This is a detailed guide about trendy rugs. These rugs have been ALL OVER Instagram and Pinterest, and if you’re anything like me, you’re curious about where to buy them, how affordable they are, and if they would go with your own personal style.
This list of 12 rugs includes trends that you’ve seen take over social media. And don’t worry – I’ll include links so that you can shop and see exactly how much everything costs. Along the way I’ll share some tips about how to style these rugs as well!
These trendy rugs are sooo cute. When I see something I really like on Instagram or Pinterest, I instantly want to know more. This list of 12 trendy rugs is a deep dive on what’s trendy right now, where to shop, and how to include a rug in your home in a way that is uniquely YOU.
The price range of these rugs starts as low as $29 and goes up to $1,600. A lot of these rugs come in different sizes, so of course the smaller sizes come at a less expensive price. And some of the more expensive rugs come in very large sizes, which is where the $1,600 price point comes from.
With rugs, it’s really helpful to know the dimensions that you would like and go from there. I definitely understand grappling with the price and the size, though. I’ve bought smaller rugs because I love the way that they look and I’ve also sacrificed style to get a larger size. Do what works best for you! Often it really depends on the space you’re working with.
This post is all about trendy rugs. Let’s get into it!
1. Moroccan Trellis Area Rug from Rugs USA
This one is a good one. It’s an affordable price and is a great option for a funky rug for your living room or even your bedroom. This definitely looks more high end than it is because of the variation throughout the print – some areas are a little more faded and others are darker.
Also, this rug comes in so many different colors so don’t be afraid to get a little bit more playful with your color choice. I like this black and white one too because then you have lots of freedom to layer in more color with other furniture and decor.
Styling tip: This rug was born to pair with natural greenery. Bring in some plants to whatever room it’s in and your coziness will rise exponentially.
2. Checkerboard Shaggy Rug
Brace yourself, because we’re about to do a deep dive into checkerboard rugs! If that’s not your thing, skip ahead to number 7 because we’re gonna be here for a while. Checkerboard rugs have been EVERYWHERE lately.
This one comes in 7 different colors. And I actually like all of them! Which doesn’t always happen when there are that many color ways. The checkerboard trend isn’t going anywhere, and it’s something that can flow into many different design styles. If you love this but aren’t sure if “you can pull it off” I’m here to assure you that you can!
Styling tip: Pair this rug with round and curved decor and furniture to contrast with the angular checkers.
3. Checkerboard Hilo Tufted Rug
A subtle, textural pattern always has a way into my heart. This tufted rug has the most subtle and neutral checkerboard pattern. It plays to the trend without getting lost in it, which gives it a unique look and an elegant feel.
Styling tip: This is a perfect rug to experiment with pattern on pattern. Since its pattern is so subtle, it will pair beautifully with a patterned accent chair, wallpaper, or curtains.
4. Tania Checkerboard Rug
This is the most mature take on a colorful checkerboard rug – it is stunning and is a fun pattern while also feeling very adult with some of the muted tones.
If your space needs color, this is for you. It’s a perfect jumping off point for a room because you can pick out other colors for things based on colors in the rug (one of my favorite ways to decorate).
Styling tip: Don’t be afraid to add even more color in to the room with this rug, but be generous with the neutrals and soft and cozy textures like wool and mohair as well.
5. addybambi For Deny Soda Checkerboard Rug
This is that groovy, trippy, 70’s checkerboard design. It comes in pastel green and pink, and it is perfect if you’re smitten with this pattern or just want to pack a playful punch into your space.
Styling tip: This makes a room fun! Style it with other playful decor that brings out your inner child.
6. Hand-Knotted Carla Rug
This rug has summer picnic vibes in the absolute best way. The pink and yellow are cheery and lovey, and it has a gingham effect (sort of similar to the checkerboard, but a little more unique!).
Any rug that’s hand knotted is guaranteed to be super cozy. This one looks so plush and comfy. If you’ve been loving pastels recently and always have summer on your mind, this is the perfect rug for you.
Styling tip: Don’t feel the need to be matchy matchy with this rug. Treat it as a neutral and build a room around it that feels right to you. Not everything has to be pink and girly, you can bring in contrast to make this rug really stand out.
7. Quinton Tufted Rug
Like wall art for your floor, any tufted rug will bring your artsy, hipster, might-move-to-Brooklyn vibe up a notch. And if you already live in Brooklyn, even better 😉!
I will say, you can definitely find handmade rugs like this on Etsy. Supporting an artist on Etsy is always a more generous way to spend your money than shopping from major stores, so be sure to consider that if you love this look!
Styling tip: You need interesting wall art to complement this rug. Check out textile art and tufted punch needle fiber artwork if you love this rug, because it will speak to you.
8. Handwoven Mayer Shag Rug
Say HELLO color blocking!!! This is my favorite rug on this list because the colors are my favorites and I am obsessed with color blocking. It’s so simple but so bold. You can tell it’s really cozy, too.
All you need to make this rug look amazing is a love for color. Designing with color can be intimidating at first, but the more inspiration you get the easier it becomes. Pinterest is going to be your best friend.
Styling tip: Bring in patterns and unique textures to pair with these bold colors. They will be the perfect complement. also, brown leather would look great with this.
9. Moroccan Tile Rug
OK OK OK 😍 the large sizes of this rug are amazing. I have the 2×3 right here in my office and I loveee it. The quality is amazing – it is so plush under your feet. When I first brought it into my office I was amazed how much it uplifted my entire space. It’s just a good rug, guys. A good, good rug.
Styling tip: This rug goes with everything. It will hold up with so many different design styles, so be yourself and embrace experimentation!
10. Ronnie Sunset Rug by Justina Blakeney® X Loloi
If you’re someone who loves a room that feels light and bright, this is the perfect rug for you. Admittedly, anything Justina Blakeney designs immediately has my heart. But this rug is easy to love on its own. It has the coziness factor AND the looks.
Styling tip: Layer in the warm color tones with this rug. The subtle color in the pattern will be brought out and you’ll feel extra cozy.
11. Optimism Navy Rug by Justina Blakeney® X Loloi
If you love a moody vibe, this rug is the perfect color palette to spark inspiration for an entire room. Plus, the earth tones in it are trendy AND timeless (which is so hard to find!).
Again, this feels like art for your floors. I know that Jungalow is very much inspired by Justina Blakeney’s artwork – sketches, drawings, and paintings – and this is one of them come to life in a rug. It feels so unique, personal, and special.
Styling tip: If you choose this rug, you’re not afraid to be bold! I love that about you. Don’t hold back on creating the room of your dreams with this absolutely dreamy rug.
12. Stockholm Rug from Ikea
This list of trendy rugs wouldn’t be complete without this graphic stripey rug from Ikea. It’s a great price for such a large rug, and it even comes in gray and white if you want something a little bit softer on the eyes. I love the contrast of the black & white, too.
Styling tip: Bring in color and warmth to add contrast and make this rug feel like home. The graphic stripe pattern and the black and white design need softness to contrast it.
These trendy rugs are beautiful and unique. As much as it can be intimidating to spend money on something that’s trendy (for fear it will go out of style) if you love one of these rugs I really encourage you to go for it! These were picked to stand the test of time. Plus, your personal style and enjoyment is way more important than any trend.
