The Versatile Outdoor Rug

An outdoor rug is exactly what it sounds like; a soft stylish familiar place to sit when enjoying the great outdoors. This could be in the comfort of your garden, or on the top of a beautiful mountain. Whatever you plan to do this summer, an exterior rug should be you’re trusty companion.

The Garden

For many, the outside rug will provide the perfect place to sit and relax when it comes to entertaining in the garden. Our outside rugs look perfect in any green setting, and the superb range of colours available in our collection means that you can introduce intricate patterns, textiles, and style to your garden. Our outdoor rugs have been treated to outlast the British summer time and will provide a much needed resting place that has all the comfort of a soft, luxurious surface. No need to take them in when Winter strikes- simply leave them outside and brush or hose them off when there’s a gap in the weather or our beautiful summer returns.

A Beach Trip

Forget the oversized towels that blow away when a gust of wind appears, what you need is an outdoor rug to take with you to the beach. A large number of our rugs have been crafted and woven in such a way that all it takes is a little shake of the rug to dislodge any unwanted sand. No sticky wet sand on damp towels! And they can provide a wonderful area for you to enjoy the beach whilst keeping those beach towels free for drying off.

The Perfect Picnic

We all have that perfect little picnic area at the park and with the popularity of national parks in summer it can sometimes seem impossible to secure a picnic bench in time for tea and sandwiches. So take one of our large outdoor rugs with you and you will always have a perfect spot to enjoy a picnic. The durable nature of our outdoor rugs means that spills and mishaps can be easily cleaned up and bottoms can remain grass stain free.

The Happy Campers

If you have a family that just loves to camp then an outdoor rug will be a welcomed addition to your great expedition into the wilderness. Our outdoor rugs feature extra layers of padding which will ensure a comfortable surface to sit on. Exterior rugs can bring that little bit of comfort to unknown surroundings and with their lightweight nature an outdoor rug can be transported easily.

An Outdoor Rug For All The Family

Kiddie Play Time

Kids are busy little beings, they can create mess and havoc in an empty room. This means that when it comes to furniture, most parents look for hard-waring and durable additions to the home. Our outdoor rugs are manufactured to take on the mammoth task of keeping up with the kids. Whether it’s dirty footprints, spills or using the rug as a dance mat, you can be sure that our rugs can outlast any kiddie play time. All of our rugs are easy to clean and are made from materials that know how to handle wear and tear, kiddie style.

Pets Glory

As a nation of animal lovers we endure all sorts of trials and tribulations when it comes to owning a beloved pet. From scratched up furniture to bin raids and toilet roll destruction, having a pet is great for the soul but not so great for your home furnishings. It goes without saying that any addition to the home must be durable and pet friendly and with our outdoor rugs you can be sure of this. Many of our exterior rugs are made from natural fibres which wont irritate a pets sense of smell. Being easy to clean means that when Rover shakes off the mud from his fine coat, it can be wiped away from the rug, our woven rugs won’t succumb to the demands of claws, and the soft textures will appeal to your pets loving side.

The kitchen is really the heart of the home and is often the place where comfort and softer furnishings are missing.

With such a extensive range of styles and colours to choose from, you’re sure to find one that compliments your kitchen perfectly.


Often the last room before the garden, the conservatory can see a lot of footfall and the floor usually pays the price for a summer spent walking in and out of the house via the conservatory. So why not introduce the comfort and floor protection of an outdoor rug to this high traffic area?
