A woollen rug is an excellent option for Hamptons and French style homes because it carries a sense of refinement, it’s an ode to the beauty of natural materials, and it’s durable and can be a great fit for any lifestyle.
Wool rugs, particularly the ones we’re introducing, are also textured in a way that creates depth, and the opportunity to layer which is such a core design element of both quintessential Hamptons and French style.
Wool also lends itself to a feeling of chic warmth, and these rugs are designed for longevity making them ideal for any space in a home, including high-traffic areas. The craftsmanship is impeccable and includes hooked, woven and hand-knotted items. Many of the rugs feature elegant patterns and neutral colour palettes, but some options also have pops of colour such as blue and green.
