One of my favourite aspects of our business is discovering exciting new brands and concepts to share with our clients and all of you. One such company that we stumbled upon earlier this year at the Maison et Objet show in Paris was the Spanish label, Lorena Canals. We instantly fell in love with their collection of rugs that are as stylish as they are practical. These beauties are machine washable. At home. In your very own washing machine.
Each Lorena Canals rug is handmade by artisans in India using all-natural cotton to ensure it stands the test of time when it comes to wear and tear. They’re colored using natural dyes so they are entirely safe for the youngsters. In addition to washable rugs, Lorena Canals has expanded their line to include baskets, blankets, cushions and wall decor.
Shortly after returning from Paris, we started to include the rugs in some of our rooms designs and our clients love them. Being fully washable, they’re particularly well suited to any space that accommodates small people – you know, the messy ones. We’ve loved using them in both bedrooms and playrooms. At first we shipped a few in ourselves, but we quickly realised that Dubai needed these rugs to be available locally – and it would certainly make our lives easier – so we introduced the team at Lorena Canals to one of our favourite local retailers, The Bowery Company. Fast forward few months and we are pleased to report that first shipment of Lorena Canals rugs and accessories are available online and can be at your door within days!
