Recreate Vanity Fair at home

 If you have been hooked on the new TV Drama Vanity Fair, chances are that as well as the storyline, you will be lapping up the fabulous costumes, homes and decor.

The book is set between 1810-1820  when George IV was Prince Regent - hence it's known as the Regency period.  This is just before Queen Victoria and all those straight laced Victorian morals were imposed - and for now at least, British society was more open and less inhibited.

Due to growing trade links with the rest of the world, there was lots of consumer choice when it came to interior design and homeowners could even browse through forerunners of the modern catalogue using pattern books. 

Harmony and symmetry were the order of the day and people were becoming very interested in nature and how they interacted with it.  

Popular colours were burgundy, sage green and blue grey and interestingly these colours are being replicated by modern pain manufacturers today. 

Wallpaper was imported from the Far East so anything with a Chinosierie feel to it would be in keeping and this love of all things Oriental was also replicated on the floor.   Most homes would have wooden floors although the grander houses would boast stone or marble floors.

While we can't help you with the wallpaper or furniture - as the rug retailer that is synonymous with traditional rugs, FrithRugs is the only place to shop for your Oriental rug. As well as a great choice of design,  many of our Chinese rugs come in a variety of sizes and shapes including circular, octagonal and even half moon.

Order your personalised rug now in time for Christmas

Christmas will be here sooner than you think and it's never too early to start planning, especially if you are thinking of a personalised gift for your children, grandchildren, nephews or nieces.   

Personalising a child’s room is very popular.  From a name plate on the door to a large letter on a shelf, individual accessories will stand the test of time which is why personalised rugs are also some of our best sellers.  

Customers can add any name to our select rug collection and the names, which can be a first name, family name or even a nick name, can be added in a straight line or a semi-circle and will make a unique gift for a nursery, kids or teenager's room.   Personalised rugs are also a good idea if you have children sharing a bedroom as they can help mark out ‘territory’ and hopefully stop sibling arguments. 

And the reason we are raising the topic of Christmas in September is because personalised kids rugs can take between 10 - 14 weeks to make and so you need to order now to get them delivered in time for Christmas. 

Of course, you may not want to personalise your kids rugs and if this is the case we have lots of fabulous kids designs available in stock.  From numbers to cars - from footballs to boats - from fairies to flowers and from butterflies to princesses - you are sure to find a design that suits your little one.

Quality is obviously important and our rugs are 100% wool, handmade in India and are exclusive to FrithRugs.  Our stock rugs are available as a 1.22m x .76m sized rug and retail at £79.  Our personalised rugs start from £79.00 for a 0.90 x 0.60m rug.

Feeling heavenly with our Palette collection

The painterly tones found in the swirling colours of this rug range is reminiscent of a painter's palette.  These area rugs made in Turkey convey all the movement of the skies and are the ideal accessory when you want your rug to be the focal point of a room.  They are also very hard wearing and easy to clean.

Dynamic rugs

Another striking design can be found in our Dynamic rugs which boast daring 3D-like designs.  Hand tufted from a sumptuous wool blend and woven with gently shimmering silk-like fibres, these radiant  rugs create an amazing sense of depth and texture.
