The first is a recycled jute pad that is as dense as can be for its kind. This is a 40 ounce weight, which is on the higher quality level of jute pads. This weight means there is a dense compression of fiber per square yard and this is important for protection and resistance. This pad can be used under all antique rugs that do not tend to slide around, mainly room size ones.

Even a long, narrow room can benefit from a rectangular rug. Indeed, the shape of your rug will depend on the furniture in the room just as much as the shape and size of the room. For example, a long dining room table is complimented nicely by a rectangular rug, regardless of the shape of the room. Also, don't be afraid to use your creativity when choosing rugs which are available in a wide range of shapes from circular, oval, square and rectangular to more abstract shapes.

Wall decals are adhesive prints that can be stuck onto the wall and if necessary, removed and swapped out for new wall decals as desired. Like the painting or the photograph, a wall decal can be any number of designs or prints. For example, a wall decal could be a large geometric print. It could be a group of bubbles. It could be a tree or a flower, it could also be a person. Essentially, any graphic that can be made on a computer can be made into a wall decal.

Most quality pillows are two separate pieces, the cover and the actual pillow. A removable cover is quite handy when it comes time to clean the pillow, and can be reused after years of wear have flattened the original interior pillow. Also note that good fill materials should flatten easily but not permanently. You can test this by giving a little punch to the center of the pillow, if the pillow does not budge then it is made of cheap synthetics that will stay flat forever once they do get a little wear. If the pillow takes a moment but eventually gets it's swagger back this is a good indicator that the pillow can be easily fluffed and will spring back to life over years of usage. Fill materials usually range from synthetic polyester to full on goose down and everything in-between. Down pillows are excellent, but if you are purchasing one be sure to inspect the insulation quality of the feathers. Feather tips sticking out of the pillow are a good indicator of expensive materials coupled with shady craftsmanship (not to mention getting poked).
