A beautifully proportioned rug can tie an entire room together, but it can be tricky to get the size and placement right. As a rule of thumb, a rug should be large enough to anchor your furniture whilst leaving some of the floor exposed. When in doubt, go for the biggest size possible – there’s nothing worse than an undersized rug! All our rugs are available in a range of standard sizes.
Don't be afraid of colour or pattern; choose a rug as you would a piece of art. Most of all, you must love the rug – unlike cushions, curtains or a sofa, it is something that should last forever so you must be happy to have it in any room or even a different house.
Before choosing a rug, you must first understand its purpose. Do you want a rug that will be a real statement piece, or a more neutral design which will blend seamlessly into the space, giving an overall tranquil appearance? Do you want it to unify a room or to define a space?
