Oooh la la we received these amazing pics from Melbourne retailer Fenton & Fenton recently, and whilst I KNOW this beautiful Melbourne store isn’t exactly a new find, we were pretty excited to see their incredible new collection of flat weave dhurrie rugs from Rajasthan, India.

‘While we’ve been selling dhurrie rugs for a number of years now, it is an aspect of our business that we have recently been investing much more time and creative energy into’ says Lucy Fenton.  Having finally found an established and ethical supplier in India, with generations of experience in the game, in recent months Lucy has been able to focus on developing her own range of rug designs.  ‘We have started creating our own exclusive designer range, in addition to working on ways to improve our existing custom-made dhurrie rug service’ says Lucy.

Most of the rugs pictured here are exclusive to Fenton & Fenton, while others feature more traditional designs.  I am loving the vibrant colours and bold, geometric designs… they certainly pack a punch!

Whilst you can purchase floor stock directly from the showroom or online, it’s also great to know that the rugs can also be custom made to order in any size!  The standard range (generally consisting of 2 colours) are priced at $220 per square metre, whilst the designer collection, with more intricate designs and more colours, is priced at $270 per square metre.  This means that most of the designs, for an average sized room, will set you back $2000 or less.

Check out the current range here!  Nice work Fenton people.

    The rugs are absolutely amazing and so are the lamps!

    I am familiar with this beautiful range of rugs and I’m curious to know if you’re planning to stock them in sydney so that one can have a look in person? Computer monitors are so unreliable when it comes to colour accuracy. One other question..please will you share those fabulous inky wall colours…?

    Fenton & Fenton is a home decor store even my husband enjoys visiting (VERY big thumbs up) I drool at every piece they have, such a cool feel to their styling. Those rugs really make the space so vibrant.

    Love the rugs! … Any chance we can get the blue wall colour? ta.

    Hi All! Very interesting comment from Sophie Carroll – Please note as outlined in our ‘About’ page, ALL CONTENT on TDF is editorial, you’ll never see a sponsored post here! I’m not sure what prompted this comment? Perhaps because I included the pricing? It seemed relevant, as rugs can often be so expensive.

    Big tick – the combining of some of my favourite colours has inspired me to get more motivated with our lounge room – as mentioned before would love to know what smoky blue paints for the walls were used?

    That cabinet (and styling in general) in the rabbit print photo is one of the best I’ve seen.
