Add the Finishing Touch to Any Space with the Right Rug // 4 Characteristics to Look For
It’s all in the details when it comes to choosing the right rug. Finishing details on rugs elevate a look and make your home feel more curated. Here are four different characteristics, each one unique to both your style and lifestyle. Which is your perfect match?
Oh how we love high-low textured rugs, let us count the ways! High-low rugs add depth and texture to a space. With a 100% woven base and knotted pattern, these natural, sustainable rugs are durable as well as dirt and stain-resistant. They are easy to clean with the swipe of a vacuum. Hand-knotted in India by skilled artisans, Amethyst’s Origin Collection is crafted of fine wool with a touch of viscose from bamboo.
Quick tip—When looking for a wool rug, wave or rub your hands quickly over it. Take note of how much wool you see flying in the air… this is how much you’ll see in your house. Try this as a good way to test out the rug before you commit! Even better…low pile hand-knotted rugs have minimal shedding!
Life can get messy. Whether you have kids or a dog, beautiful, lived-in designs make for worry-free, approachable rugs. The Layla Collection pictured above is traditional and timeless, capturing the spirit of an old-world rug. This power-loomed rug is crafted of 100% polyester with a classic and sophisticated color palette and subtle patina. It’s easy to spot clean when needed. We absolutely love the fabulous zig-zag finishing detail on its border as well!
If you have a lot of patterns in a room but don’t want a solid rug, meet the tone-on-tone rug! This beauty has both subtlety and dimension. Pair this rug with a statement piece for a truly curated look! Finely hooked of 100% wool, the carefully crafted Lyle Collection is acclaimed for its soft texture and muted color range. Each piece showcases space-dyed wool, which lends a subtle gradation of hues throughout the traditional motifs.
