Our stunning inky blue and copper rug is one of our most recent success stories. Deep moody colours are undoubtedly one of the principal interior fashions for Winter 2016/17, a gorgeous palette of opulent tones, most notably midnight blues. The upcoming Winter Issue of premium textile magazine ‘Cover’ recommends rugs as the ideal way to introduce this colour to an interior, giving huge impact with minimal effort. The experts at ‘Living ect’ clearly agree, selecting our beautiful ‘Washed Denim Copper’ rug to feature in the ‘Dark Sky’ article of their January issue. We couldn’t help feeling our contemporary rug was the ideal match, with the copper highlights adding an unexpected mystique, and transforming a timeless blue to a spectacular modern combination.
Blue Contemporary Rugs in Context

The range of different interiors that can be enhanced by this exquisite rug is quite extraordinary. The subtle abstract design, the perfect strength of colour and the luxury of a metallic silk, give this rug a versatility that is rare for such a dramatic piece. The luxury furnishings store, I&JL Brown chose to frame it with bright white and coloured accents in their recent photoshoot, as pictured above, whereas a premium paint brand took more tonal approach. Either way, this contemporary rug is a sure scene stealer and is set to remain in high demand for many months to come.
Using Midnight Blue in other Furnishings
Another approach to introducing this stunning hue into your interior scheme is in the sofa. Coloured sofas are a huge trend this year, particularly in jewel tones such as emerald green and blue. Luxury fabrics such as velvet further accentuate their opulent tone. Many furnishing stores in London offer custom made sofas in a wide range of upholstery options, including Bespoke Sofa London, George Smith, and Camerich- all based on the Kings Road in Chelsea. Alternatively, try Darlings of Chelsea based in Surrey, Parsons Green and St Albans for some beautiful examples, including the Galloway Chaise sofa in Varese Denim R10.
When opting for a coloured sofa, it's best to keep your walls and floor fairly neutral. Many contemporary rug designs can be used, either in warm beige's or greys. Try something with a subtle design to add depth to your scheme without drawing attention away from the sofa. Other blue tones can be added to the scheme in the form of accessories or artwork. Metallic elements, are also a great compliment of blue, as can be seen to superb effect in this stunning living room by Taylor Howes Interiors.
