Announcing Farrow & Ball Rugs Handmade By The Rug Company

Written on 12th February 2019

We’re excited to share that Farrow & Ball has partnered with The Rug Company to create 12 beautiful handloom rugs that perfectly complement the Farrow & Ball palette. With one accent and one neutral rug for the six Farrow & Ball neutral groups, each is crafted by a team of expert weavers in Nepal using only the finest quality yarns of Tibetan wool and silk – and they’re oh-so-soft! We’ve gathered the most inspiring colourways, share the stories behind them and suggested which paint hues to pair them with for an effortlessly cohesive look in your own home.


Rug: Holland Stone, Walls: Farrow & Ball Railings
Rug: Portland Pink, Walls: Farrow & Ball All White

THE TRADITIONAL NEUTRALS


Holland Stone is a warm and sophisticated neutral inspired by the Georgian townhouses surrounding The Rug Company’s home in Holland Park, London. Try pairing with Farrow & Ball Lime White, Off-White, Old White and Slipper Satin.

THE CONTEMPORARY NEUTRALS


Restful Portland Pink, with its subtle blush tone, subtly adds colour without stealing the show. It’s inspired by an elegantly painted pink villa on Portland Road, London. Try pairing with Farrow & Ball All White, Strong White, Skimming Stone and Elephant’s Breath.


Rug: Kent Green, Walls: Farrow & Ball Dimity and Joa’s White
Rug: Clarendon, Walls: White Tie

THE YELLOW BASED NEUTRALS


The warmest of all the neutrals, the classic beige of Clarendon creates a cosy atmosphere in homes both old and new, enhancing south facing light or bringing warmth to cooler rooms. Try pairing with Farrow & Ball White Tie, New White, Matchstick and String.

THE RED BASED NEUTRALS


An uplifting hue that works well in both modern and traditional homes, Kent Green evokes the leafy Garden of England, while nodding to The Rug Company’s longstanding Caroline Kent. Try pairing with Farrow & Ball Pointing, Dimity, Joa’s White and Oxford Stone.


Rug: Melrose Yellow, Walls: Wevet, Woodwork: Lamp Room Gray
Rug: Wooster, Walls: Pavilion Gray

THE EASY NEUTRALS


Taking inspiration from the sunny climes of Los Angeles, the vibrant chartreuse of Melrose Yellow creates an optimistic colour statement in any home. Try pairing with Farrow & Ball Purbeck Stone, Ammonite, Wevet and Cornforth White.

THE ARCHITECTURAL NEUTRALS


Wooster takes its inspiration from the ironwork of Wooster Street in New York’s Soho district, the downtown home of The Rug Company. A strong, cool tone with its roots in dark blue. Try pairing with Dimpse, Pavilion Gray, Blackened, Manor House Gray.
