Good dancers really know how to cut a rug, which is why Fred Astaire's carpet lived in fear most of its life. Facilitate friendly human-rug relations with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of natural fiber rugs online from Natural Area Rugs.
Natural Area Rugs weaves natural fibers such as sisal, seagrass, and bamboo into durable, earth-friendly floor coverings. A 6'x9' Sedona bamboo rug ($95) sets a trap for hungry pandas, so homeowners can check paw prints against a database of known masked bandits before quickly wiping foot tracks from the rug’s easy-to-clean surface. A 4'x6' Sunset sisal rug ($99) comes with a nonslip latex backing to prevent embarrassing trips, and even more cautious customers can add a washable rug pad ($10–$99) to further reduce the chance of slippage. Picky patrons can also craft custom rugs by using the online order form—which provides options for shape, weave, border, and favorite presidential nickname—but they must call to place these orders.
Unlike their factory-fashioned competitors, Natural Area's eco-friendly rugs emit low volatile organic compounds, which help reduce the occurrence of allergies, headaches, and the hallucinations about being lost in King Arthur’s court that are often caused by inhaling too much new-carpet smell. Natural Area Rugs also offers free shipping to the continental United States for customers who spend more than $49.
