Rug Love




I have been obsessed with this Matthew Williamson rug from The Rug Company for a little while. I would love one of these for our new house but I think it will definitely be way out of our price range. The colours used are divine and I just love the pattern. Doesn't it look beautiful with that pink sofa and I especially like it placed on the white painted timber floors!

Hi Ana
My couch is the same color. Nice hot pink and I love it. I have a nice oriental rug with pastel colors right now, but this one would be fabulous.

This is definitely you, Anna. The rug has an Art Deco feel to it, don't you think?

Karena said...

Anna, this rug is so beautiful, it is a work of art!!

Liz said...

hi I also love the saturated colors contribute to the revival houses and I love the color pink czczególnie when combined with each other on the carpet as I greet you cordially to the Polish interior designer ((:

It is indeed a beautiful rug.
I would love to have one myself but our dog thinks it her toilet.
I hope for you that you can buy this rug.
You could see it as an investment.
Have a nice day

That's really fantastic! Looks like a traditional Native American rug with a modern touch of different colours. Another lovely choice.

Why not paint a design on canvas floor cloth?

This is such a beautiful rug, and the colour use is so vibrant!
It immediately reminds me if the Ndebele tribe here in South Africa. The woman use this type of pattern to adorn their huts and the walls surrounding their homes. The walls are always white, with very bright geometric patterns. I am sure that Matthew Williamson must have been inspired by these woman!

Gorgeous rug, and what a room!

the pattern reminds me of moorcroft pottery.

Fiona said...

I would look at that rug and think that I like the colors, but not the design, but in the context of the room, it looks great.

daninotes said...

The rug is beautiful...but I am in LOVE with the sofa!!!!

Thank you for sharing this inspiring photo. Even though I probably could not afford it - it inspires me towards bolder things. The photography is superb.

The Norwegian said...

Very wonderful image but what REALLY makes it for me is the bittersweet lampshade! Just that touch of tangy color puts a little edge to all the sweeter shades of color.

Great rug, beautiful color combination and strong pattern. It looks like Williamson has drawn inspiration from the Ndebele tribe (S Africa). Over generations the women of the Ndebele have created stunning colourful art. I am lucky to own a painting by Franzina Ndimande. I can recommend the book Margaret Courtney Clark on Ndebele art.

Rug love but also sofa love. I'd die for a pink sofa but not sure my boyfriend would agree.

There is nothing I love more than whitewashed timber floors. I know some people probably think it's an awful shame to paint over all that beautiful wood, but I say what a shame to waste what could prove to be the most fabulous canvas in your home? I love the fuschia sofa - I have a trench coat from Mango in the exact same shade!↲Xox Andrea ↲andreareh.blogspot.com

Very fond of the rug company and have specified their rugs for many clients. their catalogs and photography are stunning. this rug is such a design statement!

That rug is incredible! I love all the colors and the pairing with the pink sofa. Tres bien!

Nikki said...

Love this carpet! fabulous!

Interiorexpress said...

has kind of an aztec feel to it. too much "movement" for me, i'm more of a minimalist.

Hayley said...

The most beautiful rug ever!

domesticated_desk said...

i enjoy matthew williamson and the rug company, what a great combination and burst of color for spring!

Classic Style in City said...

I just LOVE the pink sofa :)

All_things_pretty said...

That rug is definately inspired by the Ndebele people of South Africa. Everything of theirs, including the exterior of their houses, has the bright pattern. You would definately get that far cheaper in SA if you come here on holiday.

Wonderful blog.
