Area & Accent Rugs

Rugs do much so more than cover the floor. Rugs create ambience and influence the rest of a room’s design. Area rugs define spaces and anchor a room while smaller accent rugs add color, style, and texture to the design. Whether indoors or outdoors, rugs add softness and dampen sound to create a sense of intimacy.

Since rugs are often the largest accessory in a room, we recommend choosing a rug that provides a foundation that feels cohesive and comfortable. Take the following factors into consideration when making your selection, and be confident in the quality and selection of every detail in your beautiful space.

Rug Style & Pile

Style and pile are two characteristics of rugs that contribute to the overall feel of a room. Whether your space is residential or commercial, indoor, indoor/outdoor, or outdoor, we offer accent and area rugs in the following style categories:

  • Hide, leather, fur
  • Outdoor
  • Indoor / Outdoor
  • Shag
  • Bohemian / Global
  • Southwest / Tribal
  • Solid & Border
  • Modern / Contemporary
  • Natural Fibers
  • Casual / Transitional
  • Traditional
  • Updated Traditional

Pile describes how far the fibers extend vertically from the rug’s backing. Higher pile, such as shag rugs, provides more cozy softness, but also absorbs more dirt and requires more care than easy-care no pile flatweave rugs, which are more appropriate for higher traffic areas.

Rug Construction & Quality

Historically, rugs reflected history and culture as art. People hand-crafted them by weaving, knotting, looming, hooking, or tufting natural fibers like wool. Those methods result in rugs of premier quality that hold up for generations. Today, power looms can weave or side-weave yarns in a variety of synthetic and natural fibers. Machine-made rugs from top manufacturers rival the quality and craftsmanship of their handmade counterparts at more affordable prices.

At Design Resource & Fabrics, we work with some of the best design-manufacturers in the business. They offer standard sized area rugs, smaller accent rugs, various shapes of rugs, runners, and even custom sizing options. Each of them creates durable, quality rugs using unique combinations of fibers, design details, and construction methods.

Finishing Touches

While the construction method and raw material integrity contribute to quality, a few other factors prolong the life of a rug. A tight weave in the rug itself and in its backing holds the fibers close together and wears less over time. A good rug pad underneath also limits wear on a rug, keeps it solidly in place, and protects the flooring underneath. Manufacturers provide guidelines for proper care, and in case you need them, they offer special finishes and fibers that protect rugs from stains and sun damage.
