These colourful rugs are too special for the floor

Country of Origin's lambswool creations will liven up forgotten corners

Holly Bullock

While 2D art can certainly elevate plain walls and forgotten corners, there’s something about dense-textured wall hangings that take things to a whole new level – especially when they’re made from tactile lambswool. Founded in 2014 by Alice Liptrot and Ben Taylor, Country of Origin is a knitwear trailblazer. Known for their unique colour-blocked sweaters, the pair have now channeled their combined creative energy into a bold homeware collection, primarily focusing on a series of bright tufted rectangles of eye-catching primary colours. Made in-house at the Country of Origin factory in Leicestershire, each one is a mini work of art that makes traditional paper-and-frame works pale in comparison. Rug-like in form, but way too special to be laid on the floor, these modern, Matisse-esque rectangles will add a cheering colourburst to every room.
