Here's the favourite thing I've bought by far, unfortunately not at a bargain supermarket price. Rugs were needed downstairs as it's too echoey living in a house with a bare wooden floor. It's the poshest rag rug that I've ever come across and was designed by Sarah Campbell for Habitat's 50th anniversary. There's even a video about it! It retailed for £450 originally but mine was an Ebay purchase that was just a shade below £280, twenty pounds under what I'd budgeted. I was really excited when it arrived yesterday. It's something that I plan to treasure for years.
Here's a shot of it in situ under my retro Ercol dining suite. They look like they were made to go together. Sadly, it might not stay there for very long. I'm rather nervous that something like a curry spillage might ruin my heirloom piece so its going to be moved into the living room when a floor covering that's more robust takes my fancy. In the meantime I'll just have to go easy on the super staining turmeric!
