A Very Special Rug

This week I had a lot of fun playing around with a little corner of the house!  If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know that while I only do big projects once in awhile...I do love switching things up and creating new and seasonal vignettes.  I think it's a throwback to the many years I did 
monthly vintage sales and countless setups...something I loved.

It all started when I received this beautiful Stone Rug from Sukhi Rugs!  
Have you seen these before? 
 I hadn't...and fell in love when I saw these on the Sukhi Website.  
They have many wonderful rugs~Moroccan Beni Ourain, Nepalese Felt Ball Rugs, Turkish Patchwork, and Indian Wool and Felt Rugs. Their rugs are not knock-offs, but high quality, original artisan pieces that will be heirlooms. Sukhi respects tradition and is socially conscious, engaging in fair trade practices. They partner directly with the artisans, who have good working conditions 
and earn 2-3 times the average regional salary.

This very short video shares three artisans...



And this one shows you how the felt ball rugs are made...so interesting!



My stone rug took weeks to make...starting with 100% New Zealand wool.  
The rug is so soft on my feet.  It is heavy, sturdy, and warm.


I love the look of stones...gives a wonderful touch of nature to a space.  
While Sukhi has many colorful rugs,
 the stone rugs are great for a neutral color scheme.
And they come in several tone variations...browns, grays, and black and white. 
The rug has a wonderful plush texture...these are solid felted wool balls.
I added more texture with a rustic wood table, a vintage tole candleholder, a sampler, and my husband's grandmother's old shell box.





And since I love the look of vintage and modern...I used one of my favorite chairs.



Imagine one of these room size rugs? Heaven!
And they are meant to last...you vacuum and spot clean...and if they need a cleaning, take it outside and hose it down, use gentle detergent and rinse. 
Then let it dry...even out in the sun.




Sukhi means "Happy" in Nepalese...and I am very happy with this beautiful rug. 
This vignette is very much my style...and is how we will be decorating the lakehouse when we move.  The rug will be wonderful there!





Thank you, Sukhi!

Until next time...
