Last week I shared with you my new rug from RugsUSA. They have long been my go-to source for rugs because they always have a sale going and you can get a quality rug for next-to-nothing. And they have any style imaginable. In my opinion, rugs are one of, if not the most important elements in a room when it comes to expressing your style. Often times a rug is my jumping off point because I believe it sets the tone for the whole room. Calm and neutral? Bright and vibrant? Modern and patterned? You can tell a lot about room based on the rug.
When I am choosing a rug for a client I usually start my search based on my conversations with them. Have they said they want the room to be relaxing or kid-proof? Do they want the rug to fall softly into the background or pack a punch? Once I know the feel they are going for I focus on specific colors. Once I have the right feel and color I narrow in on specifics like, pattern, material, size, and shape. Here are just a few samples of rugs I have sourced in design boards:
