Week two of the new series: Boom/Bust and this week we are looking at monochrome rugs. Black and white is still a strong colour combination and will be a continuing trend next season. Of course for some it never went away no matter what the fashion forecasters say. The joy of monochrome is that you can mix it with any other colour to make it completely your own; blush or neon pink, Hermes orange or lime green. Even shades of grey are enlived with strong black and white patterns.
And that’s the other great thing about monochrome. It works briliantly with strong geometric patterns and that’s the other great story of the moment. So, ( I feel I should say) without further ado:
MONOCHROME RUGS: BOOM OR BUST?
Key Wool Dhurrie from Westelm £499 (244cm x 305cm)
The Lappljung rug from Ikea is made from polypropylene and is £75 (200cm x 300cm)
And one for the middle ground… do we call that Boost? or Bum?
Anyway it’s the Serengeti from the Plantation Rug Company and costs £100 for 120cm x 180cm. It did exist in a larger size (150cm x 230cm but there are none left). You can find this size at Heals
So there we have this week’s Boom, Bust or Boost. Which will you choose? If you’re new to the series, last week we featured brass lamps
