When we bought the house we live in now 15 years ago, we treated our selves to a Roger Oates raspberry striped rug. It was a big purchase at the time as we were re-storing a Victorian house from two rental flats back into a family home, but the rug was worth every penny, such was it’s quality and beauty.
I have just seen some shots of the new checked rugs and runners that the company are now producing, in addition to their trade mark stripes and they too make a lovely classic addition to any home. I’m not saying you can’t accessorise cheaply with some items, but good flooring is essential and will stand the test of time, long after the cheaper versions have passed their sell by date.
Some of the new striped designs inspired by the Serengeti Africa.
