Choosing a rug for every space in your home can be a daunting task. Whether you are struggling with size, shape or choosing the perfect colour, our in-house studio suggests the perfect rug to weave through every room.

The Living Room

A statement piece will add personality and creativity to any living room. Choose your design in the same way you would choose a piece of art and make it the focal point of your home. Making a bold statement in the living room is the perfect conversation starter when you are entertaining guests. As a general rule, a seating area needs a rug to make it feel complete.

In a larger open space, rugs can be used to define different areas and create rooms within rooms.

The Dining Room

For a dining room, our design team suggest using a rug with a border or a repeating pattern so you won’t lose the motif under your dining room table. A large rug under your table will deaden sound, allowing your guests to converse more easily and will also bring colour, pattern and texture to your space.

Ideally, your rug should be in proportion to the table and larger, so that there is sufficient space to pull out a chair and sit down without the back legs coming off the rug.

The Bedroom

When choosing a rug for your bedroom, think texture! Create a tranquil retreat by using a soft, sink-into mohair rug, with a sumptuous deep pile or choose a handcarved silk rug with a subtle metallic sheen for a sophisticated space.

For a bedroom, a rug can be placed underneath the bed, framing it but stopping short of the side tables; alternatively running all the way to the headboard end which allows for the rug underfoot when one gets out of bed.

The Study

Studies don’t need to be serious. From libraries to corner nooks, a study can come in all shapes and sizes, but the purpose is all the same. Organic abstract designs and solid colour rugs help to create a serene space for you to catch up on your reading or to take meetings in a distraction-free environment.

The Staircase

Though some may not consider the staircase to be a room, it can often be the centrepiece of a home. With our Custom and Bespoke service, you can adapt one of our existing designs or let your imagination run wild. So whether you choose a school of fish swimming upstream, a climbing leopard racing to the top flight or a transitional pattern offering a visual feast from floor to floor, be courageous and choose something totally unexpected.

The Outdoor Space

Transform a dull outdoor dining area or poolside patio with a bright and unexpected pop of colour. Using a larger rug in your alfresco area will make the space feel bigger and is also a great way to hide any unsightly flooring. Not all rugs are suitable for the outdoors, however, we do suggest our Endurance collection which is built for exactly that purpose. Stain, fade and mildew resistant, our Perennials collection are inspired by the pastel colours of mid-century California and are the perfect addition to your outdoor oasis.
