Shop Luxury Area Rugs

Besides being able to transform any room, handmade rugs have other benefits that make them a must-have for luxurious homes. For instance, it helps add an extra layer of comfort to your home. Bespoke rugs like great thick piles help introduce softness into your hardwood floors.

Additionally, they help protect your floors from damage caused by heavy foot traffic, sharp items, and dust. Scratches can be challenging to remove on wood flooring; hence, you must look for carpets made from absorbent materials like cotton and sheepskin. These materials also make fabulous, perfect landing cushions on slippery floors.

Noise reduction is another benefit that rugs offer. Luxury area rugs have a sound-dampening effect that reduces noise in your space. Most of the sound you hear in your home comes from the vibrations your feet make when you walk on hardwood floors. The material on thick designer rugs absorbs the sound, creating a quieter atmosphere.

Besides functionality, square area rugs anchor your furniture and define your overall design theme. In some instances, furniture alone isn’t enough to create a luxurious atmosphere for your home. In these cases, layering different textured luxury area rugs creates depth and visual interest.

Bespoke area rugs are also perfect for creating different areas in one space. Suppose you recently purchased a luxurious apartment with an open floor plan. You can divide the large floor plan into specific areas like living and dining spaces with a carpet.

Finally, handmade rugs can help you create one cohesive look. When putting together different design elements in one room, finding something that connects them, like a large square area rug, is essential.

Whether you want to introduce a layer of comfort into your home or create a brand new interior concept, Cyrus Artisan Rugs is here to help you find the perfect piece for your home.

Rug Style & Types

Cyrus Artisan Rugs' extensive collection of designer rugs includes eight popular rug styles and types.

Traditional Style Rugs

Traditional-style carpets are antique rugs that feature classic designs and color palettes. These handmade rugs often come with intricate designs influenced by classical Asian and European prints like medallions, octagons, and hexagons. Traditional rugs are timeless pieces that can add visual flair to modern bedrooms or serve as a formal addition to your living space.

They often feature bold colors such as blue, red, and purple in their color palettes, creating a dramatic atmosphere in any space. Most pieces of this rug style embody French luxury, making them perfect decor pieces for recreating Victorian-inspired homes.

And despite being known for their bold color palettes, modern iterations of these traditional rugs also come in neutral colors that work well with warm-colored wood and bronze decor. We highly recommend pairing your traditional bespoke rug with embellished draperies if you want to create a luxurious living space.

Transitional Rugs

While traditional bespoke area rugs highlight classic patterns, the transitional style mixes traditional and contemporary influences into one piece. Most of these handmade rugs draw inspiration from classic designs and combine them with modern color schemes.

This rug style is famous for its elegant yet casual designs and cutting-edge color palettes. Transitional designer rugs come in various colors and prints. You can purchase transitional pieces with a washed-out look for a vintage effect or black and white area rugs for a modern-contemporary theme.

Its versatility makes the transitional style prevalent in today's interior design industry. You can create different interior design concepts with transitional luxury area rugs. For example, you can evoke a retro look with a mid-century modern concept or add a touch of femininity to your rustic farmhouse theme with floral prints.

You may also create bohemian-style bedrooms with transitional bespoke rugs that feature Aztec designs and geometric shapes.

Tribal Style Rugs

Carpets like Oriental and Persian rugs fall under the category of tribal rug style. These rugs come from different tribes across the globe, with designs and weaving techniques from regions like Asia and the Middle East.

These bespoke area rugs take inspiration from global cultures that helped define the rug-making industry, making them a must-have for rug collectors. Some of the colors featured in their designs include warm earthy tones of reds, browns, and navy blues, while the symbols featured in each piece tell a story unique to its weavers.

Like transitional rugs, tribal carpets like Oriental rugs work well with different interior design concepts. You can incorporate classic diamond-shaped patterns with modern design concepts or use luxurious Persian rugs to create contrast in otherwise minimalist spaces.

You may also recreate traditional English country interiors by looking for tribal handmade rugs with intricate designs similar to traditional designer rugs.

Contemporary Rugs

If you think your home's interior needs a refresh, then contemporary rugs are for you. These modern-style carpets are elaborate tapestries that feature what's fashionable in the interior design industry. Most of these bold and cutting-edge pieces feature trendy design concepts.

Unlike transitional bespoke rugs, contemporary carpets highlight different textures, modern prints, and color palettes. Depending on what you like, there are a variety of patterns to choose from, whether you want busy designs or minimalist lines.

You can also choose from many shades, from neutral color schemes that unify disparate design elements to vivid palettes that create interesting focal points in your space.

What's great about contemporary designer rugs is that they can quickly transform an outdated interior concept into a more trendy theme. For instance, if your home has a mid-century modern design and you want to give it an update, you can look for a neutral-colored contemporary square area rug with abstract prints.

Additionally, you can use contemporary rugs to mix different influences to create a hybrid of other motifs.

Solid Style Rugs

Solid rugs are carpets that feature one color or shade alongside different patterns or textures. Solid-style mats are versatile, and you can use them in different ways. For example, it can serve as the focal point of your living space by tying things together with a neutral color palette.

Solid bedroom area rugs are easy to work with since they’re perfect for creating a base to ground all of your design ideas. And because most handmade solid-colored rugs don't use loud prints, they work well with eclectic furniture or wallpapers. You can balance things by picking a solid-colored carpet in colors like cream or white.

Suppose you're a fan of the minimalist design concept but still want to add visual interest to your interiors. In that case, we highly suggest looking for textured square area rugs in color palettes that complement your existing theme. The handmade carpet will add more depth to your visuals without breaking the clean look you've already established.

Stripe Rugs

A striped pattern is a timeless print that won’t go out of style. Its versatile design allows you to transform your home's look through visual illusions. For instance, you can highlight the length of your hallway with horizontal stripes and make a room look wider with vertical lines.

Aside from the orientation of the stripes, their size also affects how drastic the change will be. For example, wide and chunky lines help broaden floor space, while thin lines help create a seamless look. The orientation and size of your stripes depend on what look you want to achieve with your bedroom area rugs.

Additionally, you can create design concepts like mid-century modern, beach, or nautical themes with stripes. If your home's existing interiors are more contemporary, you can transform the formal atmosphere into a casual one by looking for playful striped black and white area rugs.

Southwest Style Rugs

Like tribal handmade rugs, southwest bespoke rugs come from tribes in states like Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and more. Tribal weavers used naturally-sourced materials like cotton, wool, and vegetable dyes to create these bespoke area rugs. The patterns and prints on these carpets represent the culture of their respective weavers.

With rich colors like turquoise, terracotta, and warm browns, tribal bespoke rugs are perfect for creating bohemian design concepts when you hang them on your walls. Additionally, you can use them as the focal point of your bohemian space.

We highly recommend using these rugs to add a touch of the great outdoors to your interiors.

One-of-a-kind Rugs

As the name suggests, the one-of-a-kind rug style includes antique rugs preserved to retain their original patterns and designs. And what makes each carpet unique from every other piece on the market is its distressed look. Each handmade rug under this category comes from different eras and has existed for more than a hundred years.

Their history and uniqueness make these antique rugs popular among luxury area rug collectors. It's almost impossible to find two one-of-a-kind handmade rugs that look identical. That's why we highly recommend purchasing your favorite piece as soon as you see them.

These rugs are perfect for creating luxurious and formal spaces in your home. We recommend looking for a piece that matches your dining set to make an elegant dining room. Suppose you have a golden dining table with intricate embellishments. It would be best to look for a one-of-a-kind square area rug with a neutral color palette.

  • Hand knotting

  • Flat weaving

  • Hand looming

  • Hand tufting

Rug Colors & Decorating Tips

Our selection of luxury area rugs come in different shapes, sizes, and color palettes, from round area rugs to bold-colored bedroom area rugs, including:

  • Blue

  • Green

If you haven’t decided which color scheme you want to adopt for your new design concept, consider sourcing inspiration from bespoke area rugs. You can use the color palette of your chosen designer rug and look for accent shades that will complement its color scheme. Conversely, you can look for rugs that either contrast or complement the colors of your furniture.

And when decorating your dining room, it would be best to look for designer rugs that match the shape of your dining table. While it's true that you can experiment with shapes when picking furniture and home decor, your dining room's furnishings need to fit in one frame. You can use round area rugs on small breakfast tables.

To add more color to your white walls, we recommend hanging colorful square area rugs like a Persian or Oriental rug.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it normal for new designer rugs to shed?

Yes, it's common for newly manufactured bespoke area rugs to have loose fibers or balls of fluff. You can remove these fibers, but ensure that you cut them from the thread's root. Additionally, you can vacuum your designer rug according to the recommended setting. Removing loose fibers does not affect your carpet's appearance.

How can I prevent permanent indentations on my bespoke rugs?

The weight of your furniture and heavy foot traffic can cause indentations to your designer rugs. We highly recommend using rug pads to prevent them from leaving permanent marks on your carpet. Rug pads are cushions that separate your handmade rug from your floor. Aside from helping you avoid indentations, it also helps keep your carpet in place.

Are luxury area rugs suitable for pets?

Certain carpets are suitable for pets that are durable enough to withstand heavy damage and stains. If you have pets and want to purchase handmade rugs, we highly recommend looking for easy-to-clean pieces like flatweave bespoke area rugs. You must also look into the materials typically used to create carpets, like nylon and other synthetic threads.

How long do handmade rugs last?

The lifespan of your rugs depends on a set of factors such as the material, the weaving technique, the amount of foot traffic it experiences, and how you maintain it. To ensure that your designer rugs last long, you must follow the recommended cleaning instructions for your carpet.
