Rugs – why we love them, why we need them

A room without a rug is like a birthday cake without icing – not essential but mildly disappointing.

The addition of a rug instantly transforms a bare room into one that is well thought through. Interior design is all about instilling emotion and that is why rugs are so important – immediately and subconsciously we feel more at home and relaxed when a rug is present in a room. It creates a softer, warmer and more welcoming interior that would otherwise feel (in most, but not all, cases) stark and perhaps a little unfriendly.

So without further ado, we present some of our most loved rugs in the Tangram collection which are sure to transform any space.

It comes as no surprise that these exquisite rugs are a favourite amongst our clients and the Tangram team. Yes, they are expensive, but rightly so. Using the finest materials such as wool from Tibetan highlands, fine Chinese silk and nettle yarn, each rug is handcrafted to absolute perfection. Inspired by the landscapes and colours of Africa, each rug tells a story which adds to their outstanding beauty. Poetic in design Legends of Carpets are considered a treasure to be passed down from generation to generation.
