For the Modernist: If modern design speaks to you, a simple striped design and a bold colour rug will reflect your love of clean lines. Not only does a striped rug offer a classic and timeless choice, but it can also create an illusion of space and make a room appear larger. Our two favourite new striped rugs are the Eaton and Lille, both offered in various sizes.

Launched initially as a wallpaper in the 2010s, the Eaton print is now on an indoor rug that is hand tufted in a wool and viscose combination with some delicate carving lines.

For the Traditionalist: New Traditionalists know a classic design when they see it. When it comes to a traditional rug, look for a timeless design that can mix with other design elements in the room. Choose something in a muted colour palette to keep things classic and add elegance and sophistication to your space.

add lustre to the tone-on-tone print.

Mari features a large-scale bamboo leaf and branch motif. The pattern of this rug is hand-shaved and carved in postproduction, which gives it a true handmade look.

Once you’ve decided which rug personality you are, here are our simple tips to help you find the right rug for every room in your house:

  1. Consider the size of your space: Most people choose a rug that is too small, which can make a room feel disjointed. Measure the area you want to cover and select a rug that anchors the furniture.  
  2. Consider shapes: You will want to choose a rug that complements the room’s shape. For example, round rugs work well in circular rooms, while rectangular rugs are ideal for larger spaces. 
  3. Consider style: A simple, solid-coloured rug may be best if you have a minimalist or modern aesthetic. For more traditional spaces, consider a rug with intricate patterns or designs.
  4. Consider colours: If you have bold, bright walls, a neutral rug can balance the look, while a patterned rug can add interest to a neutral space. 
  5. Consider the material of your rug: If you have children or pets, a durable and stain-resistant material like wool or synthetic fibres may be best. Indoor/outdoor rugs are great for high-traffic areas
