Pictures have been taken without any artificial enhancements and in daylight. Please note that shades of colour displayed on this page/site may vary according to your screen settings. There are some pictures below of the rug sat against both the Laura Ashley and Farrow and Ball paint charts, this is for guidance and do get in touch if colour match is crucial.
ITEM: THIN pile woven RUG by Laura Ashley, "KATIE" circa 2004 so long discontinued and not many have swung my way over the years, more so in this condition so don't linger for too long! Iconic and Laura Ashley at her best, these will soon become coveted collectors items as the brand will shortly no longer be. Any fold wrinkles/creases will fall out once the rug has been laid. CONDITION: Offered in very good pre-owned condition with the following to note. Markings scattered to the rug to commensurate with their previous life.I have photographed them below in the pictures so please scroll on down to view ALL. Some of the weave is a little irregular to the edges, takes nothing away and does not affect the function of the rug and is NOT ripping or fraying. I have given this a very quick superficial steam clean (water only and no detergent) so no heavy dust layers but for hygiene it is recommended that you account for a professional clean prior to re-laying in your home. No rips nor holes and no excessive wearing/thinning of the pile nor excess colour fade etc etc. The reverse of the rug remains blemish free and you could use this side also which of course the binding strip and label would be visible.
Sigh they really do not make them like this anymore! This was produced in their heyday I think! Flat weave, wool blend rug woven in Italy using Italian yarns.A right botanical and floral beauty! Large floral bouquets/clusters adorn the entire rug. In their "scarlett" colour way, which indeed is a passionate shade of red, but ever so tonal as the colours blend from the the deepest reds right through to the paler nearing pinky red. Accents of pale grey, latte and a hint of oatmeal all on a taupe/oatmeal backing. The patterns are lightly raised off the rug and the rug itself holds a slight velvety almost chenille texture in choice areas. 229 cm x 162 cm or 90.1 inches x 63.7 inches respectively.
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.
