Much loved Melbourne homewares brand Bonnie and Neil are best known for their distinctive textiles and soft furnishings, however a recent collaboration has resulted in a brilliant new direction for the brand.

In partnership with boutique tile, stone and surfaces studio Byzantine Design, Bonnie and Neil have created a range of versatile printed vinyl rugs, and glazed porcelain tiles.

After many years trying to find the right flooring product to accompany their distinctive designs, Bonnie Ashley of Bonnie and Neil has finally found it. Vinyl floor rugs!  It’s the rug you never knew you needed, until now…

In fact, ‘rug’ is perhaps a misnomer, as this unique floor covering is far more versatile  than your typical floor rug. This durable, non-slip floor covering is available in a range of sizes, and can also be custom made in any size.  Printed on a tough vinyl surface with padded backing, they can be used in both indoor and outdoor settings. They’re a great solution for any room requiring a robust, temporary floor covering – thinks kids spaces, studio or messy work spaces, outdoor seating areas, kitchens and bathrooms. (Also an affordable and super easy way to cover up flooring you’re not mad about, particularly if you’re renting).

For their debut vinyl range, Bonnie and Neil have been inspired by the traditional colour and pattern of exotic locations across the world, such as Greece and Mexico. The designs draw on best sellers from Bonnie and Neil’s existing collections, re-imagined in different scales and with new colour ways. ‘It’s been a fun process to work with our designs in a completely different space’ says Bonnie. With over 20 different designs and colour ways available, this is an impressively diverse debut range! 

With two new strings to their bow, this collab brings Bonnie and Neil just another step closer to their ultimate goal of ‘getting colour and pattern onto every surface’ – one room at a time!

Each rug in the Bonnie and Neil x Byzantine Design collection is designed in Melbourne, and made in the USA – shop online here. Also well worth a look – the corresponding ceramic tile collection, available here. SO good!
