Our Rug Styles & Types

What kind of interior do you plan to achieve? Whether you have a modern, classic, Mediterranean-style, or rustic theme in mind, our Minnesota rug inventory will have something for your specific needs and preferences. Our rug styles include tribal, traditional, contemporary, and transitional pieces suitable for any room. 

Tribal rugs are created without a design or pattern in mind, making them truly unique and one-of-a-kind pieces. You'll notice that the patterns aren't symmetrical but these imperfections add to their distinct beauty. The most common symbols on tribal rugs include eight-pointed stars, diamonds, crosses, and animals like camels, fishes, and spiders. It also features boteh or paisleys, a tear-shaped design that symbolizes the universe and everlasting life.

If you prefer a rug with a more classic appeal, you can take a look at our traditional area rugs. This type of rug features animal imagery and natural elements like stars, fruits, and flowers. You'll also see multiple rows of the same medallion motif. Some traditional rugs follow a panel design that creates distinct divisions on the rugs. For example, the designs and patterns are placed in the center and highlighted by thick borders. 

The perfect complement to any modern space is a contemporary rug. You can see how these rugs use bold colors, sharp contrasts, out-of-the-ordinary patterns and free-form styles. Contemporary rugs often reflect currently popular designs, so placing one in your interior can give you space a trendy appeal.

Transitional rugs merge design elements from a traditional and contemporary carpet. They feature a traditional rug's classic look and timeless appeal as well as a contemporary rug's vivid colors and patterns. For example, a transitional area rug can have floral designs with subtle tones, but have a more “trendy” look thanks to its lack of traditional borders.

Apart from these styles, our rug store in Minnesota also offers different rug types. For instance, our antique rugs can last in the years to come and can be a great family heirloom that your children can inherit.

If you're looking for pieces that stray from the classic appeal of most carpets, consider installing a vintage distressed rug. Its “washed out” look makes it an extremely versatile decor piece you can place in your home. It can either be an old rug that is salvaged and given a new lease of life or a completely new piece that has been deliberately overdyed or bleached. This type of rug proves that even an “aged look” can still look pleasing to the eyes.

Moroccan-style rugs are exceptional pieces you can also consider. These rugs are flexible decors because their color scheme can range from vibrant to neutral and can depict patterns or free-form designs. Moreover, installing these rugs will help incorporate the rich heritage of their origin into your space.

Some areas at home or your office are more extensive than most rooms. Oversized area rugs, for example, can cover broader areas and provide instant comfort that would usually require multiple rugs. They are also not as prominent as carpets, so you can still make your floor peek out from the edges of your rug. 

Runner rugs are ideal for long hallways, foyers, and beside your bed. They are longer but slimmer than standard-size rugs, making their distinct shape ideal for hard-to-cover spaces.

Whatever rug style or type you may be looking for, our rug store in Minnesota has got you (and your floors) covered. Visit us and find the perfect rug for you.

Manufacturing & Weaving Methods

Rugs are made in various ways, either by hand or with the help of a machine. These techniques have been passed down from generations that have been adopted into various weaving methods. Over the years, rug making has transformed from a simple craft into a fine art form.

Our Greenwood, MN rug store consists of rugs made in different methods, including:

  • Hand-knotting
  • Flat-weaving
  • Hand-looming
  • Hand-tufting
  • Power-looming
  • Machine-looming


Hand-knotting is the most common rug weaving technique. Its production can take anywhere from a few months to a year to finish and may require several weavers working on a single piece simultaneously. Despite its extensive process, hand-knotted rugs are incredibly durable and can last for several years as long as they receive proper care. 

The art of interlacing the vertical and horizontal fibers create flat-woven rugs. These rugs stand out from other carpets because of the absence of a pile; instead, the threads make up their body. Since these types of rugs are flat, they are lightweight and foldable. Additionally, flat-woven rugs are characterized by tapestry-like lacework called the Soumak weave. Its braid effect adds texture and dimension to each rug.

The traditional process of hand-looming rugs includes the use of a vertical loom with a mounted wrap. The thickness of the machine's rod determines how thick or thin the rug will be. This technique produces pieces that translate into beautiful loop or cut piles. Moreover, this rug weaving style creates pieces that often have no fringes or properly secured ends.

Hand-tufted rugs use a “tufting gun,” a device that punches threads through a fabric sheet to create their pile. When this process is completed, a backing is created to hold the yarns into place and prevent them from disentangling. The backing is called a scrim, and it differentiates a hand-tufted rug from other types of carpets.

Machine-loomed rugs are also called power-loomed rugs because they are woven on a power loom. This device is operated either by hand, machine, or computer. But before weaving, the size and color of these rugs have already been pre-determined for more precise designs. Machine-loomed rugs can be produced quicker than handmade pieces and are more affordable.

Designer Area Rug Colors & Decorating Tips

Apart from different carpet brands, designer pieces, and weaving techniques, Cyrus Artisan Rugs also carries rugs in various colors. They can be in single or multiple tones, with each bringing a unique atmosphere into your interior. For instance, red rugs have an invigorating feel, while blue rugs are more soothing. The tones of a yellow rug, on the other hand, illuminate a dark room. Meanwhile, brown rugs make spaces cozier and are excellent for living or dining rooms. 

Our multi-color area rugs make excellent focal points because they can add a splash of fun and color into any space. Aside from this, we also have neutral-colored rugs that can balance your decor's vibrant colors. Try layering these two pieces to achieve a room with more depth.

Enhance your room's interior with these room designing tips:

  • Decorate outdoor spaces like patios and verandas with rugs, as well. 
  • Rugs of different sizes add a sense of variety to your space. Try this if you need to add definition to small spaces.
  • A rug with a subtle design can tone down rooms with intricate upholstery or wallpapers. Similarly, rugs with bolder colors can add more visual interest to spaces with a subdued look.
  • Rugs can be visual pathways in dull-looking spaces. For example, they could create an  organized flow that your guests can follow when they visit your home.
