American Rug Company Dash & Albert, now available at Cuckooland.com presents a happy selection of polypropylene indoor/outdoor and jute rugs in a variety of beautiful weaves.
Dash & Albert believe that home products should never be so precious that they can’t stand up to typical traffic, the occasional “oops” spilt wine, or pet slobber, so they craft them with the finest materials—which allows them to weather years of loving use, and even regular cleaning or washing!
Designed to add contemporary and stylish edge to your garden, patio or conservatory, Dash & Albert Rugs are made from 100% polypropylene and UV heat treated for outdoor use. The rugs are easy to clean – scrubbable, hoseable and bleachable making them great for high traffic areas, pets and children!
Dash & Albert is the creation of visionary designer Annie Selke. A consummate traveller and flea-market treasure hunter, Annie gathers inspiration wherever she goes. The ‘Samode Rug’ (pictured left) is inspired by the Samode Palace in India and introduces global glam and flair to modern homes. Its ultra-durable diamond design exudes geometric allure in an indoor or outdoor space.
The candy-striped yumminess on the Happy Yellow Stripe rug (pictured above) looks good enough to eat and is perfect for a nursery, teen bedroom, porch or patio!

Mixing Patterns: Tips from Dash & Albert
Rooms with a mix of different rug patterns have an undeniable wow factor that comes from taking decorating risks. Mixing styles and patterns of rugs can be a little intimidating — after all, rugs are an investment, and what if the combo you thought was the perfect marriage is actually an unmitigated, first-date fail? Fear not, once you’ve got your room’s personality nailed down, follow these easy-peasy rules for effortless patterned rug pairing like a pro:
1. Stick with the same colour scheme. It’s much easier to combine different rugs if the colours are harmonious. See how high-impact, black-and-white rugs pictured right, despite their different patterns, tie the hallway and stairs together?
2. Focus on a single theme, like geometrics (pictured right), vintage, oriental or florals, and choose two patterned rugs that fit within the same theme. This is a great opportunity to inject some of your own personality!
3. For a cohesive look choose rugs with a similar construction, i.e. woven, wool, cotton, PET etc.
4. Make sure you choose rugs with a similar profile, just like people, rugs appear different in profile. A flat lightweight indoor/outdoor rug will look out of place next to a fluffy or wool rug.
