Have you tried Ikea? You can order some of their stuff online if you don't have a store nearby.

I got a really nice rug in Argos clearance last year. It was reduced from over £100 to £24.99.

Asda direct have some nice rugs and cushions online.

I got a flatweave rug in ikea for £20 last week - grey with green, blue and red stripes. There were several others on sale there as well. You can get coordinating cushions for not too much.

TK maxx have some great rugs in. I bought one for £60 yesterday which is like a Madeline Weinrib (always advertised in posh mags and £600+. Not so keen on their cushions but H and M/ikea as previous posters said cannot be beaten on price. If you have a sewing machine could you make the cushions? Then you can embellish with ribbon trim or buttons to match your rug. It is all sewing in straight lines and pressing with an iron. Loads of online tutorials.

Thanks! I'm looking, wendybird is that rug you got on the ikea website? I know not all their stuff is on the web.

Will look in TK max.

What do you think of this rug from BnQ?
I'm rubbish at colours.

We have a brown carpet, light green moss sofa and purple curtains (more burgandy than purple) I told you I'm rubbish with colours blush

Bumping for help!!!

The one I got from ikea was this one but in a larger size - maybe 200 x 240 <can't be arsed to get off sofa and measure>. Usually retails for £50, but on sale for £20. It was on the website last week, but isn't now, so perhaps being discontinued.

What size do you need?

Incidently I've just bought two of these and taped them together to make a big rug. The colours would go with what you describe, though I may consider something lighter if your carpet is brown.
