Introducing our new plush crush: hand-tufted designer rugs.

Designed by Sydney-based artist Avril Gilmore, the whimsical Whirl rug features a carnival of colour to complement any luxe living space. Crafted from premium New Zealand wool, it is hand-tufted for durability and the ability to withstand steady foot traffic - and family life - for many years to come.  

Unlike machine-made, synthetic rugs, hand-tufted rugs are made by skilled artisans who uses a 'tufting tool' to punch woollen strands onto a canvas stretched over a frame. Once the rug is removed from the frame, fabric is glued to its back and the pile is trimmed to the desired length - which in this case is just the right balance between plush and practical. 

To style it, choose your fave feature colours from the Whirl rug's distinctive design and repeat them in cushions, throws, artworks and eclectic accessories throughout the room to instantly elevate your room from everyday to exceptional.
