Round Rugs Are Suddenly Everywhere: Here Are 7 We Love
Something interior designers always contend with is finding a balance of shapes within a room, because modern homes end up with a lot of rectangles and right angles. TVs, couches, cabinets, beds, tables — they all have a tendency to be rectangular in shape, which can end up feeling one-note.
Enter: A round rug. I’ve seen circular rugs everywhere lately, including in the home of design blogger Erin Wheeler of Sunny Circle Studio (and you can find the exact rug below!), designer Jonathan Adler’s recent collab with Ruggable, the washable rug brand, and as a new addition to longstanding rug brand, Dash & Albert.
Sure, you could get a rectangular rug for your space, but some rooms and areas really benefit from a bit of curvature. Take a dining room, for example: Whether your table is round, square, or rectangular, adding a round rug grounds the space into a distinct area, which is especially helpful in an open floor plan. Round rugs are also a great option for framing a reading nook, adding a cozy accent next to a crib, or creating a unique moment in an entryway. Says Dash & Albert’s founder Annie Selke, “Round rugs also work particularly well with all the lovely, curved sofas we’re seeing these days.”
