Here is our current stair runner. It is the second version that we have had of a blond faux wool/sisal. I loved the contrast against the walnut stained treads. I'm over it.
If I was loaded and didn't have to commit for too long this would be a fun nutty choice. Lee Jofa's Ikat wool...MAYBE in my second home...my Uzbek cabin.
I think I would choose better colors than LJ did. Prussian blue and butter? Borat brown and hot pink?
CZ Guest had it all figured out, though. She had a whole gaggle of little naughty purebred peeing dogs so she had this put in her house almost everywhere.
I don't want to mention the unmentionable things that are still happening around here but let's be real. I'm shooting for this one.
A bent man would get it. My straight husband might need some convincing.
