Colour and Texture

The first thing most people notice when they come into the shop are the rugs on the floor. We love textiles, and rugs in particular have a way of transforming a space, giving it warmth and character. We think of them as functional art. We’ve managed to source some beautiful kilims, many in smaller sizes that are perfect for tight spaces: entryways, at the foot of a bed, in a small den. They even work as wall hangings or as runners on a console table, cabinet or bench – basically anywhere you want colour and texture! (And what’s a kilim, anyway, you might ask? In short, it’s a handwoven, flat weave rug or tapestry. Ours come mostly from Iran or Afghanistan). Below is a selection of what we’ve just brought it, and there’s more in the shop!
