Uplift Your Home’s In-Between Spaces With These Handmade Rugs

The country home of Australian fashion designer Collette Dinnigan is the perfect backdrop for the muted palette of Armadillo’s newly expanded Nook Collection.

The new Nook Collection campaign was shot at the home of Australian fashion designer Collette Dinnigan.

Everyday luxury is one of the founding principles of Australian-American rug brand Armadillo—the idea that the simple addition of a beautiful rug can elevate our experience of the everyday.

Founded by Jodie Fried and Sally Pottharst, every Armadillo rug is handmade by artisans using traditional craft methods and natural fibers, such as jute and wool. This approach is epitomized in the recently expanded Nook Collection, which features hard-wearing accent and area rugs in earthy hues that bring a dynamic edge to every corner of the home.

The new Nook Collection campaign was shot at the home of Australian fashion designer Collette Dinnigan.

To showcase the new rugs, Armadillo shot the campaign in Black Barn Bowral, the country home of iconic Australian fashion designer Colette Dinnigan. Located in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, the rustic charm of the property is the perfect backdrop for the raw textures, grounded colors, and handcrafted beauty of the Nook Collection.

Armadillo Ghan Nook Rug

Our Ghan Nook boasts an enviable mix of texture, with sensory enjoyment front of mind. Combining a soumak weave with a Berber knot, its multi-dimensional diamond pattern enlivens the home’s smaller spaces.

Armadillo Hemlock Nook Rug

Hemlock is the understated and effortlessly cool cousin of Armadillo’s sumptuous Winnow wool rug. Rigorously handwoven with the same flatweave technique but made instead with hard-wearing, timeless jute. Hemlock is a rug of natural elegance and endurance perfectly suited to everyday living and high-touch spaces.

Armadillo Petra Nook Rug

Invoking the lush, timeless feel of Moroccan Berber-style rugs, Petra holds pride of place as one of Armadillo’s most decadent styles. With a hand-knotted wool weave made with a 30 mm pile, the longest in the collection, Petra is a deeply warm embrace underfoot and is perfectly placed next to the bed or in any small space that requires a layer of luxury.

Dinnigan’s property was conceived as an authentic country residence that draws on its history as a former barn.

The synergy between the creative vision of Armadillo and Dinnigan goes beyond aesthetics—both are creative powerhouses with a carefully considered approach that celebrates craft, material honesty, and sustainability. "I always work with crafts people over mass production, and take the time to source and search out different materials and finishes that are unique and bespoke," reveals Dinnigan.
