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.
For me the rug does that: it contributes to the special environment. This rug my mean something but not to me. If you do like it you should know that this piece is handmade in India from pure wool; and if you look close enough you will see that the entire piece is actually made from smaller carpets that are sewn together creating a nice patchwork surface. Also the colors will fade over time, but this is common to natural wool especially if you wash it very often or the sun hits it directly.Available for 190 euros.
