It’s been a while between rug round-ups here which is a shame really because, like any great accessory, a stylish rug does much to complete a room. From scalloped jute to restored vintage Persian iterations, here’s our pick of the latest and most fabulous rugs to hit the market.
Pampa: Byron Bay based brand Pampa’s latest collection ‘Eclipse’ is inspired by the Bauhaus art movement while paying homage to the universal symbols of the sun and moon. Produced ethically and sustainably, by skilled Argentinean tradespeople, when purchasing a Pampa rug you plant five trees via the charity One Tree Planted. Launching 22 August 2021.
Armadillo: Embodying the brand’s philosophy of slow design, this latest series of rugs is handcrafted from natural and sustainable materials. The opposite of trend-driven, these new styles (Odessa, Pompeii and Aspen) are stylish, understated and timeless. From $1,360.
The Rug Company Alexander McQueen collection: Titled Metamorphosis, The Rug Company’s latest Alexander McQueen collection features five statement designs inspired by nature – there’s everything from butterflies to beetles, birds and trees. These rugs are not for wallflowers. From $7590.84.
Tigmi Trading: The latest rugs from Tigmi Trading are a rather gorgeous bunch spanning vintage Moroccan, Scandinavian, Turkish and jute designs. We love the Cappelen Dimyr designs (out of Copenhagen and Stockholm) and the fresh take on the round jute rug – the scalloped edging is just so fun. From $899.
Tribe Home: A collection of overdyed vintage Persian rugs from Iran, these gorgeous rugs are restored using sustainable practices. Helping to preserve traditional rugs for future generations, while taking part in the recycling movement, one rug can cross hundreds of hands and multiple decades before finding its home, making it all the more special.
TSAR Carpets Tæpper Collection: Designed by interior designer Michelle Macarounas of Infinite Design Studio, this series of hand-tufted rugs references mid-century modernism and Scandinavian design. “The goal was to create stylish area rugs that felt more like pieces of art and infuse an eclectic sensibility to any interior space,” says Michelle Macarounas. We love!
