Designer Rugs adds the Finishing Touch to Contemporary Homes

Designer Rugs adds the Finishing Touch to Contemporary Homes

Often the most eye catching aspect of a room, the humble rug has come a long way in the late 20th and early 21st centuries – and the team at Designer Rugs are pushing this design hero into the next level with their customisable collection of rugs.

For a design lover, a house may never become a home without those finishing touches – and a custom solution is often the best way to go. In the process of finalising your home, any number of products or finishes could serve as that final objet d’art, and these six one-off pieces from Designer Rugs are examples of just that – the original designs have been custom coloured to perfectly suit the final project and are as unique and aesthetically pleasing as they are functional furnishings for the modern home.
