Hand-Knotted Wool Rug

All-natural hand-knotted wool rugs are beloved around the world for a reason. Soft, colorful, artisanal, and durable, they are known for their luxurious nature, yet can withstand heavy foot traffic. Even families with new babies and pets can enjoy the beauty of hand-knotted wool rugs because of how hardwearing and easy to clean they are. While often seen as traditional, they can make a beautiful focal point in modern homes as well. 

Natural Grass Rug

Providing a coastal look and feel, natural grass rugs made from jute, sisal, and seagrass are a really popular choice for living rooms. Their rustic, earthy feel and high durability makes them particularly suitable to rental homes and beach houses. You don’t have to worry about renters ruining them as they don’t fray or show wear easily. Plus, they are budget-friendly! Natural grass rugs can also be customized to fit your specific needs.

Outdoor Rug

If you’re looking for a rug that is designed to withstand everything life throws at it, look no further. Indoor/outdoor rugs are made from a blend of synthetic fibers that make them strong, soft, and customizable. Endless designs and colors are possible, from bright to neutral, giving you complete creative control in a way that natural fiber rugs do not.

Outdoors, you can use a performance rug to create a mini living room or delineate space for cozy al fresco dining. Indoor/outdoor rugs are typically waterproof and stain-proof, so they can withstand the elements and any spills from houseguests. Even if you only plan to use your rug indoors, you’ll enjoy how easy they are to take care of in high footfall areas, from the living room to a kids’ play area.

Geometric Rug

Inspired by mid-century modernist design, geometric rugs are very on-trend at the moment. The clean lines and bold patterns of a geometric rug create an eye-catching display in an unlikely place. You can go as subtle as you like with small patterns and a muted color palette. Or, choose a dramatic black and white rug with large geometric shapes to create an artistic statement.

Customized Rug

One of the best reasons to work with us on finding the perfect rug is that we can tailor them to your exact space. Every home is different, and we want to make sure your rug fits perfectly. Stop by our design center and make an appointment and we’ll help you find the rug of your dreams!

Comfortable, Stylish Rugs for Fall

When choosing your rug, there are many factors to consider, from your lifestyle to your budget. You’ll want to consider the impact on your kids, pets, and guests, as well as your own comfort preferences. We know this is a big investment, however, that’s why it’s so important to consider all the options before making your decision. Seeing the rugs in person is a great first step!
