug stopped me in my tracks. Now, if you’ve been watching my Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been pining away for the perfect rug. It’s become a thing. At one point I had 3 rugs I didn’t like in the basement storage room and The Boy said if I brought a new rug home, an old one had to leave the nest. ERMERGERD! Who says this kind of things! What sort of monster are you?
MORE AFTER THE JUMP
Well, throwing caution to the wind, I immediately looked up their URL but there was only a coming soon message and a field to add my email to a notification list. Darn it! This rug was the bomb diggetty in my home. Waiting list it is.
Fast forward a few long months. Checking back to see if the site was up, stalking their Facebook page. Hello my name is Kyla and yes, I
may have a rug problem. Which is funny because up until a year ago I was totally against rugs in the house. Go figure. Anyhoo, I finally got the email! HOORAY! They were open for business.
Coco Carpet rugs are all vintage…about 20-30 years old and would have originally been made by a Berber woman and used in her home. Each rug is one of a kind and made from wool and small portions of cotton thread.
I love the bright colors on the cream backdrops. Pinks, reds, teal, blues and orange. All in these beautiful organic patterns. I would have pulled the trigger, but alas, the rug I was in search of had to be at least 9″ X 12″. I was so sad. But Little Maus is getting a room makeover soon, as is the guest bedroom. I might just have to make it happen. Doctor Evil (AKA Lilttle Pinky) keeps whispering buy me in my ear. Check them out if you’re in the market for a unique, one-of-a-kind rug that will make your home decor memorable. It’s worth the investment and will last for years to come.
