The Gallery: sumptuous carpets
Hard floors may have plenty to offer aesthetically, but some rooms just don't feel complete without a warm, soft carpet underfoot. For the latest in stylish cosy carpets, you've come to the right place.
Fanciful FloorsDon’t be afraid of using pattern on the floor. A decorative but subtle design such as Anatolia Medallion Pampas by Ulster is an elegant choice for a classic or contemporary setting, available from a range at Fludes Carpets.
Softly SoftlyBisam Effect is a velour carpet with anti-allergy properties from German company Vorwerk Carpets. The pearl velour has a luxurious texture and is arranged in broad stripes that come in 21 elegant colourways, shown here in Cream Tea 897G.
Check MateBored of that feature wall? Go for a feature floor instead! This Natural Plaid in Cormorant by Axminster Carpets captures a traditional country feel but in the right setting can look striking and modern, available at Reynolds Furniture.
