Ruby, merlot, rust, maroon… whether bright or more subdued, rolling out a red rug in your space is the perfect way to add both dramatic flair and classic beauty. Luckily, we sell tons of red rugs, and have a lot of ideas on how and why you should bring them to your space! Keep reading to learn how to embrace their bold, warm look.
Red rugs are a classic, always-in-style pick.
If you’re on the hunt for a traditional-leaning rug that will always be in style, consider making a red rug your choice! Red is a classic color in interiors—especially when it comes to rugs—and has been a go-to color for decorators for centuries. Simply put: You can’t go wrong with a red rug!
They go with an array of other hues.
Another reason we love red rugs so much: They are a color chameleon and complement a wide variety of hues. For example, take the pairing of our faded reddish Sabine Fringe rug and the cobalt blue couch in the room shot above. The jewel-toned shades play off each other beautifully, the blue picking up the cooler tones of the rug. Try out a red rug with any number of other hues, and we think you’ll see a similar type of synergy!
They add rich depth to boho spaces.
One thing that sets red apart from other colors is how rich, saturated, and character-filled it feels. We’re big fans of bringing this kind of energy to textured, playful boho-inspired spaces—as seen with our Moroccan Diamond Shag with Tassels rug in the downright dreamy room above. You have to admit—that shade of red looks pretty amazing as shag!
Red rugs bring in southwest-inspired, desert flair.
Red calls to mind brilliant sunsets and stunning desert landscapes, so it only makes sense that red rugs are the perfect pick for mastering the southwest-inspired look. Try pairing a style like our Southwestern rug seen above with rustic woods, brown accents, and plenty of succulents to nail the desert-chic vibe.
They add a pop of color in neutral spaces.
If you want to make a statement, try letting your rug do all the talking! Rolling out a red rug is a great way to create a bold focal point in your space, especially if the rest of your room is filled with soothing neutrals. We like to think of statement-making rugs like this as art—but for your floors!
Red rugs can pair with nearly any kind of decor.
Red is the epitome of versatile, and is such a great pairing for pretty much any type of decor. We love the idea of pairing a classic red rug with a bold geometric pattern, as seen with our Ornate Medallion Tassel rug and the striped wall in the image above.
They make a great layering piece.
We love a layered look, and rolling out a red rug as the top layer is one of our favorite ways to pull it off! Try starting with a neutral rug on the bottom—we love our textured jutes—and adding a traditional red style on top. Beautiful, classic, and eye-catching!
