I've had my eye on rugs lately, because I've desperately been in need for Aspen and for NYC. I'm a solve-it-all-with-a-rug kinda girl, and Tad's finally coming around to the luxurious nature of having rugs in unexpected rooms - like the middle of the kitchen (a very strong win for me b/c of early and adamant doubts from him which turned into full adoration).
I'm particularly feeling good lately about vintage rugs because it's so important we use things that are already here instead of making more. It's a priority for me in 2020 to reconcile what I do for a living (furnish homes with pretty stuff) with what the next generation needs (us to make less new stuff).
Vintage rugs will be a big focus for Furbish this year - because I believe that they can help you make your home feel cozy and personalized without a huge environmental impact. There are still 39533 steps that I need to wrap my head around (how to execute) to do my part in not adding to the stress our plant is under. I'm taking it one step at a time, led by a commitment to do better with my footprint, personally and as a company, while continuing to believe in the power of a beautiful space to make us happier.
Pretty pink rugs, created by artisans over 40 - 50 years ago, are an easy way to feather your nest, and by shopping vintage, they're a good way to do the most without taking the most. Here are a few from our latest batch that are particularly good-looking.
