Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve covered the “Casper of vintage rugs,” surveyed designers for the best area rugs under $500, and talked about the best coffee tables to place upon them, here we’re singling out the best budget area rugs for under $200, as reviewed on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)
