more info...Grey rugs and silver rugs have become the latest favourite colour in interiors. These can look effortlessly cool and sophisticated on the floor, while their neutral tones allow other colours to be easily introduced into the room. Our greys and silver rugs range from very light silvers through to the darker greys. And they are available in all materials such as pure wool, wool blended with other materials, and manmade fibres, where materials such as viscose and micro polyester have been introduced to add a slight shimmer to the rug, creating light and shade effects across the pile.
Grey Rugs and Silver RugsGrey Rugs can offer a great easy to match colour for the modern home. The colour is neutral and so tends to blend in with most room settings. But it is also very contemporary, synching in with hi tech products around a room, such as flat screen TVs, i-Pads, mobile phones and other gadgets which all tend to be in similar metal tones.
Is grey the new neutral?Grey is fast becoming the new beige, ie a colour that is easy to match in most interior decors. Beige was once ubiquitous on walls and floors, but this is being taken over by the use of grey and colours with a hint of grey in them. These tones tend to look more contemporary than beige, and indeed beige has become a slightly negative, retro terms for some designers.
Fifty shades of grey rugs
Lots of people have been talking about shades of grey, and not only about the book but also in interior design. Grey has become a lead colour in lots of our new collections.
Over the past year, we've seen a big rise in demand for grey rugs, as well as the closely related colour, silver. Grey is definitely no longer a dull, boring colour. There are so many shades of grey available, from very light sliver-grey to dark charcoal grey, with a multitude of variations in between.
Different pile materials are also giving different textures for these grey rugs. There are all-wool pile rugs that have all the natural warmth and softness of wool. And new materials such as polyester and viscose that can add a shimmering style to the rug with variations in light and shade across the pile.
The positives we hear from people who like grey rugs, include that fact that they can look sophisticated, cool and modern, with hints of modern minimalist, apartment style. At the same time, they have an effortless and understated elegance, that can suit a classic period interior.
Silver RugsSilver rugs have been growing in popularity as well, probably for the same reasons. Silver rugs often come in viscose or polyester fibres which can add a slight shimmer to the surface to enhance it with a slightly shimmering or metallic effect.
