One of the trends I’ve been seeing this season in clothing has been plaid. Whether it’s in skirts, shoes, scarves or handbags, plaid seems to be one of the hot looks this fall. Well in testing out my theory that hot goes from our backs to our homes rather quickly, I’ve been checking out what the home design world has been showing for the fall. It seems that the home stores are too far behind the department stores with pillows, curtains and bedding all showing up in plaid this year. Of course I had to check out our rug selection to see what was available for the floors, and sure enough, we have some interesting and fun ways to add plaid into your home for the cool months.
One of our manufacturers that does the most with plaid is Milliken. They’ve taken this idea and come up with some really interesting and family friendly versions of plaid. One thing to note about Milliken rugs is that they are made with 100% Stainmaster nylon, so not only are they good looking, these rugs are some of the easiest to clean in the industry.
Finally, if you are looking for something a bit more simple, but still with that plaid feel to it, try Chandra’s Chelsea collection. This very simple but elegant rug is made of 100% wool and comes in a classic black and rich burgundy. Both are a straightforward way to add the plaid look to a room.
