I’d love a hand woven rug! –@easternuniversal
Handmade rugs are some of our favorites. They add such beautiful, unique charm to a space with their perfectly imperfect weave—and lovely texture that simply can’t be beat. Here are our favorite woven styles!
I’m looking for a rug that’s tan and black. –@klmakin
We love this combo! Black and tan paired together make for the most pleasing contrast—creating a chic look that feels like a fresh way to use neutrals. Here are a few of our faves we think will look great in your space!
If ease of cleaning and durability is important to you, consider choosing one of our washable or outdoor rugs. We love our Aztec Prism Indoor/Outdoor rug in charcoal, Striped Banded Indoor/Outdoor rug in charcoal, and Violeta Timeless Medallion Washable rug for your tan and black color palette.
Modern and Durable
What are rugs that are neutral, modern, and kid/pet friendly? –@katielynndavis13
We have tons of styles that fit this bill. (So many, we know, that it can be hard to wade through them all!) Here are a few suggestions to give you some inspiration and get you started on finding that perfect rug!
In terms of being kid- and pet-friendly, you really can’t get any better than our washable rugs. Any time a mess is made on the rug, all you have to do is roll it up, toss it in the washer and dryer, then roll it back out. Easy! Some of our favorite neutral and modern styles are the Tribal Banded Washable rug, Reverse Herringbone Washable rug, and Faded Abstract Washable rug. Check the rest of our washable styles out here!
Our collection of outdoor rugs also make especially durable picks for households with kids and pets. And they feel and look just as luxurious as their indoor counterparts. We love the Solid Braided Indoor/Outdoor rug, Textured Banded Indoor/Outdoor rug, and Indoor/Outdoor Trellis with Tassels rug.
Other durable styles are made with materials like wool and synthetic fibers like polyester. We suggest taking a look at our wool Paddle rug (shown above!), wool and cotton Shaggy Crosshatch rug, and our polyester Textured Cable Trellis Tassel rug.
Warm and Inviting
One with warm colors but not obnoxious looking. I have a warm and wood combination aesthetic. –@camiloduga
We love a warm color scheme! Warm hues in shades of reds, golds, and browns feel so welcoming and inviting, and are such a natural complement to wood flooring. We’ve broken down our favorite warm-toned rugs by color here!
A Dining Companion
What are some rugs that can go under a round dining table? –@jenkonicles
When it comes to finding a rug to pair with a round dining table, you have so many great options. We love choosing a round style to echo the shape of the rug, but you can also go with square and rectangular shapes as well. Here’s what we think will look amazing with your round table!
If you’re concerned about spills and messes from food and drink, consider choosing a washable rug, which will be super easy to clean if said messes happen. Check out our Audrina Persian Washable rug, Diamond Mosaic Washable rug, and Tribal Mural Washable rug to see a few of our favorites.
A lot of our rugs come in round shapes (and multiple sizes at that!), but we think round jute styles look particularly great in the dining room, adding a note of polish and texture. Take a look at the Solid Braided Indoor/Outdoor rug, Jute Braided rug, and Jute Braided Saturn Border rug (seen above).
If you don’t want a washable rug, but still want something that will help conceal spills, we recommend going with something that has pattern and a mix of colors, like our Ripple Waves rug, Flourishing Medallion rug, or Modern Minimalist rug.
