CHOOSE THE RIGHT RUG FOR YOUR HOME
Select the right size
Before you buy your rug, measure the space where it is going to be placed. Should the rug be lying by the couch, it should be slightly wider than the couch itself. This is to frame and accommodate the surface for the furniture. Also, push the rug about 20 cm under the couch or bed to unite the group of furniture with the rug and defining the space. If the rug is too small, the furniture appears to float freely on the floor and outside the rug, which is often perceived as messier in the room.
Frame the space
When choosing the shape and size of your rug, you should consider the size and shape of the room. Larger rooms require a larger rug or several smaller ones to create the feeling of a room in the room. For example, if you have a dining area and a sofa in the same room, the rug works as a spatial marker for the two different areas and can create a divided yet consistent atmosphere in the same room. If you have a larger room with an empty surface or with fewer furniture, a rug works like a focus point on the floor and gives the room a more intimate feeling.
Combine pattern and colour
A difficult decision may be to choose the colour or the pattern on the rug. If you have a patterned room with, for example, patterned curtains and cushions and very lively walls with art or patterned wallpaper, a single-coloured could be a choice since it will calm down and hold together a colour scale chosen in the room. If you have a more minimalistic interior with a neutral colour scheme, a patterned rug can serve as an eye catcher and create an interesting feature in the room. To enhance the style in the room you can match the pattern in the rug with similar patterns on cushions or a blanket on the couch.
Rugs with a strong sense of design and craftsmanship
Linum´s designed rugs are the result of timeless Swedish design, solid Indian craftsmanship and materials with high quality.
All our rugs are handmade by skilled weavers with many years experience. Either woven or tufted in natural materials such as wool, linen, cotton and jute.
The dying technique behind the yarn’s beautiful shades of colour varies from rug to rug. It is a close collaboration between Linum and the dying masters with the aim to create the perfect living surface for each rug. Sometimes a shaggy rug and sometime flatwoven, yet our aim is to create a unique, long lasting product with a high quality.
We also have a top segment of rugs, produced in collaboration with top tier, Swedish rug maker, Kasthall in their own factory in Kinna.
The rug collection is designed for comfort, long-term use and with good materials that are both visible and tactile. Linum’s rugs are durable classics for the conscious modern home that breathes style, simplicity and quality in every detail. Rugs that can be enjoyed for years to come.
