For the love of Linen – Belgian Libeco Linen Rugs

I can’t hide I do have a preference for linen !  I love to use linen in clients projects, as in this living room I nearly finished.
I might think that our renowned Belgian decorator & antiques dealer Axel Vervoordt has influenced a lot of us, designers, to bring in linen fabrics in our projects. He introduced us, in particularly, to the world of the slipcovered seats. And I have to admit, I wasn’t immune to this gorgeous new look !
For my client’s living room here, I have chosen linen fabrics for the window treatment as well as for the seat upholstery. Linen provides a full range of colors. You can be sure to find that subtle shade you are looking for. As to notice here in this living room, I was looking for a particular color shade for the bergère upholstery to have a match with the old rose marble color of the antique chimney piece. And I found this lilac shade of Belgian linen in the collection of our Belgian company LF-Trading.

I am currently looking for a linen rug to bring in here.

This Libeco Big Wave rug could be an alternative to bring into the room above. The design of this rug is inspired by vintage surf boards.

Linen rugs in neutral colors work beautifully in nearly every room in the house. My personal choice of rug for this living room up here : Libeco Portobello Road carpet, in flax or gray.
