Arguably, one of the most under-appreciated items in any living space is the rug, as it's often overshadowed by the coffee table and other statement features around the home. But if you think about it, a rug is one of the first distinct items that nods to your personal taste, making it an important element to factor in during the styling proccess. Woven and Persian rugs have had their moment for the last few seasons, but with the warmer weather upon us, and brighter interiors coming back into the foray for 2018, this season, we’re seeing Flokati rugs (a.k.a shag-look rugs) in many of our favourite homes both locally and overseas.
If Christmas has left your bank account a little empty (like it has ours) while ‘window shopping’ we stumbled across an affordable Flokati-style rug from Kmart Australia, and to be honest, we weren’t even surprised with the retail giant consistently creating homewares right before the trend explores.
