Graphic, checkered rugs: It’s a trend we’ve seen pop up all over interiors in the last year, and one we don’t expect to slow down any time soon. Depending on how you style these rugs, they can add a cool, modernist effect, or a classic look that recalls the traditional diamond harlequin pattern. Either way, they’re guaranteed to make a statement and bring a punch of geometric pattern to your space. Curious on how to get the look, and which rugs to buy to pull it off? Keep on scrolling!
Go all in on modern with checkered rugs.
With its sharp angles and bold repeating pattern, graphic checkered rugs are the perfect companion for modern furnishings and accents. Roll one out amongst sleek, spare furniture and accents with interesting shapes to create a memorable backdrop for your space.
Try a bold look with black.
Love a look that makes a statement? Turn to a checkered rug to get the job done! We love how this black and tan jute style really packs a punch in this space, and how it ties together all the dark and light colors seen throughout the decor.
Go with a classic look.
The great thing about the graphic checkerboard rug trend is that it meshes well with so many different styles. In contrast to the modern look above, this space is full of classic pieces, like intricately carved furniture, antique pieces, and more traditional designs. We love the way the checkered rug here adds contrast with its bold graphic pattern.
Take it outside.
We love the idea of bringing graphic checkered rugs outside. The diamond pattern rolled out on a porch or patio almost looks like checkered tiles, which we love! It’s the perfect way to add a punch of print to your outdoor space—and a soft spot underfoot, too.
