So lately I’ve been getting a lot of requests for “cozy, comfy rugs.” Ever noticed that when you buy a new car, all of a sudden it seems everywhere on the road? Well, it’s kind of like that….. now I’m seeing all these bad ass “cozy, comfy rugs” all over the place. Yes, I mean badass.cozy.comfy.
Check this out, for one…..
We all know a true badass is the strong, silent type. He doesn’t need to draw attention to himself, you just feel his presence. These are the Chuck Norris and Jackie Chans of the rug world baby! Whether neutral or accented with color, their presence enlivens a room with warm and comfort underfoot.
Whether braided or woven, these (generally) natural fiber rugs provide the comfort and warmth of a favored winter sweater. Besides the comfort they bring your toes, they bring an essence of nature indoors.
The soft tones of the above Restoration Hardware rugs lend themselves to the warm and inviting, yet casual elegance found in European homes. The rugs pair easily with multiple fabrics and furnishings in the home, lending themselves well to multiple aesthetics.
For those who want to kick it up another notch, there are options available such as the West Elm rug pictured above done in a chevron pattern – a hot trend right now. Keeping the colors neutral will make this rug outlast the trend, adding classic longevity.
Cozy, comfy wool rugs can also incorporate the flavor of other cultures. The soft hues, as in the pattern above, create a sophistication in global and eclectic homes.
A perennial favorite is the silky shag, like my client Lauren’s above….. You can get these through yours truly for a wholesale deal (they are also available in abundance at your local furniture stores).
These rugs are just so darned yummy. They make toes happy. So kick off your shoes, relax, and squish your toes in their plushy goodness. You can just feel your blood pressure lower…
So, whether mixed with felted ribbon, like the West Elm rug pictured directly above…
or the pairing of this thick hand-knitted Masland rug constructed of New Zealand wool yarn and soft, silk yarn…
or these fun, delectable West Elm treats of recycled cotton jersey for your bathroom…
You just know these rugs don’t need to be anything other than what they are. They know it. You know it. That’s why they’re badass.cozy.comfy.
