Area rug for Annie

My needy friend Annie has another request.
This time it is for an area rug, 4x6', under $150, and not ugly.
I don't know why she always feels the need to stipulate the not ugly part.

the only answer to the question of what rug Annie should get is ZEBRA!!!!

Real cow that looks like zebra?
$120 Cow Hide rug (current auction price)
I recently stayed at a place that had a cow hide rug and it was surprisingly nice to walk on.
CRAFT IDEA- use white out pens and sharpies to add more stripes and make this a real zebra.

Fake but in the shape of a zebra?

$117 Alexa zebra rug
It's wool! that means no sad creepy eye holes.

Zebra stripes but rectangular?
Alliyah Handmade Safari Zebra Black New Zealand Blend Wool Rug (4' x 6')
$127.49 Alliyah zebra print rug
Love it!

I won't even get into the non-black and white zebras that Annie could get, but that rectangular one also comes in a nice tan and white that is a little more subtle.

"Ok Rebecca, enough zebras. What if I like black and white and patterns, but I am sick of your zebra obsession"  WHAT? Fine.

$46.49 Alexa chevron rug
Whoaaa the way this looks on my monitor it is making me dizzy. Dizzy zig zags, what everyone should have in their house.
This is made from a synthetic and wool blend which means that it won't last as long as the pure wool more expensive ones, but hey, chevrons will be out in 5 years when you want to get rid of this one anyway.

$72.99 Hand Hooked Moroccan trellis rug
A coffee table in the middle of this would be nice.

Moroccan Dhurrie Black/ Ivory Wool Rug (4' x 6')
$98.99 Moroccan Dhurrie rug
Similar to the one above but with a different lozenge shape pattern

Moroccan Chocolate/ Ivory Dhurrie Wool Rug (4' x 6')
$100.99 Moroccan Dhurrie rug
Another cool pattern, this time in chocolate and ivory.

Handmade Metro Grey Geometric Wool Rug (4' x 6')
$112.99 Metro Geometric rug
Bubbles! sort of. This asymmetrical pattern is driving my brain crazy looking at it.
Do you have that? I want the left and right to be mirror images!
You could get this rug and have me over and not be worried about making conversation since I would be figuring out how to fix the rug pattern the whole time.

OK lets move into some other colors... like GRAY and BEIGE! Don't let the party stop.

$40.99 Woven BB floor mat
This is waterproof and made from recycled plastic, so you can hose it off if you want, or put it outside

Handmade South Hampton Southwest Grey Rug (4' x 6')
$93.99 Southhampton gray rug
This one is polyester, not sure how that does as a rug material

Hand-knotted Mirage Grey Wool and Viscose Rug (4' x 6')
$153.09 Mirage wool rug
I like this pattern a lot and it looks fluffy to walk on

Hand-woven Ultimate Cream/ Beige Shag Rug (4' x 6')
$94.99 Cream and beige shag rug
This design is a little less geometric than the others and more damask.
It's made of polypropylene. What is that?

Hand-woven Ultimate Cream/ Smoke Shag Rug (4' x 6')
$82.99 Cream brown and beige shag rug
This kind of looks like an Orla Kiely pattern. Also kind of like vaginas.

Handmade Flame Inspiration Hushed Violet Wool Rug (4' x 6')
$100.99 Flame inspiration rug
The last time I had a "flame inspiration," I almost burned our coffee table down.
It's enough of a print to be interesting but it is not totally predictable or too out there.

$75.99 woven sisal rug
Just testing the waters here with a red pattern, I think it is nice.

Now let's pretend for a minute that Annie is the type of woman who could appreciate the delicate beauty of a well-crafted floral pattern or the fun of adding color to one's home (protip: she's not that kinda girl).
She might go for one of these:

Handmade Luna New Zealand Wool Rug (4' x 6')
$148.99 Handmade Luna rug
Wool from New Zealand! Still all gray for those who recoil from color. COUGH.

Hand-tufted Blue Cesky Wool Rug (4' x 6')
$143.99 Blue Cesky wool rug
Ok, just adding a little blueish gray and just a few more floral items, don't get scared.

Hand-tufted Josie Ivory Wool Rug (4' x 6')
$131.99 Josie floral rug
Watch yourself with those colors! I think this is pretty but Annie might hate it.
Depends on the color of your couch (please don't say it is floral) and the vibe of the room.

Eastern Colors Brown Hand-tufted Wool Rug (4' x 6')
$94.99 Eastern colors wool rug
I also like this one, it is floral but graphic and simple.

Hand-tufted Desertland Multi-color Wool Rug (4' x 6')
$146.69 Desert land multicolor wool rug
This abstract swish one is kind of neat

$139.99 Handmade ikat rug
Ok this one is just for me, but I like the alternating bands of design and the colors.
