Your Porch will No Longer Blame its Frumpiness on You
It's now possible to make that rug outside your front-door nicer than the one just inside. What outside rug, you ask? The National Geographic Store sells Recycled Plastic Outdoor Rugs woven in traditional Turkish Design. Made from items including plastic soda bottles, milk bottles, and bubble rap, they are a reversible, sustainable version of the classic oriental rug. At 5'x8' these rugs could easily fit into a living room, but would surely live up to their mildew-proof and water-shedding abilities better on your porch.
My favorite thing about this rug is the "thing-where-it's-not-supposed-to-be" element - the oriental rug outdoors. If this rug were only offered in solid colors or stripes, it wouldn't be featured here. Designs come in your choice of blue or rust.
