Their collections consist of stylish rugs woven in natural fibres, beautiful furniture pieces that offer all aspects of living and dining, an array of soft furnishings and linens and stunning decor pieces.

Arro Home recognises and is responding to shifting global demographics, where people are seeking a true lifestyle balance that informs how a home functions and serves.. and we absolutely love this about them!

This season see's the return of the ottoman which comes in three sizes and in a gorgeous array of colours. Their range of rugs are colourful, tactile, have the most gorgeous tasselling and some feature graphic imagery. And let's not forget the velvets... oh so gorgeous!


"We don't know about you, but we can already see ourselves sprawled out in the Oscar chair, feet hanging over the side, book in our lap. We're relaxed just thinking about it, actually. Mmm..." says Arro Home.


“Inspired rugs pair with monochrome cushions and revamped Arro favourites meet with modern twists. We introduce a versatile new colour-range of velvet ottomans alongside our lounge chairs and sofas. And we lift the layers on our entire collection with tasselled cushions and rugs. Arro Home brings together contemporary trends in urban living to cater for a world of movers: those who want to curate their space, even if the place isn’t permanent. From sprawling homes to studio apartments, we believe in the potential to make your space anew and do it from the ground up.” says Arro Home


""Go on. Put your feet up. You've earned it," is what the Aloft ottoman would say to you if it could. Who are we to argue? In a sumptuous rust velvet with a subtle sheen, you'll wonder where this ottoman has been all your life. Also comes in Small and Tall." says Arro Home.


"With its tassel texture and jewel tones, the Miette Rug (centre) is one sassy showstopper! Whether you pop it in your living room or your bedroom (or your office, or your dining room), this woven kilim rug is sure to make your space feel special." says Arro Home


Introducing Ames.... new to Meizai


Ames Creative Director Ana María Calderón Kayser not only lives between different cultures herself, but since establishing her label, has also been collaborating with designers from different countries to develop furniture and interior accessories that would appeal to the hearts and minds of cosmopolitans.

True to this tradition, the Sala collection designed by Sebastian Herkner is shaped by various cultural influences. For his Ames Sala collection, he ventured into two new territories: Colombia was a new destination for him and, for the first time, he developed an entire home collection.

The result is a range of modern home accessories, including throws, rugs, cushions, vases, baskets and bowls whose forms and colours reflect the diversity and characteristics of Colombia.

Meizai is proud to be the exclusive distributor of Ames products in Australia in partnership with Halcyon Lake who is distributing the range of rugs from the Sala Collection.

The ames sala collection is inspired by Colombia and its people and by traditional Colombian crafts. The country’s diversity and characteristics are mirrored in the products’ shapes and colours. I was particularly inspired by the archetypical forms I encountered in Bogotá’s Gold Museum, the Museo del Oro. The home collection features my signature style but it is rooted in Colombia, where all the products in the collection are handcrafted according to time-honoured traditions.” - Sebastian Herkner

My top tips for choosing a rug for your home...


Brought to you by Nuffnang and Carpet Call.

When buying a rug there's a lot more to choose than just colour! You need to think about size, pile depth, placement, shape and style – and that’s where Carpet Call comes in! They have a great range of super affordable, high quality designer rugs that will instantly brighten any room and bring it to life.

I was lucky enough to choose three of their modern rugs to style in my own home, to not only show you how great they look but to help guide you on the best size and placement for your own home.

For my dining room I chose the  Layton Outdoor Rug  as it’s easy to clean, it matches my decor and has the perfect pile and texture for a ‘food area’.

For your dining room or kitchen, it’s important to choose a shallow pile rug as it will be much easier to keep clean in an area where food and high traffic are involved. When choosing a rug for under your dining table it is really there to ‘zone’ the space, so ensure your table and chairs all fit on the rug. Measure first, move furniture around to check and then decide on what will suit your space.

For my bedroom I chose the  Jordan Modern Rug  as I love the pattern and colours but it’s also sooooo soft and fluffy!

For your bedroom choose a smaller rug and place it under the foot of your bed, coming approximately half way up. As an alternative option you could place a smaller rug to the side of the bed, where your feet land when you get out. For the bedroom think cosy, thick deep pile that feels luxurious under foot.

For my lounge I wanted neutral and earthy tones with lots of texture, so I went for  Links Modern.

In your lounge room, generally a large sized rug is a great choice for the centrepiece of your room. Ensure the rug you choose compliments your furniture, interior décor and fits with your current furniture layout. Rugs are the perfect item to add another element of texture and softness to your space.

My Top Tips for choosing a rug for your lounge:

-          In a small space place the rug in front of the sofa.

-          In a large open space, I like the sofa to sit on the rug or even just the two front legs if your rug isn’t large enough for it to fit completely.

-          If you have occasional chairs, put their front legs on the rug.

-          For a modular sofa the bigger the rug the better.

-          If you have two sofas position the rug in the centre between them.

You don’t need to be super matchy matchy when choosing a rug for your home, however it does need to compliment the space.  Ensure it stands out from your original floor colour and then you can be as tame or as bold as you feel! Texture is key for bringing the most out of your room, so find something that adds a depth, you might like woven, woollen or shag, choose something you love!

Carpet Call has rugs in all shapes and sizes and some of them are HUGE which we love! They have free delivery and they also let you take up to three rugs home for 24hours to confirm that you love love love it, how good is that?!
