Following Milan Design Week, I spotted a distinct trend for unusual shaped rugs. It would appear that rugs don’t just come in standard rectangle or circular shapes anymore.
A couple of months ago, we got a professional company in to clean the carpets at work. Both my bosses regularly bring their dogs in to work and with moderate foot fall through the building, the carpets were starting to look really rather filthy.

I have previously featured some fantastically bright and graphic rugs from Sonya Winner and also some amazingly arty and abstract rugs by Calle Henzel, which are two of my favourite rug collections.
