Manufacturer in focus - Harlequin

As Leicestershire’s largest independent flooring retailer, we like to think that we know a thing or two about quality flooring. This month we will be showcasing Harlequin; one of the many top brands we stock at Michael John Flooring.

Harlequin’s rugs are so bold and colourful that you could put one in a dark, dank cave and it would suddenly feel homely. Their products are more like woollen paintings than rugs – it almost feels sacrilegious to stand on such stunning pieces of art!

The Harlequin is a stock character in Commedia Dell’arte – a type of theatre which gave birth to modern comedy. The Harlequin traditionally wears a brightly pattered costume and is both sophisticated and mischievous – all traits that we think could also apply to Harlequin’s idiosyncratic style.

Harlequin Fabrics and Wallcoverings are part of the Style Library – a family of companies who specialise in fabric, wallcoverings, trimmings and paint. Harlequin make fabrics of all kinds, and their floors are the foundation of their unique interior design style. You can find some of these distinctive designs in our online ‘Rugs Gallery’ or by visiting us instore at any of our Leicestershire showrooms. These eye-catching statement rugs need to be seen in person for you to experience the full effect. Come and meet our expert team – they’ll be more than happy to help you pick the perfect rug.
