Rug Hunt: Black and White

Our original rug in our SF apartment was a black and white woven mat passed down from a family friend who had picked it up in Bali (pictured here). It was great but eventually wore out and had to be replaced. Our current rug is a boring Pier One jute job. It's seen better days and I have a bad case of new rug fever.

I'd love to find another easy to clean black and white rug for the room. So far, this Cost Plus rug the closet I've found and it's too small. I need a 5x8. Any hot leads?

What about Flor? You can do any size you want and the price is pretty reasonable. I haven't seen the new decor in your living room, maybe tomorrow after our sail. But since you were looking at a black and white, I thought of this one:

Try BallardDesigns, RugsDirect, or Overstock. At Ballards, I like the Avondale.

Flor is a great idea. Also love the black and white Mammy rug from Angela Adams. How about something with a lil zebra like this one:

If you want super inexpensive, I bought a navy & white striped rug (4 actually) from IKEA. It's great, very bold and just right.
