ITEM: Wool blend THIN pile woven RUG by Laura Ashley, "HINTON" circa early to mid 2000's - discontinued so indeed a marvellous little find! CONDITION: Offered in good PRE OWNED condition with the following notes. Surface markings scattered around and most look like they would sponge off or would lift/be fainter once properly cleaned - see BELOW pictures where I have magnified them. The edges of the rug is a bit "rolled" as it has been stored, but this should flatten once the rug is laid on a flat surface for a while.The reverse is super and this side could be used also, but the binding strip as well as the care label would be visible if you were to opt to lay it this side. Whilst marks can be quantified, smells cannot. This rug has been sourced from a clean and smoke free home and is stored in the very same condition in mine, BUT you are kindly reminded that this is a RUG that has been PREOWNED and thus its normal place of residence is on the FLOOR, and as such has been walked on etc etc - so for hygiene sake, it is recommended that you clean BEFORE using. That said, my nose smelled nothing disgusting at all.
FABRIC TEXTURE/COLOUR and DESIGN: they do not make it like this anymore Quite possibly one of the nicest rugs- a must have for that rambling country cottage. 100% cotton weave with choice area almost'chenille' and sits slightly raised off the backing and is softest to the touch.Self repeating pattern of large rose heads and dainty little buds to accent cover the entire rug, edged/bordered with quintessential'polka dots' this is quite possible the fullest epitome of shabby chic! Muted and most elegant colour palette, complimenting the pattern as well as the design of the rug. Officially labelled as "PINK" colourway through LA, indeed the shades of pinks is just that. Greens - sage along with true French grey along with accents.
The backing is a true buttermilk cream. I have included a few pictures of the rug sat against the FARROW & BALL paint chart which should give you a good idea on the colours used. 235 cm x 153 cm or 92.5 x 60.2 inches. Polite notice on the products that I sell - please take the time to read this before entering into a sale with me as it will save us both a lot of heartache later on. The mass proportion of what I sell are "one offs" and will almost always have had been pre-owned and homed/used elsewhere; thus by their very nature will exhibit inconspicuous signs to indicate their previous life.
Any significant markings, stains, blemishes, rips etc etc will always be highlighted and more than often will be accompanied by a picture of the offender(s), therefore take the time to EXAMINE all the pictures. In the interests of hygiene please ensure that you have accounted for the need to have such items washed/cleaned/freshened before using. The cleaning costs is NOT my responsibility and again, this is a cost that you should factor when purchasing SECOND HAND or PRE-OWNED products. The pictures in all my listings will have been taken in natural daylight and without the use of any artificial lighting enhancements etc.
Whilst my pictures best represent the item for sale in their textures, colours and conditions etc, the pictures must be viewed as indicative of the item for sale and almost always in conjunction to the listing text. All wordings and photographs are my own work; any views and opinions expressed in the main listing description text is MY own personal opinion. And whilst we all have different standards and levels of expectations, I do encourage you to take the time to EXAMINE the listing in all its glory.
