One Kings Lane- My Newest Obsession

I'm usually the last one to hear about all the cool websites out there, so if you've already heard of One Kings Lane, well, sorry to bore you.  If you haven't, be prepared to love me.  They have new sales on home decor, furnishings, and accessories everyday for up to 70% of retail cost.  Their sales only last 72 hours and things sell out pretty quickly so you have to be on the ball.  They do show you what's coming up for sale, however, so you can plan your attack.  Love.  You have to become a member which is super simple and then you're just a few clicks away to buying bliss.  Seriously a person can go broke on this site saving money but it's oh so fun.  I purchased this yesterday.

It's Surya's Fallon Rug in blue.  I bought the 8' x 11' which they say retails for a little over $1000.  I got it for $499.  Not bad eh?  Before I bought it I scoured the internet to make sure this was a deal.  The cheapest I found it for was around $650 so I feel like I did pretty well.  I mean rugs, especially that size, are super expensive.   I found a picture of it on Decorpad.

I can't wait to get it.  I pray that it looks like it does online.  I just love the richness of the blue.  

It's been all about area rugs for me lately.  I also bought this which I'm going to put in my someday craft room.

 I know, it's super funky.  I first saw it on Color Splash a couple of years ago and I really liked it.  I forgot about it though until recently when I was looking at the Home Decorators website.  They were selling the 5' x 8' for $499.  I looked on Overstock and found the same rug and size for (wait for it) $199.  I was beyond excited.  I have to confess, however, that I've never purchased a rug sight unseen and am a little nervous, but optimistic.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  Anyone out there purchased a rug online?  Was it yay or nay?


  1. I love both rugs. And I love that you are doing so much blue...most people shy away from that color, but it's one of my favorites.

  2. those are both gorgeous. I have bought rugs sight unseen, twice now. My living room rug, which is awesome, and the boys room zebra rug (from Overstock), which is also awesome, but was a different color orange than it looked on the internets. Fyi, I love Overstock and their $2 rug shipping, BUT if you want to return it you have to pay regular shipping, which is expensive. Which is how I ended up keeping the zebra rug--it would have cost $55 to ship it back, and I only paid $150 for the rug so...I kept it. And it worked out just fine :-)
