Our Rug Types and Styles

Our rugs at Cyrus are available in four options: tribal, traditional, contemporary, and transitional rugs.

Of the four, tribal rugs are the oldest as they’re originally made by nomadic and semi-nomadic weavers from various regions like Iran, Turkey, Morocco, and Afghanistan.

The ancient origins of tribal rugs make their designs one of a kind. Interior designers would usually pair this type of rug with modern themes. Tribal rugs often have neutral hues that make them go with almost everything. A black diamond-shaped pattern set on a white backdrop, for instance, is a great example of your typical tribal area rug design.

Meanwhile, traditional rugs originated from the Persian and Oriental regions during the classical-style eras. Most traditional rugs often have vibrant colors and ornate designs with distinct borders at their edges. These elements are why traditional carpets give off a luxurious and opulent feel.

If you have a minimalist style for your home, you can incorporate a traditional rug into the space to break the monotony of your design. The rug can also be your statement piece and accentuate its elegance by pairing it with furniture with soft curves and gentle edges. Candlesticks, luxurious draperies, and still-life paintings are great additions when you want to complement your traditional rug.

Contemporary rugs break away from the established styles and designs of tribal and traditional carpet pieces. Instead, these rugs have more modern and free design elements that make them stand out amidst other more traditional styles.

This is why some interior designers prefer to hang and showcase contemporary rugs like artwork rather than using them as floor decor. If you want to adorn your living room spaces and hallways with these rugs, it’s best to pair them with furniture that has exposed legs. That way, you can still appreciate the intricate design of the rug while anchoring your seats and sofas in place.

Lastly, we have transitional rugs, the most versatile of the four due to their traditional and contemporary design elements. It still has traditional elements like an intricate border and embroidery but has a more modern take with its overall design.

These rugs usually have softer shades that are ideal for making cozy and relaxing spaces. You can pair transitional carpets with clean white furniture and soft dark wood for better contrast.

Rug Brands and Designers

Our rug collection includes pieces made by celebrated designers with multiple awards under their name.

One of these is Kevin Walz. Walz has been in the rug industry for years and won the prestigious Prix de Rome fellowship from the American Academy.

He was included in the 1994 Interior Design Hall of Fame. And just three years after, he was inducted into the Metropolitan Home Design 100 Hall of Fame.

While Walz never studied design, he does have a background in fine arts. His skills from his discipline allowed him to have a more detailed approach when considering the tones, lights, feel, and textures of his rugs.

According to Walz, his inspiration can come from past masters or within him whenever he dives deep inside his mind to develop creative modern themes. He also maintains a keen sense of sensitivity with the culture he’s going for, which is why his rugs are such a hit.

Erbil Tezcan is another example of a rug designer who has accumulated multiple awards over the years. Similar to Walz, Tezcan doesn’t have a background in design. However, even if he started as part of the shipping department from a rug company, he worked his way up to manager before finally striking up on his own in the rug industry.

Tezcan’s gift is to take an existing design and translate it into his rugs. A fine example is his piece called Summit. It was inspired by a photograph of capsized boats frozen in ice. Tezcan reinterpreted the design to a mountainous landscape rendered in wool and silk. The rug went on to win the distinguished Best Modern Design, Deluxe Rug award in 2017.

Even with a lot of awards under his belt, Tezcan still continues to create pieces for the love of the craft rather than getting all the recognition. His previous work can attest to that, like the rug called Divine and The Beautiful People.

Today, apart from continuing his work in the rug industry, he’s also collaborating with his son, Anka, who also inherited his gift. Anka’s rug called Circle of Life was inspired by nothing more than a concrete floor.

Then we have James Tufenkian, one of the pillars of the rug industry. Tufenkian was the one who introduced Tibetan coarser construction back when the market was dominated by Persian pieces.

The idea immediately spread like wildfire in the interior design community. Tufenkian said that one of his most memorable experiences was the call he got from a Philadelphia rug dealer. He said that once the dealer displayed the Tufenkian rugs on the shop window, it caught the eye of a passing designer in just one hour and immediately purchased the piece.

Tufenkian loves designing his rugs based on cultural inspirations from a certain area. For instance, he created a rug collection based on the colorful and nature-loving aesthetic of the Northwest.

Manufacturing and Weaving Methods

Our rug collection at our Bloomington showroom includes pieces with various weaves. These include:

  • Hand-knotted

  • Flat-woven

  • Hand-loomed

  • Hand-tufted

  • Power-loomed

  • Machine-loomed

Machine and power-loomed rugs are our most budget-friendly pieces. These are made using synthetic fibers and natural materials. Flat-woven rugs are more elegant and are constructed with low-density fibers. These rugs are lightweight, reversible, easy to clean, and pair well with most furniture.

Our most coveted pieces are hand-knotted rugs. These pieces are crafted by hand, which makes every color and detail stand out. Hand-knotted rugs are extremely durable and are made up of millions of knots that elevate their elegance.

Colors and Decorating Tips

Choosing a rug for your home boils down to considering three factors: positioning, color psychology, and orientation of the room. This includes its size and the existing decor.

Positioning refers to the placement of the rug. If you’re planning to put a square area rug in a living room, make sure that it’s touching all points of the furniture. That means its edge should catch the chairs, tables, and sofa to create a cohesive orientation that ties everything together.

For bedroom carpets, you want to place them under the bed while still occupying at least two-thirds of the space underneath. If your room is too small for one, you can settle for round area rugs instead. Avoid placing a huge rug inside a small space since it will make the room look cramped and tight.

A round area rug positioned at the side of the bed, however, can create a visual layer that adds depth. The rug will also act as a bedside island that elevates the coziness and comfort of the room.

Lastly, color psychology will depend on the area you’re decorating. For entertainment areas, you’d want red or yellow to emphasize the energy in the room. Use different hues of red, orange, yellow, and other warm colors to make the room more inviting to guests. For bedrooms, you can choose cooler colors like shades of blue to achieve a calm and relaxing atmosphere.

As an aside, always take into account the existing décor of the room before buying a rug. A minimalistic space can benefit from rugs with captivating colors as they’ll break the monotony of the space. Conversely, a room with a vibrant design should have rugs with neutral colors to dial down the contrast of the design of the room.

How often should I clean my rugs?

The general rule is vacuuming your rugs twice a week. If it’s placed in high traffic areas like the hallway or dining rooms, increase the frequency to thrice a week. You should vacuum your rugs more frequently if you have pets at home since hair and dander can quickly accumulate in the pile of the rug. This can then attract insects and have allergens that can be harmful to you and your family.

Yes. Our experts use effective methods to revitalize your rug and bring back its former elegance.

We’ll first check for any rug damage. If any is found, we’ll provide the necessary repairs. If there’s none, we’ll proceed with the cleaning procedure.
