GRAPHIC RUGS - CLASS IT UP

We have a couple of clients right now who are looking for rugs for their home so rugs are at the forefront of my mind. And here's what I'm thinking as I'm looking through all these rugs...there is a fine line in the graphic rug department between cool and classy and trendy and expected.

Graphic rugs have been a favorite for a long time because they add some pattern to a room and aren't as traditional as oriental or indian rugs. Here are some of my favorite graphic rugs that achieve the coolness while also being very high-end looking.

My favorite rug designer...Madeline Weinrib

rich in color - blue + silver is a beautiful combo



the only way to do a color like this in your home


why does this remind me of Hermes?


art deco cool


pinwheel interpreted for adults


very cool graphic and in orange even cooler

Okay, so enough of my girl, Madeline.
Here are a few others...

the cool trellis rug


a different kind of stripe


Serena and Lily's blue art deco rug




And here are some photos of graphic rugs done right in a room...(notice the scale of the rug pattern in relation to the size of the room + rug)

beautiful!


with a really bold rug, keep the furniture simple


the ever popular but always fantastic black + white stripe rug


a lot going on, but it works!


here is the Weinrib rug in all it's glory


a great way to enter


super classy girls room


mid-century cool


Weinrib again

As you know there are a kajillion (don't know how many that is) more photos and rugs to pick from. Make sure to follow my RUGS board on Pinterest if you are in the market for a great rug!

  3. Completely agree. I'm finding it harder and harder, actually, to find good graphic rugs that I haven't yet seen ALL over the web and in everyone's homes. These are great options, thanks!
