The Canadian Ikea: Good-Looking, Neutral Rugs from EQ3

January 7, 2020

For months—coming up on 12, to be exact—I’ve been searching for a good-looking area rug for our bedroom that’s neutral (so I won’t get tired of it) but not boring. It’s surprisingly hard to find. Until, that is, a neighbor from the north arrived: EQ3, what I’d venture to call the Canadian Ikea, which opened a three-level flagship in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood this fall. Among pretty well-priced midcentury furniture and lighting, their rugs are all neutral with a twist:s sure to fit in any room, without sacrificing on the intriguing factor. Take a look—many of them are currently on sale.

(All prices given are sale prices for the 8×10 size, except where noted.)
