Rugs play a huge part in the design of our interiors. Ranging from bold to subtle, a fabulous rug can elevate any space. A neutral color rug can be a soft sophisticated complement to your furnishings. Or in a bold color, it becomes a statement piece. I love layering a large sisal rug with a smaller, colored rug to add texture. It’s a fun way to create a casual, relaxing vibe.

No matter what rug the team is sourcing, it must match our client’s lifestyle. Any rug we bring into their home should be luxurious, functional, and stand up to everyday use.

Since we don’t adhere to one design style at, we’re sourcing rugs of all shapes, styles, and color pathways. Having a handful of fabulous rug showrooms we can source from makes it easier to find the perfect rug for our client’s home. Madison Lily Rugs, Stark Carpet, and The Rug Company are a few showrooms that have impressive selections.

Whether you’re looking for an antique rug or something more modern, here are eight gorgeous rug designs that work for any interior.

Moroccan design is known for the use of bright colors and bold patterns. This one-of-a-kind, vintage Kilim wool rug is the perfect way to add a subtle touch of color and pattern into a room. The playful pattern and color palette make it a great rug for your kiddo’s playroom.

Matt Camron Antique Malayer Runner

Antique malayer runner in blues, browns, and creams

I love the elevated boho vibe of this Antique Malayer runner from Matt Camron. The traditional design is the perfect complement for a modern space. It’s beautiful, yet casual, and would look perfect in a kitchen or foyer.

Works of Art

Tai Ping Eclipse

Tai Ping creates stunning rugs that are designed to make a statement in your interior. They’re impeccably made and true works of art.  A few years ago I had the pleasure of creating a Tai Ping x limited-edition capsule collection. Each design consisted of hand-knotted, hand-tufted rugs made with premium materials like silk and cashmere. With their diverse and quality product range and from my own personal experience –  you can’t go wrong sourcing from them!

This Tai Ping rug is gorgeous! It’s a part of their Eclipse Collection that takes inspiration from Asian culture and modern influences. The pieces in this collection are full of ornate and abstract details. I love the neutral tones and the delicate flowers in the design!

Bloom by Jeff Leatham

My favorite rugs that pull together any interior

This bold rug takes inspiration from a bouquet of flowers. Pulling hues from roses and lilies, the Bloom Collection by Jeff Leatham for Tai Ping is full of vivid colors. It’s the perfect rug for making a bold statement in a dining room. It would look stunning with these round back dining chairs with a polished frame.

This Brink Ivory rug by Kelly Wearstler for The Rug Company is gorgeous! The contrasting black and white color palette add drama in a delicate way. The rug’s structured geometric design mixed with the free form dot pattern is modern and fresh. This rug is the perfect balance of sleek, structured lines and organic patterns.

Elegantly Understated

Kravet Cozumel Indigo Rug

If you’re looking for a rug reminiscent of the ocean, this Cozumel – Indigo rug from Kravet is for you. The beautiful shades of blue mimic the water and bring movement to the design. This rug would look right at home in a beach house.

The Mirage Citrus from Madison Lily Rugs is the perfect rug for balancing masculine and feminine styles. The bright pink, orange, and energetic red liven up the rug while the gray keeps it from feeling overly feminine. I could see this rug in a shared home office or a master sitting room.
