Blomma's Best: Berber Rugs

Berber rugs are all over the place right now. Super shaggy, soft and delicious underfoot, they make a wonderful statement, adding a touch of the luxurious world traveller vibe to your home. Whether you are looking for adding some bohemian charm to a neutral bedroom, or a pop of colour to a tired bedroom, a Berber rug could be the perfect addition. I already have three in my house so my love is getting slightly out of hand, particularly when so many great high-street options keep cropping up.

To help wade through the wonderful world of the Berber, here are my picks for the best out there right now...

  1. This unique, one of a kind rug is currently being sold at Urban Outfitters for £790. It is handmade in 100% wool and measures 9x5ft so is a really decent size. I love the colours which would make an amazing statement in any room, especially if you are going for that bohemian Californian vibe which, I mean, why wouldn't you
  2. This Berber style rug is great value and from a brand which is really upping it's home accessories at the moment; La Redoute. Prizes start at £59 but the biggest is still under £200 so really quite reasonable. It isn't wool, but it is stain resistant because of that which means it is going to be hardy in a high traffic area
  3. This colourful number is from West Elm who do have a great selection of rugs available. They are a it more pricey than some of the other high-street options but the quality is great and they often have sales/offers on so its worth keeping an eye on the website. This one is £499 and is fairly small. It is 100% wool though and the colours are just beautiful.
  4. One of my favourite small retailers who is bringing amazingly designed, great quality rugs over from Morocco; Ella Jones from The Rug Trade. All ethically sourced and handmade by true craftsmen. This is my favourite at the minute - that pink colour against the black. wow. This one is £390 so really quite competitive when you compare against the high-street and you are really getting something very special and unique.
  5. Finally, if you are looking for rug which brings a touch of colour, but which isn't quite as shouty as the super colourful options out there, then this is a real winner. It is from independent rug retailer the Rug Merchant. It's a really affordable option as it isn't wool, with prices starting at £134.
Tempted? I literally want them all.
