Perhaps you're allergic to wool (like we are). Perhaps you have pets (like we do). So perhaps you're always looking for alternatives to wool rugs, but ones that are low maintenance. We bring you Maude Decor.
Patricia Baun started selling her signature hand-painted canvas rugs in 2002, and has continued designing collection after collection ever since. They've drawn the attention of Dwell, Elle Decor, Interior Design, Metropolitan Home, and numerous Canadian magazines.
One look at the Maude Decor website makes it easy to see why. These are not your traditional floorcloths. These are pieces of art for your floors.
The modern geometric designs are hand-painted on durable, heavy cotton canvas. With three layers of pigment and then three layers of sealer, the rugs are fade-resistant, stain-resistant, and water-resistant.
The weight of the heavy canvas rugs -- as well as their non-skid pads or backing -- means they mold to your floor rather than slipping and sliding.
Talk about kid-, pet-, and clumsy people-friendly.
Maude Decor will customize colors, size, and design.
Prices start at about $50 (Canadian) per square foot.
Maude Decor (which recently changed its name from PMB Designs) now also offers their designs as custom-made hand-knotted wool, silk, or flax rugs, as well as limited edition archival prints, custom room dividers, and headboards.
