Just one look at these luxurious rugs and I immediately want to run my fingers through the deep pile. Manufactured in Isparta, a southern Turkish town synonymous with carpet production, these exquisite rugs are from the impressive portfolio of Stepevi, a family enterprise that was founded in 1919 in Istanbul. With a strong focus on the concept of refined modern luxury and innovative craftsmanship, the Turkish company has managed to create a decadent yet understated collection of rugs that will have no problem taking centre stage in any contemporary interior.
Stepevi’s reputation, experience and expertise in the field has lead to the company working in collaboration with award-winning and internationally acclaimed designers such as Ora Ito, who designed the Parquet rug below. This may be the most eye-catching and unusual rug in the collection but there are certainly plenty of options available, all of which add a sense of flamboyance and artistic practicality to an interior.
Do these rugs make you want to roll around on them and run your fingers through the pile too? We think they look might cosy!
Let’s get started with some styling inspiration from Urban Outfitters, a brand that offers an interesting array of wall-mounted shelving options. Many of them celebrate the best of geo style. Below we see a trio of shelving solutions, including the Bryn Mountain Display Shelf, pictured at the top right of the photo. Note how each of these shelves holds “like items,“ such as rocks, jewelry and other natural wonders. The styling of this Geo Triangle Shelf proves there’s power in empty space. You may be tempted to fill every square inch of your decorative shelving, but remember that sometimes less is more.
And who says recessed living areas need to be indoors? Your outdoor space can benefit just as much from sunken seating, as evidenced by this elegant, stone-lined patio by Dean Herald-Rolling Stone Landscapes. And for one final dose of sunken living room eye candy, feast your eyes on this over-the-top living area by Chris Barrett Designs. The former estate of Johnny Carson features giant windows overlooking a cliff in Malibu, so it’s no wonder a safe and plush sunken sofa was added to ground the space.
