Rugs have to be one of my favourite things to buy for my home. To me a room doesn’t look finished until it has at least one rug in it. In my living room I went against the rule that says you shouldn’t place a rug over carpet, I love rugs so much I even hung one on my wall! Adding or replacing a rug is great way of giving your home a brand new look. They can also be used to zone areas within a room, if you have a large room or an awkward corner that you’re not sure how to style, consider adding a small rug – round rugs work particularly well in corners or alcoves.
Today I’m sharing what I think are the best places to buy beautiful rugs.
I have only discovered Edit 58 recently and am yet to buy one of their beautiful rugs (still deciding which one to go for – and saving hard!) They’re not cheap but they sure are unique and oh-so-beautiful! I think my favourite is this gorgeous Vintage Azilal rug which I think would be perfect for my bedroom!
Urban Outfitters have some of the most reasonably priced rugs I’ve found on the High Street. Starting from just £15 they have a great selection and some really quirky styles. They are very flat weaves so I find they’re more about decoration that coziness or comfort but definitely worth a look!
They have also just recently added a ‘one-of-a-kind’ range. Now these are far more expensive, but I just couldn’t resist including them!
Another recent discovery to me is La Redoute, I only found out that they sold homeware a short while ago and since then it has become of my favourite places to shop! They have a great selection of really well priced rugs, some of which resemble far more expensive designer versions!
If Turkish or Afghan Rugs are what you’re after then you definitely need to check out Yashar Bish. They sell authentic and beautiful Turkish, Persian and Afghan Oriental Rugs and Carpets, as well as hand-woven flat weave Kilims.
Marks and Spencer
I happen to sit right by the Product Team in Head Office at M&S and so get the chance to see what they’re working on way in advance of the products hitting the stores, and let me tell you – there are some beauties coming soon! In fact I think they always seem to get rugs right, here are a few of my current faves.
