Colours – like pale grey and rich amber, textures – like luxurious shag and lustrous cowhide, patterns – like subtle geometrics and bold gestures, and shapes – like classic rounds and freeform abstracts. Rugs can do it all.
Rugs have the power to transform your space into an extraordinary place. While simple, textured rugs can create a cohesive look in your living room, bold, colourful rugs can bring almost any bedroom back to life.
Ideal for open plan living spaces, modern rugs are often used to add style and define different areas of the home. While smaller spaces often look best with just one rug, large multipurpose or open plan living spaces can benefit from multiple rugs and can be a great way to separate your living area from your dining space. Used to add warmth, modern rugs also have a place in the bedroom, home office, and even the kitchen.
Whether you're looking for a statement piece to complement your coffee table or multiple kitchen rugs to layer, there’s a rug in the shape, size, pattern, and colour for you. Can’t decide? Let our interior stylists help! From measuring floor space to selecting the perfect rug for your flooring, our interior consultants are always on hand to offer expert advice and excellent customer service.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT RUG: SIZE
The first thing to do when looking for a new rug is to determine what size rug you need. Measure your floor space and consider elements like furniture, doors, curtains and walkways. Large rugs tend to make great dining and living room rugs but stylish small rugs can work too — it’s all about finding the right balance.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT RUG: SHAPE
Secondly, you need to think about shape. Square and rectangular rugs offer a streamlined look in any room. Ideal under a traditional dining table, they offer flexibility and work under almost any furniture arrangement in a large open space.
Rounds rugs, on the other hand, work best in smaller rooms and odd-shaped spaces. A good way to create visual interest, round rugs soften the lines of any space. Browse our range of traditional rugs, modern designer rugs and more to find the right shape for your space.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT RUG: FABRIC AND MATERIAL
Next up, you need to consider fabric and material. Offering a different look and feel, leather rugs and wool rugs are often more durable and stain-resistant, making them popular options for the modern home. Think about placement and whether the rug will receive a lot of wear. Kitchen rugs, for example, are more likely to come in contact with food and liquid than home office rugs.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT RUG: COLOUR AND PATTERNS
And lastly, you need to determine whether you want a plain rug or a patterned rug. When it comes to plain rugs, block colour rugs with texture are always a reliable option. Rattan rugs add a touch of modern elegance to your interiors while neutral shades blend seamlessly into any space. Patterned rugs with vibrant colours are more playful and are a great way to inject personality into your house. Explore our collection of styles and find the perfect design for your room.
CARING FOR YOUR RUG
When it comes to caring for your rugs, it’s important to remember that every style is different. Ultimately, this means you should only follow the specific care instructions that are recommended for your special piece. However, it's important to remember that regular vacuuming will ensure that your rugs remain in a good condition in between cleans. It also may be worth investing in a rug underlay, which prevents slipping on the floor and helps to protect the fibres.
GET INSPIRED - BENEATH YOUR FEET
Rugs are a fantastic way to add color and texture and they really give a room some flair.
Texture is key - keep an eye out for mixed materials. To turn up the luxury, look for dark colours and a heavier, richer feel. Wool yarns and neutral tones create a simple but stylish effect.
Enjoy the softness and texture of rugs that come in a range of sizes and colours. A unique blend of differntly toned strands gives a rug a deep, sumptuous look. Go for honest natural shades or for deeper, more sophisticated tones. All our rugs are handmade to highest standards.
