Nothing creates more excitement at The Rug Company's design studios than the arrival of a wonderful new rug design. It's the culmination of a creative process spanning many months and numerous samples in collaboration with some of the world's greatest designers. This is a selection of our latest designs, all made with the same natural materials, incredible craftsmanship and attention to detail that we are renowned for.
We have collaborated with many of the world’s most exciting designers to bring you a spectacular collection of contemporary hand-knotted rug designs, from simple harmonious textures to a scene-stealing splash of colour and pattern.
Dhurries have been woven by hand in India for time immemorial. We are proud to continue this tradition and reinvigorate the craft with a range of bright geometric designs.
The allure of this cotton dhurrie collection is rooted in colour: from elegant greys to refreshingly bright hues, the carefully balanced colour combinations of these flatweave rugs enhance the graphic simplicity of their geometric motifs. Visually impactful yet simple in their structure, the dhurries will transform a room, bringing style and personality to contemporary or traditional interiors.
Although it is possible to order custom runners to precise dimensions, we do also carry some designs as stock.
In bright geometric designs, these runners by Paul Smith and Jonathan Saunders will brighten up any hallway. Hand knotted in hard-wearing Tibetan wool, they are made to last for generations.
Since the 16th Century the floors and walls of the great Chateaux of France and beyond were covered in Aubusson tapestry weavings. In recent times the techniques and patterns have been continued in small specialist workshops, and we have reinvigorated this art form with a dazzling array of contemporary designs alongside the faithful originals.
In 2008, Chris and Suzanne Sharp, Founders of The Rug Company, set up an arts commissioning organisation, which sought to revive the art of Tapestry, with international renowned artists inspired to create some truly incredible pieces. Visit www.bannersofpersuasion.com for more details.
Our collection of designer cushions is unlike any other. These designs are woven completely by hand, backed with natural fabrics and padded with fine goose down.

Our customers have long regarded our rugs as works of art, and many are indeed hung on the wall. We have also developed a ground-breaking collection of contemporary tapestry and needlepoint wallhangings that will bring colour, pattern, texture and a sense of fun to your wall.

When an order is placed, these rugs are made with the same craftsmanship and attention to detail as our current collections.
