More from the floor
Ok, yeah, so I went to Ikea to get a rug. No, no it was fine. Really. That thing in the warehouse bit where I got likened to Jesus dragging his cross? Quickly forgotten once the rug was in the car. It was all fine. My only question now is, have I bought something a bit… mental?
It was the best combination of hugeness (3.5 x 2.5m), cheapness (£275) and sort of being in the right area style wise. But once it was on the floor, with all the furniture out of the way, it made everyone’s eyes go a bit funny. Like a Bridget Riley you have to hoover.
It’s possibly best seen through a door, or reflected in a mirror, to lessen its potency. But it is warmer. That little fan heater you can see under the table is being retired.
