An area rug with a compass rose isn’t just for those who love the sea, it can also be a handy item for the directionally challenged…granted, it’s a little more elaborate than a compact hand held compass.
Having this rug on the floor positioned with the directions pointing correctly for the home or space, is a creative way to help someone with trouble knowing north from south. By walking over this little reminder everyday, it could sink in! This may sound a little comical, but personally I know a few people who struggle with compass directions, and a simple tool like this, that combines both decor and learning could help them.
Of course, if learning a compass direction is neither here nor there, this rug is ideal for a nautical themed space, or perhaps a beach house or cottage. It comes in multiple sizes so you can easily choose one to fit the space you need to cover.
The challenge with such an artistic piece that features a purposeful design all over the rug, is to feature it without covering it. As an example, if you’re putting this in a bedroom, placing it at the end of the bed or in any spot where there wouldn’t be furniture covering would allow the rug, in all it’s beauty and uniqueness, to be completely seen.
You could easily feature this one in a large covered patio area or a decorative boathouse where there’s plenty of openness and fresh air. Choose accessories to compliment the blue, and you’ll have a lovely themed space.
A true nautical compass rug will show all the directions on the map; North, South, East, West, North West, North East, South West, South East, East and West.
