Dining tables designed for compact living | Vinterior

In the increasingly dense urban environments, our living spaces continue to shrink. Pressured to downsize, we find ourselves compromising on the functionalities and comfort of our homes. Nowadays, few of us enjoy the luxury of having a separate dining room, and what’s even worse is the fact that, in the newly built households, the dining space turns out to be one of the first to get sacrificed. But the good news is that no matter how limited your space may be, with some thought, it’s always possible to make room for a functional dining table and a couple of chairs.

An antique or vintage rug can be a big investment (although you may be surprised to learn that they can be more cost effective than opting for a new model!) and many lack confidence to care for such a statement piece.

Discovering vintage rugs from lands afar

Furniture may be the bread and butter of most interiors but a well-placed rug will have a surprisingly significant impact on the feel of a room. A colourful rug will lend a welcome dose of pattern and panache to a more neutral space. By contrast, calm down a busy decor scheme with a more simple model. A room full of similar tones, across furniture and the wider decor, can benefit from a rug which helps to break up the space. Recent years have seen a rise in popularity of the iconic monochromatic Beni Ourain rug, although none can deny the timelessness of the world celebrated and richly coloured Persian rug tradition. Fortunately, the Vinterior collection encompasses a vast array of vintage rugs, from traditional to textured, patterned to plain.
