area rug

Madeline Weinrib Atelier Platinum Buche Cotton Flat-Weave Area Rug.

Bit of a mouthful, no?

Comes in an assortment of sizes, of which I would need the largest (10' x 14').  I've been trying to find a replica or some kind of a similar version but Canada seems to be years behind in area rug trends compared to the U.S. of A.  I can deal without a rug in the living room for the summer, but every winter I find myself wishing I had something cozy to walk on and to make the room feel a little more casual.

Plus, Nate Berkus has one in his living room so it must be cool.

I've had no luck in locating an online dealer for Madeline Weinrib, although there are some decent looking similar styles out there.  This one's from West Elm:

Or this one from Ikea:

And this one from Crate and Barrel:

The only problem with all of these alternatives is that they only come in dark stripes, whereas I was hoping to lighten the room up with the addition of a rug, not darken it even more!  Hmm maybe a trip across the border is in order?
