If you weren’t missing summer enough already, these gorgeous designer rugs by Urban Road and Emma Blomfield of Nest Designs, will make you incredibly envious of anyone currently enjoying the summer months (I’m talking to you, Jen!).
Urban Road are an Australian brand known for their original canvas art prints and cushions. The Emma Blomfield x Urban Road Designer Rug Collection is their first foray into art for your floor, collaborating with interior stylist Emma, who is passionate about making stylish interiors affordable.
Inspired by the cool, salty ocean breeze of a coastal Australian summer with a Palm Springs Californian twist, the collection is full of summery colours, tones and textures. With nine to choose from, there’s a rug to suit every home, with each rug telling its own unique story. “We wanted the range to be bold and bright with a sense of fun thrown in for good measure,” explains Emma. “After all, a rug is really a piece of artwork for your floor and each of the rugs in this collection tells its own artistic story.”
Made from a low pile, acrylic-based Chenille, using fade resistant, eco-friendly inks, the reverse of the rug features a dotted non-woven backing with anti-slip dots to keep the rug in place. Clever!
Measuring 2m x 3m, the rugs retail for $749 and will be officially launched to the trade in Melbourne at Life Instyle next week. The public can pre-order them from 4 August on the Urban Road website, making them the perfect accessory to add colour, scale and character to your space as we head into spring.
