Rugs for Modern Interiors

Handmade Oriental carpets bring an immediate touch of unique decorative magic to even the most minimalist of contemporary interiors.

To this end, we photographed a random selection of antique and modern Persian and Indian rugs from our stock in some characteristic modernist London apartment settings.

Radiant Runners

Corridors and hallways provide ideal (and often neglected) areas for examples from our fine range of handknotted runners to bring immediate character and emphasis:

Carpets for Rooms

In Reception and Living spaces, the broad splashes of colour, uncluttered compositions and infinitely subtle tonal nuances of the best handwoven carpets bring these minimalist interiors come into unforgettable life. The exciting spontaneity of individual human craftsmanship is the unique decorative X Factor that sets rugs of this calibre in a class of their own.
