If you haven't already heard, Mr.Fenton's rugs are officially making the move from rug stand to rug shop! 'Mr.Fenton's Rug Shop' will be upstairs at Fenton & Fenton (that's right, you can finally come up the mystical white staircase) and is set to open next week.
We are thrilled to have a space dedicated to our rugs, also lovingly referred to by Mr.Fenton himself as the humble dhurrie. In addition to offering more classic designs than you can poke a stick at, in every colour imaginable, Mr.Fenton has set about creating an ever increasing range of designer dhurries that defy, not only the cruel reign of the expensive pile rug over the unassuming dhurrie but the inherent flatness of the floors that have so long held the dhurrie back from greatness.
Be sure to follow Mr.Fenton on Instagram @mrfentonsrugs
for all the information on our grand opening plus an
ever growing collection of inspiration and our favourite rug snaps plus you can play
with designs 24/7 on the rug builder here
For any specific rug related enquiries flick us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and one of our friendly
rug specialists will be able to help.
See you at the rug shop!

It is no secret that Jai Vasicek is one of our most adored artists and can do absolutely no wrong in our eyes.
His new range of cushions & throws due to land in May are AMAZING. We can't wait!
His throws are screen printed and hand stitched onto cotton jersey perfect for those winter months that have snuck up out of nowhere. "Gaudeloupe
" has been digitally printed to reflect Jai's amazing tile artwork, the colours are so vibrant & beautiful. They are 1.4m x 2m - the perfect size for a single bed, draped across the end of a queen or king, or thrown over a sofa to curl up with a hot cup of cocoa to keep warm.
The cushions are printed on super soft cotton chord and most are double feather filled - so lush! They are 55cm x 55cm and all feature Jai's trademark artwork style. They all work so well together & you really can choose any combination - but they are still as equally strong on their own if you are only on the hunt for one
(seriously, how good are those papayas!).
The cushions & throws have been added to our online store and are available for pre-order!
You can view the range here
. Be quick!!
Somehow now winter doesn't seem so bad....
A Workshop with Julia Green
Friday, March 28, 2014
Starting to style your home is incredibly exciting but on the flip side often incredibly overwhelming.
How many is too many cushions? What should be the hero in the room? Can I put a rug on my carpet?!
We hear ya, that's why we decided get a bunch of cheese, olives and champagne and hold a workshop with fenton&fenton's favourite stylist, Julia Green, who came armed with her rainbow of tips and tricks on how to give your home a heartbeat. For those who missed out, never fear we will be holding more workshops within the f&f walls in the near future, and also, we took notes....
And here they are, the top ten with Julia Green.
1. There's no right or wrong. Go with your gut instinct.
2. What colours make you happy? All colours have emotions attached to them, make sure you're creating the right mood in each space with colour.
3. Start with art and floor. Repeat after us, art and floor, art and floor. Everything else can fit in around these two elements.
4. Dimensions are key when talking art and rugs. Style is not all about pieces, but about proportions and getting them right.
5. Think outside the box. Clip it. Tape it. Paint it. Display it.
6. If you're thinking “what's missing?” it's most likely foliage. So get some green in there!
7. Pull multiple pieces together to create mood.
8. A rug will make your room sing.
9. Different heights create interest.
10. “Creativity is not something that is always taught....but if I can do it, you can do it!”
We were thrilled to be joined by lovers of interiors, art, design and everything in between to peek inside Julia's much sought after way of thinking and styling and we would love to hear from you on what you would like to learn about or who you'd like to hear from in future workshops. You can contact us here with any feedback.
For now, we're off to pick on left over cheese and olives.
