Here are five fun and fashionable rug designs that will bring life to the dreariest of rooms. Short of painting the wall in a room, there isn’t too many other options to brightening up a large portion of a room. Using a new rug can be a great way to add the textures and colors that you need to pull all your accent pieces together. Unlike paint, a new rug can easily be replaced when you want to switch up the décor in a room. Below are five great rugs with interesting patterns, colors, textures, and materials.
Kabuki Cotton Printed Dhurrie
Blue is a very versatile color. This Kabuki rug, inspired by Japanese elements has many different patterns and shades of blue in one rug. Made of cotton, this would be a great rug to match with furniture that is monochromatic or neutral.
This hand-woven wool carpet is a perfect alternative to plaid. It has the faded hint of a plaid rug, but without the overwhelming perpendicular lines that make plaid so hard to match with different kinds of furniture. This could be a laid back version for those wanting a hint of the classic pattern it pays tribute to.
Samaya Soymak Jute
This is made out of jute fiber which is similar to rope. The earthy browns and pattern are an asset to any room. Though the colors are mostly neutrals, the materials are what make this stand out. The knotted ends of the rug really give it character. This is another hand-woven beauty.
Faded Ikat Wool
Ikat is a very popular pattern right now. This rug has an ikat pattern that blends from one color to the next giving it a dreamy appearance. Made of wool, this piece could be paired with simple or bold furniture.
