Choosing the right rug for your home
For Lifestyle Furniture the right rug adds the finished layer, but first, it must be well considered in design, colour, texture and size. Layering of furnishings is a must in any interior giving a room life and personality. Rugs do just that, they complete a room, adding interest, softness whilst grounding a space and zoning. The style of rug should also connect with the rest of the room, in a neutral colour or similar shades and patterns to present a cohesive interaction from soft furnishings to accessories.
As our Australian climate and relaxed lifestyle demand a rug that goes from cold winters to sweltering hot summer nights without change, our go to for the every day, is Weave Rugs. Made from a combination of mixed blends; New Zealand wool, cotton, jute and or viscose, each rug is unique from a hand made construction. A strong cotton backing and edging is applied for longevity for everyday wear.
