Objects of Design #152: Boho Rug

Made from cotton, this fabulous monochrome rug measures 230cm by 160cm so it’s large enough to sit under many kitchen or dining tables. It’s also a practical colour as the slightly mottled effect means it won’t show the crumbs.

I have a very elderly Persian rug under my kitchen table and it is, as my mother puts it, very forgiving of anything that gets thrown at it or dropped on it by small children or ageing adults.

This is similar and, let’s be honest, it’s not sooooo expensive that you’d be frightened to wash it, or even let a small child near it. £125

  1. This is PERFECT! I’ve been looking for something to replace my old rug under my coffee table but hadn’t managed to find “the one” – this is it! Thanks 🙂
