The difference between custom and bespoke is the client. A custom rug comes from your imagination and inspiration, while a bespoke rug uses a TSAR design that you add different colours or fabrics.
As you will see by browsing, many of our rugs by design have dimensions. Clients can design a custom size rug, which we can cut and fit into any area you desire without losing the essence or beauty of the original design.
TSAR custom rugs are made in our Portugal factory with our production team carefully overseeing every step. Depending on size and complexity, each one takes between 12-16 weeks.
For custom rugs, the quality depends on the line count or the number of knots or stitches per square inch. As the number goes up, so does the quality. The highest quality rugs begin at 200 to 400 knots per square inch and can reach upwards of 6,000.
We recommend custom rugs ranging between ⅜ and ½ inches. Thinner rugs become a tripping hazard.
Colour is a personal preference. When you begin your consultation process, please bring pictures of the space and anything you derive inspiration from.
Depending on which materials bring your custom rug to life, it will last 5-10 years. Rugs can last longer with proper maintenance.
Depending on the space and natural sunlight will dictate if your custom rug should be light or dark. We encourage you to bring images of the rug’s final destination to your consultation for our designer’s best insight.
With proper maintenance, a custom rug does not need to be changed or replaced for 5-10 years.
The general rule of thumb is a square rug going under a couch should be at least 6- 8″ wider than your couch on both sides. Our design team recommends 30″ to 36″ of a walkway between large furniture pieces, if the space allows, or we can create a unique and custom design.
We recommend complementary colours or patterns that accent your furniture but are not identical.
The TSAR design team will review the schematics of your personalised rug and the desired final placement. A rug that is too big may be overpowering, while a rug that is too small will not have the desired design impact.
