rug hunt

This bedroom is really inspiring my bedroom direction...




I already have the art, bed linens, chair and gold side table figured out. The rug is giving me fits! I am sure this is a very high end French rug design. It looks like a pale gray agate slice. I really want that pale gray and ivory color. This is all I can find:

West Elm - right colors but don't like zebra print

Flor - like the print but think it is too dark

Suzy Hoodless - thousands of dollars - nuff said

Martha Stewart - Definitely too dark
I want to use the Jonathan Adler brass side table and a gray leather chair:


So which do you like best? I can always do a solid gray silk/wool or a patched ivory cowhide if none of these are inspiring....

Ok first of all that brass table is giving me a heart attack. Secondly, the $$$$ rug is just about killing me. Thirdly, I have no links for you at the moment but I will do a serious search for you because I need to see this room come to life for my own selfish reasons. ;o)

Elyse, I saw that first one in my rug hunt and I do like it. I love the size of the print in the second one - but they are calling it light blue. I wish I could see them in person before having to purchase! They are great!

What's your budget? Some custom rugs aren't too bad. Love the agate idea.

I've done this collection before and even though it's different, its reminding me of the look a little

Those are great, Naomi! Not really sure on a budget but maybe will just get the chair and table first and then think about rugs later. Have been looking at them for two days and my eyes hurt...hahaha

Since Hoodless is out of the question, My pick would be the Flor one, but I'm trusting that Erika will find some other fabulousness to include in the running!

Hey Elizabeth, I was on Horchow today looking at rugs and came across the one below. Thought of you ;)
