I posted some time ago about my love for Flokati Rugs. They add a great textural element to the room, at a price you can afford. If fluffy and plush is not your thing, then go the other way. Sisal rugs are just as affordable as a good Flokati, and offer a nice texture to a room as well. One thing that I really love about sisal is how freindly it is to the Earth. Natural Area Rugs has some great deals on sisal rugs, without the ugly cloth border that you usually see.
