Quality rugs delivered direct to your door
The right rug can transform a room’s look and feel, but with so many materials, patterns, sizes and styles available, it’s not always a straightforward choice. The obvious starting point is location: you’ll want and need very different things from living room rugs and a bedroom rug, for example. Then think what the rug’s purpose is: are you looking to add warmth and comfort, make a style statement, create the illusion that the room is larger or smaller than it really is, separate the room into zones or tie everything together. You also need to consider practical matters like the amount of foot traffic your new rug will have to withstand, how likely it is to have things dropped or spilled on it, how much time and effort do you want to spend keeping it clean, and so on.
All these factors will help you determine the appropriate size, colour, style and material for your new rug. Wool rugs are hardwearing and warm but can be vulnerable to staining (red wine and coffee are particular hazards). Rugs made from wool mixed with man-made fibres such as nylon are easier to keep clean, so they’re good for high-traffic areas, but may not be quite so durable. As with most things in life, you generally get what you pay for with rugs, and we always recommend seeing a feature rug as an investment and buying the best you can afford. We make that easy since we deal only with leading manufacturers like Louis de Poortere (a world-renowned Flemish design house founded in 1859) and famous British names including Sanderson, Brink & Campman, Ted Baker and Wedgwood. Our vast range of sizes, colours and styles means we have whatever you need, whether you’re looking for luxury rugs for a bedroom, modern and multicoloured rugs for living rooms, and practical, durable rugs for hallways and other high-traffic spaces.
Design & type
Shaggy rugs are best suited to bedrooms, living rooms and other rooms where you'll be walking without shoes; we don't generally recommend them for hallways and high-traffic areas, where constant footfall will flatten the pile over time.
A textured rug is a simple, effective way to give your room a richer, more ‘layered’ feel. If your overall décor is neutral and minimalist, a hand-tufted textured rug adds visual interest and warmth
Rugs in a single, solid colour can be far more visually dramatic and stylish than the term ‘plain’ implies. You can use a plain rug in all kinds of imaginative ways to create contrast and atmosphere and influence how a room looks, feels and ‘flows’.
The term ‘modern rug’ covers a huge span of colours, designs, textures and ideas. What they share is a rejection of florals, paisleys, stripes and other traditional patterns, in favour of bold geometric shapes, innovative use of colour and a more open, informal and ‘artistic’ style.
Abstract rugs add a real pop of visual interest and contrast to a room. They can be formal or playful, monochrome or multicoloured, restrained or riotous – and whatever your particular penchant, we have an abstract rug to suit.
Patterned rugs are incredibly versatile, allowing you to create a multitude of different effects in any room in your home; they’re especially useful in high-traffic areas, where they can help to hide day-to-day wear and dirt.
Bordered rugs make strong style statements with a clean, sharp, ‘finished’ look that works well in today’s cool, minimal spaces.
A striped rug is a good option for a hallway, as it draws the eye inwards; stripes are also very forgiving in high-traffic areas, where they hide everyday scuff and marks.
