I think Ralph Lauren called some tribal patterns 'beacon'.

Bit of an odd question but how do you find the acoustics in your rooms with shutters? I have no curtains up in most rooms at the moment while I wait for my shutters and the rooms have loads of reverb / echo, obviously curtains dampen sound abit have you had to do anything to dampen sound in your rooms? Or If anyone else knows what I'm talking about do you have any suggestions?

Not much you can do about it unless you can be bothered with special acoustic wall coverings.

Any soft furnishing will do the job but curtains are most effective as they're covering a large area.

Thanks Joe but I don't think that's what it's called on the products

Thanks Crackajack, that search led to a few leads but about a year ago I saw a recent release RL fleece rug with that pattern going on ebay and amazon for about $500. Can't track it down now. Slept.

Fucken silver spoons man. How much did a combo unit even cost then??? My uncle gave me shit. Same as my whole family. I owe them nothing is the upside.

I worked graveyard shifts cleaning floors 12AM to 8AM for 3 years, taught little shits in Japan for peanuts and now I enter data day in day out, sometimes do mad overtime, unpaid, as is the norm in Australia. I worked fucken hard too, been paying market rent since I was 18, sometimes I couldn't even find a job, worked fucken hard to get a job then as well also. Still paying off my uni at 46 years old. Got $35,000 to go, I own some clothes. Never been able to buy a car my whole life. Been thinking about a bicycle for 5 years now. Still bus it.

West Elm have some nice looking Moroccan styles . They have discount codes quite regularly.

We’ve got this one. We couldn’t find an ‘authentic’ one wide enough with the dimensions we needed. The real ones are generally quite narrow.

I've got a similair one for sale, I don't think its particularly old, attributed to the atlas mtns and came from Morocco, it's quite a shaggy one and has some discolouring on one part, as supplied. Also have a nice colourful Tapis Boucherouite which we may let go, contrasting colours over cream/off-white (looks like space invader symbols around the edge! Makes a great nursery rug)

I got mine from this shop, good quality and fairly cheap (e.g. this one: https://www.etsy.com/fr/listing/572663107/bayna?ref=shop_home_active_34). Really happy with it.

That's very nice.
Fantastic site to browse, they had a place that Stephen Fry used to live in that had a tree growing in it a while back that was amazing/
