Little Luxuries: Alice in Wonderland rugs

We all have much-loved favourite characters that take us back to our childhood and Alice in Wonderland is perhaps one of the most recognisable of all. Believe it or not, it’s been 150 years since Lewis Carroll first sent Alice down that rabbit hole and to celebrate this, Rug Maker have brought out a collection of rugs in her honour.

Specifically chosen by the British Library, Rug Maker were granted the license to reproduce the original artwork by John Tenniel, taken from the first edition of the book. There are two designs available – Alice herself, contemplating the mysterious ‘Drink Me’ label, and her friend the White Rabbit, resplendent in costume at the Croquet Match and complete with his trusty pocket watch.

Handwoven in the Kathmandu valley, Nepal, from 100% New Zealand wool, the monochrome designs are created by highly skilled Tibetan and Nepalese weavers who hand knot Swiss aniline dyed wool onto cotton warps and wefts. Rug Maker are supporters of GoodWeave, a global non-profit organisation which ensures that child labour is not used in the manufacturing process of these rugs.

The rugs come in a standard 120 x 100cm size, but can be made to any size or colour at your request.

What could be better than combining literary classics with interiors? Nothing, that’s what!

Decorum Loves: Argent & Sable

At Decorum, we all have our own personal sense of style – something we see as a positive, as it helps to keep things interesting, and makes for a more eclectic working space.

While we each have our favourite brands, it is rare that we fall in love with the same item at the same time. So rare, in fact, that when we all stopped at once to admire fairground inspired signs by Argent & Sable, we knew we were on to a winner.

Argent & Sable – a husband- and wife-run business, drawing on the couple’s wealth of expertise and experience in interior design – first caught our eye whilst exploring Designjunction. In among the beautiful designs that encompassed the event, Argent & Sable, with its bright colours and abundance of lights, stood out to us, and we couldn’t help but be drawn in.

Personal favourites at Decorum HQ include ‘Lust,’ ‘Love’ and ‘Get Lucky’ – all signs that we would be happy to hang in our homes, or above our desks.

In order to truly capture the fairground effect, Argent & Sable create their pieces using traditional Colourman Paints, that have a nostalgic chalky quality, and a natural beeswax to seal the paint. The frames are an eclectic mix of antique/old ornate and bespoke, frames which are painted and distressed, each creating the perfect surround for these highly sought-after, individual and unique pieces of art.

Although it could be argued that these fairground signs are best suited for a game room or bar environment, we believe that – with the right accessories and accompanying furniture – they would be the perfect addition to any room, lending a feeling of whimsy and childish charm to even the most corporate of environments.

Vintage, fun and unique, we can’t get enough of each piece, and are considering taking the plunge… Now, where to hang it?

Decorum Loves: Qubis Flipp

As big fans of clever homewares, and of alternating our personal style from time to time, we at Decorum couldn’t help but be drawn to the new ‘Flipp Table,’ from Qubis Design.

Debuted at this year’s Design Junction, and described by the brand as a ‘dual-purpose dining table,’ the Flipp is a table that rotates on a central pivot – allowing an easy transformation from formal dining experience, to fun entertaining space.

With leg frames handcrafted from mild steel, a raw, uncoated finish, and all surfaces protected by natural oils, we think this table would be the perfect addition to any modern home. We particularly like that the Formica side – or the ‘playful’ side, as we have taken to calling it – comes in so many colour options, with ‘Juicy Pink’ and ‘Boysenberry’ being personal favourites.

With such a contrast in style from one side to another, the addition of the Flipp would open up a whole world of décor ideas – a concept we can’t help but be excited by.

In fact, the more we think about it, the more we fall in love.

… We’ll take four.
