Winter is the time to turn inward and focus on family, friends, and your own personal health and wellbeing. It's the time when we catch up on much-needed sleep, furnish our homes with fab rugs, throws, cushions and pillows, and indulge in warming stews, casseroles, curries, and hot dishes we can't stomach in the hot summer months.
Unless you are cold. Then it is miserable. Good quality floor coverings, adequate window coverings, a source of heat, hot water bottles, and a big fluffy dressing gown make for an enjoyable winter. But to be honest, we think the choice of flooring in winter is paramount. If your home has wooden floorboards, slate, polished concrete, or floating floors, you'll know just what we mean. Bring a colourful rug to the party, quick smart. It's the simplest way to warm up your home and nourish your soul too.
A chindi rug is the best kind of soft, enchanting floor rug. Walking or laying on it can be a dream - it's like being on a cloud! They are definitely not traditional rugs though - much more fun than that! These fab rugs in bright rainbow colours make us want to shut the door and never leave again.
At Recycled Mats, we stock chindi rugs in a variety of sizes.
Be warned. Your new chindi rug might be snaffled by the kids. Don't be surprised to find it missing from the lounge room one early morning!
The second style is a more grown-up version - it's a combination of denim and cotton. These elegant rugs are definitely for the adults. These living room rugs will be a talking piece, as they are made from recycled denim from manufacturing offcuts by hand. They are also a great rug to keep your toes warm.
