“When rugs start to make sense” – Lorena Canals
Babies and small children like to crawl and play on the floor. Have you ever thought about how many hours your kid is spending on the floor? Reading a book, lying on the floor, showing their new car collection or organizing a tea party with their dolls. You can see that your child plays endless hours on the floor! Years ago, the mother and designer Lorena Canals could not find any washable kids rugs on the market. So she decided to create their own! In fact Lorena Canals washable rugs create an irresistibly cozy playground for your little ones. You can choose from a big assortment of matching rugs, decorative pillows and storage basket to create your perfect nursery room and kids room. Does not matter if minimalistic, boho, colourful or whatever you imagine, Lorena’s assortment offers more than 300 products to choose from.
What is so special about Lorena Canals Rugs, Cushions & Baskets?
Have you ever thought about the fact that rugs, especially rugs in kids rooms are one of the coziest and eye catching interior item, but also one of the most annoying to keep clean? Most rugs need to be dry-cleaned, which means in fact that parents try to avoid all kind of dirt on carpets. So kids need to play carefully on rugs and most of the times they are not allowed to eat on them. With the Lorena Canals washable rugs and cushions, you do not need to worry about all of this anymore! These cozy rugs are super soft to play and cuddle on, and most important: They are very easy to wash in any conventional washing machine at home! So from now on, do not worry about any yoghurt or chocolate stains anymore! Just wash the rug at home and you can even dry it in your dryer, so it is going to be even more fluffy and cozy afterwards!
