Club Red Rug

This 4′x6′ rug might be just the ticket for a small space needing a little bit of oomph. I like that it’s based on an actual poster and that it’s under $250.

Black White Rug

I knew I had seen this rug somewhere before, or that at least it was very similar to Suki Cheema’s Black Marble Pillow (for which I’m still searching for an online retailer), and lo and behold, it actually is a Suki Cheema rug. I don’t quite get why some retailers choose not to list the name of the designer/manufacturer of the products they sell… it’s certainly their prerogative but it’s unfortunate for those of us interested in an item’s story.

Cahier Rug

Originally spotted in The World of Interiors, this Cahier Rug would definitely give a room a graph paper-ish feel, which I’m guessing most of us would appreciate.

Designed by Alberto Artesani

(Note: If you had this rug, you might have to sip your tea/coffee from a Graph Paper Mug while boxing up a package with some Check Notebook Tape. Oh, and you’d also have to get an Agnes Martin Print.)

Hexagonal Modular Felt Rug

Hexagonal. Modular. Felt. Rug. I’m sort of speechless. There’s not a lot of background info on this whole series (there’s vases and bowls too that I’ll post separately), but apparently Portland designer Aurelie Tu works with women at the YWCA in order to create these handmade pieces. If the rug is a bit high for your price range, there’s equally impressive table runners: Interlocked Rounded Runner and Felt Offset Runner.

colors: snow white, cloud light grey, charcoal, orange mango, sunflower yellow and apple green.
Size: 4.5′ x 7′

Bursa Rumi Rug

This lovely wool and silk rug has a warm gold and red color scheme with just enough pattern to make a room interesting. The simple design on a otherwise flat background has an updated feel to it, and the red/gold almost reads as a neutral because the contrast is somewhat subtle. It’s the sort of piece that would work well with modern or traditional furnishings, which is always a good sign when you’re considering spending a good amount of money.
