My Retro Rugs are absolutely gorgeous aren't they - all my own work and development. Sturdy, soft to stand on, my own (unpatented) finish around the edge so they don't turn up.
Round ones are perfect for bathrooms - in front of the basin/mirror, keep those feet warm while makeup is applied, and the oval ones work well in the kitchen or laundry - any where you stand a lot.
Great also for beside the bed. They add a real softness to contemporary life. Great for newly weds and 21st presents - a bit of retro style when they don't have much to spend ...
... and the dogs like them as well (as you can see Amber has slightly more subtle taste than Caprica in the last post).
