It’s simply the best way to start and finish your day.
Secondly, a really decent sofa is indispensable for comfort at home. Buy well and your sofa should last 10–20 years, depending on whether you have children and pets. If you share your home with either of these, you’re definitely better off choosing a sofa in a hard-working fabric and in a dark colour.
And thirdly, you really know when you’ve grown up when you invest in – not buy – a quality rug. Heck, if you buy well enough, your rug can actually appreciate in value! Obviously I’m referring to an antique rug that is hand woven in pure silk or wool.
Essentially there are two types of rugs, machine made and hand woven rugs. An easy way to spot a machine-made rug is by examining the fringe. If it is sewn onto the rug, the rug is machine-made.
With a handmade rug, the fringe is actually the warp strings and as such, the fringe is an integral part of the rug, rather than an added ornamentation.
