Anyone ever used bound edge wall-to-wall carpet as an area rug?

We have a very large bedroom and an even larger great room in our new place and I was wondering if the answer to finding the right size rug for atop our hardwood floors could be to find a subtly patterned wall-to-wall carpet and just binding the edges to meet our needs. Has anyone done this? Does it look low-end? Actually got the inspiration from the new Restoration Hardware catalogs, where a lot of the area rugs are very neutral with subtle patterns. Don't want to make a beautiful room look "less" -- but finding it really hard to find large, subtle floor rugs.

Thanks for any help (including "oh please don't" type comments, if needed).
