Some people are against using area rugs on top of wall-to-wall carpet, but if you’re a renter like me and have no choice about your flooring, you can likely appreciate the power of an area rug to transform an otherwise boring space. Not to mention that it is covering up carpet that may not have been changed through several tenants. These maize rugs from World Market are both stylish and affordable, currently on sale for just $20.
I have never felt a rug made of maize, but from the looks of it, the texture is probably similar to jute. In other words, it probably won’t be the most comfortable surface. However, it looks like it would be great in a high-traffic area, or maybe under a round dinner table where you may not want to put an expensive rug anyway — especially if you have spill-prone kids. At this price point for a 5-foot round rug, it wouldn’t be expensive to find out.
There are four colors to choose from (red, green, brown and blue).
Why It’s Green:
- Made of woven maize
Price: $19.99 (on sale from $29.99)
