My rug came in for our Master Bedroom and I'm so pleased with it! It's woven seagrass with a rubberized backing and a slate binding. It's the perfect amount of contrast on the ebony stained hardwood. I purchased it through a carpet supplier that my company uses here in Nashville. For one custom size 9 x 9.5 ft rug, and an 8 ft runner for the hallway (always use the remnants!) I paid $420. Great deal and it's exactly what I wanted!
There's lots more to do but every little bit makes a difference in an empty house!
