Looking for the best place to buy rugs? You’re not alone—shopping for stylish floor mats can be one of the most daunting parts of the interior decor process, between selecting size, color, texture, and, well, where to even go to pick one out. In the age of the internet, where options are endless and quality can be hard to suss out, the task of selection can be overwhelming. And while items like clothing and shoes are easy to return, lugging a whole rug back to UPS? Not so much.
So with that in mind, we decided to compile the best places to buy rugs online. Some are for the traditionalists, some, for the minimalists, and some are for those who want to dress their floor with a bold statement. But the one thing they have in common? All focus on well-made, long-lasting creations.
Below, our picks.
Beni Rugs are chic and conscientious: the handwoven creations, made high in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, honor the region’s time-honored artistic tradition while paying a fair wage to the female weavers who craft them. They combine classic with modern designs—a new collection by Athena Calderone called “Broken Symmetry” takes cues from Luis Barragán—and are almost endlessly customizable in size, color, and design.
Rug Company, as the name implies, is, yes, a company that sells a wide array of high-end rugs. But it’s also created quite a buzz for its fashionable collaborations, releasing collections with everyone from Rodarte, to Alexander McQueen, to Dave Chihuly. Recently, they collaborated with cult designer Mary Katrantzou on several new designs.
Nordic Knots commits to weaving clean, minimalist rugs that fit the uber-popular Scandinavian design aesthetic. Recently, they announced a new capsule collection with cult home brand Arjé, which is known for their dedication to warm minimalism.
The word “Revival” in Revival Rugs is a nod to the company’s main mission of restoring and reselling vintage rugs that they source from Turkey and Morocco. (Although for those who want new rather than old, they also offer a selection of modern rugs made from their in-house design studio.) Their selection is plentiful (there’s even outdoor rugs) yet not overdone, and their website is refreshingly easy to navigate.
For Earth Day, they’re even moving into repurposing other textiles, releasing a new collection of rugs made from recycled denim.
Soho Home, the home design studio offshoot of the member’s only club, offers a curated selection of hand-knotted vintage rugs as well as more contemporary geometric styles designed by their in-house creatives. Better yet, they have an extensive rug guide on their website to make sure you find the perfect choice for your home.
Sometimes, you just want to make a statement. In that case, head over to Ssense, which offers colorful, avant garde rugs by Alexa Proba, Off White, Okej, and even the playfully named “Ugly Rugly.”
