TRA­DI­TIONAL COL­ORS AND DE­SIGNS—WITH AN EDGE

Vin­tage 1930s to 1940s Per­sian Heriz rugs are a fa­vorite of our brand, be­cause they typ­i­cally have such time­less ap­peal with tra­di­tional col­ors of blue and red and a bold geo­met­ric de­sign. We find that a lit­tle bit of dis­tress and wear adds to the rug’s char­ac­ter and ap­peal.

BIG­GER IS BET­TER

Cus­tomers are opt­ing for larger rugs, such as 8’ x 10’, 9’ x 12’ and 10’ x 14’ in­stead of the for­merly pop­u­lar size of 5’x 7’. Big­ger rugs take up more of the space and be­come a key high­light of the room.

THE NEW NEU­TRAL

For us, neu­tral no longer means beige and white, but a bolder black and white. While in fash­ion black is known as a neu­tral color, in rugs black can be a bit too bold for some. But we have no­ticed that we can­not keep our char­coal, black and dark gray mixed with white rugs in stock!

LAY­ER­ING

Lay­er­ing pieces with bold con­trasts has be­come pop­u­lar as well, of­fer­ing a very West Coast, sum­mery and beachy feel. Peo­ple are opt­ing for our blanched jute rugs (white in­stead of the nat­u­ral beige tone) to go un­der­neath darker toned vin­tage and an­tique rugs.
