Review: Carpet Call Ebony Rug – decorating our Living Room!

This Carpet Call Ebony Rug review is in collaboration with Carpet Call.

We’re finally in our “forever home” and can’t wait to show you around! I’m reviewing a gorgeous new Carpet Call Ebony rug so I’m starting with our living room.

We’re still unpacking in most of the rooms so far but the living is unpacked. Now we’re in the process of adding some decorative touches to it.

As with the rest of the house, the walls are all white, which I love. We will be adding some feature walls into some of the rooms, including the living room. For now though, we want to decorate this room in neutral tones while we decide where to add colour.

Carpet Call Ebony Rug Review

Our furniture is all from Freedom but we couldn’t find a rug we loved in their current range for this room.

After spending just a few minutes on the Carpet Call website, I knew we would find something perfect for what we were looking for. In fact, I think we changed our mind at least 5 times because there were so many gorgeous rugs to choose from.

These factors were important to us

  • A neutral tone: beige or grey.
  • Nothing too “busy”.
  • A pattern that might help hide any spillages from the kids!
  • Large enough to cover most of the floor space.
  • A timeless design – modern but nothing too quirky.

How we found the right Rug

The website allows you filter rugs by type and the ones we loved the most were in the Modern section.

We loved so many of the rugs in the Modern section!

After filtering the page by our colour choices, we opted for the Ebony Rug in size 200cm x 290cm.

The Carpet Call Ebony Rug

It’s a beautiful beige and grey rug which is stain resistant and easy to clean – so important for a family with little kids! It’s also very soft underfoot and feels really luxurious.

Delivery is free in Australia and super quick too and the rug arrived really well wrapped up and well packaged.

The rug came so well wrapped up!

I’ve ordered rugs before that have been stored coiled up and have needed to stick them to the floor to stop the edges sticking up! This one had been stored flat and with it’s hemmed ends, it rolled out and sat completely flat on the carpet.

I’m sure that this rug is made for our living room as it fits perfectly!

It’s added such a lovely, subtle “pop” to the room and matches our existing furniture really well. I know that when we add more decor and colour to the room as the months go on, we’ll be so happy that we chose the Ebony rug.
