It’s that time of year again. It’s time to get cozy, pack away the flip flops and Netflix and chill. Yup, it’s fall and I don’t know about you but I love feeling a wonderful quality wool or silk rug under my feet as the temperatures drop. I’m obsessed with rugs. I love a good Persian, Turkish, Kashmir, Boho, Flokati or other kind of high quality, natural fiber rug. There are so many combinations of colours and patterns and weaves out there so it can be daunting to choose not to mention the price of buying new from a rug store of large retailer. Buying a rug through consignment can save you approximately 75% of the retail price. High quality rugs wear well and will last for decades or longer with a little bit of care but there’s nothing wrong with a bit of fading and wear on a rug as this often adds patina which is a coveted look, like this fabulous antique tribal rug pictured below. This yellow colour will bring much needed sun to your home during our dark and dreary winter days. It also looks amazing draped over a leather ottoman or sofa.
We have a huge collection of rugs at Consignment Canada in North Vancouver. All sizes, shapes and fibers. You can find many of our rugs listed on our website but we have many, many more in store of all different sizes.
