i like the experience of having our circle time rug in the center of our room, but the rug alone looked stark and ungrounded.
it didn’t feel practical to keep the canopy and rocking chairs, though. instead i cut strips of the fabric and created the feel of walls around our rug. i’ve been surprised that none of the fabric has been pulled down yet! i will need to take it down for the weekend anyway, but it has been worth the experience of flowing walls.
