We relocated to Singapore from Hong Kong this year, and I was devastated when our rug turned up largely stained and unable to be saved. It was a piece that I had bought while we were living in Sydney. I think rugs have a magical ability to really pull a room together. They instantly ground a space and can add colour, texture and warmth. Our living room rug is where we open our presents on Christmas morning, where my daughter took her first steps and where she first met her grandparents – it hosts so many cherished moments. I searched high and low before I found my way to Living DNA. With shopping, I’m a love-at-first-sight kind of girl. I just know . I also like to feel a connection and alignment with a brand. I think that’s important for items that we bring into our home. We bought the Lithe Cream rug from Living DNA – I loved its washed-out matte look and the fact it wasn’t too silky. Over the years, I’ve learnt that viscose is a perfect choice for us. You get that soft luxe feeling, like walking on clouds, but without any of the woolliness and heaviness of a traditional

wool rug. I also favour warm neutral colours and loved the colour palette the store offered. I felt so comfortable with the Living DNA team that I didn’t even view the showroom! And the most impressive part was the follow-up service. As can happen, some muddy footprints made their way onto the rug in the first week. The team stepped me through the treatment and with a bit of care and patience, my rug was as good as new. I’ll definitely shop there again.
