Wool Rugs

Wool rugs are a fantastic way to give a room a style lift and make your home feel more comfortable and cosy, especially when such a warm and natural fibre as wool is used. Simply by picking out a wool rugs with a new fresh design, a bit of colour, or something that calms the senses, you’ve instantly got a piece that helps to pull together all your other home accessories. Wool rugs can also group together pieces of furniture, and even provide you with more seating space, making the floor suddenly a little more attractive to sit on.

But with dozens of types of wool rugs out there, it can be difficult to know which kinds of wool rugs you should be looking for (cotton, jute or a blend?), even before you consider colour and design. Whether you’re searching for wool rugs that are suitable for your home, office, a playroom or practically any type of space, a wool rug is a solid option and URBANARA offers a wide range of both modern and more traditional styles. Durable, natural, soft and able to be woven and dyed into almost any type of pattern or finish, there’s rarely a wool rug that won’t do exactly the job you need it to.

What are the benefits of a wool rug?

Naturally anti-static, wool rug will help your home look and feel fresh, and is a great choice for people who suffer from allergies. Because wool doesn't soil easily and is effective at concealing dirt, it’s a practical material for a ground covering, especially in parts of your home that are exposed to a lot of foot traffic. Bear in mind, however, if buying wool rugs for a children's bedroom or playroom, a grey wool rug is a safer option than a white wool rug.

Having a wool rug in your living room and bedroom will actually make your house safer and healthier to live in – so there’s no second guessing this fantastic floor material. Finally, wool rugs are also a wonderful insulator against the cold, so can help reduce heating costs while keeping your rooms warm and your feet toasty. Because it’s a natural fibre, a wool rug will be better at regulating your temperature in the warmer months, so you’ll feel less uncomfortable on wool rugs in the summertime than if you had a synthetic one.

Which wool rugs are the best ?

The quality of the wool has a big impact on the overall design and finish of wool rugs. To achieve long-lasting wool rugs that’s durable and will still look beautiful after lots of use, high-quality, natural wool must be woven, thickly and tightly either by hand or machine, on a tapestry loom. Additionally, URBANARA sells a rug underlay made in Germany from polyester fleece. The underlay is designed to stop your rug from slipping, as well as to keep both floor and wool rugs(or other fibre rug) in great condition, prolonging its life.

What size wool rug should I buy ?

Wool rugs and runners are available in several sizes. Most common sizes are 140 x 200 cm, 160 x 230 cm, and 200 x 300 cm. Large wool rugs are suitable for placing under a table or in a living space. Large wool rugs are also a good size if you want to layer your wool rugs for a cosy, eclectic look and add a modern and on-trend touch to your home.

Large wool rugs are a suitable size for large, open, warehouse-style spaces, and will help segment or divide a room.

Traditional wool rugs

Traditional wool rug designs are woven on a loom using a plain weave, or are tufted to produce a soft, lush pile. The higher the pile, the softer the rug will be. The majority of URBANARA wool rugs are made with 100% pure, natural wool for the ultimate in home luxury.

Traditional wool rugs with Oriental and Aztec designs look beautiful against hardwood flooring and light coloured tiles. Pair a white wool rug with floor cushions or a pouf for an interesting and alternative look. Often, traditional grey wool rugs have fringing too, which provide a tidy finishing touch to a classic style rug. A white wool rug or grey wool rug holds a timeless style, keeping a traditional look to your room without a danger of the piece ageing.

Modern wool rugs

A modern wool rug can help to bring a little warmth and softness to a contemporary interior. For a fun, modern look, select a white wool rug with a woven pattern.

Modern rugs in more subdued colours, like a grey wool rug, light blues or greens or a more natural colour such as cream or beige, are ideal for creating a calm atmosphere especially given the natural material used to make them. Just because a rug is neutral in colour, doesn’t mean it has to be boring: a chunky weave or patterned tuft can give a space depth and texture, helping to ad interest to a subdued colour scheme.
