Cushions….you can never have too many!!

Our trading partner’s boutique, nestled in the heart of Marrakech Medina is just five minutes walk from the central square, Jmaa el Fna. It’s a bit like the tardis, small on the outside with a labyrinth of rooms inside packed floor to ceiling with colourful goodies. Rugs is our thing (as you know) but we also have an amazing selection of cushions. These come in various sizes including large floor cushions, most are made from the rugs and kilims we are all familiar with and some from cactus silk.

Cushions can take an interior to another level, adding colour and most importantly texture. Don’t be tempted to use the same colour as your sofa or your chair, choose a carefully selected mix of patterns and textures which complement each other ….. its a really easy way to create an amazing looking space, the more the eye has to take in, the more interesting it will be!  We certainly have plenty of cushions to offer, take a quick look at this lovely shot of the interior of Jamal’s boutique to see the variety! We hope to be adding some to our website soon, but in the meantime don’t hesitate to get in touch if we can help you with adding a bit of the wow factor to your interior! info@marbleandmint.co.uk

The New Normal

As the world starts to settle into a new ‘normal’ routine, the Medina market in Marrakech will slowly start to open allowing us to show you a new collection of beautiful hand made Moroccan rugs. These will all be available for shipping direct to your door from our trading partner in Marrakech. They are photographed in the raw so to speak, with no styling, just as they are, however more detailed close up shots are always available upon request. We will be showing you an ever changing selection of both modern and vintage rugs, some of which will sit perfectly in the modern nomad aesthetic which is becoming increasingly popular in interiors, whilst the colourful vintage rugs will always have a place alongside eclectic and bohemian decor. Keep on eye on our website over the coming weeks for our Modern Nomad and Vintage sections, if you see something you like do get in touch to check availability and for further information if required. We look forward to speaking to you soon!
