13 Aug Comina in Concord (Part 3)
Today’s Concord shop is Comina, a lovely store which features home furnishings and accessories. A family owned business for over 25 years, Comina brings stylish and quality merchandise from around the world to your home. They have several locations in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
This petite loveseat greeted me as I walked in the door.
My favorite colors!
And then this rug caught my eye…
I am planning a living room project in our home, which hopefully will happen in the next few weeks. The carpet is getting ripped out and I’ll paint the wood floors that are underneath. Our house is over 100 years old, and I’m not sure if these are the original floors, but believe me, they are not pretty!! The wood planks, which vary between 4” – 10” wide, were painted chocolate brown. Yikes! We have similar wood flooring on our third floor which I painted years ago, and it’s holding up pretty well. I did think about putting in hardwood floors in the living room, but at this point am looking for a frugal fix. Once the living room floors are painted gray, I’ll put an 8 x 10 area rug on top. So I’ve been on the hunt for a new rug. And this one may be it. It’s by Dash & Albert, a Massachusetts rug company that offers a selection of wool, cotton, indoor/outdoor, and blended rugs in a variety of beautiful weaves. Don’t these colors make you smile?
Comina carries Dash & Albert’s rug line, and has samples in the store.
Above are some of their wool rugs. The third one down is the rug I saw in the store that I liked for my living room, but after seeing the lighter gray option right above it, now I’m leaning towards that one. Decisions to be made…
As you can see, Dash & Albert has a great selection. I have their blue and white stripe indoor/outdoor rug in our bathroom (shown below). Every few months I throw it in the tub, give it a gentle scrubdown and rinse, hang it up to dry, and it looks just like new! They are super durable.
Dash & Albert also offers decorative pillows, cotton throws, tote bags, poufs and outdoor furniture. You can see their full collection here.
I got so wrapped up in checking out Comina’s selection of rugs that I forgot to take more pictures of all the other great home decor items they have in the store…sorry! You’ll have to go and see for yourself!
And stay tuned for my living room floor redo…coming soon!
