Be floored by these stylish rugs that anchor a room and add a sense of cosiness and warmth

Rugs instantly add comfort to any home. They’re one of the easiest ways to create a sense of cosiness and shape an inviting ambience. Besides providing warmth and protecting the floor from scratches, these soft textiles also help define an area, particularly in homes with an open-plan layout. 

Opting for a decorative rug delivers an added tactile layer to a space. Make a style statement with various colours, patterns, and texture to form a strong visual impact that will elevate the room. There’s a style to suit nearly every taste, whether you’re looking for a sleek natural sisal rug or a soft and colourful patterned rug.

Contrary to what you may expect, this colourful rug is not named after the famous childhood character. It gains its namesake from its resemblance to colourful sugar-coated liquorice balls, a popular Danish candy. The rug is handmade in Nepal using traditional craft techniques, where the vibrant felt balls are individually rolled and strung on a cord. The colourful elements are then placed together and sewn into a circular rug that adds a playful touch to any interior.
