Thanks to all of you we had the most incredible rug launch day! The Chris, Francis, and Humphrey collections are the perfect additions to the other four rug collections we have with Loloi… For a total of 7 rug collections! I’m just so thrilled you all seem to love them as much as we do.
Of course I had the most fun playing musical rugs around the house, especially since these rugs have been in the works for a year now. Seeing it all come together is one of those pinch-me moments. There’s more rug content to come, but here’s a look at all the new rugs around our home!
For the dining room I wanted a rug that had a lot of different colors so it would disguise any spills. The Humphrey rug is perfect for that. If you have kids or pets, you can rest easy with this rug. It’s going to clean up beautiful, but will also keep those expected stains nice and camouflaged.
Another noteworthy Humphrey trait is it’s also a more budget friendly rug so I’m not worried about it being around food. The Humphrey collection gets major bonus points for being extremely soft. This is Loloi’s CloudPile weave and it really does feel like a cloud. Polly literally keeps getting out of her chair at dinnertime just to lay on the rug. She asked if she could sleep on it! I’d say that means it’s kid approved.
This scene is just dripping with fall. Next week we plan to do another Mixing and Matching Rugs post on pairing rugs but here’s a little peak. These collections just go so well together. Let’s step into the living room!
This was the first rug of ours that we got, so it’s been in here for a couple of weeks. I never intended for it to stay in here but I just had to unroll it and see. I originally intended to put the cream/black square rug from the Francis collection, but once I unrolled it, I loved it. It’s very tone-on-tone with the green/blue Pigeon paint color on the walls. And the texture of this weave is unreal!!! Such high quality.
Next year we’re planning a complete remodel for this room so it’s hard to even know if I’ll end up swapping in a different rug. I guess for now it’s just nice to have fun and try on some different rugs in here.
I don’t want to say it because I don’t want to jinx it, but this is the best version of the study yet. The beige charcoal of this rug is the most popular rug from all three collections but I had to mix it up and go for the greener tone. I can’t even tell you how inspired by this space I am now.
There’s this beautiful juxtaposition happening between the organic nature of the mural and the geometric rug. I’m digging it and I’m actually thinking of simplifying this room even more now. Maybe lose the mirror?
This shot is just *chef’s kiss. I think it really highlights the green tones in the rug.
Speaking of green tones…
One thing to note is that the hallways in our house are shockingly wide–like 5 feet wide! Runners tend to feel a little skinny in our large hallways, BUT I just had to roll this out. This green rug is one of my favorites from the Francis collection. My prediction with colored rugs is similar to what I see happening with colored walls. I feel like we went really neutral with our walls and paint colors, and now the pendulum is swinging the other way. People want color on their walls now! I think the same goes for furniture and rugs. We’ve done neutral, and now people are starting to go back to color.
To me, a colorful rug signifies someone who’s bold and not afraid to take risks. If that’s you, we should be friends.
Lastly, but certainly not least is this Chris runner! Similar to my Chris, this runner has the power to change the whole vibe of the kitchen. It went from heavy and bold, to very orderly and light. That’s the power of a rug (and the power of Chris). Equally important to the aesthetic, is these rugs are 100% wool! So they’re stain resistant and you shouldn’t be afraid to put one in your kitchen. Really soft underfoot.
What do you want to see?
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

The next project we’re checking off our 2023 project list is the mudroom! This used to be the laundry room until we built out a much bigger, better laundry room upstairs. So, in the meantime, this space has been exclusively Cricket’s room. Cricket will still have a special space here, but we’re transforming this dingy […]
