Thanks to the generosity of CSN Rugs, our church now has an amazing play rug for the children's area. A while back I mentioned that a representative from CSNRugs.com contacted me and wanted to know if I would like to write a giveaway or review post about their area rug selection. The timing was perfect because our church is currently working to set up an activity area where children can play during bible studies, meetings and other activities. CSN Rugs graciously provided us with a very large city and street play rug for review. Although we still need to purchase chairs and a bookshelf, the activity area looks marvelous so far, as you can see in the above picture.
CSN offers a wide range of rugs including many, many kids area rugs. We received a 5'3" x 7'6" L.A Rugs Supreme Streets Rug ($185). While CSNRugs.com no longer offer the supreme version with hand carved pile, a nearly identical rug is available in sizes up to 4'3'' x 6'6'' under the name, Fun Time Around Town Road Rug. The church on the upper left of the rug looks very similar to our church and the kids have a great time pretending to drive people to services and parking the cars! The rug we received features hand carved pile around the buildings and roads and is very plush and soft to the touch. The roads are wide enough that the kids can use the large, chunky Hasbro plastic cars and multiple children can easily play together on it. Non-skid backing keeps the rug in place. While the price for the supreme rugs seems a bit high, the quality of the rug we received is much higher than those we considered purchasing from the big box stores. The rug shipped quickly after the order was placed and was packaged well, rolled up onto a cardboard tube and covered in heavy duty plastic wrap.
I've spent quite a bit of time browsing the CSNRugs.com website and the selection is very, very large. The Joy Carpets line offers several rugs appropriate for educational classrooms, daycare and library use and includes The Faith Based Collection, perfect for religious organizations looking for commercial grade rugs. If you are looking for a supreme style rug like ours with hand carved pile, I recommend you you check out the The Supreme Collection From L.A. Rugs. CSN Rugs strives to offer the very best deal with their 120% Price Match Guarantee.
Many thanks to CSN Rugs for the opportunity to review a rug and for providing our church with the play rug. The members at our church truly appreciate it!
