They warm up a room while adding a decorative touch: rugs are a surefire way to add colour and texture to any room. A graphic, modern rug is enough to create an entire world of its own, showcasing our furniture. An old and precious rug creates a theatrical feel which can be enhanced by a soft hue on the wall or a print on the curtains and home textiles. At The Socialite Family, we prefer Chinese silk carpets along with those dating back to the 18th century, known for their unique style. Your bedroom, for example, will be transformed into a colourful setting, steeped in history. Because a rug is one of the only decor details which can give real character to such an intimate place. Choose the details carefully and opt for an old rug – or even a damaged one. And what about Berber rugs too? They go with any type of flooring, even in the most contemporary apartments! Some prefer black and white graphic patterns, others opt for colours and irregular patterns. What’s clear is that any rug is an excuse to bring people together. So feel free to put one in your children’s bedroom to create a play area and another in the living room to bring people together somewhere other than the sofa. The magical thing about rugs? They’re available in any size. Long live layering! Rugs really are great. It’s not surprising that more and more designers are turning to rugs as a new form of expression.
