The brand are also thrilled that top stylist James Treble, who regularly appears on Network Ten’s lifestyle show The Living Room as their expert interior designer, is also collaborating with Rugspace on building the range.
“We are long-time fans of James and are very excited he is collaborating with us on the new business,” says United Artworks director Tony Romano. “We’ve worked extensively on building the Rugspace range together which promises to be a unique and exciting offering of hand-crafted, textural, natural rugs and accessories.”
Rugspace is unique in that it will provide a specific and curated selection of the very latest in trending floor and rug options targeted toward the interior design market. The brand will also offer its collections to both the public and trades through its website and a network of sales agents across Australia.

Rugspace celebrates textural, organic and natural products in its range along with a diverse mix of recycled materials. It’s a design aesthetic that is in hot demand right now, with the added benefit of providing the market with ecologically sound products.

The hand-crafted element works perfectly with the natural and recycled fibres that are used to achieve Rugspace’s signature look, In addition there’s also a beautiful range of machine made rugs on offer as well for the more value conscious market.
“Rugspace is very aware that people are looking for exceptional value in rugs and homewares without compromising quality and style,” says Tony. “It really is a one-stop-shop for homemakers, designers and decorators where they can easily and quickly find what they are after at a fantastic price point.”
Prices will typically range from a very reasonable $299 to $799. Some of the more intricate, or hand knotted rugs, using a higher quantity of fibre such as wool, will retail up to $2000 and beyond.
Rugspace are also proudly working with Goodweave – an organisation which aims to stop child labour in the carpet industry. “We feel it’s important to support rug makers who are consciously making an effort to improve labour conditions throughout the rug making industry and particularly in India,” says Tony. “We are proud to support any efforts made toward making the world a better place!
