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 area rug designs, from simple harmonious textures to a scene-stealing splash of colour and pattern.
As seasoned rug dealers, the Traditional Collection is the result of our inability to resist beautiful rugs! Often sourced on our travels, the collection contains a mix of the finest rugs from around the world. Including vintage Berbers, mid-century Caucasians, emblazoned Armenians, Indian Suzanis and Persian Qums, each piece is handpicked for its own unique charm. Sourcing rugs such as these is our passion – and it’s one to be shared.
As each piece in this constantly evolving collection is one of a kind, our traditional rugs are not available to buy online. If you’d like to see examples of what we currently have in stock, please contact one of our showrooms.
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.
The natural softness, warmth and resilience of hides has made them the perfect choice for floor coverings since the very beginning of history. The Rug Company has developed a range of contemporary designs and delightful plains that will bring a luxurious touch to any room.
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.
