I have just received the Red Fire Opal rug woven by Irene Ruiz. It looks absolutely stunning, beyond my expectation. The vibrant colors bring energy and life to my living room. I have to visit this place and see where the inspiration comes from. Irene, muchas gracias per esto tesoro. Espero di encontrar usted en persona.

I just purchased three of these for my living room and they are all just fantastic looking. The colors are amazing, and they bring a real warmth to the room. They go very nice with everything, including new cork floor.

This rug is true to the colors in the pictures and is perfect for my living room - just as I had hoped. Its colorful and eyecatching without taking over the room altogether. A perfect centerpiece.
