Affordable luxury: beautiful artisan rugs for every budget

With the tide turning away from mass-produced and throwaway goods, we’re rediscovering the beauty and value in artisan pieces – with carpets and rugs being a case in point. From hand-knotted Persian pieces and hand-woven Turkish kilims to more affordable hand-tufted and hand-finished designs, every artisan rug tells a unique story in a way that a machine-made rug simply never can. But if you think a handmade rug is beyond your budget, think again.

Stelton with the Collar up

Adored Danish tableware brand Stelton (check out your Mum’s cupboards- she will have one of their gravy boats or definitely a vacuum jug) has worked with the Italian design duo, Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri, to create the Collar collection especially for all coffee aficionados. We definitely fall into that bracket.

Stelton collar range

For the astute coffee drinker, nothing is more important than flavour (and a nice shaped cup that feels right we always think.) The classic, Italian coock-top espresso maker, also known as a “Moka Pot”, is the utmost tool for creating a professional, full-bodied brew at home. Collar has a perfect silhouette with Stelton’s lauded Scandinavian design aesthetics.

Although the range was created last year, the matte black and on-trend gold and beech finishes make sure that these pieces don’t need to be hidden way in cupboards and are utterly timeless.
