The delicious textures and delightful colors of the Park Throw make it an inviting accent for any room. Variegated yarn is hand-woven in a popcorn-like stitch, giving this throw its distinctive texture and coloration. It’s finished with a long hand-knotted fringe.
See beyond the horizon. Reminiscent of the serenity found in the striations of clouds drifting across the sky, this contemporary design wows. The abstract design offers texture with high to low tufting for a plush feel underfoot.
Two classic pattern mixing practices are to coordinate prints & stripes and prints & textured solids.
Choose colors from your pattern that are also in the stripes or textures for a cohesive combo. To pair with our best-selling Acacia rug, we recommend subtly-textured Sampler Stripe or, for a brighter coordinate, bold Gemstones. Easy peasy!
Sometimes you want one focal point to stand out. In that case, pair your statement rug with a coordinating solid. Our solid Crackle rugs add a just the right pop to an open floor plan without adding more pattern.
This season, we’re focused on answering the top design questions we get asked. One of our most-requested topics is how do I choose rugs for an open-concept space?
To create a design flow in an open space, select a statement rug to take center-stage. Then style adjacent rooms with coordinating solids for a cohesive feel.
For those who love lots of pattern, texture and color, choose from our most popular rugs for a dramatic statement. The textures of vibrant Jubilee and Bon Bons are pure pedi-joy so no need for a foot massage.
Our solid Crackle rugs add just the right pop to an open floor plan without more pattern. They come in a variety of hues, making them easy to pair with your favorite designs.
If you’re not afraid of color, our Confetti and Color Code rugs are the perfect complement for accent areas.
With all the hues in our bright assortment, selecting upholstery fabrics to complete the space is a snap!
The namesake of New York’s famed flower market, our new Chelsea rug is a welcome breath of spring-time inspiration as snow continues to blanket much of the country. This botanical beauty was a blast to design, and the process anything but traditional. The first step was to collect the floral specimens and greens from which to build a diverse and vivid color story.
We then “placed” these spiked blooms and leaves on our canvas, and moved them over and over again until we struck the right balance of height, color and texture. This created the inspiration to be shared with our rug craftsmen. We combined various yarn textures with several tufting techniques, creating visual delight.
The final version of the Chelsea rug features a strong statement of navy and burgundy, two of this season’s most on-trend colors. And like the sidewalks of New York’s flower district, a textural and tweedy background of un-dyed wool pops the saturated colors of flowers bringing spring indoors a little early this year.
The visual texture created by leaves on the forest’s floor inspired our Hickory rug design. We love the way that nature organically creates its own design philosophy each season.
We recreated nature’s seemingly haphazard surface texture using mottled wool yarns of varying thicknesses in a hand-tufted loop pile construction. Naturally neutral tones highlight our Hickory rug, the star of our “weekender” collection.
Nature got the design off on the right foot, but we finished strong using on-trend hues of toffee, platinum, and pewter…perfect to compliment a variety of room styles.
How do you determine the correct size rug for your space? It is not an exact science. The type of room and furniture placement should factor into your decision. We suggest leaving an equal amount of flooring exposed on all sides of the room. The first step is always to measure the space using a tape measure. One of the most common mistakes is to rely on a visual or ‘eyeball’ the space. A 6×9 rug can look very differently hanging on a rack. To make it easy, use our room planner!
Dining & Breakfast Room:
When selecting a room size rug for the dining room, you need to measure the length and width of your table. Don’t forget to include the table leaf if you use it frequently.
A good rule of thumb is to allow at least 24″ to 30″ of rug beyond the table on each side to allow chairs to move in and out, ensuring the chair is still placed on the rug when seated. For visual interest, a round rug is a great choice beneath either a round or square table. Use the guide below to determine the best size rug for your dining room.
If you need a larger rug, custom sizes are available – contact us for more details.
Living or Family Room:
When selecting a room size rug, allow 12″ to 18″ of floor as a border around the rug; however in small rooms, you can leave less floor showing. In a very large or open room, you may want to consider using two different, but related rugs, to anchor each seating area.
Your rug should anchor your furniture, use the guide below for options. If you prefer, furniture legs may be placed on or off the rug.
Make sure to account for any heating vents or doorways.
Depending on the usage of the room, you may want to consider traffic patterns.
An 8×10 rug brings together most furniture groupings nicely. If you need a larger rug, custom sizes are available – contact us for details.
When selecting a room size rug for the bedroom, it’s always nice to start your day with a step or two on our rugs. Use the guide below to determine the best options based on the room layout and your needs.
If you have twin beds in the same room, a 3×5 rug or runner between the beds is always a great choice.
This is the perfect place to play around with rug sizes-try a round rug or a rectangular rug placed at a diagonal underneath the bed. If you need a larger rug, custom sizes are available – contact us for more details.
Make sure the door can open and close over the rug. Consider the thickness or pile height of the rug.
If it’s a long hallway, you can also consider using two 8 ft runners.
