About

ITALIAN DECO

Bespoke furniture icon Tim Gosling set his sights on the striking 1930s Monument of Marcello Piacentini in Northern Italy when designing the Empire rug with industry specialists, The Rug Company.

METALLIC LUSTRE

The design’s stepped Deco lines – classical in their simplicity – are boldly depicted with a lustrous, steel-hued glow against a more muted neutral background, achieved through the luxurious use of hand-knotted Tibetan wool and silk yarns.

UNIQUELY HANDMADE

Working an exquisitely soft cut pile, each rug is completely hand-crafted in Nepal by experienced artisans, who draw on centuries of rug-making expertise to create unique floor coverings with the highest standards of quality and durability.

Dimensions

Available in multiple sizes.

The Rug Company Tips and Tricks:

Living Room:

Go for the largest size you can afford as it gives a generous, calming effect to the room. It’s best to place furniture such as the sofa half on a rug, to give a wonderfully luxurious and flowing feel to the space. Small rugs can look bitty in the wrong space. A common solution is to have a rug that sits within the furniture, in front of sofas and chairs. In this case, the rug should be slightly longer and wider than the furniture and not too far from the seating.

Dining Room:

If you want to unify a room, a large rug will do this most effectively. In this case, leave sufficient extra space around all the furniture so it does not appear ‘perched’ on the edge of the rug. Furniture around the perimeter of the room, such as sideboards and cupboards, are generally best left completely off the rug. For a dining room, a large rug under the table will deaden the sound in the room and bring colour, pattern and texture. Ideally, the rug should be in proportion to the table, and larger than it so that there is sufficient space to pull out a chair and sit down without the back legs coming off the rug. The minimum that allows for this is 75cm so that the ideal size is generally at least 1.50m larger than the table in each direction. Remember that the centre of the rug will mostly be obscured by the table and chairs, so the most important part of the design is the border.

Bedroom:

For a bedroom, the rug is best placed underneath the bed, framing it but stopping short of the side tables. This allows for rug underfoot when one gets out of bed. An alternative option is to have a smaller rug on either side of the bed.
