Rugs have been used to warm and decorate rooms for centuries and ancient nomads used them much like portable floors, carrying rugs with them on long journeys to make sleeping on the ground more comfortable.

These days most of us use rugs for purely practical reasons - as a functional floor covering. But a rug can do so much more than simply cover the floor. Rugs can add colour and warmth to any room, from the ground up and who says you can only use them on the floor; what about hanging one on the wall?

Nowadays using rugs to decorate your room, whether it's the floor or the walls, will add instant style, and with the range of designs, colours and styles to choose from, what used to be your tired old floor could instantly become your room's new best feature.

The Rug Studio, here in Subiaco, has been supplying rugs to WA homes since 1984. And each year since then thousands of the finest quality rugs have been selected from weaving centres around the world.

Twice a year owner, Greg Ryan, travels to the world's most famous rug and carpet weaving countries like India, Pakistan and Turkey. He personally selects each style and checks for quality before bringing stock back home.

While choosing a variety of timeless traditional designs, Greg also keeps in mind today's current trends and latest fashion colours. Many of the rugs you'll find at the Rug Studio have been custom made by the experts to Greg's specifications, so they really are exclusive to the Rug Studio.

There are richly textured vegetable dyes from India & Pakistan, nomadic styles in strong earthy colours from Turkey & Afghanistan, along with modern contemporary designs in the latest colours.

And if you don't find anything you like in store, maybe you could get something custom-made? The Rug Studio can take any design with them to the weavers and can even have a sample prepared for you before you decide.

The Rug Studio's amazing range of rugs and carpets are specially selected for their quality and their style, and the range here really is fantastic. There are patterns and plains and designs of every type and colour you can imagine. So there are rugs for every room of the house, from kids' rooms to lounge rooms.

Finding something you like can be a little overwhelming at first, but thankfully the staff here are not only experts at choosing the right rug for the right room, they're also more than happy to help.

Just bring in a sample of any fabrics or paint used the room and The Rug Studio will make sure that you take the right rug home the first time. If you don't like your rug once you've got it home, or its not the right size or colour, they'll change for one that is. In fact, they're so dedicated to ensuring that you're satisfied with your choice of rug, they'll even bring a selection to your home so you can try them on for size.

If you live further north or you're willing to travel that little bit further to find a great bargain, then you'll find The Rug Studio's new Import Warehouse right here in Malaga.

This started out as just a warehouse but its now open to the public, and because they save on transport costs, you save too. The Import Warehouse is more like a market than a store. They're only open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and you'll find all of the Rug Studio's clearance specials here.

The Rug Studio's Subiaco store is at 361 Roberts Rd in Subiaco, just down from the Subiaco Pavilion markets. Or if you're looking for more of a market bazaar feel, then the Import Warehouse in located just behind the Malaga Markets at 2 Enterprise Cresent.

The Rug Studio is such an Aladdin's Cave, whichever store you visit, you're sure to find an exotic treasure.
