Casual, comfortable and contemporary, the Mangas line of hand crafted wool rugs and wool poufs by Gandia Blasco (GAN) is an essential for winter-time cocooning, adding instant cozy to any home. Inspired by traditional knit motifs, it’s like dressing your rooms in your favorite scarf and mittens. The hand-tufted, hand-knotted wool rugs pamper your feet. Laid out in front of a crackling fireplace, the style is very apres-ski chic. The color palette of soft greys, pastels and warm browns adds to the softness. Coordinate the look with these matching poufs, offering extra lounging and seating spots in the den, TV room or living area. The irregular shapes add to the artisan, hand-crafted feel.
The Rug Company presents designer rugs that prove how underrated this creative aspect of home design is. A gorgeous designer rug can make any room come alive with color, texture and warmth. The Rug Company’s rugs are designed by such famous names as Diane Von Furstenberg, Vivienne Westwood, and Marni.
