Graphic rugs

I hunted down the Freedom Bazaar rug (left). I haven't yet decided where it will go but it caught my eye when I first saw it on the cover of the winter catalogue. It was the last one at my store and discounted - win! 

The look of handicrafts and traditional patterns have been a strong trend this winter with suzani textiles, hand embroidery and tribal patterns adding a colourful and visually rich feel to interiors.

If you have also had your eye on the Bazaar rug but it didn't quite suit, check out the new graphic rug now available at IKEA - a large, square rug at a great price! The new Freedom catalogue is expected to be out in a few weeks.

Bazaar floor rug (160 x 230cm), $449, Freedom versus LAPPLJUNG RUTA (200 x 200cm), $99, IKEA.
