Stuck for a Present? The How about a Rug!

3 Essential Ingredients for the Perfect Christmas Rug

With the big day just around the corner, time is running out to secure those perfect Christmas presents.

But just because the festive season is all about giving doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself now and then, right? With that in mind – and to get into the Christmas spirit – we thought we’d take a look at the essential elements for the perfect Christmas rug. So if you’re looking to create a winter wonderland in your own home this December, our recommendations for a Christmas rug should really come in handy.

A seasonal colour scheme

Before you ask: we’re not talking about a Christmas rug that’s adorned with sparkles, tinsel, gold and silver (although if that’s your kind of thing, we won’t stop you). There are some colours that can be regarded as both festive and appropriate all year round, making them perfect for Christmas rugs. Take red and green for example; these are two classically festive colours that lots of rugs feature. The Swing Funky multi-textured rugs include a floral pattern with red and green highlights blended with just a touch of amber – a real contender for a Christmas rug!

A long pile for extra cosiness

What do you think of when you picture Christmas? Perhaps it’s the traditional image of a warm fireplace with cold weather outside? If so, the perfect Christmas rug has to include a thick, cosy texture for that extra touch of the warm and cosy. Any one of the shaggy rugs in our range would be an ideal choice – a great Christmas rug on which to open your presents on Christmas morning! Shaggy rugs are great as Christmas rugs because the long, soft and feathery pile makes them a real pleasure to sit on.

A traditional design for your Christmas rug

Okay, so it might not be ideal to have a rug in your home all year round which features Santa Claus or Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer – but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy traditional designs. Intricate and ornate patterns such as those you see on our antique rug ranges are ideal for Christmas because they evoke images of a wintry, traditional England – and the blend of reds and greens doesn’t hurt the Christmas rug image either.
