There are plenty of reasons to adorn your home with a rug. The practical benefits range from warmth and comfort to noise reduction and floor protection.
A rug can also transform the aesthetics of your space. For instance, placing a bright square area rug in a dark corner can effortlessly illuminate the space. They’re also easy to move, so you can decorate your space depending on your whims.
When choosing a rug, however, you need to follow a few interior design rules. These include correct placement, rug type, and color psychology to get the most out of the piece.

Cyrus Artisan Rugs carries eight different rug styles. They are tribal, traditional, contemporary, transitional, solid, stripe, Southwest, and one-of-a-kind rugs.
Tribal rugs have been with us for centuries. Nomadic and semi-nomadic people originally made them from regions like Iran, Morocco, and Afghanistan. Interior designers used tribal rugs to complement modern-style rooms. A flashy gaming room, for instance, would benefit from handmade rugs with neutral colors or modern rugs with striking geometric patterns.
Traditional rugs have also been around for thousands of years and decorated the floors of Persian, Oriental, and other classic royal houses.
Traditional rugs have bold hues, intricate patterns, and distinct borders, giving each piece an air of luxurious sophistication. Some intricate pieces include designs and patterns such as crystals, still-life paintings, and luxurious draperies.
Meanwhile, contemporary rugs are the complete opposite of tribal and traditional carpets. In fact, they don't follow the stylistic rug tradition that was popular thousands of years ago. Instead, these rugs offer a more “modern” look.
A good example is a square area rug with retro features. Interior designers would hang these pieces on a wall to showcase their unique designs.
Then we have transitional rugs that have elements from both traditional and contemporary carpets. A common example is a rug with bold, traditional colors without a border for a less formal look. This allows it to fit almost any type of home, thanks to its versatility.
Moreover, transitional rugs often have simple colors like beige or baby pink. They’re best placed in rooms like a nursery or home library. You can also add other elements like white curtains, throw pillows, and window drapes to enhance the effect.
Are you planning to place a rug in a high-traffic area? Then our solid texture rugs are what you need. These pieces are extremely durable because of their materials and weave.
For restricted spaces, we recommend striped rugs. Using striped rugs in confined areas can create an illusion that the room is bigger. For greater effect, you may also decorate with colors like cool gray or soft black.
Our southwestern rug collection is for those who are into historical designs. People love this type of rug because it infuses a unique sense of culture into the space. Place these southwestern rugs in your cabins and patio for greater impact.
Finally, we have one-of-a-kind rugs. These are unique custom-made pieces with different colors and designs. Its composition will depend entirely on how you want it. Once made, it will be the only carpet of its kind in existence.
Our rug collection includes pieces from award-winning designers. Among these creative masters is James Tufenkian. He played a major role in transforming the rug market in the 1980s. Back then, Persian rugs were all the rage.
However, Tufenkian introduced a new type of Tibetan rug with hand-carded and handspun yarns. These rugs had a unique texture that blended well with the dyes.
Ralph Lauren also left a distinct mark on the rug market. As a company that has been in the industry for over 50 years, Lauren is best known for walking the fine line between comfort and elegance.
Lauren’s designs aim to create familiarity and put audiences at ease. Underneath all of that is an aesthetic that links everything together. His rugs achieve that by acting as an anchor and tying every visual element in the room together.
Then there’s Kevin Walz, a unique visionary in the rug industry. He was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 1994. Three years later, he was included in the Metropolitan Home Design 100 Hall of Fame.
Walz has a background in fine arts, and he carefully chooses the right tone, color, texture, and element in his rugs to create a unique masterpiece. It doesn’t matter if it’s a simple square area rug or an elegant luxury area rug. The piece will always have an intriguing look as long as it's made by Walz.

Manufacturing and Weaving Methods
The rugs in our collection have the following weaves:
Our power- and machine-loomed rugs are perfect if you’re on a budget, as they’re made from synthetic fibers and natural materials. On the other hand, our flat-woven rugs are more elegant and made of low-density fibers. They are lighter, reversible, and match well with almost any furniture.
But our most exquisite carpets are hand-knotted rugs created by authentic rug weavers. They are constructed with millions of knots that make the design and material stand out. Hand-knotted rugs are durable, especially when properly taken care of.
Color psychology serves as the foundation of your overall theme in your space.
For entertainment areas like the living room or dining room, red is almost always the go-to shade. It’s associated with passion and energy that can spark conversations.
However, you should also pay attention to the gradation of the colors that you put together. For example, reds like candy red or crimson red are bold and intense. Meanwhile, lighter shades like brick red or mahogany red create an ambient feel with a more relaxing vibe.
If you’re decorating a space that doesn’t have a lot of natural light, go for lemon yellow square area rugs. The color can invoke a sense of positivity reminiscent of sunlight. Place these rugs in windowless hallways to immediately brighten up dark corridors.
For bedrooms, blue is the way to go. Blue is a relaxing color that can slow down your breathing and lower your blood pressure. Choose sky blue or arctic blue for a relaxing atmosphere. You can also go for bolder hues like navy blue or admiral blue to connote feelings of trust and loyalty like in your home office.

As a general rule of thumb, you should vacuum your rugs twice a week. Increase the frequency to three times if the carpet is located in high-traffic areas like the hallway or living room.
For those who have household pets, vacuum your rugs daily. After all, hair and dander can quickly accumulate in the rug’s fibers. This may attract insects or trigger allergic reactions.
