IKEA Flatwoven Rug

I'm kind of obsessed with the idea of this ALVINE rug by IKEA right now....
via IKEA
For a handwoven rug, 100% wool, reversible, $299 is about as good as it gets (unless you live in the US in which case it's only $249!).
And of course, I'm loving the pink... I know, you're shocked.
Decor wise, my room could definitely use a rug (and curtains but that's a whole other blog post), but I probably won't bite the bullet. I will only be here for another year or two before I hopefully get a bigger apartment with my OWN kitchen. That's the dream people, and when I will really start investing in pieces. But this sure would look good in my lil studio as is!

I haven't seen it in person yet...have any of you!? I'm curious how it looks. The first image I posted looks gorge, but the second one looks a little muddied.

Yes, I heard that there are many Persian rugs as well as modern rugs over at Rugman dot com, but they are all in the oriental style.
