We believe all design should be beautiful, functional and livable. While not every piece in your home is going to last years and years, it's still attractive to have pieces in you home that can handle accidents, pets, and family members. I have a husband, two sons, and two dogs so I understand the luxury of having beautiful and washable pieces. While I'm not super fussy about every rug being bulletproof, I do like having washable rugs in high traffic areas. In my home, it's the kitchen! Walmart Home is a great resource for washable rugs that still look beautiful.
