More than Mats the Eye
Faye Borleis gives insight into Noosa Mats And Rugs from business story to favourite pieces…
How and when was your business born?
Our retail shop began in 1998 in Noosa and we are the third owners having owned the business for five years.
What do you love most about your business?
Dealing with all our wonderful customers and helping them achieve the look they want for their homes.
How would you describe your personal style and how it translates to your business?
Because there are now four of us working with our customers and we all have had different experiences in styling homes this brings an interesting mix of design experience and interesting ideas to offer each other and the customers.
What is your most popular/favourite product right now?
Our beautiful jute and wool rugs have been extremely popular but also our indoor/outdoor range is fabulous and so practical, they come in many sizes.
What are the current directions in mats and rugs?
Definitely easy care and responsibly-sourced rugs, natural fibres and recycled materials. Our New Zealand wool rugs are extremely popular.
Our range of homewares is also proving to be very popular as what we offer is very affordable and suited to our wonderful coastal lifestyle. In terms of colours and texture, it is very much about natural colours and textures.
What are some of the elements that set your business apart?
The huge range and variety of mats and rugs we offer. From doormats, hall runners and kitchen mats; to outdoor mats and indoor rugs in wool, polypropylene, jute, cotton, bamboo and P.E.T recycled materials.
We also offer free local delivery and our Australia-wide delivery is available for a very minimal charge.
What are you loving this season?
The beautiful new textures and warm colours coming through are amazing, we have many new styles coming in and great selection of homewares and furniture to complement our rugs.
What do you love about being IN Noosa?
Our coastal lifestyle and simple way of living, we are spoilt for choice for restaurants and I love that you can take a short drive and be somewhere completely different.
What is your go-to item to make any room come alive?
A great floor rug!
