Sometimes you have something very specific in mind when it comes to a new rug – border colour, type of material, exact dimensions – and matching these can be difficult. That’s why we love Rebtex’s ‘design your own rug’ service.
You can choose between natural fibres and colours, choose a border colour you love, and see what it’ll look like on the floor you have. It’s a breeze to use the platform, and before you know it, you’ll have a custom rug delivered to your door.

The joy of natural fibre rugs is that they can easily and effectively be used in every room in the house, from cosying up bedrooms, to tying together living and dining rooms. Their neutral base offers the perfect warm addition to any room, allowing you to limitlessly play with other accessories and decor items. They are also an easy and cost effective way to give a room a mini seasonal make-over.

Modern Moroccan decor is less canopied beds and hanging lanterns, and more muted tones, natural fibres and flashes of vivid colour. It’s easy to introduce this classic look into your home with decorative tiles, pouffes, a nude palette with bold accents, and natural rugs and carpets (sisal, jute, seagrass or coir).

When more is more. Layering rugs is a smart, simple and affordable way to add interest and texture to a room.

My favourite way to layer rugs is to add colour – a small bright, patterned rug on top of a more affordable large Rebtex sisal or jute carpet is just the thing to brighten up a room (and much less of a commitment than buying a large Persian). There’s nothing prettier than a beautiful Moroccan or kilim rug over a large neutral coloured rug – the bottom rug provides beautiful texture and frames the more intricate top layer.
A cowhide rug on top of a sisal rug, or a sheepskin on top of a jute rug, or anything soft on top of a flat weave – these are also ways to add interest and texture, but in a more subtle but equally effective way.
