When we saw the black and white rug in Rhiannon and Victor's First "Grown-Up" Home, we decided, "That's it, we're putting together a black-and-white-rug roundup"...They're something we're seeing increasingly, and we're taking note. Some reasons why we like black and white rugs: the bold and graphic nature they introduce to a room, their generally strong patterns, and the way the black and white - no matter how strong the patterning - act as neutral and play off of whatever else is going on in the room (see image 4).
Rhiannon and Victor's rug (first image) is from Urban Outfitters. We don't see it there now, but their Tribal Macrame Trim Rug is another black and white option.
Others we've included here:
• 2 West Elm's Zig Zag Rug in ivory, iron, and Fez red
• 3 image by Roger Davies
• 4 Funky Zebra by Diane Von Furstenberg at The Rug Company
• 5 black and white cotton dhurrie rug from Wisteria (we really like this one)
One more must-mention is IKEA's Stockholm Rand rug. Have you spotted any other black and white rugs lately that you'd like to add to the list? Please comment below!
