New Rug Arrivals

You can revitalize any space with a beautiful new area rug. Shop the newest arrivals of area rugs to find the latest looks and keep your space looking fresh. 

Why Take a Look at New Arrivals  

Some of the latest rug trends include: 

  • Patterned Rugs: Unlike the rugs of the past, which mostly featured abstract or geometric designs and cooler tones, newer rugs are starting to embrace colour and distinct patterns. Persian and Moroccan rugs are a popular example of this style, with their complex patterns and warm colours.  
  • Layering: It has become increasingly popular to layer a rug on carpet to distinguish between different areas. People are also adding an area rug with a bold design on top of a larger, more subtle rug to create contrast. For those who want to make more of a statement, you can even mix two rugs with bright colours or bold patterns to create a truly unique design piece. 
  • Natural Fibres: In the past, silk and wool ruled the rug world, but recently people have been embracing more natural materials and colours. Whether it’s eco-friendly materials or undyed fabrics, these rugs give a nod to nature. Jute is particularly popular among this trend, which also creates rugs that are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. 

Navigating Your Options 

When choosing the ideal rug for you and your home, you should consider a few key details to help you narrow down your choices, like: 

  • Size: First and foremost, you need to decide how big of an area rug you need and the ideal shape. The best way to figure this out is to measure the room or the area you’re hoping to cover. If, for example, you are looking for a rug for your hallway, a long, rectangular runner is ideal. You just need to decide how long you need the runner to be.  
  • Placement in the home: Where you’re hoping to place the rug in your home can have a huge influence on the materials, shape, size, and even rug thickness that you choose. You’d probably want a lush, comfortable rug, like shag, for your bedroom, while another rug would be more suitable and durable for high-traffic areas. 
  • Flooring type: Depending on the existing flooring, you may choose to embrace or avoid certain colours or patterns. Take into account the flooring in the room where you’re hoping to install your area rug and let it guide your choices. 
  • Construction: Different methods are used to create different types of rugs, such as flat-woven, machine-made, hand-tufted, and hand-knotted. You can see the differences in the texture, thickness, and durability of the rug. 
  • Material: You can choose from a number of materials for your rug based on your space and personal preference, including, silk, wool, polyester, cotton, and acrylic.
