Sometimes adding small decorative pieces or re-styling your coffee table just isn’t quite enough to freshen up the look of a room or bring a scheme together. In this instance we like to bring in a statement piece that will see you through the seasons and will act as an anchor for your room. 

A generous rug is a great example of this kind of anchor piece and we’ve designed three rugs for Autumn/Winter that do this job perfectly. 

The first is our Rhombus rug which is woven from a mix of wool and jute to give a natural look that still feels soft underfoot. Available in three sizes up to 250 x 300cm, this rug works particularly well as an area rug in a sitting room or bedroom. The geometric design is a pared back take on a printed textile Birdie noticed in Rajasthan. The simplicity of the shapes makes this rug easy to style in almost any setting and it ties in well with both traditional and contemporary interior schemes. 

Rhombus Geometric Rug

To style this rug in a sitting room make sure that you pick a size that will sit halfway underneath all of the pieces of furniture at the edge of the room. Then choose from pink, blue or green to suit your colour palette. If your colours seem a bit disparate, add a few extra pieces in your key colour - a pair of cushions, a vase and a lamp base would work well for example. 

If your space calls for something a little more rustic then our jute Ghapla rug could be the perfect solution. These timeless rugs are made from individual squares of woven jute which are stitched together to create a patchwork effect. These versatile rugs work particularly well in hallways, kitchens and other hardworking spaces that need robust floor coverings. With four warm colours to choose from (including a natural, un-dyed option) this rug is a failsafe choice for any interior. We love styling these rugs underneath tables in hallways or dining spaces and they’re a great way to add warmth to rooms with stone or wooden floors.

For a bedroom that has too much of a Summer feel, we can’t recommend our luxurious Sheepswool rugs highly enough to achieve that warm cosy look. These incredibly soft rugs are made from 100% natural sheep's wool and are the best thing to sink bare feet into first thing in the morning. Unlike sheepskins these rugs give you the best of both worlds with all of the comfort of fleece without the irregular shapes and limited sizes of skins. Choose from sizes ranging from 80 x 120cm up to 170 x 240cm to suit your space; whether next to the bed, at its foot or even downstairs underneath a coffee table.

Our final staple favourite is a multi functional pouffe or occasional table. We designed our brand new woven pouffes particularly with this versatility in mind. Handmade in wool, these sturdy pieces can be used as additional seating or small tables and have a textural look that slots in just about anywhere. Add one to your sitting room as a fireside footrest or handy spot for the inevitable stack of newspapers and magazines. They really come into their own for unexpected guests and will be particularly handy over Christmas when there never seem to be enough places for people to sit! Why not pair one of these handy pouffes with a Ghapla rug in a coordinating shade?
