sheeps


don't get me wrong, i have them scattered all abouts the house for rowdy to lay on, and otherwise luxuriate on.

but the floor?

yesterday i purposely went and stepped on one at pottery barn that was on display beside a bed. ground my foot into it and everything, just to express my displeasure with how dirty it would get.

could this really be tolerable? in the kitchen!

do you have one on your floor?

I recently stumbled upon your blog and find it very entertaining, but this post gave me a really good chuckle. Thanks. I would have totally done the same thing. Oh, and NO WAY JOSE could that rug ever be in my kitchen.

I like the idea of hardwoods in the bedroom, with a sheepskin rug exactly where your feet hit first thing in the morning.

this winter im putting mine (either one big one or two littles) partially under the glass topped coffee table. yes, on the floor. in front of the fire. dont you see the sexiness?!

I have mine next to my bed! Its lovely to get out of bed onto that softness. I have hardwood floors and I take my shoes off at the door.

Kitchen? No way.

i was considering getting 2 for beside our bed (we have hardwood floors), but we already have a white cow rug in there, and i thought it would be too creepy with that many dead animals. in the kitchen, you would have to be ocd, single, with no kids or pets for it to work. i'm a spiller and we have numerous dogs, so it would be grrrooosss instantly.

p.s. - i found a rug for the kitchen while we were on vacation and it's fabulous and was only 150.

I have one slung over the back of my couch. I would consider the side-of-the-bed-with-hardwood-floors scenario, but a kitchen? Absolutely never ever ever. Gross!

yep i have one next to my bed too. i have an all white bed as well so i thoroughly wash my feet every night before bed to make sure to keep it all clean.

Wasn't this in the lake house of Thom Filicia? (is that his name?) I have a feeling that there are far more cocktails than actual food dishes produced in that kitchen, in which case, why not go fuzzy?

andi said...

Oh yes - by the bed is awesome! Kitchen floor? Maybe if it NEVER got used - gross.

Yep, Murray uses them as dog beds.

We have one in our dining room that was provided from my mom-in-law's personal flock. It lays in our dining room, and when we pull it up to shake it out (outside of course) the floor is always soft and polished from the lanolin still in the hide. Wouldn't put it in the kitchen, though. Beside the be would be lovely!

I don't know dude...maybe bedside. But that kitchen? That kitchen I'm loving. Especially if a beach is just a few steps out the door...

Lisa said...

Sure you can use them on the floor. When they start to get grayed out, just wash them in the sink with shampoo. And to get that fluffy quality back after a wash, use a dog brush meant for woolly dogs (we happen to have them lying around because we've got a bouvier).

They're actually among the easiest rugs to clean and care for.

my little apartment said...

yup, I'm gonna have 'em in my walk-in closet and probably somewhere in the bedroom or on the sun porch in the winter. the small ones look weird, but the bigger ones are GREAT.

Yana said...

I would have to agree, kitchen is a horrible idea. I DO have two in our bedroom on both sides of the bed. With no shoes upstairs, they stay white, fluffy and fresh. So soft in the morning....makes me want to go back to sleep just so I can wake up my toes in fluff.

Julianne Austin said...

I have one at the foot of my bed and I LOVE it - so soft and it does not get too dirty :)

meindertpeters said...

ok. so you have them for animals lying on them. but u think them gross in a kitchen?

I had one in my bedroom for a year and it resulted in spending an hour at the end of each week trying to revive it with a dog brush while weeping.
