Dhurrie Rugs


Rug above is available through Dash and Albert; rug below is from Wisteria.





A reader contacted me in search of a bold striped dhurrie rug similar to the one seen in the island home of Bunny Williams and her antique dealer husband, John Rosselli. (Shown above in Fritz von der Schulenberg's photo for Town & Country.) Wisteria and Dash and Albert offer these in great color combinations. The flatwoven rugs are reversible and said to be highly durable.

Thanks friendly reader, CSS, for the Dash and Albert reminder!

Be sure to use a non-slip backing - as they have a mind of their own.

Dash and Albert make great looking and affordable ones too!

William Sonoma Home had some at one point. Not sure if they still do. Great look!

Is this room not the height of perfection? The throw over the sofa, the ScALE of the sofa, the rug in browns, the garden stool in blue and white, the scale of the prints (I assume there's another on the right side), the scale of the french mouton leg chair, the color of the coffee table vs. the color of the french chair vs. the color of the rug. Absolute perfection. I think this is her best room, ever except of course, the huge barn on her country estate. Thanks for allowing me to go on and on.

So happy to have been a help - I Dash and Albert in my mud room and kitchen and am so happy (they wash incredibly well). Thanks, Courtney and have a great weekend!

I found a blue and white dhurrie from a Washington Post article in February of this year. It was about people decorating their homes like the one in the movie "Something's Gotta Give". Just do a search on "Something's Gotta Give rug" and you'll find several places that offer cotton striped dhurries.

Yes, the dhurrie is a great rug. I found a company www.maharajatent.com which makes custom indian dhurries. Custom designs and colors!
