Translated from the Sanskrit language “Artha" means meaning, sense, goal, purpose or essence and these 5 aspects are what we seek to convey through our products and philosophy. Directly reflecting the meaning of the name, our company was created with a goal and purpose: to create unique and authentic home and personal accent pieces while supporting the livelihoods and the craft of artisans in various regions around the globe.
In the case of these rugs, when we say impact, we are referring to an impact in two ways: a financial and social impact on the community with whom we produce these pieces and the design impact the rug will have on your space.
In regards to the latter, rugs add character and another dimension to any room. We can’t think of anything cozier than a soft rug underfoot when you first get out of bed in the morning or when you are relaxing at home on the weekend.
So, from using rugs at the foot of or on either side of your bed, to using them in the entrance hall or under a coffee table, we are showing you some of our favorite styling ideas. We also love to see how different rug patterns and accessories used in the same setting can do so much to influence the look of a space.
ENHANCING A READING AREA: What better way to complete a reading area than with a medium sized rug. Not only does it add texture to the space, but also doubles up as a comfortable surface to lie on while browsing magazines and sipping on a latte.
UNDER THE COFFEE TABLE: A rug under a coffee table is a must to create a cozy and finished look. On tiled or stone floors, they bring in a huge element of warmth. We love how so much character is added to a space – keep the design light for an airy feel or add some graphic patterns for a statement look. Use a larger piece to define the space and consider layering as a decorative touch.
BEDSIDE SOFTNESS: As we mentioned, there is just nothing better than stepping onto a soft, handwoven rug first thing in the morning. Our more narrow runners fit perfectly along the sides of a bed and immediately soften up your bedroom oasis.
DECORATING THAT LIVING ROOM NOOK: We all have that one space that seems a bit empty in a home. Consider decorating with a side table, add your favorite books or magazines and a few other special pieces along with a rug and soon you’ve made a lackluster corner come alive!
Add warmth and character. Define your space. Add a rug!
