Shop Luxury Area Rugs

Finding the perfect handmade rug is as crucial to interior design as determining your space’s color palette. Designer rugs can dramatically change your home. For instance, your contemporary industrial living space will feel warmer when you complement it with colorful Persian rugs. Conversely, plain square area rugs will add balance to your art-deco-inspired bedroom.

Bespoke rugs come in various sizes, colors, and patterns, allowing you to pull off almost any look or design you want. You can choose contemporary carpets with striking designs if you love statement pieces. And if you’re a fan of the origins of rug weaving, you’ll enjoy one-of-a-kind antique rugs that display the rich history and culture embedded in their threads.

Aside from carrying designs that span a wide range of cultures and eras, you can also use luxury area rugs in more ways than one. For example, the Russian tradition of hanging colorful textiles like Oriental rugs on walls has slowly become a widely-accepted practice over the years. You can also elevate these walls by hanging different bedroom area rugs in various colors like rich shades of red and blue.

In other cases, the art of layering multiple handmade rugs can create a visually exciting living space. It’s the perfect solution for home owners and collectors to utilize irregularly shaped rugs and seasonal carpets.

For example, if you purchased a small sheepskin carpet, you can place it on top of your oversized designer rugs for visual flair. You can also use the same technique on older and larger mats. If one of your oversized square area rugs at home has already faded over time due to age, you can use it as the base for the rest of your newer rugs and smaller cowhide carpets.

Besides the aesthetically pleasing patterns, luxury area rugs have many functions. They help protect precious hardwood floors and aid in soundproofing sections in your home. Plush carpets, for example, are ideal for making your living room quieter and more serene.

Rug Style & Types

Cyrus Artisan Rugs’ inventory of bespoke rugs includes eight popular styles and types of elegant carpets.

Traditional Carpets

Traditional designer rugs' patterns and color palettes predominantly come from Oriental rugs in Asia or European handmade from the Victorian era. These designs are considered the classic style and the most admired variation of rugs globally.

Over time, the patterns of traditional carpets evolved. While their initial ornate and intricate designs stayed, their color palettes have expanded from rich reds and blues to muted shades like cream and gray.

It’s common to mix traditional handmade rugs with modern design schemes to create a timeless living space. Building your theme off of traditional pieces is best for achieving a classic yet contemporary look to achieve a classic yet modern look. You can use antique rugs as the base of your concept and use wooden accent furniture. From there, add contemporary pieces like modern paintings, sculptures, and pillows with abstract and geometric patterns.

Transitional rugs

You can give new life to traditional rug styles by mixing contemporary influences into transitional handmade rugs. A transitional carpet is perfect if you want a rug that seamlessly blends with your existing interior design. If you feel like your home is missing something, putting a carpet in the middle of everything can tie the entire look together. Thanks to its versatility, transitional rugs work well with any design scheme.

Transitional rugs are also excellent for refreshing your home’s look. If you want to give your living room an update without making drastic changes, you can simply look for a transitional carpet that shares the similar color palette you have at home. When mixing different motifs, it would be best to avoid busy patterns that can overwhelm the eyes.

Instead, look for textured transitional rugs with a modern color palette. Doing so would give you a more modern design scheme.

Tribal carpets

Weavers spent years creating the tribal bedroom area rugs we enjoy today as a tradition. These conversation-starters are famous for their unique patterns inspired by local women and native tribes from different continents across the globe. Every design featured on this rug type represents the culture of their country of origin, making them a must-have for rug collectors.

These bespoke area rugs use naturally sourced materials like sheep’s wool, cotton for textiles, and vegetable dyes for coloring. Because of this, they’re a popular eco-friendly option. Thanks to their colorful palettes, they add color and spark to neutral-themed spaces. If you want to add more life to your monotone bedroom, a tribal rug will work well with your concept.

Contemporary rugs

Unlike traditional and tribal carpets influenced by patterns from previous generations, contemporary rugs focus on highlighting what’s trending at the moment. If art deco-inspired carpets are all the rage, contemporary weavers will create pieces with bold colors. Conversely, if there is demand for more subdued versions of modern mats, brands and designers will develop more products that match the trend.

Contemporary carpets can quickly refresh the overall appearance of your home. For instance, if you think your home looks outdated, you can find a piece that matches your existing concept. This rug type works well with almost any design concept thanks to its modern style and a wide variety of color palettes.

Solid-colored carpets

It's not uncommon to use one piece of furniture or one solid color as the base of an entire room’s design scheme. This technique gives you as much control as you need to highlight statement pieces or tie different design elements into one cohesive look.

For instance, if you have dramatic accent pieces like a gold antique coffee table, an ivory solid-colored area rug will be an excellent backdrop for the table’s ornate details. In other cases, you can use round area rugs in one bold color to add life to a monotone bedroom filled with neutral colors like white and beige.

Stripe rugs

Like solid-colored carpets, striped bedroom area rugs are timeless pieces of home decor that transform spaces depending on their variations and how you use them. For example, vertical stripes create the illusion of high ceilings; conversely, horizontal lines are perfect for expanding the overall size of a room.

When working with stripes, it’s best to avoid mixing different variations of lines into one room as they tend to cancel out the effects of one another. But in cases of creating playful design schemes for your child's rooms, black and white area rugs with mixed-width stripes will work well.

Southwest carpets

Similar to tribal rugs, southwest-style carpets originated from different tribes. Native American weavers from states like New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and Oklahoma created these handmade rugs as cloaks and saddle blankets.

The patterns and color palettes of southwestern rugs come from the respective cultures and traditions of their weaver’s tribes. For instance, square area rugs from older tribes come with contrasting blues and whites for their color palette. Conversely, newer variations of these bespoke area rugs come in earth colors such as green, brown, and red. They serve as excellent pieces of artwork to display on your plain walls that add contrast to an otherwise monotone palette.

One-of-a-kind rugs

Due to their unique features brought by years of wear and tear, antique rugs are typically considered one-of-a-kind hand-woven tapestries. For centuries, generations of families have passed these area rugs to one another, and experts have made it their mission to preserve their beauty.

As their name suggests, one-of-a-kind designer rugs are rare, and it’s almost impossible to find pieces that share several similar characteristics with another piece in the market. Their rich history and eccentric look have stood the test of time, making them extremely popular for collectors.

Luxury rug stores like Cyrus Artisan Rugs have restored these historical rugs, so they continue to age gracefully.

If you want to experiment with playful patterns, it would be best to stick with something that matches your overall color palette. Doing so ensures you prevent overwhelming your guests with busy patterns and bright colors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is shedding normal for designer rugs?

Certain rugs are more prone to shedding than others due to their material, especially during the first few months of use. For example, square area rugs made of wool sheds more than outdoor round area rugs made of synthetic material.

If you notice any shedding patterns on your rug, avoid pulling it, as it could lead to further damage. Instead, cut the fiber straight from its base.

How should I store my rugs?

Rug maintenance heavily depends on the material of the piece. But generally, experts recommend storing rugs in a cool, dry environment to prevent mold and moisture from causing damage to the carpet. It will also help if you wrap your mat in protective plastic before storing them.

Should I roll or fold my rug?

Keeping your rugs folded for a long time can lead to creases that become increasingly challenging to remove as time goes by. Many experts recommend rolling your bespoke area rugs to prevent this from happening. Also, creases can weaken your carpet's foundation threads, leading to more severe problems.

How long can I keep a rug rolled up?

If you decide to roll your rugs and store them for the long term, you must unroll them every one to two months. Doing so allows you to check for signs of growing mold or mildew that could ruin your rugs. Additionally, it helps to keep your storage dust-free so it won’t attract mites and other bugs to your handmade rugs.
