Why have just one rug when you could have two?
One of our all time favourite things to do here at The London Rug Company is to layer rugs. It’s modern, it’s eye catching and we are so here for it!
One of the most used rugs in Layering is a jute rug, using a jute rug below a bold patterned rug can create a sense of balance- the neutral base colour mixed with the bold colours gives off a stunning, eye catching effect. Layering a rug in your living room area can create a warm cosiness in the winter months, it can really give a lived in feeling.
The great thing about layering is it breaks the rules, it’s different and if you didn’t get the memo, we love different- although we know this can be quite scary going against the usual one rug per room, shaking it up can give the room a new lease of life. There is something very beautiful about two rugs that are completely dissimilar just working a room together. Circles on top of stripes. Stripes on top of Moroccan or Moroccan on top of jute.. the options are endless.
Our all time favourite is faux fur or faux cow hide teamed with a neutral Jute or a large cream rug with a beautiful oriental or traditional over the top to make the room pop.
If you do dare to follow this trend we would love to see how you paired your rugs and how it looks in your home so be sure to send your pictures into us
