Rugs are so important! They set the tone for your space whether it is a relaxing and peaceful master bedroom or a lively and energetic playroom you are creating. My favorite website to source rugs for my clients is having a huge 80% off sale! No you didn't just pass out. You read that right... 80% off! I just snapped up two 8x10 rugs for our living room and master bedroom for a total of $350. You have no idea how giddy that makes me! Below I have rounded up eight really great looking rugs and detailed how I see them fitting into a home. If you are needing help choosing one for your home shoot me a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I would LOVE to help you set the tone in your space with the perfect rug!
The Marrakesh Shag Rug is perfect for a low traffic area. Possibly in the master bedroom or home office. I would not recommend using this in a living room or family room. While I dream about this rug in my home office one day, I know that little Miss Evie Bee would think that I brought home a giant fuzzy toy with tug of war strings attached for her to play with... yikes. It is so dreamy and plush! Perfect for a room that needs a subtle statement piece to layer upon.
This low pile rug would be perfect for a high traffic area like a living room. Its busy pattern would totally disguise those muddy paw prints (Wait is that just at my house? haha) and the blues and greens are wide enough a part on the color spectrum that you could mix a lot of different colors and patterns into a room with this rug. My friends Mckenzie and Abby have this rug in their living room with the most gorgeous velvet blue antique chair that has me dreaming of my some day blue velvet Anthropologie Chesterfield!
These overdyed statement rugs have been popping up all over the place lately. I would love to have this in my home office someday, but I'm not sure Trey would go for it in the living room. It is still low pile so its low maintenance, but when choosing these bright beauties you really have to go for it in the rest of the room with tons of layers of texture and color. Otherwise it will stick out like a light bright on your floor.
I'm not sure why this is called the Tuscan rug, but I envision this rug in a little girl's room or kids playroom. I'd also use it in a girl's living room or apartment and layer an eclectic vibe on top of it with the finds found on her travels. Doesn't that just make you want to know more about her? Sorry that's the writer in me!
This Treasure Rug is now my treasure as it is one of the rugs that is on its way to my house! I love how subtle the pattern is, but it still makes makes an interesting statement that you can layer other colors on. I would put this in a master bedroom or living room or entryway. For our house, this one will probably end up in the master bedroom because we have a cool blue and light grey color scheme going on in there. Stay tuned for how I style it!
This is the second rug that hopped into my cart. As you can see I like my rugs to be interesting, but not overpowering. I find it easier to switch out decor when your rug isn't competing with the rest of the room. I switch up my decor pretty often though so if you want a statement rug and leave things as is then go for it! I always love seeing a statement rug done magically. I'm interested to see the variation in color in person and can't wait to see how it pairs with the emerald velvet chair I picked up from the ReStore a couple months ago. Stay tuned on this one as well! They may end up doing a switcheroo and end up in different spaces than I planned! Who knows!
You can never go wrong with a natural fiber rug like a jute rug. Plus this arrow pattern adds extra interest to this rug. I'm not big on classic chevron because it has been majorly overused in the last couple of years, but I think this pattern is different enough that it doesn't exactly fall into the classic chevron category. I envision this rug under a farm style dining table with mix and match modern chairs in a very white and bright space.
If my house was more modern, this baby would have definitely jumped into my cart. I love that it is still a geometric pattern, but with a twist. Sometimes geometric rugs in "grown up" spaces can really set a juvenile tone, which has to do with the color of the rug as well, but I think this rug does the perfect job of geometric with a unpredictable edge. Also I like how it has angles and curves and not just one or the other. I envision this rug in a living room with a brass and glass coffee table and a couch with a ton of different patterned pillows.
Well there you have it! Eight great rugs to kick off your shopping adventure!
