We all know the fashion rule of wearing vertical stripes to look a bit slimmer, and just as stripes can elongate the body, they can also do the same for a room. Our designers suggest, “that when you’re looking to find a rug for a room, think stripes.” We’re particularly fond of the big graphic punch welded by black and white striped rugs.
You can find them in a variety of price ranges. From the low end at Ikea to Madeline Weinrib’s Versa Cotton Carpet, handmade in India, there’s a version for every budget. They are modern, graphic and surprisingly versatile. If you’re reluctant to make a big color decision, why don’t you let the pattern do all the talking? And if the rug is for your dining space, don’t miss our How to Choose a Dining Room Rug.
