Our Rug Styles & Types

Are you planning to redecorate your space and enhance its overall appearance? An area rug will be an excellent complement to your furniture, walls, and other accessories. Pay a visit to our Cyrus Rugs showroom in Minnesota to see all the pieces we have to offer. They come in a variety of rug types and styles.

If you have large spaces you need to cover, an oversized area rug may be the one for you. It is relatively larger than standard-sized pieces, so you get maximum coverage with a single rug. Meanwhile, for narrow spaces such as in long hallways and between kitchen islands, a runner rug is the ideal item you can place. It adds character to dull areas while also providing comfort to your feet.

In addition to runner and oversized rugs, we also offer antique rugs. These are unique masterpieces that showcase Oriental and Persian traditions and symbolism. These rugs are at least 80 years old, proving that these artisan pieces are made to last.

For pieces with a “weathered” look that highlights its fades and imperfections, vintage distressed area rugs are ideal options. Such rugs have an eccentric vibe that can bring a new dimension to any area in your home. But if you're looking for something bold and vibrant, Moroccan-style rugs would suit your taste as they feature a mix of vivid colors and patterns that can instantly elevate your interiors.

Our rugs also come in different styles, including traditional, contemporary, tribal, and transitional. Whether you're looking to achieve a modern, Bohemian, Scandinavian, or shabby chic interior, we've got the perfect piece to complement your design.

Traditional rugs typically feature medallions and borders, which can help frame furniture in your living or dining room. The traditional style can be versatile as it can be placed in modern, traditional, and contemporary spaces without looking out of place.

Contemporary rugs are more distinct than other styles as they have a more modern and free-form approach while featuring bold and striking designs. It's common to see unique, playful color palettes, geometric patterns, and even retro features.

Transitional rugs fuse the best of both traditional and contemporary elements to create a unique, timeless look. Some transitional rugs follow an asymmetrical pattern while others are more impressionistic. Nevertheless, they make excellent subtle additions to a room.

To add cultural expressions to your interior, consider a tribal area rug. Some tribal rugs feature zoomorphic patterns inspired by plants and flowers, but many tribal rugs are abstract in design. Additionally, they may have repetitive motifs in various color palettes, making them attractive and fun to decorate with.

Jenny Jones is like a painter when it comes to creating her rugs. The rug serves as her canvas, and the threads are the paint.

Manufacturing & Weaving Methods

Most of our prized pieces are handcrafted by skilled artisans. They are done using traditional and modern weaving methods. Hand-knotting is the most common method in crafting rugs. It can take months and up to a year to finish a single piece. Its extensive process results in intricate attention to detail, as well as durability that is made to last.

Our Minnesota rug store also carries flat-woven rugs. They are not like any standard rug as they are not made with tight knots. However, you can still expect them to be as sturdy as any other rug. The beauty of a flat-woven rug is that it is lightweight and movable, making it an ideal choice if you are frequently redecorating or rearranging your space.

Hand-loomed rugs are also an excellent addition to your home. These rugs are made using a special loom that has a mounted wrap. The strands of the rug are pressed together through thin threading. The thickness of the machine's rod determines how thick or thin the rug's pile will be. To prevent any disentangling, synthetic latex and a cloth sheet are applied to its backside.

Our Minnesota rug inventory also carries machine-made rugs, which are either power or machine-loomed. Machine-made rugs take only a few days to finish, making them more affordable. Moreover, their designs are pre-determined by a computer. They are a great choice for those looking to freshen up their spaces without breaking the bank.

Designer Area Rug Colors & Decorating Tips

Our rug store in Minnesota offers rugs from various designers and brands. It also offers pieces made from varying weaving methods and of different styles and types. Our inventory also includes rugs of different colors, both in a single or multiple color scheme.

Color plays a huge role in determining the mood of a rug. For instance, blue is a color of peace and solitude, while red is a bold and dramatic color. Yellow is an energetic tone that is often associated with the sun. Green, on the other hand, signifies growth and prosperity. Gold in rugs signifies luxury and opulence. We also have black and white rugs that are perfect for modern, monochromatic interiors.

Our catalog also has neutral-colored rugs, as well as multicolored ones. Neutral-colored rugs can easily highlight decorative pieces in a room, while a multi-color area rug can be the focal point you need.

When decorating with an area rug for your home, office, or commercial space, follow these tips to maximize its full potential:

  • Layering your rug adds depth and texture to your room. Place a vibrant rug on top of a neutral-colored carpet to achieve a border effect.
  • Rug size is just as important as its design. The perfect size doesn't touch the walls and provides ample space to let the floor peek.
  • You can use an oversized area rug to cover large spaces instantly. You may also use multiple area rugs to create “sections” in your room.
  • Remember that light-colored rugs can make small rooms look bigger. Dark-colored pieces, on the other hand, make your spaces cozier.
  • Rugs don't always have to be placed on the floor. You may also hang them to add a distinct texture to your wall.
  • When choosing decorative pieces, base their color from accent tones found in the rug to achieve a cohesive look.
  • Rectangular rugs should follow the longer wall's direction to achieve a more consistent look.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are Persian rugs made?

Persian rugs are woven with warp and wefts in silk, cotton, or wool. Then, the artisans tie rows of knots over the wefts. Rug weavers initially made area rugs from high-quality silk and dyes. Nowadays, some brands also use cotton, wool, and other more affordable materials for creating their area rugs.

What sizes do area rugs come in?

You can get area rugs in various sizes from our store. Our standard rug sizes range from 2x3 to 10x14, with each size fitting particular spaces or areas. Also, we offer runners and oversized rug sizes. Our runners are available from 2.6x8 and 4x10 carpets. Meanwhile, our oversized rugs have 12x15 and 13x18 sizes for you to choose from.

How do I choose an area rug?

First, think about the style, color, and pattern you want. Make sure these elements go well with the overall mood of your space. This also means matching it with the furnishings of the room and the effect that you want to achieve.

Size is also important in choosing an area rug. Always measure the rug that you want and visualize how it will fit with the rest of your furniture before buying it for your space.

How do I get wrinkles out of my area rug?

Steaming your rug can help remove unsightly wrinkles. Place a wet towel over the wrinkled part, then set your iron on steam mode. Press the iron onto the towel quickly so the towel or rug doesn't burn. You can also remove wrinkles with a blow dryer, an ice cube, some carpet tape, and other similar methods.

Are rug pads necessary?

Generally, your area rug needs a rug pad to prevent slipping and prolong its life. But rug pads offer other benefits as well. They can help protect your flooring from scratches or marks from heavy furniture, provide extra cushion and softness, and create a quieter room. Also, rug pads can keep spaces warm.
