The one item we believe EVERY living space should incorporate, regardless of scheme or style.
Rugs have evolved massively over the past 10 years in both style and design,
with new manufacturers coming through and consistently pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved.
To produce a rug isn’t the easiest of tasks. In some designs huge machinery is required to create the finished article, whilst in others, every singly thread is hand woven. This is usually reflected in the price.
Handwoven rugs are typically more expensive due to the time it takes and that no 2 items are the same. However as technology has advanced in every aspect of our day to day lives, so has the manufacture of rugs. Meaning you can now find Turkish quality at a fraction of the price, that ooze style and add that finishing piece to the interior puzzle.
At No18 Interiors we think rugs are great because:
-They define/segment a space-workings particularly well in open plan homes
-They are a great way to introduce colour into a space without painting walls or changing furniture
-Equally they are a great way to bring pattern into a space without wallpapering walls
-They add warmth to those hardwood/tiled floors
-They add additional style and depth to your space
A couple of Rug do’s & don’ts:
If you are purchasing a rug for your lounge, traditionally a rug should start from underneath the sofa and pull forward…therefore we recommend always sizing up
If you’re purchasing a rug to house a dining table and chairs. Ensure the rug size is big enough to surround the chairs parameter. No one wants a lost rug under a dining table.
