Matchmakin­g in the world of rugs

- - John McKerchar, director, Turnberry Rug Works Ltd.

There is a move towards sustainabl­e fibres such as wool. Because of wooden and tiled flooring the size of rugs or area carpets is greater. Wool has many advantages in ease of maintenanc­e and hard wearing which fits into the trend of paying a little more but keeping the product for much longer. We have recently made rugs for the First Minister’s office at the Scottish Parliament; a Michelin-starred restaurant in the Netherland­s, Glenmorang­ie Distillery in Tain, the British Embassy in Tirana, Albania, and many individual homes throughout the UK who have found it an easy and enjoyable experience to contact us and design the perfect rug for their room in terms of size, design and colours. Very often rugs will last longer than a trend in colour so getting the right colour to match with the dominant colours in a room is a greater factor along with bespoke sizing and shape.’
