Traditional rugs bring life to your floor and a sense of warmth to your home.
Inspired by centuries old designs, from the most humble nomadic tribal weavings to the finest Oriental and European carpets, commissioned for Great Houses and Royal Palaces. Available in a large assortment of sizes, traditional rugs look at home in all surroundings with designs and colours to suit all tastes.
Traditional rugs are amongst the most impressive and fetching of all types of floor covering available. The gloriously intricate patterns are inspired by designs that have been handed down over the centuries, emanating from the most humble origins amongst nomadic tribes people in Central Asia. As trade has flourished over the ages, the craftsmen who were producing beautiful hand-woven rugs in Afghanistan, India, Persia and many other locations found new markets for their rugs. These beautifully wrought examples of decoration were soon in high demand from the great houses and royal palaces of Europe. Once highly prized by European emperors and kings, in modern times they are the floor covering of choice for many an astute interior designer.
