‘When in­vest­ing in a rug,’ says Monique, ‘a buyer should con­sider at least one of the fol­low­ing fac­tors: colour, pat­tern and size; the space you want to use the rug in; the at­mos­phere you want to cre­ate; what fur­ni­ture the rug will com­ple­ment; and even the sea­son.’ Main­tain­ing the rug needn’t be a back­ache, she adds. ‘Vac­uum reg­u­larly and use pro­fes­sional dry clean­ers. Blot all spills im­me­di­ately to avoid stains.’
