Mohawk Home Area Rugs {Review & Giveaway}



For several months now, I've been on a new search for a new area rug for under our kitchen table that would compliment our style and yet still remain affordable. In my quest, I've learned a lot about rugs, although, a little more than one should know about them. However, I am glad I was diligent because I happen to stumble across Mohawk Home, an incredible manufacturer of stunning area rugs.


About Mohawk Industries

Mohawk Home (a division of Mohawk Industries) is the world's largest manufacturer of area and accent rugs. Mohawk Industries is one of the foremost manufacturers and distributors of residential and commercial flooring in the world. In addition to area and accent rugs, Mohawk has a large presence across multiple flooring categories, including ceramic tile, stone, wood and rugs in the United States and laminate in the U.S. and Europe. Mohawk dates its roots to the 1800's when it became one of the first American carpet manufacturers. Today the company is headquartered in Calhoun, Georgia with operations on three continents.


ace and friends thoughts

In selecting an area rug, the first thing that I look at (or for) is pattern and of course, color(s). I am very particular when it comes to adding new items to our home. The next factor that I (or shall I say, my hubby) look at is price. I want something that is stylish, yet doesn't break the bank (or solicits backlash from aforementioned hubby). When I discovered Mohawk's 5' x 8' Tropical Acres Select Strata Area Rug, I was immediately drawn to it's unique pattern, colors and style. I was in love, so next up, price... something so beautiful had to be expensive, right? Boy, was I wrong! To my surprise, this rug was not only what I was looking for, but just the right price (I know, unbelievable!) for it's size and quality. This particular rug is made in the USA (awesome), 100% nylon, rich in detail and appears to be very durable. Under the kitchen table, this rug will certainly get it's run for it's money. In case there are any spills that may happen, it is recommended that area rugs be spot cleaned with a solution of mild detergent and water or cleaned professionally. Also, regular vacuuming helps rugs remain attractive and serviceable. Easy enough, right?

{before.}

{AFTER.}
The Tropical Acres Select Strata Area Rug absolutely revived new life into the kitchen table area and I am in L.O.V.E! The colors are vibrant and the pattern was even more impressive in person. It's so, so gorgeous! Check out the up-close pattern below.



Mohawk Home also offers a large selection of other style rugs including indoor/outdoor rugs, kitchen rugs, bathroom rugs, doormats (made from recycled rubber -see below) rug pads and much more.

In addition to the amazing selection of rugs, they also offer GreenWorks, an eco-friendly line of rugs. You can find Mohawk Home's recycled products at all the largest retailers. In 2009, they diverted over 18 million pounds of rubber tires, one of the largest and most hazardous types of post-consumer waste, from landfills and brought them to homes as designer doormats. Think of it this way, that represents enough tires to outfit 225,000 cars. The mat face or image area is also stamped with 100% recycled flocking. Impressive, right? I say DEFINITELY!

Finally, what I really found to be helpful was the ability to easily locate their products in many nationwide retailers such as: Lowes, Home Depot and Target. Furthermore, to find a complete list of retailers as well as to locate one near you, please visit their website.
