Floral designs can look incredibly cute around the house but it’s best to try and avoid too much in the way of chintzy styling. Chintz is great in vintage cafes and shops but it doesn’t necessarily work around the house. Fortunately not all floral designs fit into the chintzy bracket. The design teams at some of the world’s best rug companies are very good when to getting the most out of floral designs and resisting the less tasteful side of things.

Brink & Campman, Louis de Poortere, Sanderson, Harlequin Scion, Nourison – the list of high end rug manufacturers is a long one and although they all bring something a little bit different to the table, you can generally rely on them to create really attractive styles that are cool, contemporary and refined.

This definitely goes for their exploits in the design of floral modern rugs. There’s a real art to using colour and floral patterning effectively and this is something the professionals have really got down to a T. Browsing each collection is likely to throw up a whole host of possible floral selections that might go with your surroundings.
