Announcing Farrow & Ball rugs handmade by The Rug Company

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.
