Get the look: THAT black & white rug!

For years, I have admired this beautifully simple, black and white rug in virtually every hot international decor magazine. The perfect, oh-so-graphic way to stick a rocket up any room. But where to find it for (almost) a song?

Ikea! Get the look:
And loathed as I am to endorse (or should I say, "condone") Ikea for reasons that involve heavy use of the word "landfill", this one actually looks "do-able" - The Ikea "Stockholm Rand" flatwoven rug. $249 (170 x 240cm), $449 (250 x 350cm). Admittedly, I have yet to see it in the flesh, but I'm guessing it's hard to eff up a rug too badly, right? Do any of you have the Ikea version? Spill!
And here it is on the cover of July 2010 Australian Real Living magazine:


  1. Awww that would go well in my craft room, just blogged baout it with a ton of photos:-) Great inspiration, thank you! And love your blog girly!!!

  2. 'stick a rocket up a room' - love it bella!
    Hanging out for one of these. My friend Emma rang our local ikea, apparently we have to wait a couple of more months for it, but the eastern states ikea's are getting it sooner.

  3. I have the larger size of this Ikea rug in my Bedroom.Amazing!!! Very hard to find though and has not been in stock for months otherwise I may well have bought another.

  4. You made me chuckle re: giddyup aunt on Spiro invite .. now you've done it again re: ffing up a rug (re: ikea rug). not sure how quality would be - but for such a cheap price, it could last 6 months and still be called a bargain!! go get it (oh, and freedom have a nice one too - go take a peek) (-:

  5. I know everyone in the design world hates IKEA... but as we don't have it here in little old New Zealand, I can't help but be a smidge jealous - especially with such finds as this rug.

    Fantastic blog.

  6. I have this rug and it's fantastic! When mixed with high end furniture it doesn't look like it's from Ikea at all!


  7. I have this rug and absolutely LOVE it!It really does look and feel high-quality, it's thin, but so are the higher end versions! I highly recommend it! Great post! Love your blog like always :)

  8. I would LOVE to buy this rug, but having bought 2 rugs from Ikea previously, I'm curious to find out from those who already have this rug how long they've had it, how it is wearing and is it in a high traffic area? My 2 previous Ikea rugs looked great .... for about 6-8 months, tops! I swore I'd never buy another rug from Ikea EVER again, but I too have admired this style of rug for ages and am soooooo tempted. Any info on how this rug has worn over time would be greatly appreciated.

  9. Looked at this rug, for I too was in love... BUT, what appears to be white, was cream.
    I have since gone back several times, but yes, they are out of stock. Hoping the next batch will be whiter!
