3 Area Rugs to Elevate Any Space


The area rug: often referred to as design's unsung hero, and for good reason. A great rug can bring a room together like nothing else, bringing in style, functionality and a bit of luxury all at once."Area rugs can elevate any space of your home," said interior designer and the founder of RugKnots Naheed Mir. "They don't just cover the flooring; they add texture to a room and create warmth in an otherwise cold or sterile setting. When you feel your home is missing something, it might be time to add an area rug."So if you're looking for a quick way to refresh your home this spring, here are three of my favorite area rug finds of the moment. 


Novogratz Indoor/Outdoor Dash Rug: Inspired by cool subtle Scandinavian design, this ivory-colored rug is the perfect option for fans of clean, minimalist style. Its dispersed black lines on a grid, will help add a modern touch to your home decor. But even better, it offers two looks in one. When you flip it over, the colors invert to a bold black background with ivory-colored stripes. I currently have this rug in my 2-year-old son's bedroom and love how it helps balance out the other pops of color from his superhero-themed decor.

BenchMade Modern

The Madison RugFans of Scandinavian style will also love this option from BenchMade Modern. Crafted from undyed New Zealand wool, this piece is plush and inviting, while still keeping a contemporary edge. It features a tribal-inspired design, adding texture and geometric interest to any space in need of a cozy accent. I currently have this rug in my master bedroom. It was an easy way to elevate the space while still keeping the décor crisp, neutral and relaxing. This rug could also be a great way to add interest to a neutral living room.


4-Pelt Premium Australian Sheepskin Area RugIf luxuriously plush rugs are more your style, look no further than this option by Overland. Naturally shaped for a rustic feel, this luxurious area rug is made from fine Australian sheepskin. It looks and feels fantastic, whether used as a rug, a throw, or as part of a master bedroom suite.
