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.
