Guest Blog for Cabyn - Styling with Jord Home

We were delighted when Cabyn asked us to guest blog for them last Christmas. The original blog on the Cabyn site has the full Christmas edition, which you can visit and read when the season arrives. Here we have an edited version of the blog that covers the concepts and points we discussed which apply throughout the year. We hope you enjoy this read.

sheepskin rugs

Our Cabyn Crew love a collaboration and at Christmas there is no one better than with Gemma, founder of Jord Home. Her beautiful rugs and throws perfectly compliment our sofas in creating a rustic, Nordic, cosy and comforting style.

I was struggling to find beautiful rugs at an accessible price point for my own home.  I discovered some amazing makers and small producers of rare sheepskins and wanted to share my discoveries so I set up Jord Home.  I love working with my customers to create beautiful spaces where they can relax and enjoy for years to come.

Jord translates across the Nordic countries as ‘from the earth’ & represents our commitment to natural materials. We source the softest sheepskins on earth with a focus on ethical rearing and sourcing.

All of our flatweave rugs are crafted from hand on traditional wooden looms, using cotton, jute and wool.

We source natural hides from the Sami people, a nomadic tribe travelling across the fells of Sweden, Norway and Finland following the rhythm of the seasons.

We are specialists in sourcing Beni Ourain rugs from the Atlas Mountains, where Berber tribeswomen have woven wool rugs for centuries to keep their families warm and comforted.

Can a rug transform a room?

Yes definitely!  A rug can be a focal point or it can be a lovely textural element that blends depending on your choice & what you want from the room. 

We have a lot of neutral styles that blend beautifully with the Cabyn sofas and create a tonal room that feels calm and uncluttered.  Or you can opt for a ‘statement’ centre piece as a wow factor – one of our cowhide rugs are perfect for this !
