Rug Styling Guide
Rugs, cowhides, sheepskins, cushions and ottomans can be used to complement your existing décor or as the foundation from which to draw inspiration for the entire room. You may choose one piece as the center point of your home or use rugs of different styles and materials throughout to create a flow of movement from one area to the next.
Area rugs can be used to define space in a room. Large rugs are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to wall-to-wall carpeting for creating moveable living spaces that are easy to update, especially in open plan living. Most popular in living rooms and bedrooms, this size can be used as a statement piece or neutral base to create a décor island while maintaining a sense of openness and space.
Smaller rugs can be used on their own as an accent piece in space conscious settings, or you can layer multiple rugs together to create a warm and homely environment. We recommend achieving the layered look with rugs of a similar palette, with varying textures and materials to create interest and appeal. This works especially well when incorporating non-traditional floor coverings such as cowhides and sheepskins.

Generally, most rugs will fall into the following styles: traditional, transitional, modern or contemporary.
Traditional rugs are faithful reproductions of genuine hand knotted pieces. They are perfect for a classic setting, or you can use them to add old-world charm to modern décor.
Transitional rugs will work in both classic and modern settings, and often feature unique finishes like a vintage wash look to recreate the style of a hand knotted piece at an affordable price. They will usually feature a colour palette that aligns with today’s fashion trends.
Modern rugs are a broad category, from delicate neutrals to bright geometric patterns. This style features every size, texture and material you can think of! You can style a modern rug with décor of a similar style.
Contemporary rugs are ultra-modern, with bold patterns and modern production techniques creating a stylish product that is best suited for fashion forward customers looking for a statement piece. A block colour rug can also be considered a contemporary style, when the materials create interest by incorporating modern fibres such as art-silk to create subtle variations for a minimalist look.
