Selecting beautiful wool area rugs can be a daunting task—there are so many options! But since choosing the right rug can make or break a room, it’s important to consider a few things. Will the rug be the focal point of the floor, or mostly be covered up by furniture? Is there an existing color palette to the room’s décor that can be complemented or accented? What kind of atmosphere are you trying to bring into the room? Thinking about these questions while you browse the extensive collection of rugs might help narrow down your choices.
Rectangular wool area rugs are the most common shape, but it’s possible to find great circular rugs, too—these look great in a master bedroom. If a round rug is just the thing, try black with a floral border for supreme elegance. Rugs that feature traditionally intricate designs often feature a center medallion surrounded by a landscape of floral-inspired patterns, framed along the sides by a complementary color. The variations on this classic heriz style are practically endless, with eastern influences colliding with western aesthetics to create truly modern rugs. Accents such as fringes give each rug its own personality, while special washes and treatments ensure longevity.
