Keeping your Carpet Clean – The Why’s

Now that you have bought THE carpet you have always wanted (very likely an exclusive from Rugberry) and you are thrilled with the way it looks on your living room floor, you can sit back and admire it, yes. But don’t forget, as with all furnishings and linen in your home, carpets also need to be cleaned regularly. If you want yours to continue looking as good as it does now, make sure you get it cleaned on a regular basis. Here are a few more reasons why you shouldn’t leave getting your precious carpet cleaned to a vague “Whenever I can find the time”.

  • With dust settling every day on them, carpets tend to lose their sheen. The newness tends to wane over time. A thorough cleaning will set that right, keeping them looking as good as new. How often you decide to go in for a cleaning will depend on the traffic in the area and the amount of dust and dirt it attracts. A home with children or pets is going to need its carpets cleaned more often than one with adults alone. A good thumb rule would be, do it before it gets too dirty, not after. 
  • Food stains and spills attract, not just bacteria, which they do of course, but also insects and bugs which could damage the weave if they are not dealt with immediately. Stains are easiest to remove if cleaned as soon as they happen. 
  • Regular cleaning minimizes allergens such as dust mites and dander in the air, thus improving air quality and health all around. This is especially important if there are small children or elderly people around. Also those prone to hay fever or asthma. 
  • Last but not the least, a carpet from Rugberry is an investment for life, one that needs to be protected like any other investment. Regular and timely cleaning as per the prescribed manner ensures just that.  

So years, if not decades, from now, your carpet will look as good as it does now. A testimony to your good taste and a part of all the happy times you and your family will share in years to come.

The Art on your floors

Think of your floor as the fifth wall and all the possibilities that you have

Have you ever wondered what art does for your home? Whether it’s a Van Gogh print- a reflection of your love for starry skies, a street side sketch from a flea market in Paris a little symbol of the wanderer in your or a patchwork, embroidered wall hanging from Janpath , a riot of colour splashed across your wall  like the swish of a Rajasthani lehenga glimpsed in an otherwise bare desert, they’re all a window to the soul. The difference lies in what you see when you peer through it.

The Persian Connection

The Persian Connection - Rugberry Care

A Persian carpet is symbolic of magnificent artistry and skill, nurtured for more than 2500 years. Iran- the home to the initial oriental carpet is the genesis of most motifs, patterns and traditional colorations produced in rugs throughout the world today. From being an intrinsic part of Iranian culture and its people’s daily lives the Persian carpet has risen to become a treasured heirloom, known for its unique designs, skilled weave and cultural significance.

While tracing the history of the Persian carpet, we’re following the cultural development of the Iranian Empire. We see how Iran attained artistic excellence under the Safavid Dynasty (1502-1736), court weaving, together with the arts of calligraphy, miniature painting, and tile work, flourished like never before. The carpet progressed from being used to fulfil a simple need to becoming a sign of wealth, adornment and beauty, which is what it is today as well. Continue reading

Going back in time

While historians are still uncertain about the actual origin of carpets, they can say with certainty that that people used hand knotted rugs to cover the floors and protect themselves from the elements, as far back as 7000 BC (the Neolithic age). It’s rather mind numbing when you realize how 9000 years later, we’re still using carpets to bring a feeling of warmth into our homes. Spectacular isn’t it? A carpet is ingrained with so much culture and tradition, things that usually get ignored while you’re out picking one. It’s about time we take a minute to recognize their beauty, richness, and the uncertain story that lies behind each knot.

Colour of the year: Radiant Orchid - Rugberry

‘’Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.’’ www.pantone.com

That’s right, the colour of the year was declared a little over a month ago, and while a lot of you might be wondering how this is even remotely concerned with picking out a carpet for your living room, let’s talk about how the trending colour of the year is vital to interiors. Last year was the year for growth and prosperity with emerald green becoming the most covetable colour of the year. While emerald is a perfectly lovely hue, it lacks the multi-faceted personality held by this particular shade of lilac. Radiant Orchid has the power to spark the imagination, intrigue and invite all in one. It is also known to extend the feeling of joy and well being. As pantone.com says- “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.
