Intro Text (will show in Directory only):

A rug is an integral part of any interior. It can change the overall aesthetic of a space, transforming it from a great interior to a truly enviable one. Rugs can either work in harmony with the decor or they can be used as a standalone feature that sets off a space. “Often, rugs can make a bold statement by adding an element of surprise,” Source Mondial’s Martin Buchegger says. “Being able to select the colours, size, texture, pattern and design of a rug can also contribute to and reinforce the design scheme and create a more cohesive look and feel to a room.”

Rugs aren’t only used as a cohesive element or as a statement though, they’re often used to create a visual pathway or as a way to connect spaces. They can also be used to define different areas within an open plan space, and are useful for sound absorption, to lift darker areas, or simply to inject some personality into an area through the use of colour, texture or pattern.

Source Mondial is a specialist importer and manufacturer of rugs, and operates a custom service allowing clients to design bespoke rugs to suit specific spaces. Designing the perfect rug is a process though, and takes careful consideration.

“Our design service takes a consultative approach that can be broken down into several stages,” Martin says. “The first stage is to understand the design objectives so we will look at the overall concept, taking into account colour schemes, fabrics and other textiles being used, and then we work with the client to develop a design that will enhance that interior.”

Source Mondial develops initial design concepts and templates for consideration by the client, and following a review stage and further input, the design concept is finalised for approval. “At this stage, a template is available that identifies colours, fibres, manufacturing technique, design and size.”

Once each aspect is finalised, a sample is made that reflects what the final product will look like.

As part of the consultative design process, Source Mondial operates a rendering service, which allows different options to be inserted into images of the room. “It’s a great way to see how a rug or a custom-designed rug will work in the space. The process is really simple too – all we need is an image of the space, and the results are very effective. We find most customers find it very helpful in the selection or design process.”

As custom-designed rugs become more readily used, Martin says some of the most popular options at the moment are bamboo silk rugs. “These rugs were introduced to the New Zealand market about two years ago and continue to be a highly desirable choice. They have a very luxurious look and feel. Bamboo silk is very similar to natural silk, but has a much more environmentally friendly story, being derived from bamboo.”

In regards to colour, graduated colours are being used prominently, while strong and vibrant colours are often being utilised in transitional areas such as hallways or entranceways. In living areas, neutral tones are often chosen.

Source Mondial imports rugs and carpets from around the world, with the majority of its rugs originating in India, Tibet, Turkey, Iran and Pakistan.
