Cushy job: The Rug Company

The Rug Company is the iconic UK based company who believes that every item they make are destined to be a family heirloom.

They mix traditional techniques with contemporary design.  

Point in case the Home Cushion by Committee.

And here it is in lounge!  Yes my lounge!  AND THERE ARE ONLY THREE IN THE WORLD TO DATE!

But sadly it's not mine to cry into - I stole it from my friend Charlie who has a very generous UK based sister who understands the theory of "Consumable goods help with emotional pain"  It's her gift to her sister getting through 8000 odd earthquakes.  Awwwwwww.

It was nice to have on my person for a quick photo shoot.

Giving it back was a bit like this:

Me: Here you go Charlie - it's amazing in real life! The quality, the details, the weight, the colours!

Charlie:  You can let go now...

Charlie:  Alex, let go!

(Alex runs away and hides behind her car)

Charlie:  I can still see you, you know.

Alex:  Go away - I've gone home.

Suffice to say I gave it back.  


  1. HI Alex - oh so divine! But Christmas is JUST around the corner. Surely someone who REALLY loved you would buy you one?? Haha. They must be horrendously expensive - so much more reason to not give it back!! Sorry the hiding thing didn't work for you this time.... Rache x
