"Perfect for our living room"

We've been looking for just the right accent rug for our rustic mountain home in Colorado. This rug is beautiful and we couldn't be happier with it. It's rich colors and happy feel are perfect. We love it!

Sian

I recently made my first Novica purchase, one of Alfredo's runners... it is so beautiful, it really exceeded my expectations and we're already looking at other designs to buy for the rest of the house. The workmanship, quality and richness of the rug is a delight.
