Perfect for high-traffic areas like a kitchen, Ruggable's innovative two-part rug system includes a grip pad and rug cover that will stand up to spills because the rug cover is waterproof and machine washable. Both pet- and kid-friendly, even Ruggable's 8x10 size rugs can fit in a standard washing machine.
A pair of eye-catching globe pendant lights hang over the long kitchen island with gray marble countertop. The sharp lines of the design compliment the transitional style, and the light color palette gives a bright overall look. A rug runner adds color and warmth to soften the floor space.
Look for flat-woven wools with tight weaves, since they're strong enough to handle high-traffic areas. "White was incorporated into this space to make it bright and refreshing when you walk in. We knew we had to add a darker tone into the stair runner. The rug is hand-knotted wool made by J.D. Staron, the Gopala Collection, and looks like linen so it adds an unexpected design detail to the stairs, pulling in the turquoise tone from the light fixture," says Caroline Grant and Dolores Suarez of Dekar Design.
This blue-and-white, Shibori-style rug can actually be put in a standard washing machine. The brand Ruggable makes an innovative two-piece rug system that includes a bottom grip pad and a rug cover, which can be washed.
