Pattern Play

Rugs are fantastic tools for adding personality and style to a room, and patterns play a crucial role in achieving various aesthetic goals. Here’s a breakdown of different pattern types and how to style them:

Geometric Patterns:

Style: Geometric patterns include shapes like squares, triangles, circles, and diamonds. They create a sense of structure and orderliness in a room.

Where to Use: Ideal for modern and contemporary interiors. They can also add a sophisticated touch to minimalist or Scandinavian-inspired spaces.

Styling Tips: Pair geometric rugs with clean-lined furniture. Ensure the rugs colours complement or contrast with your existing decor for a cohesive look.

Floral Patterns:

Style: Floral patterns range from intricate designs with realistic flowers to abstract interpretations. They bring a touch of nature indoors and evoke a sense of beauty and serenity.
Where to Use: Great for traditional, eclectic, or bohemian styles. They soften and add warmth to spaces, especially bedrooms and living rooms.
Styling Tips: Choose floral rugs that harmonise with your room’s colour palette. They can serve as a focal point or blend in subtly depending on size and placement.

Abstract Patterns:

Style: Abstract patterns are non-representational, often featuring bold colours and irregular shapes. They encourage creativity and imagination.

Where to Use: Perfect for contemporary and eclectic interiors. They can also add an artistic flair to minimalist or industrial spaces.

Styling Tips: Use abstract rugs to inject energy and personality into a room. Balance their boldness with simpler furniture and decor pieces to avoid overwhelming the space.

Stripes and Chevron Patterns:

Style: Stripes and chevron patterns create visual interest through repetition and directionality. They can make a room appear larger or draw attention to specific areas.

Where to Use: Versatile for almost any interior style depending on colour and width. Horizontal stripes can widen a space, while vertical stripes can elongate it.

Styling Tips: Consider the scale of the stripes relative to your room size. Mix with solid colours or other patterns sparingly to maintain balance.

Moroccan and Tribal Patterns:

Style: Inspired by traditional North African and Indigenous designs, these patterns often feature bold colours and intricate motifs.

Where to Use: Ideal for bohemian, global, or eclectic interiors. They add warmth and cultural richness.

Styling Tips: Combine with natural materials like wood, rattan, or leather for an earthy vibe. These rugs can also complement contemporary settings by adding texture and contrast.

Colour Spectrum

Choose from a range of urban inspired hues, including sophisticated greys, industrial blacks and vibrant pops of urban colours.


Neutrals with a Twist:

Style: Urban neutrals like charcoal grey, slate blue, and industrial concrete tones provide a contemporary backdrop. They are sleek, sophisticated, and versatile.

Where to Use: Ideal for urban apartments, lofts, or homes with modern architecture. They complement minimalist, industrial, or Scandinavian styles.

Styling Tips: Opt for rugs with subtle textures or patterns in neutral shades to add depth. Mix with black accents or metallic finishes for an urban edge.

Monochrome Accents:

Style: Monochrome rugs in shades of black, white, and shades of grey create a minimalist and sleek aesthetic. They emphasise clean lines and modern simplicity.

Where to Use: Perfect for urban interiors with minimalist or contemporary design. They can anchor furniture arrangements without overpowering the space.

Styling Tips: Experiment with varying shades of grey or use a black and white patterned rug as a focal point. Add pops of colour sparingly through accessories or artwork.

Industrial Inspired Tones:

Style: Industrial colours such as rusty reds, deep greens, and weathered browns evoke a sense of urban grit and history. They add warmth and character to spaces.

Where to Use: Great for loft apartments, converted warehouses, or homes with exposed brick and metal elements. They suit industrial or eclectic styles.

Styling Tips: Choose rugs with distressed textures or faded prints that mimic aged materials. Mix with leather furniture or metal accents for an authentic industrial feel.

Pop of Urban Brights:

Style: Urban settings often embrace bold colours like electric blue, neon green, or vibrant orange. These hues inject energy and personality into a room.

Where to Use: Use in urban dwellings with a contemporary or eclectic vibe. They work well in spaces where you want to make a statement.

Styling Tips: Incorporate a rug with a bold colour as a focal point. Balance with neutral walls and furniture to prevent overwhelming the space. Use accessories in complementary tones to tie the room together.

Metallic Finishes:

Style: Metallic rugs in shades of silver, gold, or copper add a touch of glamour and sophistication to urban interiors. They reflect light and create a luxurious feel.

Where to Use: Suitable for urban apartments or homes with modern or glam decor styles. They enhance contemporary or eclectic spaces.

Styling Tips: Choose rugs with metallic threads or shimmering textures. Pair with velvet or satin upholstery for a plush contrast. Use mirrors and glass accents to enhance the reflective quality.

Tips for Styling with Urban Colours

Contrast and Balance: Mix different urban colours while maintaining a balance between bold statements and subtle accents. Contrast textures and finishes to add depth.

Urban Chic Accessories: Incorporate urban-themed artwork, cityscape prints, or industrial-inspired decor items to complement your rug’s colour palette.

Functional Design: Consider the rug’s practicality in urban living—opt for durable materials that can withstand heavy foot traffic and maintenance.
Personal Expression: Use rugs as a canvas for personal expression in urban spaces. Whether you prefer a minimalist approach or a vibrant urban palette, let your rug reflect your style and personality.
