Stepevi rugs

December 2, 2011

I first specified Stepevi rugs for a project we completed in Chiswick 3 years ago. I was looking for a rug for a large garden room that would add some colour and texture against a very white limestone floor. We used a short pile Touch Me rug and mixed two different tones of yarn. The rug was designed to complement furniture from Ligne Roset and cabinets from B&B Italia.

The Touch Me rug is available in the short pile version shown and also a long pile version. The yarn is available in a choice of 75 colours and you can combine either two or three different tones to create your own bespoke rug.

The Harvest rug is based on the idea of creating vintage styled rugs in very contemporary colours. The process starts by collecting vintage Anatolian rugs that are then exposed to Mediterranean sun and humidity. This gives them a faded and battered look. The rugs are then re-dyed in contemporary colours, cut into smaller pieces and hand stitched together. We have recently specified this for a clients apartment in Chelsea for their hallway. The colours will work perfectly in their hallway as it is painted  in a warm grey.

A new addition to the range is the Tweed Linen rug inspired by fashionable tweed fabrics. Made from 80% tweed and 20% viscose they are tufted in cut and loop pile and have three different pile heights. This rug is available in seven colours and in any size. The different pile heights help to create a 3D effect.

Another new addition is the Granite Silk rug. This is a 100% silk rug so it is super soft to the touch. The gradients in the rug give a wonderful texture and would add subtle detail to any interior. This is a very top end rug so you need to choose the location carefully. If you have wooden floors in your bedroom it would add the perfect luxurious finish to your private space.

You will find Stepevi rugs all over the world. Celine have used their rugs in their Bruton Street store in London. The W Hotel in Istanbul has a range of rugs in the communal areas of the hotel.  Christian Dior used Stepevi rugs in their store in Las Vegas. Have a look at their website, then take a visit to their beautiful showroom on the Kings Road in Chelsea to plan your own rug.

      My clients instantly fell in love with the Harvest rug, can’t wait for it to arrive now.

    Beware of over-trendy rugs. The patchwork vintage pieces maybe fun today but how will they clean?…The silk rug is lovely–go for quality–always.

      Agree on over-trendy rugs, especially if they are very expensive. The patchwork rug cleans very well and is ageing beautifully!

    Hi there. I saw a Stepevi rug on display in Selfridges and have tracked it down to being by Stepevi – http://pinterest.com/housesngardens/project-delicious-rugs-carpet/. They may have just what I want but their website is very unclear on costs. Before I contact them/trip down to the King’s Road, do you know roughly what price bracket they are in – more Rug Company or John Lewis? Many thanks.

      Probably between the two. It really depends on the size and material used. Their Kings Road showroom is very extensive and I recommend a visit.
