Not just for floors…

Posted on June 01 2015

Continuing with the rugs theme today, what with our gorgeous new range I’ve definitely got them on the brain. In this morning’s post I sat down with Jo the founder of Maroc Tribal and picked her brains on everything to do with the Moroccan rugs look. But being such a total rug addict I have to admit that in my pad I don’t always just stick to using them on floors…

Here are my top 4 other ways to decorate with them. Purely selfish, so I can justify having even more!

1. Use them like upholstery

I’ve seen rugs upholstered over ottomans; the backs of chairs, cushions even and they work a treat. Obviously thinner ones are easier to work with, like cotton weaves or killims. It’s a fab shortcut to pulling off a wonderfully exotic, tribal-esque vibe! I took it to extremes with the Wild Bill sofa I designed for our own-range – he’s a rad little loveseat completely covered in the plushest woollen rug upholstery. Love!

2. Drape over chairs

I do this a lot with my sheepskins and small rag rugs. They’re perfect for softening hard plastic chairs or even my concrete one. It’s layering at it’s best I say!

3. Hang from the wall

I’ve done this in my hallway and that is hang a large supersize rug against the wall so its actually looks like a piece of art. Cool no?

4. Fake it with runners

A super inexpensive way of decorating with rugs is to plump for runners and then flank them either side of the bed. This is a trick I use all the time if I can’t find a rug large enough to fill a space, or if the giant option is too pricey. Pretty darn cool I reckon!
