If you’re looking for a way to add colour, pattern and warmth to a room, as well as bring together an interior design scheme, then a rug is the perfect item of choice. Even better, is a pure wool rug, which will be nice and warm underfoot.
Frith Rugs recently got in touch and invited us to try one of their rugs and, as tribal and ethnic-style designs have been popular recently, we opted for the Royal Keshan design rug (RKE469).
The rug is machine made in Egypt, making it more affordable than a handmade or hand tufted rug, and it features a striking traditional design. They describe the colour family of the rug as being ‘rust’ and the picture on their website seems slightly faded and doesn’t do it justice, as in real life the colour is much warmer and richer.
The rug measures 6’3″ by 4’4″ (1.90m x 1.33m) so covers a good expanse of floor space, but other sizes are available too.
If you’ve been toying with the idea of incorporating some tribal and ethnic style designs into your home, a rug is a great way of doing so. This one has a very authentic feel to it and we like the range of patterns and detail – mostly geometric – included in the design.
If you haven’t come across Frith Rugs before, their website is well worth exploring. They stock a huge range of carpets and rugs and have a number of showrooms in the UK where you can check out the quality, designs and colours of rugs in person. If you’re happy buying online, they offer free delivery and, at the moment, there are some great sale offers, which make the prices even more affordable.
As well as the Royal Keshan range, which includes a number of different designs and colourways, Frith Rugs stock Pakistani, Indian, Chinese and Pesian/Afghan rugs, as well as some modern designs. A rug is a good way of incorporating traditional designs into a contemporary home, as well as adding an extra layer of protection and warmth to a hardwood or carpeted floor, and this one certainly seem lovely and soft to walk on.
