Liven up any space with Oriental rugs


There are rugs, and then there are Oriental rugs. Ornate design and handwoven craftsmanship set an authentic Oriental rug apart from the rest. They are timeless, and will stay with you as a forever piece wherever you live.

Styling your Oriental rug


So you’ve found your dream rug. The pattern is beautiful, the colours are popping. But how to style it? Well, don’t fret. An Oriental rug is surprisingly versatile and can fit all sorts of tastes.

If you prefer a pared down, blended aesthetic, keep the style in the rest of the room neutral and classic. Opt for earthy tones and wood or keep it monochromatic, keeping small bursts of colour for accessories like lampshades and cushions. The easiest way to integrate an Oriental rug is to use the rug’s key colours in the rest of the scheme. Pick one or two of your favourite shades from the rug’s elaborate design and seek out pieces to match.

Oriental rugs carry a history of craftsmanship with them, and you may want to make the rug the theme of the room. If you find a beautiful handmade Chinese rug, don’t stop there. Why not incorporate a stunning Chinese cabinet or antique Chinese vase?

Blending isn’t for everyone, though. If you want to make more of a statement with your space, it’s time to embrace the clash. Sometimes more is more, and choosing furniture with a pattern or a bright colour can give a room much needed personality. To avoid overwhelm, keep some more plain pieces. But don’t be afraid to try out a bright pink armchair against a red rug, or mix and match finely patterned pieces.
