Textiles for raya

Revive the look of your home with a few extra cushions, curtains or rugs. Decorating for Hari Raya with textiles is simple, wallet-friendly and the overall appearance of your home can be enhanced in a beautiful way. Layer the textiles, play with different textures and colours, and just express your style with our range.

Floor textiles

Decorating with rugs is an easy way to make our homes more personal and cosy. A rug can frame a seating area, and can cater to other activities such as gaming, dining, watching TV, and sleeping.

Check out our STOENSE series. The rugs come in 3 different sizes and a variety of colours.  The dense, thick pile dampens sound and provides a soft surface to walk on. They are also durable, stain resistant and easy to care for since the rugs are made of synthetic fibres.

As seen in real homes

A quick guide to some common combinations:

When choosing the size of the rug, a good rule of thumb is that it should be longer than the sofa. It gives an airy impression and frames the space well. Keep in mind that two smaller rugs can function as a larger one if next to each other! 

Living room

A good rule of thumb is that the rug should be longer than the sofa. In terms of width, it’s good if it extends under at least 1/3 of the sofa.


If you want a larger rug under the bed, it should extend about 50 cm from the outer edge of the bed. If you choose a small rug next to the bed instead, an anti-slip underlay is extra important so that it stays firmly in place.

Dining room

The rug needs to be both longer and wider than what the dining table and chairs measure together when the chairs are pulled out. So count on needing between 60 and 80 cm of rug on each side of the table.
