Here, our Diamond Slate and Light Blue Indoor/Outdoor Rug designates a casual al fresco dining space. No need to roll up this rug during sunny days to prevent fading. These polypropylene wonders are fade-resistant, so you can leave them outside all summer.

 

Midcentury Modern Bedroom

Peaceful Porches is my favorite Diamond Moment! I live in a historical neighborhood where we all gather on each other’s porches to socialize! You must be ready to entertain on your porch, with cocktails, southern snacks and a little gossip!

It’s pretty hard to choose but I tend to gravitate towards serene and outdoorsy decor. Oh the Beachside Patio is my fave! Sometimes people tend to forget that rugs are very versatile and can be used indoor and outdoor, in an entryway or even on a beach. The color reflects the color of the water which gives that feeling of calmness for me. Love it.

I love love love this rug and bought it a couple years ago in platinum for my kids’ playroom. It made the room and pulled everything together. Such a classic and great design. We recently moved to Hawaii and sadly we couldn’t bring it with us. 🙁 would LOVE to have this rug again for our huge outdoor lanai. I’m drawn to the outdoor setting above because the rug is such a great indoor/outdoor durable rug and I’d love to have it in an outdoor setting this time around!!

Purchased two of these rugs in platinum last year for our kitchen and dining room – love the look and practicality (have dogs) however, I do not like that they do not lay flat and tend to pucker up (especially around the chairs) – as well, at times a thread becomes loose and I have to weave it back in (annoying). Once I vacuum the rugs, they lie flat but disappointed that this pucker always happens and therefore would probably not purchase again.

Hi Nancy, so sorry you are having this issue! One suggestion we would have would be to use a thin rug pad, like our outdoor rug pad. This will give less cushion so that chairs and other furniture won’t push down so much on the rug.

Reply
Nancy July 25, 2017 at 1:33 pm

I purchased your Solid Extra-Grip rug pad which doesn’t work well on the 10 X 14 size of rug but is ok with the matching 4 X 6 size. Is there another solution for the large size rugs as can’t be the first time to hear such feedback? Thanks.

Reply
Nicole July 25, 2017 at 1:40 pm

Our Rug-Stop Rug Pad is thinner but will still keep your rug in place. That should help solve the issue you are having!

For me, peaceful porches is my favorite. This pattern is my favorite for indoor or outdoor living spaces because it makes your space feel like home. As a busy 1st grade teacher, I enjoy coming home to a calm and peaceful environment and going straight to my front porch to grade papers and enjoy the evening weather. This rug crests such porch goals that you see in every Pinterest picture! I’m in love and adding it to my wishlist!

My favorite diamond “moment” is the Porch with the Diamond Denim/White Indoor/Outdoor Rug. I love the juxtaposition of the traditional porch entryway with the contemporary pieces. The rug adds a bold and vibrant pop of color that is so fun and playful. I envision that this room draws the outside in and is the place to head to when you just want to kick off your shoes, sink down in a comfy chair, and escape to enjoy coffee, afternoon tea, or cocktails with friends.

The beachside patio is very inspiring! I live in SoCal but nowhere near the beach so I would love to recreate this look so that I can pretend we live by the beach!! We just put up a pergola (only took 7 years- ha!) and I would love to put the diamond rug under our furniture… I’ve decided to make our backyard the kind of backyard that I’ve always dreamed of, beachfront property or not! If I try really hard, I’m sure I can smell the ocean 😉

I love every one of the rugs in every color! I would have to play eeny meeny miny mo to pick one. I think my favorite moment is the all blue porch. It seems so inviting. I would love to sit back with a glass of wine and relax with a bunch of my favorite people!

Love them all and have bought three of the four featured rugs. I have been giving rugs as baby shower gifts and wedding shower gifts. These rugs are particularly wonderful in the nursery and kitchen not just on the porch.
They provide easy care when soiled, are classic and a great foundation for any decorating scheme. The first rug (light blue and ivory) is very popular amongst the young moms and couples as it has a light gray hue and goes with everything and is very serene. I am an Annie Selkie addict and admittedly I have a rug problem but no one seems to mind because I share. I love turning people on to this fabulous company. Annie Selkie eliminates the hassle of running around trying to coordinate rooms with her vast selection of rugs of all sizes and materials. not to mention the coordinating linens!
