Throw out the pastel pinks and light blues. 2017 is all about warmth and classic tones. You might hear the odd “green is in” mantra also being tossed around, but we’re loving the bronze trend for this year.
It perfectly complements a few other upcoming trends that are making waves. And it has its own splash of sparkle. You’ll find it in decorative kitchen bowls, room lamps with quirky lighting, floaty silks and sensual sheers - creating a soft, romantic, and more content decorative space.
A rug is more than just a floor cover. It gives your room a different perspective. Rugs can also offer the creative motivation that you require to customize your living spaces. Therefore, choosing a rug is more than just going to the store and grabbing any that you set your eyes on. It is a reflection of both your lifestyle and personality.
Flat weave rugs are popular in Australia. Why? They're durable, withstand harsh climates, cost effective, easy to pack up and move around, and perhaps most importantly - the construction method used when making flat weave rugs allows for some truly interesting design.
Runner rugs are an entirely different type of rug that you may be used to - and are very rarely designed to be the centerpiece of a loungeroom floor, but moreso made to fit perfectly in a hallway.
The standard size for a runner rug is 80cm. Unfortunately there's no too much variation in the width, but they do come in different lengths such as 300x80cm, 400x80cm, and in some collections, 500x80cm.
Buying rugs online isn't always easy. You need to have confidence in the colour, quality, material, design and also perhaps the most important of all - the sizing. We try to provide as many images of our rugs as possible to help with this decision prior to purchase, but there's still some margin for error.
Today we'll be focusing on shag rugs, the different kinds, a few of the collections we have on offer and their differences, and how best to decide which is right for you.
