A rug often serves as the grounding influence in your space, drawing other décor elements in a room together with color, texture, and pattern. At Lulu and Georgia, we have a curated collection of floor rugs that will give your home both elevated style and individual personality. Bring in a rug with muted, neutral hues as a base for all things quiet and calm. Choose a Moroccan shag for a cozy, inviting appeal that’s soft underfoot. For a warm, authentic style, pick a vintage rug; rich in color with character and history.
Not sure what size or style of an area rug to choose for your home? Don’t worry, we have you covered. Check out a few tips below for shopping rugs online.
When you decide to buy area rugs, consider the space, and get your dimensions right. In general, bigger is usually better when it comes to rug size. A large area rug for your living, dining room, or home office acts as an anchor and makes a room feel cozy and conversational. If a rug is too small, a room can often feel bare and disconnected. So, make sure to confirm the dimensions of the room before you buy rugs online.
Know your space well. For instance, living room rugs should fit under all of the main pieces of furniture in a room, or at the very least under the front legs of your sofa or coffee table. For bedrooms, try an 8’x10’ or 9’x12’ sized piece to place under your bed, or place two smaller floor rugs on each side of the bed for soft texture and visual interest. In a hallway or galley kitchen, a runner rug adds depth and movement to a space, keeping it from feeling too narrow or flat.
When choosing rugs online for a bathroom, we recommend selecting a dedicated bath mat, preferably a super absorbent one that is machine washable. In larger bathrooms that have more space, consider a smaller 2’x3’, 3’x5’, or runner rug to place in front of the sinks—that will add softness as well as patterned design. Whatever your choice for the bathroom, a little moisture won’t hurt, but just be sure not to let your rug sit in standing water.
Thanks, It’s Vintage
A vintage rug tells a unique story, one filled with a rich culture and history. Well-crafted and authentically handmade, it instantly transforms a room, bringing warmth, vivid color palettes, and personality. Our curated collection of exclusive vintage rugs feature rare designs and luxurious weaves, all while feeling like a discovery from far-flung travels.
Anchor your living room décor with a vintage rug for a refined, traditional look. Or you can add one to a farmhouse-chic kitchen, where the old-world style of the rug complements and then enhances the warm and rustic aesthetic. In a bedroom, vintage area rugs make the space feel elevated, intimate, and cozy. Try pairing it with soft, light linens, upholstered bed frames, and handmade accents or woven baskets. To create a luxe moment, we love the neutral pinstripes and heathered look of the Pom Pom At Home Logan Duvet, especially when mixed with the eye-catching reactive glazes of the Regina Andrew Porcelain Bud Vases.
However you choose, a vintage rug is truly an investment for your home, a stunning one-of-a-kind centerpiece to build around and then layer on your style.
Traditional, Persian-style rugs add vintage appeal to a room. Classic styles often have deep hues like burgundy, gold, and navy, adding warmth and richness to any space. More modern designs feature bold and fresh tones for a punchy pop of color in a light, white space. Shop our thoughtfully-curated online rugs selection and add a traditional-style rug as the anchor in your master bedroom or even in a nursery. It will instantly add an elevated and antiqued look, especially when styled with natural wood furniture pieces and brass accessories. We think the inviting neutral fabric color and red oak plinth base of the Lockwood Bed by Ginny Macdonald blends beautifully with a traditional-style area rug, lending your bedroom a tailored and timeless look.
Hand-knotted floor rugs are crafted by skilled artisans who tie each knot by hand. They are constructed from high-quality materials like wool and silk, making them incredibly durable and long-lasting. This labor-intensive process can take months and often years to complete, making each rug incredibly special and unique. Because of this, these distinctive rugs are meant to be heirlooms and are passed down from generation to generation.
Exclusive Designer Collections
At Lulu and Georgia, we're proud of the company we keep. From up-and-coming makers to celebrated brands, we are excited by the relationships we have cultivated. That includes three designer capsules—Sarah Sherman Samuel, Jenni Kayne, and Lemieux Et Cie—you can now shop rugs online for. Whether you are in search of statement-making flatweave kilims, vintage-inspired Moroccan-style area rugs, or timeless and textural floor rugs, all of these exclusive lines evolve your space's style.
This collection by multidisciplinary designer Sarah Sherman Samuel was inspired by her love of vintage Moroccan shags and kilim flatweaves. The result is an interpretation of those classic designs for every room in your house, and that showcase Sarah’s signature style: relaxed but edited, modern but warm.
Our Jenni Kayne x Lulu and Georgia collection was created by fashion designer and tastemaker, Jenni Kayne. This collection of floor rugs reflect her California-inspired aesthetic and are perfect for layering atop one another. They bring warm neutrals, timeless patterns, and a ton of texture to any space in your home.
The Lemieux Et Cie capsule plays with materials and patterns, mostly in rich, moody, or earthy, neutral color palettes. Incorporating natural fibers like wool and jute, these flatwoven rugs are beautiful and durable area rugs that can stand up to high-traffic areas like entryways, hallways, living room, and dining rooms.
Layering floor rugs for a living room adds a warm, textured element, making it feel well-loved and lived-in, while still looking thoughtfully curated. We suggest choosing handwoven flatweaves as the base and then always using rugs with a similar color palette so that the tones complement each other without feeling too chaotic or busy.
If you want a cozy, eclectic feel, start by layering a larger jute rug as a base and then add a smaller Moroccan rug or vintage rug on top for warmth and visual interest. Smaller sheepskin area rugs are also great for layering, and they offer a soft touch for added texture and comfort. If you like a more minimalist look, choose neutrally-hued throw rugs for your living room with different textures, which gives dimension to a space without overwhelming it with too much color and pattern.
When you search for area rugs online at Lulu and Georgia, you’ll find pieces that will make your home feel elevated, yet also relaxed and casual.
