Our latest Washable Capsule Collection is finally here—and we’re so excited to share it with you! Chic, contemporary, and just the right amount of glam, the Kiva Brent Edit is ready to wow in your space. This curation of machine washable rugs was hand-picked by stylist and content creator Kiva Brent, who’s known for her ability to create spaces that are both stylish and affordable. In honor of the launch, we sat down with her to get her thoughts on the collection, hear about her favorite designs, and talk all things washable rugs!
Q: What drew you to partner with Rugs USA?
A: “I’m all about functional spaces, and these washable rugs by Rugs USA allow you to craft a beautiful, livable home.”
Q: How would you describe your personal design aesthetic? How is that reflected in the styles you chose for your capsule collection?
A: “My design style is very modern—I love clean lines, a muted color palette, and layered textures. The rugs in my collection have so much texture that the spaces they occupy are visually interesting even if there is limited use of color. My rugs also add some softness, which makes any modern home more inviting.”
Q: How are washable rugs useful for you?
A: “We have a dog and he runs the household, which means dirty paws often find their way onto rugs and other textiles. I love that whenever there’s a mess, I can just pop these rugs into the washing machine and they’re good as new! Also, I love to host and entertain. Washable rugs allow me to have a well-designed home that we can comfortably live and host in without being paranoid about messes.”
Q: What do you look for in a good washable rug?
A: “When it comes to a good washable rug, I look for something super pliable! It has to be able to fit into the washing machine.”
Q: What is your experience with other washable rugs, and why do you recommend the Rugs USA washables?
A: “Rugs USA offers so many different styles of washable rugs. Other companies exclusively have printed washable rugs, but Rugs USA has rugs that are made of varying fibers—so you don’t have to sacrifice the texture element for the sake of durability! My favorite rugs from my collection are actually made of wool!”
Q: What are your top three favorite rugs in your capsule collection, and why?
A: “First, the Isabelle Washable Bars Rug. It’s so soft on the feet and really brightens up my dining area. Plus, the contrast behind the light and dark fibers is so striking!
“Second, I like to think of rugs as ‘floor art,’ and The Delores Washable Wool Rug is like the perfect abstract painting.
“Third, the Alaina Washable Fence Rug has a vibrant pattern that makes you do a double take! It creates visual interest while remaining neutral in color.”
Q: If you could give someone only one piece of advice for styling rugs, what would it be?
A: “Bigger is always better when it comes to rugs! Also, remember that you can always layer rugs, too.”
Q: What’s a fun fact about you?!
A: “Even though I love white furniture and textiles, I spill something just about every day. That’s why I love washable rugs!
“Also, I’m an interior stylist, but my degree is actually in the natural sciences!”
