The Evolution of Rug Design

Rug making is an ancient art form, with each culture weaving its own narrative into the fabric of their designs. This evolution of rug design is a captivating journey that spans centuries, with each era and region contributing a unique thread to the tapestry of rug artistry. Today, the design world thrives on this eclectic mix, blending historical influences with contemporary fabrics and textures, creating a rich tapestry of human creativity.

Setting the Tone with Horgans Rugs

Rugs do more than cover floors; they lay the foundation of a room's aesthetic, setting the tone and creating the platform for an array of interior designs. They introduce color, pattern, and texture, adding warmth, calmness, or vibrance to any space. Understanding the pivotal role a rug plays in space design, Horgans commits to offering selections that transform spaces into artful expressions of individuality and design harmony.

Patchwork Rugs: A Tapestry of Stories

Our patchwork rugs, sourced and sewn with pieces from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran, and crafted in Turkey, are a testament to the rich heritage and intricate craftsmanship of traditional rug making. These rugs bring a piece of history into contemporary spaces, perfect for blending modern sleekness with timeless tradition.

From India: Jute and Woolen Rugs
