18 Vintage Rug Choices To Make Any Room Extra Groovy

You can transform any room with a rug. Don’t believe us? Read on…

From a practical point of view, rugs are wonderful additions to homes with tiled or concrete flooring that can get cold during winter. They also protect your floors from furniture damage, can hide away ugly spots or scratches, and muffle your footsteps (your downstairs neighbors will thank you).

Something we love about rugs is that, unlike many other home-goods, you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for practicality. You can get the coolest looking rug that does the same job as a boring one - and nobody wants a boring rug.

Practicality aside: rugs are a design haven. You can find a rug in any size or style to suit your space and taste. They are non-committal (you don’t have to drill or paint anything), easy to move around and can be as bold as you want them to be.

For hipsters, a rug can also serve as an easy starting point for vintage collection and styling because there are so many antique-inspired rugs on the market. We could go on and on about our love of rugs, but we'll just show you instead. Here are our favorite rugs!
