Today's home décor marketplace is dominated by the trending colours, which can make it hard when you want to add a little creativity of your own. We see the accent colour trends change from duck egg blue to ochre yellows to dusky pinks, which are generally seated on a bed of greys, beige or taupe.
While it can appear easier mixing and matching décor when it comes to furnishings like cushions and curtains, it’s another story altogether when following the theme to your floor. Today’s carpet colours are frankly, very boring, and while wood floors look very elegant, they rarely offer the pizzazz of colour that a room sometimes needs.
So to give the room some colouration you have to rely on soft furnishing or wall colour. The problem with wall colour is it can sometimes be too “in your face” while the impractical soft furnishing trend of throwing piles of cushions on a sofa means you have trouble finding a place to sit.
Without a doubt, the most practical way of adding much-needed colour to a room is a rug. To be fair, there is a good range of colours in rugs if you are looking for yellows, blues, pinks, greys and beiges. But buying greens, red, purple, terracottas and your options are seriously limited. Your options become even more restricted when you want to combine various colours.
The sad fact is there is 1000’s colour variation available to rug manufactures, but they only tend to use what is trending at the time. So you have this perfect picture of your ideal rug in your head, surely someone must produce it.
At iwantarug.com we can turn that perfect picture in your head to reality. Sitting at this side of the fence I have the conversation time and time again with clients who have abandoned many of their options. It’s really nice to have the ability to rekindle those options and give the benefit of my experience.
One of our clients had a big square room in a typically pre-war house with Art Deco features and ordered two extremely large three seater sofas, one in royal blue the other in a mustard yellow. She wanted a large square rug in predominantly midnight blue and ochre yellow to subtly enhance the Art Deco feel. She chose our Art Deco panel design which worked well as a square with no modification. The rug as produced and delivered in 6 weeks from ordering.
The rug this client had made wasn’t that unusual, the colour combination of blue and yellows seem to fit the trends, but the combination of dark blue and yellow just wasn’t available in the size of the rug she requested.
At iwantarug.com, we have over 90 colours available in quality samples with a further 1300 variations. You can choose the colours that you want to see in the rug, you can tweak the design, you can even produce your own design. Furthermore, we produce a quality bespoke product that is priced similar to high street brands offering similar qualities.
Our rugs are handmade using 100% wool or a combination of wool and viscose. The factory in India has skilled artisans who will convert the design into a finished hand-tufted, jute backed rug. Our website has hundreds of design templates that allow you to colour and recolour in 90+ standard colour options. If there’s something you want to change colours or segments of the design, just email us and it will be done
