For some, a rug is a functional item to warm the floors, cover a stain or delineate a space. For others it’s an afterthought; a nice-to-have-but-not-necessary addition to a room. For others still, a rug is a statement; a bold declaration about style and aesthetic. It might be the special piece that an entire room is designed around or a find so beautiful it’s a guaranteed conversation starter. And for these people, there’s The Rug Company. With handmade designs from world-renowned designers like Vivienne Westwood and Diane Von Furstenberg, these fabulous rugs take rugs to a whole new level. And they’re super-exclusive, too, with stores in a handful of cities worldwide: London, New York, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Madrid, Moscow, Brussels, Copenhagen, Mexico, Oslo, Stockholm and Hong Kong. I can’t think of any better reason to hop on a plane to say, Barcelona, to check these beauties out.

I love beautiful wood floors in dark, rich tones. The older, the better. They can evoke a feeling of nostalgia and hold a history of homeowners past. But sometimes, even the most beautiful of floors need a rug to serve any number of purposes; delineating separate spaces, adding warmth underfoot or simply adding a burst of colour and personality to a conservative space. I love these contemporary patterns from Angela Adams. They’re bold but not brash and can add a touch of whimsy to a living room or bedroom. They’re 152×243 in size.
