A Lorena Canals rug is every parents’ dream.
Now, you might not know it until your very own, handmade in India with non-toxic dyes, rug arrives, but you’ll know it from the very first magical touch.
Once unpackaged, expect the rug to become the place to hang out; to have date night once the kids are in bed or to have indoor picnics with no fear of kids spilling because the rug is machine washable!
We live in a small house with limited space, so we have multifunctional rooms such as our den/playroom. Trying to decorate to accommodate adult preferences while maintaining a youthful and fun feel for the kids is no easy task. We’ve settled into a color scheme that works for us involving grey, green, & brown, and an occasional touch of blue or pink. My husband was adamant that the World Map rug was the one for us, but I was hesitant because online it looks brown, but it’s actually two tonal grey! I was so excited to see it in person and I honestly can’t imagine us with a different one now. It fits so perfectly in front of our couch, although we’re hoping to upgrade soon. Can you tell it’s been well-loved? The World Map rug really is the best of both worlds (pun intended). It lends a certain level of sophistication to our room, but is still a great teaching tool for the kiddos. In fact, our son is already asking about the continents and where we live.
As soon as I spread the rug out on the floor, I laid down immediately and was struck with how plush it was without being overly large or heavy. I literally was so comfy that I didn’t want to move and so the kids just stayed on the floor with me playing with their toys and looking at books until bedtime. I didn’t have to worry about having them on the rug first thing because all Lorena Canals rugs are natural and eco-friendly, so they don’t contain any nasty VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and won’t off gas.
And while the no off gassing thing makes this eco-mama super happy, I don’t want to forget to mention that the rug is also soft and marvelously inviting. The other afternoon, I found our toddler laying down on it watching his movie instead of sitting on the couch. And the husband and I have even sat on it every night while eating dinner and then well into the night without being desperate to get off the previously extremely hard ground. It’s that comfortable!
Lorena Canals has so many colors, patterns, and sizes to choose from that I know you’ll find one to fit your space perfectly! I definitely want to get the Round ABC Vintage rug soon. Talk about perfect for the toddler’s book nook!
