Rugs Through the Years: Cat’s Paw

Rugs Through The Years: Cat's Paw | Annie Selke's Fresh American Style

Welcome to the ninth installment of our monthly series, “Rugs Through the Years!” Throughout this year-long series, we’re highlighting our 12 best-selling rugs and showing a few ways each fan favorite has been styled since its debut. Last month, we highlighted our Plain Tin Rug and this month, we’re looking back on our durable yet stylish Cat’s Paw Wool Micro Hooked Rug, available in six beautiful colorways! The design for Cat’s Paw was based on an antique rug that Annie found at Brimfield shortly after the launch of Dash & Albert.

As the cherry on top, we’ll be giving away a Cat’s Paw Rug to one lucky reader – up to a 5×8 size! Let’s take a look back on some of the ways this iconic Dash & Albert piece has been styled in years past…

 

Did you know that our Cat’s Paw Blue rug graced the floors of the Obama White House? While we don’t know what room it was used in, we’re happy to know that it’s a presidential favorite.

Although it’s not my favorite colorway, I love the moment with Googie and Impy the most because it is so sweet. They look as though they are contemplating a name change to Dog’s Paw.

My favorite memory is the one that let us readers know that there was a Cat’s Paw in the White House. Shows the good taste the Obamas have.

My fav is the natural cat’s paw, Love the richness of the colors, the fun pattern, and the feel of wool underfoot. Annie, my Golden Retriever would think she was the cat’ meow!

I love the cozy bedroom, and how the warmth of the browns in the bed cover and wood furniture is complemented by the cool blue Cats Paw rug.

My favorite pattern by far! Colorful yet classic at the same time which makes them so versatile. I’m definitely partial to the blue Cats Paw -although the brown one is a close runner up!

I love them all. I love. No. Am obsessed with these rugs. Have adored them forever! I especially love the brown… Seems so warm, and cozy. Some things are meant to treasure forever. This rug is one of them.

The scene showcasing the brown cat’s paw rug is my fav. They kept the walls and trim plain and it really allowed the rug to become the centre of the room and the eye easily is drawn through the antique side table up to the art on the wall. Love it!

Favorite moment is in my own home, bought the green Cat’s Paw rug to place in the nursery when my oldest daughter was a baby. Now, with two more daughters in our family it remains a cheerful favorite that grows my girls, a true classic!

I love the blue in the cozy bedroom! I think it would be the perfect thing to add some pattern and color into our bedroom! Fingers crossed!

My fav is Cats Paw in Natural. Because it’s makes me think of happy, sophisticated confetti on the floor. And we all know we need more fun in our lives.

This has been a favorite of mine for years! Always timeless, just need to decide on the color… the Black is calling my name! The ottomans are fantastic too. Fingers crossed… plus I have stayed off the naughty list!

This is such a nice modern update on a timeless classic. The natural cat’s paw is my favorite, and not just because of Googie and Impy

This is such a fun rug design. My favorites are the blue and the natural but I love the green too. I’d start with the Natural color showcased with your two adorable dogs, Googie and Impy. I have sable Shelties and their hair would blend right in. Doesn’t everyone get rugs that match their pets?

Matching rugs to pets is a great thing to consider! We love it!!
