Hem…Being a person of RARE taste and discernment, I obviously NEVER bought an ugly rug.
My wife, though, never blessed by such a perfection, is occasionally prone to some errors of judgement. One of them, she asserts, was in marrying me. Another one was to buy this rather UNPLEASANT… thing, if I may say so. On the screen it doesn’t look too bad, actually.
Being also quite a tolerant fellow I did not object, at the time, to her purchase - hoping, I have to admit, that my benevolence could be reciprocated if, in the future, a similar circumstance should occur.
This utterly rustic rug is characterized by very UNNATURAL colours, if I may say so. Bright but lifeless. The wool is low-quality, dull and dry. Why my wife likes it? It’s still a deep mystery to me.
As they used to say, “De gustibus non est disputandum”.
My best regards,
