Rugs and carpets, the result of meticulous craftsmanship – Persian, Berber, wool, cotton, or natural fibres – offer so many outstanding ways to decorate your home. Whether they are travel souvenirs or decorative favourites, carpets are interwoven with history by their traditional manufacturing methods, the choice of symbolic colours and other cultural motifs that they convey. A rug is a nomadic object that can be moved easily from one room to another. In this new article, The Socialite Family suggests 6 ways for you to use a rug in your home. In the home of Ingrid Seynhaeve, the rug finds a place in a corridor and breaks up the monotony of a passageway in everyday use, somewhere often missed out of our decorative schemes. In the Boillot family home, it becomes a play area and helps create a kid-friendly interior by offering a softly textured surface for your little ones to land on safely if they fall. Have a look at Michaël Azoulay’s home, where the rug takes pride of place on the bed and completes the look of the bedroom. For Clarisse Prudent, this is an accessory worth extracting from its traditional place in the living room to warm up the chill of a tiled bathroom floor. With its myriad of colours and variety of shapes and sizes (round – rectangular or long), a rug, like our Luna model, can also help to define individual spaces within the same room. For example, in the case of an open kitchen or a two-in-one living and dining room. Finally, in its most beautiful graphic versions, the rug can also become a surprising decorative feature… on your walls! You need only to take inspiration from the home of Chrysoline de Gastines or our shop at 12, Rue Saint-Fiacre (Paris 2nd arrondissement) to convince yourself of this. Our Roma rug, with its colourful 70s look, has made a strong impression there as a wall hanging. Yes, you’ve got the idea. From the bathroom to the bedroom and the hallway: the rug has become a must-have item, as functional as it is decorative, in a smart and stylish interior.
