I don’t like featuring too many sale items all within a few days, but there are some finds that just have to be shared. So, bear with me… This Code Rug is only $50-$100 off its regular price, but, considering it’s 100% tufted wool and you can get an 8×10 for $499.00, it’s a steal. My living room rug (Mikado) is in need of a changeout badly (note: a cream/off-white rug is not smart when one has pets), and the price on this rug beats the pants off the other $1300 rugs I was considering.

Well, if tents and track tarps are going to be recycled, why not into a rug? I like how each one will be slightly different, and the colors vary from natural to worn greens. This could work anywhere from an office to kid’s room (in my opinion).
Purchase Information:Price: $125.00

How much do you want to spend on an outdoor area rug? Let me guess: not a whole lot, as it’s going to be outside. This recycled polypropelene rug ticks the right boxes as it’s $80, 5’x8′, and has a very colorful pattern to jazz up your patio or porch area. It can go inside as well, maybe for a kitchen or dining area.
Purchase Information:Price: $79.95

A bright patterned rug is one way to spice up a boring room, and this red diamond rug hits the right spots with a low price point. Approximately 4′ x 6′, Cotton. Also, if you like yellow (and zigzags), check out the Golden Peaks Rug ($598).

Gandia Blasco has quite a few nice options for the floor these days. This Arabesco Wool Kilim Rug Red has a large central pattern that is offset by the small zigzagged edging, giving your room a focal point without introducing too many busy details. Also available in blue.

Simple hand-drawn motifs on a grey jute background gives this floor runner a distinct artisanal feel. Available in a 60×180 runner or a 60×90 petite rug ($40), either (or both) will give a nice pattern to the floor under your feet.
Also available through WorldWeave ($88.00).

You might remember the Flocks Aran Rug by Christien Meindertsma, which features a thick knitted sweater pattern. This flax rug is part of Meindertsma’s Flax Project for Thomas Eyck, in which she aims to make a series of products from flax that are produced locally in the Netherlands. (visit christienmeindertsma.com to learn more). I like how it feels minimal and modern while its material (and production technique perhaps?) is traditional.

Is anyone else suffering from these gray days of January-almost-February? I keep being drawn towards bright pops of colors, specifically yellows and reds (you might have noticed) just to shake off some of the dreary dampness. Naturally, this red rug with its Ottoman-inspired pattern caught my eye, and you’ll be glad to know it’s made from 30% recycled PVC, so it’s bright and durable. Just the thing to get us through to spring.

If you’re looking for a bit of peacock pizzazz without dropping a few grand (I’m thinking of the Peacock Rug by Matthew Williamson), this rug by CB2 could fit the bill. Sure, you sacrifice the ultra-luxe look, but man, you sure would save a bundle.

I fully admit I’m a sucker for graphic rugs, and this red and white dhurrie by John Robshaw looks like it’d be a perfect fit for a hallway. Plus, it’s machine washable, so as soon as it looks a bit dingy, just throw it in the wash (cold water, I’m guessing).
2.5′ x 8′ runner, $275.00
6′ x 9′ area rug, $795.00

Hey, you lucky few that aren’t gasping and reeling at this very moment from the close-to-five-figure price tag, let’s talk about how fun these rugs are. Aren’t they fun? Aren’t they colorful and wonderful and just simply delightful? Don’t you just love, love, love when artists get into the home furnishings market with products that would simply sing in your own home? No matter the about the price. Because you can just simply plonk down the cash and wait for the delivery and ta-da! then you have a lovely, wonderful piece that you can say, ‘oh, that thing? oh, yes, I just picked that up from [insert high-end retailer or gallery] and it’s by [insert artist’s name], you know, we just luuuve his/her pieces…’ and then carry on like it’s no big deal. Isn’t it just nice when you can do that sort of thing.
Now that I’ve got that grumbling out of my system, I actually do think these rugs by Richard Woods are wonderful. And delightful. I really, truly do. It’s just a shame that I can’t quite afford the prices right now. Lucky for you if you can.

Lovely, isn’t it? This hand-tufted rug is from the Portuguese Piodão Group, who normally manufactures products for Moroso and Moooi, to name a few. They launched a new brand called ‘Tufted’ earlier this year at Milan, with this Pixel Rug as its stand out piece.

We posted this way back in 2005, and if you’ve searched our archives, you know that updates are often needed. This rug by Nauris Kalinauskas is perfect for anyone that likes mixing things up occasionally, as you can interchange the pieces to fit the size and color combination you want. Each set has 10 pieces of the same color, so you can combine multiple sets to find your own unique color pattern.
Purchase Information:Price: $99.00

Using only surplus yarns, each of these rugs by Alicia D. Keshshian is tied in a traditional Tibetan knot and GoodWeave certified. There’s a few different color ways available in each of the different styles, but keep in mind that most sizes are around 24″x36″. All rugs are zero waste.
