Favorite Rugs for a Living Room

My husband and I have been dreaming a lot lately. We’ve been house hunting for a few months, and while we haven’t found exactly the right house yet, it sure is fun to dream of what our new home will look like. I personally can’t wait to have a little more space for our family to spread out!

One debate we’ve had is whether to have carpet or wood flooring in our living areas. I’m leaning toward wood flooring so it’s easier to clean and maintain (plus I just like the look of it), but my husband is a little more partial to carpet. So I’ve offered a compromise: wood flooring with a large living room area rug.

Living Room Rug

To aid in my search, I browsed Wovenly’s wide selection of stylish, cozy, contemporary living room area rugs. We would want a large rug in our living room, but these rugs are offered in a variety of sizes, whether you want one to sit under your coffee table or one to fill your room with color and pattern.

Here are some of my favorites:

Winston: Casual Geometric Rectangle Area Rug

Sure to keep you moving forward, the Alfresco collection of Surya provides elegant runners that look good from start to finish. The pointed geometric style with black and camel accents made out of 100% olefin is perfect inside or outside of your home. The sturdy construction and timeless design is sure to be a classic accompaniment to the unique trend preferences.

Wolfsheim: Contemporary Trellis Rectangle Area Rug

Graceful curves and strong lines dominate the contemporary style of the sumptuous Wolfsheim rug. A bold geometric trellis pattern is given an extra luxe touch with shimmering viscose fibers that offer extra definition to the chic mid-century modern design. In timeless, understated gray and white tones, the Wolfsheim rug is a plush pile essential for any sophisticated living space.

Desperado: Boho/Bohemian Southwestern Rectangle Area Rug

Desperado is a distinct, polypropylene rug, machine-woven in Turkey with intricate detail in stitching, highlighting its bohemian, global design. The cool aqua, beige, pink, saffron, and lime hues boast a playful yet elegant feel. The plush feel of the pile is soft and inviting.

Prosepina: Contemporary Floral Rectangle Area Rug

With the cleverly constructed Prosepina area rug, you can enjoy unbeatable style and functionality inside and out. A touch of preppy chic style is added to this contemporary design with a simple floral pattern that’s bold against a vibrant teal background. The Prosepina rug is rich in personality and timeless style thanks to a rich, minimal color palette and a smart-thinking construction that can live up to the demands of a busy household.

Heathrow: Persian & Moroccan Geometric Rectangle Area Rug

Heathrow is a unique, hand-tufted area rug runner that displays a contemporary Moroccan design. The appealing geometric trellis pattern adds to the fashion-forward feel of this piece and the heathered look creates an appealing textured dimension. Enjoy the deep, cerulean blue aesthetic of this contemporary piece, the perfect fit for any modern living space or dining room.
