Unveiling the elegance: High-end wool rug remnants redefining interior design

Remnants emerge as sustainable and stylish solutions for interior designers, offering luxury without compromise.

In the dynamic world of interior design, every piece tells a story, and the latest chapter is being written by high-end wool rug remnants. These remnants, often overlooked and undervalued, are the unsung heroes of design, ushering in aesthetic appeal, affordability, and sustainability. End-of-the-roll remnants are not leftovers; they are the epitome of luxury, offering a unique blend of quality, versatility, and eco-friendliness that is reshaping the home design landscape.

Traditionally, interior design has been synonymous with exclusivity and opulence, with high-end materials commanding premium prices. However, rug remnants are hidden gems that offer a luxurious touch without compromising your budget or the environment. These remnants are brand new, at the end of the production line, ensuring the same exceptional quality as their full-sized counterparts but at a fraction of the cost.

“Remnants are simply rolls of carpet that mills cannot sell themselves because they are a smaller length than a full roll. What does that mean for customers? You get brand name carpet in custom sizes for 50 to 70 percent off retail prices.” explains Wayne Hanscom of Magarian Rug, a leading remnant retailer on the North Shore.  


Magarian Rug saw a gap in the market for offering luxurious yet eco- and budget-friendly options for home decor. Wool remnants were the perfect solution — beautiful, high-quality materials that would otherwise go to waste. By purchasing and repurposing these remnants, they are not only offering customers exceptional rugs but also contributing to a more sustainable future. “Quality is paramount for us. We source our remnants directly from reputable manufacturers. Every rug we offer is brand new and of the highest quality,” says Hanscom.

Why choose remnants?

High-end wool remnants offer several benefits compared to purchasing a new roll of wool:

Cost-effectiveness: Remnants are sold at a discounted price compared to full rolls. This makes them a more affordable option for those looking to incorporate high-quality wool into their home décor without breaking the bank.

Sustainability: By repurposing end-of-the-roll materials, high-end wool remnants contribute to reducing waste and minimizing environmental impact. This aligns with the growing trend towards sustainable living and allows consumers to make eco-conscious choices in their home furnishings.

Customization: Remnants offer flexibility in terms of size and shape, allowing for greater customization. Whether you need a small area rug for a cozy corner or a large statement piece for a spacious room, remnants can be tailored to fit your specific requirements, ensuring a perfect fit for your space.

Quality assurance: Despite being remnants, high-end wool remnants still maintain the same level of quality as full rolls. Moreover, the resurgence of wool as a premier material further enhances the allure of these remnants. Renowned for its durability, softness, and natural beauty, wool epitomizes luxury like no other fiber. Its resilience ensures that these rugs not only exude elegance but also stand the test of time, making them a worthwhile investment for discerning connoisseurs.

Unique designs: Remnants often come in unique patterns or color variations that may not be available in full rolls. This allows for the creation of one-of-a-kind rugs that add character and personality to your space, making a statement that is distinctly yours.
