Rugs: A Guide
A rug comes pretty handy to define the space in an open-plan living area. In a room where you have kitchen, dining area and sofa, define and divide the areas avoiding the use of walls or screens. You might want to have a rug under your table and chairs and a different rug for your sofa. Why not adding a small rug for a reading or office corner.
Wool is a natural fibre that offers comfort and warmth, it’s also hard-wearing, fire resistant, dirt repellent and a sound insulator. There are numerous types of wool available on the market. Our rugs are made from New Zealand wool, which is grown in open pasture land following sustainable land use and animal-friendly practices and is natural, renewable and biodegradable.
Innovative Sustainable Materials
FermLiving is turning plastic into a beautiful series of rugs suitable for both indoor and outdoor. With the help of specialised technology the Way Series are made entirely from used plastic bottles – the PET-yarn. The Way Rug and the Way Runner might not feel warm and soft but they are a great choice for heavy traffic areas like hallways, landing and kitchens and for outdoor.
Warmer weather conditions call for a change in your home. We like to swap the wool rugs with cotton ones. Cotton rugs are very practical and easy to wash at home. Lorena Canals has a great selection of cotton rugs washable you might want to have a look at.
