Rugs can transform a bland room into something more mysterious or luxurious. The versatility of these rugs make them such a crucial design piece for interior design.

In fact, rugs have been present for thousands of years. Back then, rugs were used for warmth and comfort. But as time went on, members of the royalty have been adorning their spaces with rugs to show off their extravagance. So if you’re thinking of sprucing up your floors, you might want to consider adding a brilliantly styled, hand-tufted rug to your space. 

The right rug will depend on your budget, however. For instance, machine-loomed black and white area rugs are a more affordable option than handcrafted pieces. While machine-loomed rugs don’t offer the same elegance of hand-knotted rugs, they’re still beautiful decorative pieces.

If you have a bigger budget, you may want to opt for flat-woven rugs. Another option would be to go for a hand-knotted piece that’s both extravagant and comfortable.

Our Rug Types and Styles

Cyrus Rugs caters to the needs of rug collectors and enthusiasts in Austin, TX. If you’re looking for the right rug, our pieces are divided into four categories: tribal, traditional, contemporary, and transitional rugs.

Tribal rugs originate from Nomadic and semi-Nomadic cultures in areas like Turkey, Morocco, and Afghanistan. They usually feature pastel colors like gray and cream. But despite their light shades, these tribal rugs have a subtle charm to elevate a room’s depth and warmth. 

Try adding a tribal piece to a monochromatic room and you’ll instantly see your space come to life. Just make sure that the other design elements in your room complement each other.

Meanwhile, traditional rugs stand out more than their tribal counterparts. And it makes sense that these pieces tend to be more “loud” since they originate from Persian and Oriental royalty. So if your home has a formal and luxurious look, consider adding a traditional rug to your space. It’ll stand out even more if your space has a chandelier or still-life painting on display. These rugs are also an excellent complement to bronze decor and furniture. You might want to opt for a round area rug to make your traditional piece stand out.

Meanwhile, contemporary rugs are recognized for their more modern designs. Unlike tribal and traditional rugs, contemporary rugs are mostly considered stand-alone pieces because they tend to depict single subjects like a flower. Or sometimes, they may contain overlapping, cube-like patterns.

Contemporary rugs are like unique artworks you’d be proud to display in your interior. They are perfect pieces for modern spaces. So breathe new life into your home with a contemporary rug.

The last type of rug in our collection is transitional rugs. They are considered the most “hybrid” option among all four because they possess qualities present in traditional and contemporary pieces. For example, transitional rugs can feature the vibrant color of a traditional rug while also depicting modern patterns.

This means they are versatile enough for any type of room. So if you can’t decide what sort of style to go for, transitional rugs are a safe choice. Keep in mind, however, that their design can make your space look somewhat casual. What’s more, they usually have a crisp design that’ll stand out more in minimalist spaces. For instance, a transitional square area rug can add depth to a futuristic-looking game room. 

Whatever your interior preference is, our Austin, TX rug collection has you covered. We have an extensive inventory that caters to your every need.

Rug Brands and Designers

Our Austin, TX rug inventory includes pieces from well-known names in the industry. These designers have earned multiple awards thanks to their creativity and ingenuity.

Thomas O’Brien, for instance, creates his pieces using a technique he describes as “warm modernism.” He prioritizes shapes and lines to call attention to the texture and material of his rugs. As a result, his pieces tend to have a “traditional” look that’s ideal for modern spaces. His pieces are versatile so you can add them to any space. 

Erbil Tezcan’s approach to creating rugs is different. His gift lies in his ability to interpret certain artworks. For instance, his piece called Divine is inspired by a photograph of a stream, lake, and some vegetation. He incorporated these elements into a rug that features red and golden patterns that invoke the atmosphere of autumn.

Tezcan has also won the prestigious Best Modern Design, Deluxe Rug award in 2017 with his Summit masterpiece. The piece was inspired by a photograph of capsized boats trapped in ice. Tezcan turned that image upside down and transformed it into a mountainous landscape. His talent to reimagine reality is what makes him more of a “translator” rather than a designer. 

Next we have rugs from Barbary Barry who takes inspiration from nature. From fields of flowers to the majestic beauty of the universe, Barry is only limited by what’s around her. Her trademark style is that she sticks to monochromatic shades. She shares that she takes advantage of the power of “gradation” because it produces a calming effect, similar to the feeling of being at the beach. 

Ralph Lauren is also a big name in the interior design industry. His pieces reflect simplicity and modesty. After all, Lauren wants his audience to feel comfortable — like the feeling when you enter a space and feel right at home. The inspiration for these rugs comes from classical designs. However, Lauren adds a layer of freshness to avoid making the rugs look “boring and uninteresting.”

Another big name in our Austin, TX rug collection is James Tufenkian. Similar to Lauren, Tufenkian doesn’t conform to established designs. Instead, he makes unique pieces from a fresh angle. Tufenkian was one of the pioneers of Tibetan rug construction back when the US market was saturated with Persian pieces. He wanted his rug designs to be influenced by different cultures and designs instead of focusing on a single source. So he took inspiration from Tibetan garments and Chinese latticeworks.

Other pieces included from our Austin, TX rug inventory comes from:

  • Jenny Jones

  • Clodagh

  • Kavi

  • Kevin Walz

  • Mark Pollack


Aside from these designers, we also carry pieces from well-known brands like Lapchi, Nourison, and our very own Cyrus Artisan rugs. Lapchi provides rugs that are mostly focused on Nepal and Pakistan origins. Meanwhile, Nourison’s rugs are classic interpretations making them perfect additions to modernist spaces. 

Whether you’re looking for black and white area rugs or bedroom area rugs, our Austin, TX rug collection has you covered. Here are other brands in our inventory:

  • Jaipur Living

  • Safavieh

  • Tamarian

  • Tufenkian

Manufacturing and Weaving Methods

Austin, TX rug collectors can choose from a variety of pieces from our inventory. These pieces are made using different techniques like:

  • Hand-knotted

  • Flat-woven

  • Hand-loomed

  • Hand-tufted

  • Power-loomed

  • Machine-loomed


Hand-knotted rugs are the most prized pieces in our collection because they’re crafted manually. What’s more, they’re constructed using millions of knots to make their colors and patterns truly stand out. 

Flat-woven rugs, on the other hand, are less complex but are still a great option for decorating your space. Even though they don’t have any knots, they have the same design on both sides. That means you can flip the rug over without noticing the difference. Meanwhile, our most affordable pieces are power and machine-loomed rugs. They are made using synthetic fibers and natural materials.

Colors and Decorating Tips

When choosing a rug, there are two things you’ll need to consider: your current decor and where you plan to place the rug. 

If your space already has a vibrant atmosphere, try to adorn your floors with a black and white area rug to tone down some of the visual noise. If your space already has monochromatic colors, consider adding a traditional square area rug to give your room a more energetic vibe. Take heart: the whole point is for you to achieve a sense of balance. 

After considering the current design of your space, pay attention to the room’s size. If your room is small, make sure your rug only covers a fraction of the space to avoid making it look too cramped. If you have a large room, pick square area rugs that are large enough to be noticed. Complement the rug with matching furniture and other accent pieces for a cohesive look.

For example, a large blue area rug placed in a pastel-colored dining room can add a sense of calmness to your space. Meanwhile, a black and white area rug will truly stand out in a large room with rich colors.

Meanwhile, if you have a much smaller rug, it’s better to place it on the side of the bed. This will create a soft spot where you can rest your feet after a long day or before you climb onto your bed. Just make sure it doesn’t make you prone to slips or falls so you may want to add a rug pad underneath to hold your rug in place.
