crap. I especially love the little mane sticking up. BARF.

Ha!
I sort of loved this!
The price, not so much, but I thought it was cheeky and fun, especially for those who don't embrace real animal pelts.
Cheers, Alcira

For pity's sake stitch the poor bugger back together again. What an eyesore!

I think it would be cute in a kids room - but if it is jute and not soft then not so much

I am gonna vote crap. West Elm's jute is appropriate for outdoors, so I would be a bit tempted to put this on my patio in the summer.

Make it stop!!!!

this is the kind of stuff that gives me a headache. It's so totally impractical. In other words, to look at something "different," I'm going to break a limb. Sorry, I vote for crap.

my favorite and my best said...

Before I read the caption, I thought it looked like terry or bathmat material, seemingly cute for a kids bathroom. Then I read it was jute, and got annoyed.

Hi Raina...first off...feeling better? hope so

and yes, it is a big pile!

Why not just flush the money in the turlett and then follow with the rug.

More importantly, who thinks this stuff up?

And what goofy buyer writes the order to get it into a store so some crazy person feels the need to buy it?

xo Happy 2011; totally enjoy your humor and your love of design!

I think it's hilarious but I wouldn't want it in my home. Dead jute. Happy New Year and I hope your health improves. xx

It looks like someone put Little Muffy's pet pony through one of those machines that flatten pennies into souveniers. Mom and Dad better start saving up for her therapy.

It will look adorable in the kid's room! So cute! Happy 2011! Kellie xx

Mrs Woog said...

ditto modfrugal. Also, can't get the Olson post off my mind. Do you remember the time she did the dome topped trash can in the middle of some poor homeowner's kitchen penisula?!! too much.
PS: Hope you feel better soon. M.

Would be cute in a kids room.

Sharon @ Real Estate Resuscitation said...

Saw that in the catalog just yesterday. Definitely crap.

Modern Country Lady said...

More than anything, so enjoy everybody's comment- Raina, you should start your own comedy show with guests!
This of course is a pile of poo and a right old rip- off, but that is only my opinion, hahaha!!
Hope you feel much better and send you lots of healing vibes- but then they say laughter is the best medicine, and I certainly feel cheered up by this nonsensical rug so maybe we should all have one ..NO!! only joking ..
HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR XXX By the way

In jute, crap. In a soft material for a nursery or playroom, clever.

For that price- shit.

Nick Klaus said...

Crap. I'm putting this in the same boat as those cardboard fake animal head trophy things.

designstiles said...

That tail scares me....like a lot.

Bri@Meyouandawiener said...

For a kids room maybe although I'm pretty sure if I ever put this crap in my kid's room he'd pick it up and throw it back in my face like WTF mom!

So I vote crap.
