So Prot, we never have heard if you needed us to plan a get together to help the sellers vacate your house.

This being JF, we could burn their house down.

It is possible we may have to do it. I have insured the house for twice as much as money as what I paid for it.

I went by on 12/21 and the only thing that he has done as for as packing or moving was he took the paintings off the walls and put them in a stack in one of the bedrooms. The good thing is that he does have on of those PODS in the front yard now, so that is encouraging.

I'd say its gone.

On the actual question, I say wait until you get the furniture.

Buy my transmission cooler. Derale TJ cooler.

The last time I talked to him he told me he would be on by December 30. I have not test fitted my Jeep in the garage yet. I hope it is not too tall to fit in. If it is, I may have to air down to park in the garage

In an effort to salvage some sort of respect in this thread, I have two new 55" LED tv's sitting in my enclosed motorcycle trailer that I am just waiting to put in the new house.

Maybe I should go with a rug like this:

We could always have a big campout in the yard over the New Years holiday weekend!

Jeeps, bonfire, drinking, me making unwanted advance at the woman (and you at the man), I bet they will leave their stuff for Prot and leave immediately!

All those rugs you showed SCREAM paisley, 4pm dinner old lady. Why not bring some funk with your leather and red furniture since that's all plain/no pattern??

I think "the funk" is too modern of a look for the space. His furniture would not correspond with those rugs.

That being said I like the last one or rug #2 in the OP.

Umm, there are no patterns on the furniture he showed, any of the rugs above will go with them.

Contemporary furniture, don't old-lady it up with with a traditional rug...unless he's planning on putting a china cabinet in the room and plastic covers on that chair and sofa.

Hell even something 1 color would look fine.

I didn't say that the furniture had a pattern, because clearly, it does not.

I am not trying to "old lady" it up. The style of the furniture and the woodworking on the tables are not modern. Modern would have cleaner lines and less ornate carvings.

I just feel that the furniture style and table style is more traditional and perhaps the other rugs you posted were too modern. That's my opinion.

Yes, a solid color would work fine too.

I am curious as to what the OP will go with. Everyone has different personal tastes.
