A rug has the power to completely transform a room like few other home decor items, but they can be a bit of a headache to shop for considering there are so many retailers out there selling, quite frankly, really awful designs. So whether you're on the hunt now for a new floorcovering or know one day you will be, bookmark this post to reference our top 15 totally fabulous online sources for rugs.
The first rug I ever bought for my first ever grown up apartment came from RugsUSA, and since then I've purchased three others. Fast shipping, great prices (they perpetually have a 70% off coupon code, though on high holidays, I've seen that hit 80%), it's usually my first stop when looking for something stylish and affordable.
I've purchased many furnishings and decor items (including my bedroom rug) from Joss & Main. The flash sale site leans quite traditional in its style, and you'll likely find many of the same offerings as you would on Overstock or RugsUSA, but it's good to compare prices.
Another site with a constant "sale" (this one is always 50% off, so don't be fooled by their "ends today!" gimmick). Pricing tricks aside, I like eSaleRugs for their vintage, Persian- and Oriental-style rugs in particular. Prices range from super fair (around $200 for an 8x10 synthetic fiber rug) to quite pricey (their one-of-a-kind options can run you upwards of $3,000).
The Threshold brand from Target in particular has some fantastic, on-trend options. You can normally find a good range in-store, but for larger sizes (8x10 and up) and more variety, Target.com is the place to hunt.
For a boho touch, UO is always a go-to. Their printed flatweaves will likely be the most budget-friendly rugs you'll find on their site, but they also have some nice shag and tufted varieties.
Amazon can be tricky to navigate, and it can feel like the selection is endless and impossible to shop. I just recently found a shortcut, though, to their globally inspired rugs, which makes shopping for trendy styles so much less daunting.
You can shop eCarpetGallery two ways: via their e-commerce brand site, or (and my favorite way) on eBay. If you're on the hunt for traditional wool and berber vintage rugs with a global feel, don't miss this seller.
Though I think a vintage rug can bring tons of character to even the blandest of spaces, sometimes, you're looking for something a little different. Should you prefer rugs with a more beach-y or farmhouse appeal, this is where you'll find them (for pretty solid prices).
West Elm knows what it's doing in the style department, especially with their rugs. They'll cost you more than other rug-centric websites, but their rugs are usually made of natural materials and they often feature collaborations with designers.
Kilims (pronounced kee-leem) are all the rage right now (bonus points: they're easy to care for, are typically more affordable than traditionally tufted rugs and roll up easily for storage). For new, vintage, overdyed and custom-sized kilims, it's a no-brainer to shop a site with the products' namesake.
When an interior calls for something fun, funky and fresh, I always check out what's shakin' at Arro Home. All their measurements are in cm (the company is based in Australia), which takes me a second to convert to inches/feet, but the effort is well worth it.
There's always something new and exciting at One Kings Lane. Though they have a regular rotation of new items (much of the same inventory from other e-commerce sites), what's really special at OKL are their vintage offerings. If you see something you like, don't sleep on it, because the good stuff goes fast!
Everything at Lulu & Georgia just feels...happy. They manage to take traditional and Persian-style rugs that are more serious and spin them into something light and modern.
I first found Canary Lane via their Instagram, where I'd ogle their vintage runner rugs. Since then, I've moved over to ogling their entire selection of one-of-a-kind vintage stunners, as well as the Loloi Collection they sell (Justina Blakeney's line is fab!).
Handmade in Indian, you're getting a true artisan product at Aelfie with the spin of super modern design. Bright, peppy colors and graphic motifs are the hallmark of this newish-to-the-scene retailer.
