Refresh your home décor with a new carpet or rug

Looking to change things up or to add a little extra something to your home? Why not get your hands on a new carpet or rug? These little numbers can add some colour and style to your living space; you’ll be surprised what a difference they can make to a room. We’ve sourced some of the best stores around town for all your carpet and rug needs – and, while we were at it, we asked the staff for some tips on buying and caring for carpets. So, listen up!


Proof Living

The extensive rug collection at Proof Living includes items imported from Finland, Germany and Italy, and you’ll find rugs in a variety of materials including yarn, wool and silk.

What to get:

Made in Finland from paper yarn from natural wood, the Woodnotes Paper Yarn Rug is a piece of simple and unstated beauty – and durable at the same time. A great addition to any room.

Add some shimmer to your living space with an elegant Tufenkian Carpet. You’ll enjoy how the light plays across the woven silk surface.

Hand-knotted in Nepal, the Legends of Carpets collection by Walter Knoll translates abstract paintings into timeless woven artworks. The carpets are made from quality wool from Tibet, and silk and nettle yarn from China.

How about some tips?

  • Pick rugs that have undergone soil-repellent treatment, which prevents dirt from soaking into the fibre.
  • Stains or spots should be removed right away. Work from the sides toward the centre to prevent a mark from spreading.

WTP The Furniture Company

Add a fluffy carpet to your living room

WTP The Furniture Company sources its rugs from India, Turkey and Iran; you’ll find pieces made of wool, cotton and even leather in the store.

What to get: 

The Thick Pile Carpet is great for adding some colour to a room. It’s made of wool and viscose, and, even though it’s thick, it doesn’t trap dust.

Crafted from cotton and leather, the Dhurrie Carpet comes with a thin pile which is great for people who are prone to allergies. Some varieties even come with reversible designs.

Incredibly soft and comfy, the Shaggy Carpet will do well in your little one’s room, providing great cushioning for falls with its thick pile.

How about some tips?

  • If you have allergies, pick a rug made of polyester instead of natural fibre. Also, choose a thinner pile carpet.
  • Mix things up: if you have modern furniture, pair it with an oriental rug.
