After a thorough bout of spring cleaning, it's time to inject some light into your home. For some that looks like investing in a quality rug, like the Bramble style from Armadillo. For others, some sunny pillows will do. Below, the summer homewares we're shopping when your home spaces are in need of some cheer.
There's much to love about artisanal rug label Armadillo. For starters, the female-owned and women-led company creates consciously and with slow design in mind.
