WELCOME TO LYRISE AND CO.

Born from a love of colour, pattern and textiles, Lyrise and Co are passionate about sharing this love to add warmth, beauty and soul to your home.

Growing up in a home adorned with our own beautiful kilims from my grandfather’s family village in Pirot Yugoslavia, helped cement my appreciation for the dying skill of these unparalleled hand woven rugs.  My great grandmother’s Kilim still hangs on my parents’ wall, after spending years as a floor rug.  It is well over 80 years old, in as new condition and the colours are still vibrant.  Another Kilim rug my oldest brother has in his home is in the same condition.  These were made to last.

 

Our Turkish Kilim cushion covers have almost always originated from a well loved vintage rug. These rugs may have been damaged or worn from years of use.  Since there is still so much beauty and life left in the rug, what parts can be salvaged are recycled and sewn into cushion covers.  Not one is the same, they are all individual pieces and can sometimes have flaws, signs of wear or the odd, small mend here and there.  This is what makes these authentic and treasures.  These covers are all professionally washed and ready to use in your home.  

THE REAL BEAUTY ABOUT KILIM CUSHION COVERS .....   THERE ARE NO RULES!!  Mix and match or find ones that compliment each other or clash the colours and covers.  Have fun!!

 

Our vintage Turkish rugs are either hand loomed or hand knotted.  The age of our rugs can range from 30-80 years.  They have been lovingly cared for and have lived a rich life with many, more years left to shine.  These are carefully selected and are in fantastic condition, they are not brand new or 100% perfect but this is what is so charming about them.  No one will have the same.  Again, these rugs are professionally washed and ready to use. 

Vintage rugs are timeless pieces and are one of the few things that increase in value with age!

 

Prices reflect the age of each piece and which area of Turkey they are from.  

 

Our name Lyrise and Co has come about from our three children’s names;         Lyric, Trelise and Nico.

ENJOY.
