Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doc Safavieh "Heritage Blue/Blue" dresses up my cabin
Just over a year ago, I bought a cabin adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Central NC. It came with a wood stove made in Atlanta, which was anything but air tight and sent a lot of the heat up the chimney. The interior and exterior of the cabin are earth tones, contrasted by the natural pine finish of tongue and groove "knotty pine" planks lining the walls and ceiling in the two bedrooms, and the inner wall of the "great room" (combined kitchen, parlor and inner living room).
I wanted to replace the wood stove with the same brand but a smaller model of a soapstone stove I had in my house in the lower Hudson River valley of NY before moving to NC 5 years ago, as I liked the blue-green hue of the stone, and now it was available with a "Seafoam" blue majolica enamel trim. The great room needed brightening up, and this was exactly the stove to do it.
The floor gets fairly cold in the winter, so when Home Depot offered a sale on area rugs in August, I reviewed all 6' x 9' products - the perfect size for the oval dining room set - and stopped when I saw the Safavieh "Heritage Blue/Blue" (internet number 205638418) as it was the perfect complement to the soapstone and trim of this wood stove.
The Heritage is a very dense, well made carpet, with vibrant colors in fluorescent lighting, and the wool construction will no doubt keep my feet warm on those snowy winter evenings. Combined with the "Thin Profile" non-slip rug pad (internet number 203173558), it offers a very comfortable cushion feel, without being overly thick.
After placing the rug pad, then locating the Heritage carpet over it, I took a photo with my iPhone, but had to take a separate photo of the stove since the iPhone flash is not very strong. The exterior photo was taken at the end of January, and being born and raised in western NY state, I miss the white stuff now that I am in the Triad area where I work (High Point).
As an added bonus, the price of the carpet was reduced online an additional 5% (to an already 20% reduction) after I had ordered it, and when I went to pick up the carpet and pad, the store associate in customer pickup went the extra mile to call Home Depot Online and arrange for them to credit my account for the difference. A huge thanks goes out to Home Depot for the beautiful carpet addition to my cabin, and to the store associate that went out of her way to help save me money. These are another reminder of why I shop at Home Depot, and not Lowes.
