Creative Rug Installation

Posted in Blog

Tomorrow is Earth Day, and it is a great time to think about ways to “go green.” Part of being environmentally-friendly is decreasing the amount of goods that we go through during a lifetime. It takes resources and energy to create any product, so if you can invest in high-quality, long-lasting items for your home, your environmental impact over time will be much less.

It’s also important to be creative in using things that are already manufactured. How can an item be altered or re-purposed to give it new life and allow it to go on fulfilling a function, rather than taking up space in a landfill?

This project we did for a client is a great example of creative re-use. We fabricated these rugs years ago for the client’s summer home on Cape Cod. Recently, the client needed to downsize. She relocated to a senior facility in Connecticut and the new home was required to have wall to wall carpet. What was going to happen to those gorgeous rugs?

Fortunately, the client’s interior designer, Sandra  Tuthill of Sandra J. Tuthill Interior Design, came up with a fabulous solution to incorporate the rugs into the new home. Colony Rug was called upon to install the existing area rugs into wall to wall carpet in the new home. Our installer was able to place the rugs into various locations in the home, pleasing the client and allowing the rugs to enjoy a new life in a new home. Take a look at some more photos of the project, below.

Whether you are looking for beautifully crafted rugs, wall to wall carpet installation, or a truly one-of-a-kind look like the one we created for this client, Colony Rug is here to serve you!
