The Weekend Collection
The Weekender Rug is hand-tufted for lasting softness underfoot.
Design is a journey, not a destination.
Based in New York, the NuStory design team draws on the international energy of one of the world’s great cities, but we’re also inspired by getting away every once in a while. Whether taking a short break upstate or traveling to India to collaborate with weavers, we love to venture near and far. Each of the rugs in our Weekend Collection conjures the freedom of a few days off.
Every rug tells a story, and that’s certainly true of this collection. The Rastro Rug is named for the famous flea market in Madrid, where vintage furniture and hand painted ceramic tiles decorate the streets on Sundays. The Cottage Rug feels like it belongs in the kitchen of a lakeside getaway in the Hudson Valley. And a weekend spent meandering souk stalls hung with handmade carpets in Morocco inspired our Weekender Rug.
The Barefoot Rug combines bohemian style with kick-your-shoes-off softness.
Touch and Texture
We also spent a lot of time getting the textures just right for this collection. Our Barefoot Rug makes you want to kick off your shoes as soon as you see it. Hand-tufted from wool and cotton, it varies between a longer .70” and a shorter .35” pile, constructed with Moroccan-style shag stripes that give its ivory surface extra softness. On the other hand, our Conservatory Rug is woven from recycled PET with a subtle sheen. It combines low-maintenance and long-wearing performance with a surprisingly soft weave. Across the Weekend Collection, every rug is made to feel good underfoot.
The Rastro Rug echoes the handmade Spanish tiles sold at Madrid’s famous flea market.
Quick Tip: Keep Things Casual
In handwoven jute, cotton and hemp, our Cottage Rug stands up to foot traffic and looks as good alone as it does layered. The casual style of this collection makes it easy to mix and match different materials. You might start with a large Cottage Area Rug in natural jute and layer a 4’ x 6’ wool Barefoot Rug on top for a little extra softness in front of a sofa or chair. Have fun, take the day off to decorate—and feel free to layer. (There are no rules!)
Our Cottage Rug comes in several colors and sizes, from area rugs to runners.
