RUG MEASURING GUIDE
Use the rug to help ground the furniture. It all comes down to personal preference but we recommend that the rug extends several inches outwards from the edge of the furniture with the front legs resting on the rug. This gives a sense of coherence in the room and makes the space feel well-considered. Alternatively, placing all the feet on the rug creates more of a self-contained zone.
Low-pile rugs such as flatweaves and hand-knotted pieces with a short pile (usually 3-4mm) are best here so chairs can slide in and out without catching. The rug should also be large enough so that the chairs do not fall off the edge when pulled out. A rule of thumb is to measure the dining table and add approximately 150cm (59”) to the length and/or width, depending on the shape of the table and layout of the room.
The most popular options are to either sit a large rug underneath the whole bed (bearing in mind a large proportion will be covered) or to opt for a runner on one of both sides of the bed. In either case, there should be a small gap between the side tables and the edge of the rug, still ensuring that there is some rug to land on when getting out of bed. As a relatively low-traffic area, there is an opportunity in bedrooms to use more delicate and lustrous fibres such as natural or bamboo silk to add texture and opulence underfoot.
Open plan areas
Rugs are a great way of zoning an open-plan or double-fronted space into more distinct areas. Complement abstract designs with geometric, plain with patterned — or even use the same design in both areas for added impact. As long as you are working in the same tones, the space will feel cohesive overall. Scale is also especially important here in retaining the balance. Identify small, medium and large scales of pattern in the space and use them together cohesively to keep a sense of harmony.
Thin, sketched lines form the shape of abstract hills for a soothing and elegant design.

Every Jennifer Manners rug is the result of expert design and a high level of careful craftsmanship. Our tufted rugs are made by hand in our dedicated weaving centre in Bhadohi, India. This rug style is thick and luxurious, with a dense pile that looks like a hand-knotted rug. Each piece is crafted using a tufting tool where millions of wools are delicately pulled through a canvas and then secured on the back with latex. We use the finest New Zealand wool for its inherent suppleness, strength and pure white colour which, when dyed, ensures the richest and most vivid hues. As with our hand-knotted style, bamboo silk can be added to our tufted designs to create a more formal, sophisticated look.
