Monday, November 26, 2018 1:00:14 PM Europe/Paris

With Christmas and New Year just around the corner, it's never been more important to start thinking about preparing your home for the most festive and cheerful time of the year. Maybe you've already decorated your Christmas tree and prepared your home for the holidays, but there are always some finishing touches you can add to turn your home into a true Christmas miracle.

Coziness, warmth and family gatherings are all that Christmas is about and these are also the things Sukhi stands for, which means that Sukhi and Christmas go hand in hand. Keep reading to find out how you can prepare your home for the happiest season this year with a little help from Sukhi.

Touch of Elegance

Perfect to go under the sparkling Christmas tree, Beni Ourain rugs are exceptionally soft and carry a great sense of luxury. They always take a fair share of attention. This is precisely what you need during the holidays season.elegant-moroccan-beni-ourain-rug-beside-the-christmas-tree-in-the-living-room

Intriguing design with a medium diamond pattern in the middle of the rug is sure to impress and bring something magical to any room. Magical moments, filled with warmth and coziness are what these rugs are all about.

Peace and Relaxation

Holidays are the time for our families and for indulging ourselves more than ever. What better way to create that soothing and calming effect than a beautiful and unique rug.

This rug will put a smile on your face whenever you look at it. Placing it somewhere near the Christmas tree is recommended. That way it will be in the center of attention and radiate it's warmth and coziness all around.

Neutral or Vibrant

Neutrals are the ideal way to add some texture and layers to any space. A braided wool rug in gentle grey and white tones will add a unique richness to your home and remind you of your favorite hand-knitted sweater. Nothing is more charming and warmer than wool in winter. And the woolen rug is the pure proof for this.

If you're more into setting a festive mood, an overdyed patchwork rug with its striking, bold colors will speak to you more than anything. For us, holidays are painted in red, white and blue and that's why an exciting blue nuance rug seems like a lovely option. Just make sure that it goes well with the other colors in your home.

Giving and receiving gifts is the whole point of holidays. Sukhi rugs will bring you great joy in more than one way. When you purchase our rug, you're helping our artisans support their families and community and securing them a better quality of life.

Turn your bathroom into a cozy haven with Sukhi rugs

Monday, November 12, 2018 2:13:44 PM Europe/Paris

When decorating or remodeling every room in the home, most people often don't think that much of their bathroom. But just consider it for a brief moment. Bathrooms are important. They are our sanctuaries, places where we take long baths with bubbles, places that should feel relaxing and calm and where we can recharge our batteries.

Therefore, you should make your sanctuary the coziest place where you can unwind. Don't worry, you can still have a lovely bathroom even without spending too much time on styling it. A warm and soft rug can be a life changer that can literally become the life of your bathroom and here at Sukhi, we have a few ideas that we think you'll love.

However, before deciding on styling one of our high-quality rugs in your bathroom, note that these aren’t bathroom rugs per se. The material from which they are made doesn’t take humidity, let alone direct exposure to water and moisture very well. Water and moisture can damage your beautiful rug and you don’t want this to happen.

That being said, feel free to style Sukhi rugs in your bathroom, but always remove them when you’re taking a shower or a bath and only put them back when your bathroom is completely dry.

With this in mind, here are our styling ideas.

Jungalow Bathroom

A rug made of thousands of tiny felt balls with unique patterns is sure to make your bathroom snuggly heaven. Go for the darker color rug as a contrast to the white walls or any other pastel color walls for the matter effect. A rug in a bold, darker color is a great match with big plants. This combination brings the dose of mystery and jungle vibes right in your bathroom.

Before you style your rug this way, make sure to move the plants far from the rug and place them on top of the stools to avoid that the water leaks from potted plants and damages your rug.

Once you’ve secured that your rug is safe from water and moisture, light a few aromatic candles and appreciate how exotic your bathroom looks. In case a dark rug is not your cup of tea, you can design your own custom rug in brighter colors. Because with Sukhi rugs, even the sky isn't the limit.

Stones in the Bathroom

Not literally, don't worry. The last thing you want to do after a long day is walking on the pebbles. That's why our stone rugs only resemble the real stones. In reality, they are the softest thing you have ever stepped on. Therefore, they are the ideal choice for a bathroom rug.

Again, a few candles to spice up the atmosphere and make it more romantic are very well welcomed. Besides that, our rug will take care of everything else, including making your bathroom look like a modern industrial style fairytale.

Once again, when you decide to shower or take a bath, don’t forget to remove your rug from the bathroom to avoid damaging it due to increased humidity and water. And don’t worry, you can bring your rug back in the bathroom once it gets completely dry.

Traditional or Eclectic Bathroom

Some people appreciate the tradition and we understand that. After all, some things are just timeless. With that in mind, our vote for the rug in a classic style bathroom always goes to Beni Ourain rugs. These rugs are the best choice for bathrooms that strive to be traditional oasis without experimenting too much or giving in to modern trends.

cozy-moroccan-beni-ourain-sukhi-rug-for-traditional-bathrooms

On the other spectrum are people who prefer colors, a mix of styles, bringing art pieces and everything that crosses their mind into the bathroom, so their style goes more toward eclectic. For them, we have rugs in all the existing colors, but our personal favorite are the patchwork rugs. Traditional by design, modern by color, it will indulge your senses and make your bathroom a rainbow wonderland.

As long as you keep your Sukhi rugs far from any moister, humidity or water sources and remove them from the bathroom when you are showering or taking a bath, everything will be fine. Although they aren’t bathroom rugs in particular, they are a wonderful choice design-wise. Which idea of styling a Sukhi rug in a bathroom do you like the most?

Refresh your eclectic home decor with Sukhi rugs

Monday, October 29, 2018 4:55:00 PM Europe/Paris

What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of the eclectic design? This style gives so much freedom and so many options in creating the home you've been dreaming about. The fact that it allows you to mix the old and new styles, textures, trends and colors is what made eclectic decor insanely popular in the first place, especially in recent years.

Although it might seem that everything is allowed, eclectic doesn't mean you should just throw any piece of furniture or fabric on the floor or bed and consider yourself an eclectic interior specialist. Eclectic decor is art on its own and it can be as simple to turn your home into an eclectic fairytale as choosing one bold statement piece that will be the focal point of the room and allow it to shine. We recommend that piece to be one of the Sukhi rugs.

Living Room or Salon

Eclectic doesn't need to be overwhelming. Quite the contrary, minimalistic approach with accessories, ornaments and furniture that represent the combination of traditional and modern can help you spice up any space. Add a touch of eclectic into your living room by including a beautiful, modern Beni Ourain rug whose design has intriguing tribal symbols in a dark natural color.

The symbolism behind these Moroccan rugs has a long tradition, yet, they fit modern age eclectic decor perfectly. Both antique and modern at the same time, Beni Ourains are eclectic at their best. Go for the large size rug with a striking pattern that can be the statement point of the room.

tribal-pattern-beni-ourain-rug-in-an-eclectic-decor-living-room

Remember, you want it to really pop from the rest of the space. Add some vintage style sofas and angle them to point to a fireplace. In addition, put a big, modern painting on the wall. Voilà – eclectic style living room!

Bedroom

The bedroom should be colorful. This is even more important in eclectic design. Break the rules, play with multiple cheerful colors, but remember to stay true to one shade that should be dominant. Other colors should be there too, but they serve more as accents that highlight the basic nuance.

Vibrant, purple felt ball rug will be just the cherry on the top of your eclectic bedroom cake. It will add texture, layer and spark of happiness to your room making it hard to choose whether you should sleep on the bed or on the rug itself.

Make sure to repeat this color in multiple areas in the room, such as walls. Paint them pink, paint them blue, red, white, yellow... Add unusual, kids drawings, pillows all around, big plants that take a lot of space, a bench from your backyard painted in pink or purple, the sky is the limit.

Eclectic Rugs

A vibrant display of colors and an interlocking design are sure to be eye-catching. Did you know that we also offer one-of-a-kind rugs that bring energy and excitement to just about any room? Perfect for your eclectic home.one-of-a-kind-eclectic-rug-with-interlocking-design

Get The Right Size Rug for Every Room

Monday, October 15, 2018 1:03:50 AM Europe/Paris

Are you planning to buy rugs for your home but you can’t figure out the right sizes for your rooms? In this post, we discuss rug sizing for various rooms to help you select the right size for each of the rooms in your home.

The Living Room

If armchairs and sofa are placed against the walls, you need a rug that goes under the forelegs of the large pieces. So you’ll have to choose a big rug. Of course, the case is different if you want more of the floor to show. Then, you have to select a smaller rug such that no legs of your seats overlap it. What if your furniture floats in your room? Buy a rug large enough to go well under all the four legs of every large piece.rectangle-woolen-loop-rug-in-the-living-room-under-the-small-table

Again, a smaller rug is suitable if you’d like to see more of the floor. Choose one small enough such that no seats overlap on it. Note that you can also use smaller rugs under coffee tables. They are great in defining a seating area.

The Hallway

Some hallways are large enough to provide space for some accent pieces or furniture on either or both sides. If you have such a hallway, get a rug that will run along the center. Such rugs are often two to slightly over three feet wide. Lengths vary depending on the corridor on which they’ll be used. You can also have a hallway rug custom-made for you. Be sure to keep your hallway furniture rested only on the floor.

The Kitchen

For busy kitchens, a small rug is ideal. Place it in front of your sink to bring out a beautiful appearance. For a center island or galley kitchen, a decorative runner is perfect. It will nicely cover the space.

big-size-rectangle-morocco-beni-ourain-rug-under-the-table-and-chairs-in-the-kitchen

Dining Room

A dining room looks nice when the chairs and table sit on the carpet. So you’ll need a big rug. Select one big enough to accommodate the chairs even when pushed out. An ideal size is 24” beyond the dining table on each side. What if your dining room is smaller? Be sure that your chair’s front legs sit on the rug six inches when pushed out. Round rugs complete round tables nicely.

Bedrooms

Ideal bedroom rugs should extend around the bed by about 36”. As a rule of thumb, standard sizes are 9x12 (king) and 8x10 (queen). Better still, place runners on either side of your bed. They are an excellent option providing you a nice, cozy feel underfoot.

Hemp rugs – The Future of Home Decor

Monday, October 1, 2018 10:47:20 PM Europe/Paris

For over thousands and hundreds of years, people all around the world have been captivated by the refreshing and airy appearance of the hemp rugs and products. And when something survives and thrives for that many years, you know that there is some serious quality involved.

Hemp is incredibly strong, durable, versatile, mildew and rot resistant and sustainable fiber that makes for highly hard-wearing rugs. Hemp rugs are beautiful, use fewer chemicals during processing and they simply make sense both ecologically and aesthetically.

They are vegans and vegetarians number one rug choice. Nevertheless, anyone who is looking for something eco-friendly and genuinely natural in their home will fall in love with these stylish and versatile rugs.

Did you know that almost every part of the hemp plant, including the stalk can be utilized for making a rug? Incredible, we know.

It's Royal Highness – Sukhi's Irmak Rug and How to Style It

At Sukhi we make our hemp rugs exclusively with 100% natural hemp. With their utterly charming and subtle differences in color and tone, our hemp rugs are the feast for the eye.

Their deep richness comes from the way they are made. Our artisans weave them by hand and the amount of work and passion that's infused into these rugs truly shines through.

We're especially proud of our white Irmak rug. We love how natural and neutral base it provides to every space and how it works with all types of furniture.

It's ideal for any setting that includes bold decor and bright patterns and colors, however, it looks the best in high-traffic areas that demand a very sturdy rug.

It looks beautiful in the living room, foyer and kitchen as that's where you need more durable and stain resistant materials the most.

The best way to style it in your kitchen is to make it the focal point of the room and go with the minimalistic approach with the rest of the space. That way, it will command the attention and amazed sighs from everyone who steps into your kitchen.

For the living room, you will find our Irmak to look gorgeous when put in the center of the room. To alter the look of your living room even more, add some vintage furniture and modern art pieces, along with some unusual plants all around.

In the foyer go for the monochromatic, black and white style. One punchy, accent chair and a coffee table along with the rug will look simple, yet alluring and inviting at the same time.

With our Irmak rug, your high-traffic rooms have finally met their match.

Why You Should Get a Hemp Rug In the First Place

You mean besides having an incredibly durable and gorgeous rug that celebrates nature? Yes, there are plenty more reasons for bringing a hemp rug into your home as it is an ideal choice for any decor.

And while it has a naturally coarse texture, it will soften to some extent and become stronger with time.

Here are some of the reasons why you will want a hemp rug:

Texture and Warmth

It's hard to imagine great decor without adding a bit of texture to it. What better way to do so than to install a hemp rug into your favorite room. Hemp rugs will instantaneously make any space feel complete by adding a splash of earthy and organic tones.

Furthermore, they don't make the room feel overwhelming, adding just a hint of warmth no matter the color palette of the room. Which brings us to…

Colors

Most hemp rugs come in neutral, earthy tones which makes decorating for all the seasons extremely simple. More importantly, they match every color you can imagine. You can put your hemp rug in any room, throw around some rainbow color pillows and blankets and space will still look lovely and relaxing.

Layering

Adding so much needed depth and richness to the favorite space in your home has never been easier than with hemp rugs.

Nonetheless, you can even layer a hemp rug and then add another patterned patchwork rug over it for a more intense and vibrant feeling.

Versatility

If you like to keep your options open when it comes to home decor, hemp rugs are the way to go. If you wish to switch up your home decor often or in between the seasons, a hemp rug will be happy to fit into any of your decor's themes and ideas.

It is the ideal foundation of the room, allowing you to trade in new art pieces, add a punchy, eclectic detail or some accent chair, you name it. In the blink of an eye, you can transform your home from sophisticated, vintage and antique chic to elegant and modern apartment or whatever you have in mind.

Hemp rug is definitely the new synonym for versatility!

The Story of Beni Ourain Rugs Magnificence - Clash of Traditional and Modern

Monday, September 10, 2018 11:10:12 PM Europe/Paris

Did you know that the Beni Ourain rugs are thought-out to be the most prestigious rugs in Morocco? How can they not be, when these stunning rugs have a fascinating ability to connect the tradition and heritage with modern-day interior decor to create something truly breathtaking and timeless. Today we share why you should bring the Beni Ourain rugs warmth and plushness into your home and the tradition behind these elegant and gorgeous rugs.

Tradition

The story of the Beni Ourain rugs dates back to the Paleolithic Era when the skillful people of Morocco had started hand-woven these beautiful rugs. A group of Beni Ourain tribes from the Middle Atlas was making their traditional neutral rugs from the undyed wool mostly to use them as mattresses or as a blanket in the winter months.

Traditionally, the tribal weavings that can be found on the rugs were made exclusively by women. These symbols are ancient and are passed down from mother to daughter. Here at Sukhi, we were moved by these textiles that were crafted at the whim of the weaver, whose only guide was her ancestral tradition. That's how Sukhi Beni Ourain rugs came to be.

Each of our artisans weaves the story of her life into the rug, so there are no two Beni Ourain rugs alike. Every single of them is a unique and original piece of art. Themes that can be found on them are related to birth, fertility, nature, rural life and religious beliefs. That’s why symbols of lucky charms and tribe ceremonies are often present. Our artisans make Beni Ourain rugs from 100% special sheep wool that is 100% undyed. That's exactly how their ancestors did it. Marvelous, don't you think?

artisans-from-morocco-making-sukhi-beni-ourain-rug-from-finest-wool

Why Bring the Beni Ourain Rug In Your Home

The epitome of elegance and luxury, made from what is considered to be the finest wool on earth, the Beni Ourain rugs are the most comfortable rugs you will ever find. Walking on them feels like walking on the exceptionally soft and warm cloud. The path to heaven is made from Beni Ourains as far as we're concerned.

Beni Ourain rugs are for boho and eco-lovers, but also for everyone who wants to explore the whole new world of travel and adventure under their feet. Best of all, they are a classic design that fits perfectly in any room with the lovely natural ivory linen and astonishing white and cream shades. However, we like them best in living rooms where they tend to bring the warmness and richness.

You get to choose from graphically dense to monochrome patterns, from saturated shades to natural, more muted nuances. We dare you not to fall in love with the bold colors, in-depth patterns and dynamic, gestural shapes on our rugs.

Although they have such a long tradition, Beni Ourain rugs are remarkably modern looking. They are also great for those who enjoy minimalism because they feature the minimalistic design of diamonds, triangles and a whole lot of other figures and symbols.

walking-on-beni-ourain-rectangle-aicha-grey-and-white-rug-in-the-living-room

The tremendous amount of work and skills that go into them is indescribable. Imagine multiple weavers dedicatedly threading the wool and tying individual pile knots to craft a unique masterpiece, just for you. Don't say that this doesn't make you feel special.

Bring our Beni Ourain rug into your home and watch how vintage style, antique and tradition clash with modern and elegant right before your eyes.

Transform Your Home for Summer

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 6:04:53 PM Europe/Paris

Are you ready for summer? We are excited for the warmer weather and to bring you a few quick and easy tips for giving your home a summer makeover.

Bright Colors

Thick wool blankets and cozy throws are perfect for curling up by the fire or for bundling up on rainy, dreary days, but summer decor calls for something completely different. What better time of year to experiment with new colors? Whether you’re repainting a room in your home or brightening up a space by switching out chair cushions or throw pillows, nothing says summer like a burst of color. Using our colorful rugs as a foundation, switch up your home décor by utilizing bright couch cushions, rugs and throw pillows. You can see how stunning the colors are against a backdrop of neutral colored furniture.

Outdoor Spaces

The summer months are also the perfect time to reimagine your garden or patio space. Think about what makes summer feel like summer to you when adding new items. Make the space your own with tropical accents, wicker and rattan furniture, and rugs with bold colors and patterns that come from warmer parts of the world. Of course, lush greenery always adds a very refreshing and energetic touch to any outdoor space. Plants thrive in warmer climates with lots of sunlight. Take advantage of this by lining your space with natural beauty. White, string lights also add a light and airy vibe to outdoor spaces; perfect when entertaining your guests for an outdoor, evening affair.

Out with the Old, In with the New

Switch out your current home decor for new items that remind you of summer. Start fresh by taking all of your winter decorations off the shelves, tables and mantles and putting them away. Once your space is free of these items, it will be easier to picture which elements will help to transform the space. The fireplace is typically the centerpiece of the home during winter months. For summer, you want to draw attention away from it. You can do so by placing a bright rug just off to the side of it, which will draw the eye. Add pops of color to your living space by incorporating a few books with brightly colored book covers. Books used for interior decorating can easily be found at garage sales or thrift stores.

Sunlight and Centerpieces

Let the sunlight in by replacing your thick, heavy winter curtains with linens and silky fabrics. Sheer curtains give you some protection from the glare of the sun, while still allowing a cool breeze to circulate. Add fresh cut flowers to the most used areas of your home, such as the kitchen or dining room. If you want to get creative with your centerpieces, you can use souvenirs that you have collected during your trips to the beach or trips abroad. These travel souvenirs will also serve as a fascinating conversation piece between you and your guests during meals. Our colorful felt ball rugs from Nepal are the quintessential summer décor item. Our custom designs even enable you to use them as seat cushions.

The Moroccan Beni Ourain Adds Warmth to All-White Interiors

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 1:38:37 AM Europe/Paris

We love all-white interior design for the cool, clean aesthetic it creates. It’s also possible to create an all-white interior that exudes warmth and coziness. Using our Moroccan Beni Ourain rugs as inspiration, we will show you how to give your neutral space a boost of vibrant personality.

Plants

Plants are a prominent feature in the “Jungalow” style, which has taken the design world by storm. Lush greenery adds dimension to a space and literally breathes new life into it. If you’re ever in doubt about how to style a particularly awkward or empty corner of your home, you can’t go wrong by putting a large or unique plant to fill in the space. It will also make for a great conversation piece.

Plants do more for your home than add beautiful aesthetics, they also offer humongous health benefits; they absorb harmful toxins in the air and also help to regulate humidity. Besides, they’re an inexpensive way to add instant color and glamour to your bedroom, living room or outdoor patio. For a fresh pop of color, add a green plant to your white space. Notice how a green plant complements our white rug below. The Beni Ourain rug is known for its luxurious and decadent quality. Adding a special plant in the room along with the rug will make your home feel like a grand palace.

Pop of Color

A pop of color in an otherwise all-white interior will take your space to the next level. The rug on top of a rug style has been prominent in Moroccan interior design for centuries. This look is now becoming quite popular in modern décor. Deep, jewel-colored rugs such as the one featured below are striking and a beautiful way to showcase your white Beni Ourain, once the white rug is placed on top of it. Notice how the rich blue hue both draws your attention to it while also highlighting the beautiful rug seated on top of it. Take a look at our overdyed Turkish patchwork rugs for inspiration for the rug on rug design style.

Brightly colored throw pillows and colorful, printed wallpapers are another way of adding color to your white space. Throw pillows are convenient due to their ability to be changed out depending on the season or on your mood. While wallpaper is a bit more of a commitment, the wide variety of options now available on the market will be sure to make you fall in love.

Wall Art

Eclectic wall art and global accents have taken on a life of their own in recent years. Decorative items such as ornate mirrors, fabric wall hangings, framed images and rare souvenirs create the look of a well-traveled soul. Luckily, one doesn’t have to travel to the ends of the earth to collect such beautiful artifacts. Thrift stores offer many lovely and individualized finds at very affordable prices. Once a white Beni Ourain has been strategically placed in the room, the complete look truly comes together.
