Buyer Amy Kawamoto on Our Favorite Affordable Rugs
CL: Talk to us about Marielle.
AK: Isn’t she gorgeous? The Marielle Rust Medallion Rug is a World Market exclusive. This medallion motif is found in traditional, hand knotted rugs from India. We developed the rug as an extension of what you usually see in these traditional rugs by printing the design to create a less formal rug and pairing it with this striking pop of color.
CL: What’s the one rug trend that you’re seeing that is still going strong?
AK: We’re seeing a lot of the washed, distressed look nowadays; the Marielle Rust Medallion Rug has that timeworn look. It’s screen printed on a rug base and handwoven, mixed with jute and cotton. This distressed look has a way of cozying up a room that could use more of a lived-in look that is still polished and elegant.
CL: What’s the one defining quality of our newer, printed and hand knotted rugs?
AK: Our rugs are woven using only the best-quality natural fibers: wool, cotton, jute. Also, our rugs are incredibly unique in style and design. We don’t restrict our creativity in developing an eclectic rug assortment for World Market.
CL: Our most versatile rug would be….
AK: Any one of our natural fiber rugs! We have a basket weave collection that comes in a variety of warm tones that are great for any season, and they come in the larger sizes of 8’x 10′ and 9′ x 12′.
