Be Our Guest: Home for the Holidays

Sambhar Rug

There’s no place like home, especially when it comes to the holidays. And every home has those distinct elements that make it unique that are reminiscent of the people who live there. Whether it’s the plush wool rug you used to fall asleep on as a child while waiting for Santa, or the comforting throw that everyone wanted to use during family movie night, recreating that ‘home for the holidays’ feeling is simple with our range of handmade rugs and home décor.


Rugs for Around the Table


Make moments around the dinner table even more memorable during the holiday season with a conversation-starting handmade rug from enkay.com. The Isparta and Sakarya rugs will stand the test of time with their intentionally aged surfaces and durable 100% wool, hand-knotted piles. Lahti’s subtle hues of blue and grey add a tender touch of color to a space, while its lustrous 100% Afghani wool pile is a delight underfoot. If it’s a statement you’re after though, Tribute gives all the timelessness and durability of a low-pile, neutral rug with its daring high-low tribal pattern making it a piece that’s hard to ignore (the perfect main attraction for a dining room).

Rugs for the Living Room


Probably the area of the house you spend the most time in (other than your bedroom), the living room is the heart of the home. Ertis is a timeless addition with an elevated feel due to its geometric patterns created by the natural variations in the hues of the wool used to create it. Another beautiful option is Vari. Durable and low maintenance, Vari is an easy duotone that lends a grounding texture and blends seamlessly with the other décor in the room – perfect for a quick, simple update to a space that is likely already pretty established in your home.

Looking for something durable but don’t want to skimp on softness? Get the best of both worlds with Sukri, a heavenly soft hand-knotted rug crafted using a blend of 60% wool and 40% viscose. Don’t let its plush, sky-blue pile fool you though, this rug is kid and pet friendly too, making it a welcome addition to any living room. Or perhaps you’d prefer Sukri’s distant cousin from our Origins collection, Nava. Crafted from the same blend of wool and viscose, Nava trades pale blue for a sandy hue perfect for a living room with more neutral, earthier tones.

The Perfect Final Touches


Our collection of handmade throw pillows and blankets helps to add a touch of color and texture to a room while complementing the other décor in your space to effortlessly tie it together. And when it comes to creating that cozy holiday feeling, these are the pieces you need to turn to.


The Freya pillow will always have our hearts when it comes to softness and texture (and it comes in charcoal and ivory so you can enjoy it no matter your color scheme!). Then of course Crevasse’s subtle off-white striations will be at home in any space, while Mandia’s ivory bouclé finish is irresistibly soft thanks to its 100% New Zealand wool construction.

If you’re looking for a conversation piece that plays on texture and materiality, you have to see our new arrivals. The Anaise pillow is made from 100% PET (i.e., recycled plastic bottles), yet offers all the softness and textural tactility of wool. Also 100% PET, the Finn pillow is a duotone of greys presented as a strong linear design made up of chunky, oversized knots that simply add to its tactile appeal.


Our Yara throw is currently our only available blanket at enkay.com, but we have some beautiful, brand-new additions coming soon to help add the perfect amount of texture to your bedroom or living room.
