UK Flooring Direct loves to team up with some of the leading manufacturers in the world of flooring, and this time they’ve come up with a cracker as we head into SS16. Plantation has gained a reputation for delivering the very best in contemporary rug design, so come with us as we guide you through the latest collections now on offer at the UKFD site.
A brand with 80 years of industry experience, whether it’s classic, traditional, contemporary, geometric, Aztec, Scandi – any request you have to throw at the Plantation portfolio, you can guarantee it has a show-stopping retort.
Let’s get straight to business with a Plantation best-seller in Purity, a fabulous option for use in busy family spaces; this is the kind of rug you can throw down without fearing slips and spills, the super soft polypropylene fibres boasting easy-care credentials for extra peace of mind and sumptuous underfoot comfort. Purity is accessible to absolutely any budget, so why not introduce a couple to your home! This collection is everything that’s great about the Plantation brand, all worked into a beautiful, durable and above all else affordable package.
If instead you prefer the unique lustre of wool, Plantation again has the answer in its Royale collection. Wool rugs can be expensive but Plantation bucks the trend and has introduced this affordable hand-carved wool collection. Available in 13 of the most vibrant colour ways from Terracotta and Chocolate to the simpler Beige and Ivory tones, these are great for adding contrast to any existing flooring.
For a more practical twist on the design-led rug, Plantation boasts an array of thick-pile shaggies to keep your toes warm during the long winter nights. A particular favourite of ours is Beauticious with its subtle pastel hues, these rugs boasting a high pile height for an exceptional feel as you glide through the living room. A truly luxurious texture, these rugs would act as a great addition to any hygge home.
Chances are Plantation can meet all your style expectations, even if you have a preconceived idea of what your next underfoot purchase should look like. Plantation keeps itself across all of the latest themes and trends, the end result spectacular designs such as Geometric and the zany weave of Aztec, both showcased above. Rest assured there are a host of other colours on offer if these beauties don’t tickle your fancy. We picked Geometric in more subtle colour ways as we felt this allowed the chevron pattern to do the talking, but design is subjective so you may disagree!
Another trend we can’t seem to escape at the moment is the Scandi look, and we’re quite glad of this! If you agree that Scandi represents the height of design sophistication, then look no further than Plantation’s Benni Ivory collection, as found above. These stunning rugs are available in both large and small diamond designs (the intricacy of other prints in the room will dictate which choice is best for you) and come in a heavy pile weight, the like of which commonly found in Scandinavian climes.
Last, but by no means least, it’s worth exploring Plantation offerings for those looking to invest a little more in a statement piece. Impressions and Bricklane represent premium rug design at its very best, the epitome of vibrancy and colour clarity in two contrasting contemporary designs. A feast for the eyes, Impressions is hand-knotted in the finest art silk, while Bricklane arrives in exceptional felted wool.
The collections we’ve covered are by no means exhaustive of the Plantation range, in fact there are no fewer than 193 products to discover at UK Flooring Direct’s easy-to-navigate website. If you’re on the hunt for statement introductions then prepare to be wowed with this mix of statement contemporary pieces and twists on established classics.
