Give the Gift of a New Rug

Give the Gift of a New Rug

Dec 1, 2022

You get a rug! You get a rug! You get a rug! Ok, maybe you don’t give everyone a rug, but with so many different patterns and styles like Persian rugs, Turkish rugs, Safavieh rugs, vintage or antique… there is sure to be a rug that fits any style. ‘Tis the season for gift giving and a beautiful one-of-a-kind area rug is bound to be on someone’s wish list, even if it’s just your own. Take a peek at some of our favorite designs and learn how you can transform any room in your home by adding an Aladdin rug or accent piece to the mix. 

Muted Neutrals

Some might say that muted or neutral rugs are boring, but that’s far from the truth. Neutral rugs can complement many spaces and add texture to a room. And they’re perfect for just about any style or aesthetic. Why? Flexibility. The muted hues will not pull attention away from other, bolder décor elements, making it a complementary piece. An ivory, gray or beige oriental rug with just the right amount of tufting or fringe, can add warmth to an otherwise cool space and create a cozy and inviting atmosphere that makes you feel right at home. Another great way to use a neutral rug is to pair it with bright or bold colors to make the neutral rug pop. Or take a more layered approach with additional neutrals with a variety of shades and textures. The white look never goes out of style.

Neutral area rugs make great gifts for someone who isn’t a serial maximalist and would appreciate the subtlety of a rug that won’t compete with their furnishings.

Bright and Bold

Go bold or go home? In this case, we decide to go bold IN our home. These rugs work well if you’re not quite ready to put bright paint on the walls, but still want that vibrant, happy feel. Brighter colors don’t seem so “Fools Rush In” when they’re on the floor. It’s an opportunity to indulge in a fun hue without it being quite so permanent as paint or wallpaper. We recommend choosing a couple of colors that are currently in said room and match a rug with those colors in it to enhance, but not overpower the ambiance. 

Have you been told that you are unique and express individuality? If so, this is the perfect style of rug to gift yourself.

Geometric Patterns

If a space is needing a bit more energy, geometric patterns are where it’s at. Bright and bold or neutral, this particular style is going to work well as a focal point or used as the perfect backdrop for your upscale décor. Add some flair with a living room rug that not only stuns but becomes a conversational piece while sitting by the fireplace. Looking for a more vintage bedroom rug, we recommend a more thoughtfully designed pattern that creates an elegant yet warm vibe.

Since these patterned rugs continue to grow in popularity due to their contemporary and modern style, you are sure to leave a smile on anyone’s face with a memorable gift like this.
