A rug can really make a space and is a simple way to update your contemporary home interior design and transform a room. Rugs add warmth and help to reduce echo in rooms with lots of hard surfaces. So, whether you’re looking for statement rugs, calming rugs, chic rugs, on-trend rugs, kids rugs contemporary rugs, round rugs, square rugs, or rectangular rugs, here’s my pick of some of the best online rug shops to help you search. If you’re searching for an interior designer to assist your search, then get in touch!

Nordic Knots

3.6 on Trustpilot

Overview

Nordic Knots is a family business who say their rugs are inspired by the beauty of the Nordic light, colours and landscape. With timeless Scandinavian interior design, high-quality materials, and free delivery in 3-6 business days, they want to bring the Nordic aesthetic from their home to every home.

Their Scandinavian rooted belief of functional design and minimalist aesthetic can be seen in their range of beautiful textured and minimally patterned rugs.

The rugs are designed in Stockholm, and handmade in India by adult artisans, meaning they are GoodWeave™ certified, contributing to ending child labour.

Website

The website is very easy to navigate, and clearly laid out with a simple menu structure. There’s a useful ‘look book’ section, with large, beautiful photography of room sets with a strong Scandinavian minimalist and hygge feel to it.

You can search by style or colour, and usefully filter by size, but also availability, saving you the need to go into each product page to find delivery times. I quite like the curated feel of the range, there aren’t hundreds of styles to choose from, avoiding scrolling fatigue! Each product page has all the info you need, including sizes available, delivery times, production info, and high-quality images of the rug in room sets. You can order small samples before you buy your rug, to try for colour and style at home.

Not only do they sell rugs, but wool blankets in similar styles, and a few funky door mats. There’s a short FAQ’s section and a good care guide. Delivery is free, but they do make a charge if you wish to return a rug.

Range

There’s a good range of styles, not hundreds, but all good designs. From organic shapes to geometric patterns and abstracts. From natural calming tones to earthy colours and some brighter shades, there should be enough for the style conscious buyer.

My Pick
https://nordicknots.com/eu/product/plus-black-cream/
From £265

My career as a Designer and Creative Director means a bias that made me choose the ‘Plus’ rug. A contemporary, minimalist design in a range of natural colours, and some brighter shades. Hand woven in small batches in high quality New Zealand wool for a soft luxe interior design feel that will last a lifetime.

Ruggable

Overview

Ruggable say “Creating beautiful, clean spaces, one machine-washable rug at a time”, their USP being the ability to wash their rugs. Their patented rug system comes in two pieces: a lightweight rug cover and a nonslip rug pad.

There’s a great range on the site, in many styles to suit everyone. And it feels like there’s a design-led approach. They have a specific range from American Interior Designer Jonathan Adler, in funky geometrics, and even a snake design. There is a lot of choice, so you might find yourself scrolling. You can filter well so this reduces too much trawling to find what you need.

The site seems customer service orientated with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and lots of useful information. The rugs are made to order, but I couldn’t find where they were manufactured.

Website

The website is easy to navigate, with all areas within easy reach of the home page. You can shop by size (with useful diagrams), shape, colour and new arrivals. There’s a bestsellers section so you can have a nosey at the most popular styles!

There’s a pretty good FAQ’s section along with excellent washing guides, and a ‘how it works’ with video content.

Delivery is free in the UK, but there is a processing fee, if you choose to return an item. Sign up to their newsletter and you’ll get a handy 10% off your first order.

Range

Ruggable do have an extensive range. Bohemian, contemporary, Moroccan, floral, Persian, geometric and kids. They have rugs for every style preference, so there should be something for everyone especially if you’re looking for a contemporary interior design feel.

My Pick
https://ruggable.co.uk/products/jonathan-adler-inkdrop-lapis-blue-rug?size=150×215
From £109

Part of their Jonathan Adler range (Catch phrase ‘minimalism is boring’). The Ink Drop rug, inspired by ink lines, in a denim blue has a perfect combination of a sophisticated colour scheme and a contemporary pattern.

Bombinate

Overview

Ok, so not strictly a rug seller, more of a lifestyle brand that sells homewares and clothing. They carefully curate the brands they sell through four pillars: Quality, Craftsmanship, Story, Impact, and say that they touch, see and feel every product.

They sell consciously designed and crafted products, made to last, in workshops by skilled people.

Here’s what they say about themselves: “In a world that has lost touch with the meaning of quality, we oppose the short-lived thrill of trends and “fast fashion” to remind you what value should be. Determined to unearth brands and pieces that share those values, we’re paving a path for those who, like us, demand more from the products they use every day – conscious manufacture, detail and quality”.

Website

Under ‘Home & Living’ you’ll find their rugs section. You can search by colour, brand and price, but not by style. At the time of writing, they only have 276 designs, not a problem for me as I like most of them, and I don’t like trawling through pages and pages. Less is more on this site, and it oozes ‘curated’.

Each product page has several views of the rug, useful delivery date estimates, sizes available, product info and the story behind each brand.

Shipping is by each individual brand, so fees vary by location and brand. Unusually, returns are free, even for brands that don’t offer this on their own sites.

If you need to contact them, you can call or chat. There is a comprehensive FAQ’s section, but of course this is generic to all products, nothing specific for rugs.

Range

The curated nature of the range means there are not pages and pages. Brands include Nordic Knots, Myfelt, Tiipoi, Emko, Rug Solid, Gan Rugs, and Edito. The collection is Scandinavian in feel, design-led, graphic and contemporary.

My Pick
https://bombinate.com/shop/gan-rugs/nude-petrol-killim-diamond/2000001003811820396
From £691

This Gan Killim Diamond rug is a diamond shaped outdoor rug, that could also be used inside. The translucent, overlayed colours create real impact. It’s Crafted from 100% recycled plastic bottles (PET).
