Patina Vie Rug Love

I want to share a favorite rug in my house.  I added this soft beauty over the sisal last fall.  My family was constantly complaining about how sisal was uncomfortable etc.  I knew it had to be a hearty rug that could withstand the rough lifestyle we live.  Three dogs, cleats, golf shoes and dirty riding boots are the norm for us.  My family has been so pleased with the comfort of this in our Den. This is where I sit and blog every night. I can also attest to the clean-ability, as my old Jack Russell Terrier (R.I.P. Junior) had terrible potty problems before his trip over the rainbow bridge.  He had accidents on this more than once and it cleaned like a dream. My other dogs actually come in here and lay on the floor rather than the sofa which is a true miracle!

Designed in collaboration with the antique inspired artisans of Patina Vie, the tres chic French Affair Area Rug in Brushed Gold features linear dotted lines, intersecting in stunning symmetry. The pale alabaster gray base beautifully balances modern notes of lavish gold. Wonderfully woven with accents of subtly shimmering viscose, the distinctive designs of Karastans Cosmopolitan Collection were influenced by the glamour of metallic brushed gold prevalent in high end jewelry, home accents, furniture and lighting. Fused with the luxurious finish of Karastans exclusive Triexta Smartstrand Silk yarn, the styles of the Cosmopolitan Collection feature the sumptuous softness of silk coupled with a built in premium lifetime stain and soil resistance that will never wear or wash off. 

The antique inspired artisans of Patina Vie collaborated with Karastan to create couture worthy designs for three collections: the luxurious New Zealand Wool™ Titanium Collection, the contemporary viscose spiked Smartstrand Silk™ Cosmopolitan Collection and the transitional Smartstrand Silk™ Touchstone Collection. You may recognize Patina Vie from their renowned collections of glassware, marble, ceramic and bedding seen at Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Horchow, Bloomingdales and other specialty boutiques around the world
