Vintage Inspired Rugs: Timeless Beauty for Every Room
We are living in a vintage renaissance and we couldn't be happier. With the rebirth of wallpaper, mid-century modern decor, and velvet upholstery, we’re loving how this vintage influence is making its way into home styling. While we are suckers for a beautiful thrifted piece of furniture (hello anything cane), we know that some things, like fabric and textile items, are better off as new purchases. That’s why we love vintage style rugs.
From deep blues blended seamlessly with ruby red to sleek neutrals featuring the perfect amount of fade in just the right places, we’ve curated our favorite designer inspirations just for you. Spanning traditional styles to spaces full of sophisticated eclecticism, peruse affordable, vintage inspired rugs so you can find the perfect one for your space, no matter which room you're looking to outfit.
These woven beauties come pre-worn and prepared to wow without any surprises (like those stray pet hairs that definitely don’t belong to your beloved fur-baby). Well, they’ll surprise you when you see just how amazing a vintage style rug can look in any room.
FOR THE TRADITIONAL HOME
Traditional style rooms, with their classic features, warm, welcoming tones, and dramatic accessories are the perfect home for a vintage rug. This design style has, perhaps, the most history in its bones because it cannot be pinned to one time period.
Traditional spaces can be saturated with dark, heavy wood and rich fabrics like velvet or feature white trim and dreamy coastal decor. Make it cozier with a vintage style rug that compliments the existing color of the room.
Using a vintage-inspired rug in a traditional room can elevate the space from a beautiful traditional bedroom to a glamorous getaway where you’ll want to spend all your time. A rug with multiple colors woven into its pattern will feel right at home with the rich textures and hues of a traditional space. It will also tie together different parts of a room that might have competing colors scattered about.
BRING VINTAGE FLAIR INTO TRANSITIONAL DESIGN
While the traditional style has so much history sewn into its fibers, there is a more contemporary style that holds the best of traditional and modern decor in its heart. Yes, we are talking about transitional design. You’ll probably find an image of this design trend when you look up “versatile” in the dictionary.
SAY HELLO TO OUR FAVORITE KITCHEN RUNNERS
Using a vintage style runner in a transitional kitchen is a must! The kitchen is where we do the most standing so why not soften the experience with a runner? Heavily saturated runners can add color to those pristine white kitchens while a more neutral runner will pair beautifully with colored cabinets and bold kitchen islands.
WE’RE ALL ABOUT SOPHISTICATED ECLECTICISM
One of the easiest places to incorporate a vintage style rug is into sophisticated, eclectic spaces that have a more curated, worldly personality. You’ll be in heaven when you see just how cozy a vintage style area rug can make these spaces feel!
Honestly, we can’t think a single space that wouldn’t benefit from a vintage rug. Their versatility, beauty, and classic style brings charm and history to a room and can create a beautiful palette of colors for you to work with. The best thing about vintage style rugs? You can get the look without paying those vintage and antique prices 😉.
