Why Interior Designers Love Styling with Vintage Rugs


We believe no decorating element is more perennial and yet entirely on-trend than the hand-woven vintage rug. Interior designers love styling with vintage rugs because they are versatile, durable, and can serve to either anchor or elevate a room’s décor.


Vintage rugs are incredibly versatile. Due to their history, which spans thousands of years, vintage woven rugs integrate seamlessly with nearly any design style.

In a room that has been styled with vibrant colors or patterns, a rug with a neutral base and small flecks of color works beautifully.

If your current color scheme is monochromatic, or awash in subdued neutral tones, consider a richly hued rug to add dimension and luxury. To intensify this effect, add throw pillows, a lamp, unique décor, or artwork that will enhance your favorite colors within your vintage rug.

Distressed Vintage Rugs Interior Design


Some of our clients have expressed worry that their vintage rug will be stained, worn, or damaged due to their children, pets, dinner guests, or just everyday wear and tear. We assure you there’s no need to be overly precious around your gorgeous new rug, though; vintage rugs last nearly forever.

In fact, vintage rugs will outlast today’s factory-made rugs by another hundred years. Just like so many modern goods, “they just don’t make them like they used to.” Handmade rugs become more valuable over time, even when they are subjected to the full intensity of our daily lives.

Clean your rugs gently, protect them from harsh sunlight, and rotate them twice a year, and they’ll continue to patina beautifully as time adds to their unique appeal.

Anchoring and Elevating Your Space

Nothing makes a house a home like a unique, hand-woven vintage rug. Whether you’re searching for a rug to elevate a space that feels drab or wish to incorporate a rug to cohesively anchor a room in which a color story feels incomplete, we will help you find the one that’s perfect for you.
