A New Year, A New Look?

Revitalise Your Home For 2013

The rush and excitement of Christmas is well and truly over and 2013 is now in full swing.  A new year can bring about a lot of questions about ourselves from our career goals to our lifestyle. 

A New Year means a whole new set of possibilities and opportunities and we often find ourselves clearing out the old and bringing in the new. 

For some of us this allows us to let go of the past and welcome a new beginning and fresh start. For others it is simply spring cleaning coming early or taking advantage of some Christmas money to spend on ourselves for a change. 

Whatever your reason may be, one of the easiest ways to revitalise your home or work place is by adding a rug to it. Not only does a new rug instantly lift a dull and faded carpet, or create a soft warm feeling underfoot on hard floors, it also adds colour, warmth and personality to any room. 

Rugs come in a variety of sizes and prices to suit all rooms and budgets. They range in style from traditional designs to modern and elegant, to funky ‘out there’ designs! There really is a rug to suit every room and every personality. 


If you are in search of a new you and a new home without moving or picking up a paint brush then browse through our website and see what takes your fancy. You can even add rugs to your ‘wishlist’ and come back to them another day.

 If you have any questions we are always happy to help on the other end of the phone or by email.

Louis de Poortere @ Rugs Direct

Rugs allow you to inject a bit of class and style into your interior design, especially if you are able to find unique, exciting rugs from designers like Louis De Poortere. Louis De Poortere specialise is producing vintage rugs with a modern twist. They deliver on sophistication and quality and help you to lift the appearance of your interiors to another level. 

Whether you want something tasteful and neutral or a statement piece to bring your room to life and be the focal point, you will find a Louis De Poortere rug to suit you.  All of their rugs are luxurious in quality, durable and comfortable underfoot.

Based in Belgium, Louis de Poortere have been producing luxurious rugs since 1859. Their hugely respected team of Flemish weavers are proud to have a great deal of ownership over every stage of the production process, from their own spinning, dying and weaving. This allows them to produce high quality Wilton rugs made from 100 per cent wool, all of which are completely recyclable and bio-degradable.

Here at Rugs Direct we currently have two fantastic rug ranges available by Louis De Poortere.  The Vintage collection is a stunning range of classic designs that have been updated to create a fresh take on an established look. They features a selection of stylish patchwork designs in modern and traditional colour options and offer a contemporary twist on traditional styles to suit most modern interiors.

Decromatic is the latest textured rug from Louis De Poortere. A beautiful textured collection in a vibrant palette of 23 stunning colours and 6 standard sizes.  The variety in colours and sizes allows you to choose a rug that will compliment any sized room decorated in any colour and style!


Better still, all Louis De Poorter rugs allow custom sizes on request and have a  revolutionary built in antislip backing which is completely invisible and performs brilliantly.
