I think all people should be careful when it comes to kids’ safety. For example I think it is better to have a thick rug in the kids room in order to protect them from the coldness of the floor, especially if you live in a place where the floor is in direct contact with a cold surface or the ground. Any way, the kids room should be colourful and full of life, just like the kids. So I think this Lusy Blom Kids Rug from IKEA is just perfect. First of all it has a very simple and colourful design that the children adore.
Rugs & Carpets
I will have to admit that rugs were never my strong point. It’s not like I don’t like them, because I do but probably because I have some prejudices regarding carpets. In my opinion a carpet should be used in places that are a little bit more intimate, because you can benefit from their warmth and the tingling sensation when you walk barefoot.For me a rug is a very personal thing not because means something but because I’m in a special emotional sequence when I walk on them.
The bedroom was the closest example I could get and the one with the most arguments. I love waking up in the morning before my girlfriends and go to the bathroom, wash up, etc. Then I’ll make a sandwich or a breakfast in bed and bring it to her, and then lay down holding her in my arms while watching TV. As you can probably tell I become another person that loves intimacy and warm snuggling places.
If you know a bit of history than you can’t help feeling sorry for the poor Native Americans because they were the ones suffering on their own land. Well, they are worth to be admired because they have preserved their traditions and values despite all odds. That is why i think it is a good thing to promote their style in such fields as rug manufacturing for example. They have been famous for making beautiful rugs that were embellished with amazing traditional Native American patterns that have been transmitted from generation to generation. This Vintage Navajo Style Runner is the perfect illustration and it is simply gorgeous.
This runner is flat and weaved by hand, decorated in a nice Navajo style design , looking great on the floor or on the wall. Even if this item is vintage, it is original and modern, too, as modernism intends to keep something of the old ages, making them show a different face. The beautiful combination of colours – red, black and white and a bit of grey every once in a while, makes you think that the Navajo people were first artists and then fighters. Any way , the runner is in excellent condition and can now be purchased for just $115 from High Street market.
The Belgium designer Charlotte Lancelot impressed us with embroidered rugs presented at Salone del Mobile, 2012 during Milan Design Week. They were a modern reinterpretation of an otherwise old technique usually seen is decorations and accessories. This technique was basically reinvented and transposed on a series of new surfaces. The same designer is now back with a bigger collection.
This is the Canevas Collection. It was designed for Spanish brand Gan Rugs and this time it includes, besides rugs, a series of cushions and modular or soft poufs. The same technique was used to create a series of cross stitch-inspired pieces featuring abstract patterns. These designs have a dual look. On one hand, they feature vintage patterns that remind us old times. However, on the other hand, this is a modern reinterpretation of those patterns featuring an innovative technique. So even though the starting point and the inspiration are old, the results are new and innovative.
People first used animal skins as rugs in order to keep the cave floor warm and their feet protected. And it felt great. Animal skins were soft and warm, nice to touch, too. I guess after such a long time we still keep a bit of that primary feeling within us because everybody likes a soft fluffy rug even if it is now placed on the floor of a luxury house or flat. However, these rugs are now made of different materials like nylon in order to be cleaned easily and also to resist in any kind of traffic in the house without getting worn or having the hair fall like animal skins did.
If you ever think one of the rooms in your house is a bit boring, dare make a change and this should not be very hard if you decide to follow some of our suggestions and our advice. For example you can change the rug and choose a colourful one that will make your room brighter and merrier. I recommend this Draper Stripe Rug especially for the kids’ room because they seem to like vivid colours very much, but it is also perfect for the living room. The rug has an interesting design that is both simple and effective, as it brings white and yellow stripes together in an interesting mix that brings summer sunshine indoors.
Actually the colour of the stripes is called citrine, which suggests fresh lemons and Mediterranean orchards of lemon-trees. The rug is flat and woven and made of a combination of 80% wool / 20% cotton. This makes it easy to clean and easy to dry, so perfect for a big family with children. Not to mention the fact that it is also lighter than a normal woolen rug and easier to transport. This particular rug is perfect for a small room, as its dimensions are 8′x10′. It can be purchased from Dwell Studio for $495.
Every people is famous for and specialized in a certain field: the French make the most beautiful and famous cosmetics, the Swiss the best chocolate and cheese and so on. The beast rugs have been made for a very long time by the Persians (now the people from Iran) and also all the other people in the Middle East. People here have been manufacturing carpets and rugs for centuries and even longer, using old techniques and dyes. So, if a thing is not broken, why fix it? I mean since they have been doing this for so long, it must be great and their techniques must be the best ones. That is why this Ziegler Modern carpet is one of the carpets that are hinted and wanted by people all over the world.
