2022 was quite the year, especially when it came to rugs and all the amazing design trends our customers shopped in the last 12 months. With the year coming to a close, we decided to take a look at which styles and trends were most popular, and help you figure out how to bring them into your home in 2023. Without further ado, let’s get into it!
The Top Rugs of 2022
Crafted from a blend of wool and cotton, this rug is like your favorite sweater: cozy and with a luxurious woven construction. Add it to any room to bring in plush, tactile texture—though we love it most rolled out in comfy spaces like the bedroom, living room, and in kids’ rooms.
You can never go wrong with a classic jute rug, which is why this stunning (and affordable!) style snagged the second spot this year. It’s perfect for establishing a neutral, durable foundation in just about any space, and we love layering it with patterned rugs for an extra touch of texture.
If you don’t know our Moroccan Trellis rug by name, chances are you’ve at least seen it before! It’s one of our all-time best-sellers, and it was named “The Rug” by the New York Times, which you can read all about here. We love it for its subtle Moroccan-inspired pattern, which adds just the right amount of “oomph” to any space.
To say we’re obsessed with our Handwoven Jute-Blend rug would be an understatement. And, it seems, you are pretty obsessed too: It has nearly 1,000 positive reviews! Take an up-close look at the rug and it’s easy to see why. With a pleasingly textured pile and beautifully varied neutral coloring, the style makes a subtle but significant impact in any space it lives.
Worried that neutral rugs are boring? Don’t be! This style is proof that they’re anything but, thanks to a chic ribbed texture and extra interest from tassels on the ends. Add it to any space that needs a boost of character and charm and to bring in all the warmth.
The Top Rugs Trends of 2022
1. Neutrals, Neutrals, and More Neutrals
If the top-selling rug styles above are any indication, neutral rugs were HUGE this year! We saw brown rugs and darker neutrals really making a comeback, but those of the lighter variety were also major favorites in 2022. Either way, these neutral styles are certain to add charm, character, and plenty of warmth to any space in your home.
2. Graphic Design
Rugs with bold, graphic motifs—specifically those with checkerboard designs—have been another major trend this year. And we can’t get enough! These rugs are super versatile depending on how you style them, and can bring in a cool modernist look or a classic look that recalls the traditional diamond harlequin pattern.
3. Washable Everything
Another trend we can’t get enough of, and continue to see get more and more popular? Washable rugs! Ours have been flying off the metaphorical shelves since we launched them, and we’re adding more and more styles to our collection all the time. That means it’s easy to find the ideal rug for your space, whether it’s a playful style for a kids’ room or something plush and cozy for the bedroom.
