A rug is a quintessential piece of decor that can be used in any space. Yet, there are more styles to choose from that many would think. Instead of just finding a utilitarian option, consider how your rug can tie in to the rest of your decor. A great rug can even become a statement piece whereas it may have just blended into the background.
Consider these 6 styles of rugs.
1. Black and White Stripes
Black and white stripes are a classic, fun design that can add dimension and playfulness to any room. But that doesn’t mean that the design needs to be expected! Take this rug and its not-quite-straight black and white stripes and how it adds just a bit extra to what you’d expect when looked at a little more closely.
2. Au Natural
Natural, organic looks have a grounding effect on the atmosphere and the best way to get started is to start with the ground – or the rug.
Work in an earth-toned rug and match with other natural tones – such as a sofa or armchair.
3. Geometrics and Fun Designs
Believe it or not, a rug can be a statement piece if chosen well. This geometric, southwestern rug when positioned against the solid coloring of sofa and coffee table stands out and becomes a focal point of the room.
Rugs do not need to blend into the background, they can be a focal point too. There’s no denial that this rug makes this room’s decor status to the next level.
4. Classic Cowhide
Cowhide rugs have a distinctive, rustic look, yet they can fit in many different styled homes. From farmhouse, rustic, country, modern and even industrial, cowhide rugs have a very unique, yet commanding look.
For homes going with black and white color tones, a cowhide rug can make the perfect addition.
5. Fur Rugs
Nothing is more lavish or luxurious than fur rugs. Warm, soft, and fun for the kids (and probably you, too) to lay on, these rugs always stand out to guests. So, for homes with hardwood flooring, these rugs work great in living rooms, but especially in bedrooms, so that you don’t touch the cold floor first thing out of bed.
Moroccan is also a classic style that continue to withstand the test of time. Many of the best, hand-knotted rugs come out of Morocco currently and feature intricate weavings and geometric patterns.
