A little over a week ago, we celebrated the opening of our first retail space in London's creative Shoredtich district, welcoming over 150 rug lovers, designers, stylists, journalists and bloggers.

Sponsored by Chapel Down wines, the party marked the official opening of our space in partnership with furniture maker KENT & LONDON, in a former shoe wholesalers. Stripped out and turned into a stunning light-filled showroom, the Hackney Road location is the perfect place to see our beautiful rugs. The store marks our long-held dream, so what better way to celebrate than with rug lovers from right across London (and further afield).

The party was a lot of fun (the rumours are true - we were still kicking people out at 10.30!), nearly 200 of you including many of our loyal supporters and designer friends making the evening a huge success. A massive thank you to KC for providing the superb tunes and Chapel Down for sponsoring the evening. And of course, a huge thank you to everyone who came along. For those of you that couldn't make it, there's always next time!
