8 Unique Rugs that Everyone Should Own

One of the biggest misconceptions about rugs is that you need a simple design for a subdued or conventional interior space. Unique rugs have the amazing ability to fill a room with personality without being too loud or distracting.

If you want to give personality to a living or dining room, a rug should be the first thing to consider as a solution. Rugs are mostly affordable, they can age and get worn down without giving the room a dilapidated appearance, and they are considered to be art for your floor in the same way paintings are art for your walls.

Let’s take a look at 8 unique rugs that you should definitely consider for your living space.

Raffin Beige Brown Leaves Area Rug

Area rug with a size of 3’ x 5’ from Andover Mills is ideal for the living room or common area. It is big enough for a small living room set or dining room table and has natural tones, but a unique and simplistic design. The best thing about this rug is its price tag. Relative to other high-quality rugs with similar themes, this rug is ideal for the starter or student.

It is made from machine-woven polypropylene and eco-friendly and recycled wool and cotton. Overall, this is a high-end area rug that has a pile height of 0.47” –  making it more suitable for high-traffic areas and not really as a comfortable and soft floor cover.
