I got an area rug for my new place. The kind with the uber thickness that cushions the feet. You step on this thing and you sink into the floor like it's memory foam and say "mmmm, oh yeah" and then you lay down face first and just smile... and take a nap.
It's also pretty. Not Persian pretty, not Native American hand-woven pretty, just cut thread with a pattern in looped thread to make gentle swirls, scrolls and curves throughout. Think color on color fabric....
It sheds like a long-haired Himalayan cat.
