Lee Radziwill once said, “I always begin a room with the rug; it is literally the foundation of the space,” and for those familiar with her homes, Radziwill’s suggestion is gospel. When shopping for the perfect rug, it is best to start with an empty room, and then begin to envision how the room should feel: bohemian or preppy, clean or maximalist. Make sure to know your dimensions as well, using blue painter’s tape, mark out the space that best suit the room. Then it is off to shop, and while the amount of rugs out there can be overwhelming, we’ve curated a list of some of our favorite places to peruse, breaking it down for indoor or outdoor rugs and neutrals versus patterns. Check out the best places to buy rugs, below!

Jonathan Adler Inkdrop Lapis Blue Rug
Best Washable Rugs: If you have kids, pets, or just a penchant for being clumsy, then these rugs are a miracle. They are all designed to be machine washable, but feel thick and comfortable underfoot, plus they have great designs, like this graphic number from Jonathan Adler. These rugs are especially great for kitchen or dining areas.
Tres Outdoor Black
Best Outdoor Rugs: Everyone has upped their backyard oasis situation over the past year, and it doesn’t get more cozy than a plush rug in your outdoor living spaces. Spanish designer Nani Marquina’s outdoor rugs are made with 100% recycled materials and look so chic, we would be tempted to move them inside.
Best Minimalist Rugs: Ben Soleimani grew up in the rug business and his inventory includes thousands of antique and contemporary rugs. He particularly has a gift for making neutral pieces that are elegant and never boring.
Rodarte Cobalt Floral
Best for Collaborations: If you love the look of Kelly Wearstler’s interiors, Diane Von Furstenberg’s dresses, or Dale Chihuly’s floral sculpture, The Rug Company has a rug for that. Their list of collaborators is impressive, with styles that will suit any home.
Sofie Vintage Turkish Rug
Best for Vintage Finds: Let me tell you that sourcing vintage rugs firsthand out at flea markets is tough. The piles are heavy (and often smelly) and it is hard to gauge what you like or not. Clicking through Revival Rugs is so much easier and you’ll still score that one-of-a-kind find.
Earth Maze Moroccan Shag Rug By Élan Byrd
Best Bohemian Rugs: If you want your home to feel layered and warm, like you happened to travel all over the world with an ever-expanding suitcase for all the furniture and decor you found along the way, then Lulu & Georgia is just your speed.
Best Jute Rugs: These handwoven beauties are finished with a scalloped edge and crisp white trim, elevating them far beyond the cheap straw mats you picked up in college.
Best Preppy Rugs: Western prep, classic prep, minimalist prep, you name it and, unsurprisingly, Ralph Lauren has the most polished version of it.
Sheepskin Area Rug
Best for Sheepskin Rugs: Overland is a family-owned business that has been working with sheepskin for nearly five decades. Their fuzzy offerings give off ski chalet vibes no matter how far from the slopes you might be.
ARTISTIC BENIOURAIN RUG Moroccan Handmade Rug Steel Blue and
Best Deals: Budget seekers should seek Etsy rather than a cheap big box store. The quality is better and you have your choice between vintage pieces and made new, all while supporting independent shops and makers.
Justina Blakeney × Loloi Ferox
Best Standout Designs: Animal print? ANIMAL? Florals? For the maximalists out there Loloi’s rugs are designed to command a room.
Best for Abstract Rugs: The soothing, color-saturated patterns for Cold Picnic are perfect for modernists who want something other than a plain white rug.
Glaoua Glyph Moroccan Rug
Best for Commitment Phobes: Decorating can be more difficult than most of us would like to admit. If you want to take your time finding just the right thing or if you will be in an apartment for a year or less, consider renting from ZZ Driggs. The certified B-corporation sources antiques and quality furniture and home decor, so your rooms will feel layered and comfortable, not like a showroom floor. (Plus, once you factor in the cost of furniture and moving, it’s a relative steal).
Best for Vibes: Founders Jodie Fried and Sally Pottharst are the coolest Australians around and their rugs are a reflection of their perfectly chill chic.
Best Rugs for LA Vibes: Whether you live in La La Land or just want a fun punch of color, Pieces Home has bright, trippy pieces for that soaked-in-sunshine effect.
