Rugs and lights: two essentials.
This was a lo....ng wait. We ordered these two runners through Joss & Main, and then we waited, and waited, and waited. They were held up in customs we were told. But finally, they arrived and I love them!
They're made from recycled plastic and are totally washable. An added benefit is that they sort of stick to the floor: no slipping at all! And they're comfy on the feet: like nice, thick padding.
Here is the company website, although I couldn't find any retailers in the States (and no, the sale at Joss & Main is long over).
