Home Decorating 1 Rug, 15 Ways: Numa

1 Rug, 15 Ways: Numa

Soft and dense with a subtle geometric pattern, this Moroccan-inspired wool rug is made for maximum comfort and looks right at home in any room.

Creative force Anne Sage (aka @citysage) designed this stylish, gender-neutral nursery in a modern style that will grow with the child. Plus, the contrast of black against white is visual stimulation for a baby’s first months.

HOME by Stamm & Black, a home furnishings shop in West Acton, Massachusetts believes that “green is a neutral.” They show this idea off to great effect in this welcoming living room where greens enliven a traditional neutral foundation.

Light and Dwell, an Oregon-based design studio, shows a softer side to industrial modern design. The Numa rug creates a soft foundation for metal and modern furnishings in a room with an epic, unobstructed view.

The design team at Atlanta’s Tunde Decor says, “Don’t be afraid to mix it up.” In this living room, rustic occasional tables cozy up to a mid-century bamboo ottoman and our Moroccan-style rug for a fresh and funky look.

In this moody corner, a Morrocan-style rug is the perfect foil to a patterned, roll-arm sofa: It is textured to the sofa’s flat-weave finish, neutral to its bold color, and oh-so-subtly patterned to its tapestry-like design.

Danielle Moss, co-Founder of the Everygirl and Anecdote, an Illinois home store, uses her living room as a laboratory for the offerings from her shop. One constant? Our Morrocan-style Numa rug, which is like a blank canvas for a rotating cast of coffee tables and accessories.

Nellie Jane Howard Ossi, a designer in her own right and the press manager at Mrs. Howard, shared this sophisticated teen’s room. Numa is one of many richly tactile textiles that make the all-neutral palette so sophisticated.

Space10 Interiors’ aptly named ‘Zen Abode’ includes a master bedroom that is a picture of quiet calm. The serene vibes are strong thanks to natural materials and welcoming textiles, like the Numa rug underfoot.

In this Brentwood bedroom, mid-century-influences furnishings support a love of books and collection of curios. The Morroccan-style rug subtly alludes to a life of travel and discovery.

The wooly Numa rug is just the dose of warmth this mountain chic living room needed to complement the stone fireplace and gray-toned floors. Colorado-based Ades Design Builders Inc. designed this room as part of a showhome built to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Colorado.

Aiming for old-fashioned, library feeling in this home, Jaimee Rose Interiors opted for hardwood floors in the bathroom. “Nothing compares to the warmth [wood] adds, it isn’t cold to stand on, and it’s very European,” Jaimee enthuses. To keep things soft, she layered a Numa rug over the floor in the dressing area.

While renovating her first home in Los Angeles, new mom Amy Kim (@homeyohmy), opted for a totally colorless bedroom design—and the results are a picture of calm. The Numa rug adds a welcome touch of texture and a hint of geometric pattern underfoot.

Peabody Interiors, a design firm and store in Milwaukee Wisconsin, used our Numa rug as the underlayer for this polished sitting area. The diamond design of the rug echoes both the windowpane patterned throw pillows and the graphic wall art.

Hannah, the Alabama mom and designer behind @thistle.harvest, switches up her living room decor often, but the wool rug, wooden bookcases, and happy houseplants are a continuing theme. She says “I’m still obsessed over this Numa Charcoal Hand Knotted rug from Annie Selke. It is even more beautiful in person and is so incredibly soft!”

Kelsey, the Des Moines photographer behind @ClassicGrayHome shows how a nature-influenced scheme of green, stone, and off-white hues creates a warm and welcoming modernism.

I am obsessed with this rug- I’m going to look into buying one! I bought a similar looking rug from a local store about a year ago, and it looks great but gets dirty incredibly fast. I’ve already had it cleaned by a rug cleaner twice. I wish I would have done more research and went with this rug instead, it seems way more durable and versatile!
