Red rugs are a tried-and-true way to create a focal point in your home while livening up your space. They add warmth, depth, and a sense of coziness while giving any room a classic feel. For an even more timeless look, opt for a red rug in a Persian-style design.
This cozy living room is grounded by a classic rug in rich reds accented with deep blues and touches of gold. It’s a visually compelling contrast to the off-white couch that infuses the space with lively energy. We love how the throw pillows subtly reflect the colors seen throughout the rug design.
This dining room rug is the perfect example of a design that commands attention. We love how it draws the eye straight to the center of the room, highlighting the light wood dining table in all its glory. It also adds an air of sophistication thanks to its elegant and intricate design, reminiscent of a Persian rug.
White rugs have the ability to brighten up your space significantly while simultaneously boosting its comfort factor, no matter whether you go monochrome or opt for a minimal design. And with our signature washability, you never have to stress about keeping your white rug clean.
This bathroom is proof that even minimalist rugs can have a big impact. This plush design is not only functional as a way to keep yourself from slipping and sliding, but also brings an extra layer of vibrance and texture to the space.
The Moroccan Diamond Plush Rug is a best seller for a reason: It’s equal parts sophisticated and cozy. Seen here, it makes this living room feel extra warm and inviting. By the same token, it balances the space’s already-colorful palette while drawing out the white in the wall art.
Blue rugs have a tendency to make your home feel more tranquil and serene, thanks to the color’s connection to the water and the sky. Opt for a floral or medallion print for a classic look.
This setup epitomizes the word “relaxing.” The choice of a round rug was brilliant in that it highlights the seating arrangement, which is undeniably the focal point of this space. Likewise, the colors are as dreamy as it gets, as it comprises complementary shades of blues, as seen in the shutters and door frame and visually compelling contrasts, like the stately red chairs.
Have you ever seen a kitchen so lovely? While this space is predominantly white, the subtle pops of blue throughout (see: the checkered tea kettle and throw pillows) give it a classic look. Their choice of a kitchen rug combines both colors in a traditional pattern.
Striped rugs are a versatile addition to any space and complement just about every aesthetic, be it minimalist or maximalist. Available in different colorways and line thicknesses, there are so many different ways to embrace the classic design.
Nothing is as classic as a black and white color combo. Notice how this outdoor rug elongates the space with its mix of thin and bold stripes. It also looks really elegant teamed with the chairs, which also boast an open-air linear pattern in the backrest.
Now here’s an example of a classic stripe design with a modern twist. It features charcoal horizontal offset lines on a white background. Here, it’s paired with boho-style decor, but a design this timeless will look good in countless other spaces, be it indoor or outdoor.
