We’ve collected eight rug options from CC-Tapis to Kvadrat to Moooi Carpets that can help you see your space in a whole new light.
Most of us are more acquainted with our domestic space than we ever have been before thanks to COVID-19 and, as market data shows, that over-familiarity is leading to a marked rise in the purchase of homegoods. Perhaps your idea of a real upgrade goes beyond the addition of one product, but there are few pieces that can really offer an instantaneous transformation of a space like a rug. So if you’ve been on the hunt for that one carpet to rule them all, look no further.
Sabine Marcelis envisioned rooms as blank slates to come up with Stroke, a new rug collection for CC-Tapis (cover image). Each piece, woven from Himalayan wool, features gradients in colour saturation and pile height for maximum dimensionality. cc-tapis.com
One colour for weft, one colour for warp: Duotone, a collection of hand-woven rugs designed by Hella Jongerius for Kvadrat, plays up complimentary contrasts. The technique used to weave the Duotone rugs nods to that of Kvadrat’s iconic basket-woven textile Hallingdal. kvadrat.dk
Tsar’s Circ collection is a modern exploration of Art Deco design principles. Created by in-house designer Teresa Ceberek, Circ combines fine lines, curves and layers in natural undyed wool and calm colour palettes. Photo: Joe Mortell. tsarcarpets.com
A collaboration between Ukrainian interior and industrial designer Daria Zinovatnaya and GAN, Zoe is driven by the tenets of the Russian suprematism and Bauhaus movements.

Inspired by ancient paving stones, the Selce collection – developed by Studio Salaris for Carpet Edition –is defined by irregular borders, deconstructed geometric shapes and different yarns in New Zealand wool, Hardtwist, linen and Tencel. Photo: Beppe Brancato. carpetedition.com
An explosion of vibrant colour for the interior, Technique is one of three designs by John Booth for east London company Floor_Story. The hand-knotted wool-and-viscose rug depicts abstract forms in Booth’s signature style. floorstory.co.uk
Suited for wall hanging, Noun Amsterdam’s The Lips Carpet comes straight from the design imagination of designer Sandra Keja Planken. Hand tufted from eucalyptus wools in bright colours, the piece ‘takes cues from the human body’ and is able to be custom-made in any size or shape. noun-amsterdam.nl
Studio Rens’s Blended line for Moooi Carpets is the result of printing layers of the same colour in varying saturations and intensities. The vibrant collection, which is offered in two different designs, five colourways and three materials, is made via a process that takes cues from Riso techniques.
