I love the blue wonder rug! I really like the colors and it would be great in my son's room! Count me in!
All the rugs are gorgeous... but my favorite rug is definetly the blue forest rug. I love the complimentary colors and the different textures look inviting! The design reminds me of our memorable family trips in the mountains.
I like the purple wonder wool rug best. It would look wonderful in my daughter's room. She's seen it and loves it!
Green Wonder is really great but I also love the Blue Bubble... these are really gorgeous and Jasper needs a rug as cool as his sister's!
I love the deer wool rug, especially in purple, though the green is great too. I love whimsy, and woodland creatures are especially whimsical.
I like the Wonder and Bubble patterns in sage--so peaceful--but the purple would also look so cool in my baby's room.

The 60 wool rug perks my interest the most! The hardest thing would be choosing the best color because both the green or blue are fantastic! Either would look perfect in my son's room (or anywhere else in the house!).
I love the green wonder wool rug- I just love green and brown together! My little Man wears green and brown all the time.

lilly loves the pink bubble wool rug b/c EVERYTHING is the color pink when you ask and the only thing she can draw right now is a circle! (so maybe they're not perfect circles and a little bit more of zig zag lines, but to her they are all circles -or giraffes- she's 2...what can i say?)

The blue bubble rug is too adorable! I have rug envy badly right now. I can picture it in my son's room right now. It's so bare and could really use a kick of color and some warmth.
the blue wonder rug is gorgeous! my third child got the total shaft when he was born and he really didn't get anything new in there. it's really just a mismatched mess! i would love to center a design style around this.

My 3 year old is very into shapes and lines and how they link together and this rug would certainly add a new dimension to his room.
I really like the blue bubbles rug. It would go perfectly by my 1-year-old's new little bed (He has to give up the crib to his baby brother soon). I imagine it would make a nice, soft place to play.
wonder is my fave!
