Round Area Rugs

A popular choice for the home or office



Round Area Rugs
You will find that the majority of rug designs are available as a round rug, from the traditional French styles of Abusson rugs and Savonnerie to the intricate weave or Chinese and Persian varieties.

As far as we know, round rugs started to be produced in the 1500’s. Indeed, the oldest rug of this shape that we know about dates back to this time and originates from Egypt. Its design is known as Mamluk, which consists of a series of complex geometric medallion-like shapes.

In this day and age, of course, round rugs have become extremely popular both in the home and the office, as well as in many shops and stores.

A round rug is often preferred to a square or rectangular rug because its shape is, by definition, free of corners and can therefore be much softer on the eye. The harshness of square corners can look out of place in a lot of the designs associated with today’s modern living. Indeed, the increasingly popular Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui, which believes there to be a direct link between the positioning and physical nature of our home’s possessions with our wealth, health and fortune, promotes the use of curved shapes rather than harsh corners. This is because the philosophy is all about the smooth flow of Chi, the Earth’s life force and energy, around a space. Too many corners and the flow is blocked.

So if you want to increase your chances of winning the lottery, make sure you get yourself a round rug!!
