COZY AND WOOLLY

There's nothing like an area rug to add personality to a home. Sometimes it even becomes the point of departure when decorating a room. Besides making a visual statement in a space, rugs are great for defining specific areas in a layout. If you’re looking for practicality as well as beauty a wool rug is your best bet—it's gorgeously soft and rather durable. Being a luxurious fibre, wool brings extra comfort and warmth to your abode. Its durability makes wool rugs ideal for areas that see a lot of foot traffic. They come in a variety of colors, patterns, textures and plies. But patterned carpets are less likely to show dirt and are more forgiving on busy areas like family rooms, dining room, halls, stairs and landings. Since wool is a recyclable and naturally flame-resistant fibre, wool rugs are a smart choice if you want to help the environment. Besides being a valuable investment that will serve you for many years to come, wool rugs are the epitome of practicality and style.
