{Dubai store}

The other night as I was wandering the designer boutiques of the DIFC, Dubai International Financial Center, I spotted something out of the corner of my eye- the fabulous, the ultimate, the ONE & ONLY…The Rug Company~ a U.K. based, handmade rug company with designer collections from the likes of Kelly Wearstler, Diane Von Furstenberg, Marni, Paul Smith, Allegra Hicks, Neisha Crosland,Vivienne Westwood, Nina Campbell, Designers Guild, and more.

I have loved The Rug Company for years…but I’ve never been in an actual store so as I walked through the doors for the first time, I had serious butterflies. It was like meeting my celebrity crush.

I texted my husband and told him the good news and he begged me not to buy a rug {its an addiction of mine but he obviously didn’t know the price point! }

{Diane von Furstenberg & Paul Smith}

I must admit that it was a bit hard not charge this one to the credit card~ I’ve been lusting after it for awhile now… isn’t it perfection?

So I sat for over an hour, drooling over the patterns and drilling the store manager for juicy details {by the end he decided that I was a rep from London, there to test his product knowledge}!

Did you know that they’ll custom make any pattern in ANY size or colors?

My favorite designs are by Suzanne Sharp, co-founder & creative director. Also the owner’s wife. Read more about them here. They got the idea to start the company when they were making documentaries in the middle east & India!

And I’m always a sucker for the British florals of Paul Smith.

Love Marni’s collection~ so feminine & flirty

Allegra Hicks- sleek & contemporary

And they also have wallhangings & cushions~ gorgeous.

But alas, I did not leave with a rug…but I bought a catalogue/book. It’s published every 2 years and showcases the rugs in some amazing settings- so I’ll just have to flip through my book until I can actually get one of the rugs in my house:)

Thanks for being my neighbor Rug Company, we’re going to be great friends.
