A wood rug on the floor can add lots of charm to home and office interiors. It is an ideal alternative to hardwood flooring, especially in a tropical country like India. Hardwood flooring sure looks elegant, rustic and all, but it comes with its own woes for the homeowner. For one, wooden flooring is expensive and needs a lot of maintenance. Wooden flooring is prone to damage in humid conditions and in the presence of termites.
If you are the kind of homeowner who likes to change things as seasons change, why not opt for a wood rug or a wooden carpet instead of hardwood flooring.
Legno-Legno is one such wood rug beautifully crafted by Ruckstuhl, a swiss design house. Legno-Legno makes it pretty simple for you to place wood rugs on your floor and roll them up when not in use. Available in six different types of woods, you can use it to define different areas in your apartment or studio.
