Roll up your dark, heavy carpet and put out something fresh and new for the balmy season. To wit, these lightweight, fresh-looking rugs from nuLOOM will give your home a summery vibe. Mix it up with graphic flat weaves (we love the chevron-stripe and the Moroccan star motifs) and natural fibers like jute and wool to achieve that effortless beach-cottage look.
Every well-designed room starts with a beautiful foundation — and interior designers and architects have long looked to rug-maker nuLOOM to provide it. The NYC-based company specializes in high-quality contemporary floor coverings in graphic floral patterns, bold animal prints, and urbane stripes; it also carries hand-knotted rugs created in collaboration with Dutch design team Brink & Campman. But nuLOOM remains best known for its fluffy flokatis, super-soft wool carpets that come in colors ranging from traditional naturals to poppy pinks.
