Hot Trend – Layering Rugs

Posted in Tips & Trends

We love the latest design trend of layering rugs. Layering elements in a room add pattern, color and texture that give any room an interesting and cozy feel. Most often a patterned rug is layered over a solid. However, layering multiple prints can be beautiful as well.


The grand proportions of this entryway were enhanced with rugs well proportioned to the space. The rugs draw your eye straight to the outdoors.

A zebra hide (or faux rug) is a classic for layering.

A collection of layered oriental rugs create an old world feeling in this library.

If you have a patterned rug you love, but it is just too small for a space, try layering over a larger solid.

Layering subtle pattern rugs add interest to a room with a neutral color scheme.
