Our Top Interior Rug Trends for 2024

Our Top Interior Rug Trends for 2024

As we settle into the new year, our team has put together what they predict to be the biggest trends seen in our homes for 2024. From crossing lines with the fashion world to embracing handmade designs, we’ve put together a list of what you can expect to see in every trend-forward home this year. 2024 is set to be a year of merging thoughtful curations with reliable materials and embracing personal style to elevate the sanctuaries that we call home.

Life in Colour

From high-fashion to the high street, the colour red dominated the fashion world in 2023 and is now spilling into our homes & onto our floors for 2024. Predicted to be the biggest colour of the year in the interior industry, we envision that this colour will be seen in every design-focused home. For those who prefer a more subtle approach to trends, incorporate red accents through soft furnishings such as cushions and rugs! A colour that is traditionally associated with hand-knotted Persian & Oriental rugs, introducing the colour red to your home adds a layer of depth and dimension and also draws the eye in, creating an inviting focal piece in every room.

“A cosy and comforting hue nurturing compassion and heartfelt kindness” is how Pantone describes their colour of the year, Peach Fuzz. Adding a peach-toned rug to your home decor can create a warm and inviting atmosphere that promotes relaxation and calmness. This shade of peach is versatile and pairs well with other warm tones such as beige, cream, and taupe, as well as cool tones such as grey and blue. A peach-toned rug can be used as a statement piece in a neutral room or incorporated into a more colourful space to add a subtle touch of warmth. Additionally, this colour can be used to brighten up a room without being too bold or overwhelming.

Irregular Shapes

Traditional rug shapes will always stand the test of time but there is a new trend forming as design-forward interior experts are leaning towards irregular rug shapes. Designed to stand out and create visual interest, irregular rugs are a statement piece that you can add to any room in your home. 

These unique pieces add texture and depth to any space and can be used to create a focal point in a room. Whether it's a free-form shape or an asymmetrical edge, irregular-shaped rugs are a great way to add personality to your home decor.

In addition to irregular shapes, natural-fibre rugs are also trending for 2024. These rugs are crafted from materials like wool, cotton, or jute, and are often hand-woven or knotted. Natural-fibre rugs bring a sense of warmth and cosiness and work well in spaces that have a rustic feel.

Mixing Old with New 

Another trend that is dominating the interior landscape is the current love for mixing modern finishes with old materials, think chrome accents and vintage rugs. Pairing these two very different tactile finishes together creates a perfect harmony between materials, resulting in an interior space that is designed to age gracefully. The juxtaposition of contemporary and traditional elements adds depth and character to any space, making it feel more inviting and unique. The key to achieving this look lies in finding the right balance between the two finishes. Too much of either can result in a disjointed and unbalanced design. By combining modern finishes with vintage materials, you can create a timeless and elegant space that is both functional and stylish

Stripes - A Timeless Staple 

A true beacon of classic design, stripes are simple yet timeless. Although it can be said that stripes have never gone out of fashion, expect to see them truly command the interior space even further this year. From bold stripes in striking colours to paired back designs in soft muted hues, stripes will be seen on every designer’s mood board this year. Our top pick? Nouveau Stripes Charcoal. Striking stripes are balanced with grounding  charcoal and ivory shades, creating a paired-back design with an inviting allure that'll create a visual anchor in any space.

 Embracing the Artisan

In 2024, we will be celebrating the art of handmade designs as interior experts lean towards sourcing one-off, unique design pieces. Our collection of Persian and Oriental rugs are lovingly crafted by skilled artisans who hail from centuries of experience. The skills handed down through generations and expert craftsmanship are reflected in the composition, with each unique piece crafted using 100% premium materials. These meticulous designs result in heirloom pieces, designed to transcend trends and last for generations. When you choose to shop for a hand-made rug you are choosing to champion heritage, embrace culture and celebrate the art of the maker. Need help choosing an authentic Persian or Oriental rug?
