No, these are not reissues of something from the 1950s. The Inaluxe abstract rugs at Dunelm are new designs inspired by the midcentury modern era.
Not the kind of place you would expect to find these either. I’ve popped into Dunelm now and again in passing and it isn’t usually packed with interesting design. It comes across as more of a functional kind of place. But the retailer’s online range seems to differ considerably from the shop range, with many of the larger items and furnishings tending to be online exclusives. Just like these rugs, for example.
There are eight designs in total, all of which are pictured here and all featuring abstract designs inspired by the mid-20th century. That’s no accident. These rugs are designs to be the perfect finishing touch for a midcentury modern interior, adding both colour (in most cases) and a focal point for a room.
They have some wonderful names too. Take your pick from Shipping News, Night Sky, Jazz Flute, Fabrique, Crystal Palace, Composition, Colour Fall or Coda II. All of which could pass as vintage jazz album titles too.
All the rugs are made of wool and all are available in different sizes, depending on the space you need to fill. Check out the dimensions of each one on the retailer’s website and also the prices, as each differs depending on that size.
But as a guide, if you want a smaller rug, they go from around £145, with the larger rugs from £245. Not cheap, but compared to designer rugs of a similar size, this is definitely at the more affordable end of the market, but without looking it.
