Drawing on the ancient traditions used to create a seamless transition from the outdoors into the home, the Warwick collection, through Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Home , presents a series of rugs that will be perfect, both indoors and outdoors. Power-loomed with 100% polypropylene, the Warwick line maintains a striking beauty, while being UV, mold, and mildew resistant. These are rugs that withstand the elements, and remain beautiful, whether indoor or outdoor, in rain or shine.
Warwick rugs were inspired by the tribal mud cloths that people the world over, from Asia to long-lost Arabia, have used since ancient times. In a time before roads and driveways became normal for every home, dirt and mud would be left tracked all over a home. Weavers soon devised mud rugs as a way to prevent this, and expressed their own creativity and values in the designs they wove.
This collection brings these timeless traditions into the modern day, while maintaining the same sense of elegance, and personal touches, that our ancestors were so well known for. The patterns and colors are muted, subtle ventures that don’t overwhelm, but still inspire a sense of wonder and mystery just by looking at them. With the Warwick series, you can rest assured that your home will stay clean of dirt and mud, your guests will appreciate the unique design your rug showcases, and that your rug will endure, no matter what the weather outside looks like.
Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
