Regardless of the size of your space, you’re bound to find a rug that suits you at Wayfair. Their rugs range in size from 2′ by 3′ to 9′ by 12′, and you can shop their rug selection accordingly with the room you’re looking to decorate. Two day shipping is always available on the thousands of rugs they offer.
RugsUSA deals exclusively in rugs, and that means that you can rely on them to provide you with a comprehensive selection of styles and materials, but the real selling point here are their deep discounts. Promo codes of up to 70 and sometimes 80% are readily available throughout the year, and they ship their orders out remarkably fast.
3. Natural Area Rugs
Natural Area Rugs offers a wide assortment of natural rugs made of jute, wool, grass and sisal. If you prefer all natural home products, you definitely want to check out this online retailer. The website is easy to use.
Houzz sells a ton of area rugs. They’re one of the largest online retailers for home and garden products. Houzz carries options for every room of the house, many different materials and they have a good selection of kids rugs. What I really like about this site is how you can quickly filter down your options by size, color, pattern, material and room.
BoutiqueRugs is a boutique area rug online store that sells only rugs. My favorite section is their “most popular” section which gives you a good ideas as to what’ s in demand right now.
PlushRugs is yet another online retailer dedicated to selling mostly plush rugs, including shag rugs. If you like thick and plush, check out this option.
Caitlin Wilson is a boutique home decor website that sells wool, jute and flat weave area rugs. You can tell this retailer takes great care in selecting each item listed for sale. I like these curation-style retailers because if you like their style, they narrow down your options quickly by choosing on the best.
GetMyRugs.com offers many rugs. It sells only rugs of all sizes, colors, patterns and styles. However, the site is a bit dated. It’s worth a look though because of the selection.
FanCaveRugs.com offers sports-themed area rugs so you can display your favorite teams. These are ideal for a TV room, man cave, den, or wherever you want to make it known who your favorite team is.
Designer-Rug’s website makes it easy to look for area rugs by size and other attributes. This site offers a good number of options in addition to other products for the home. Rugs are their staple product though.
11. Super Area Rugs
Super Area Rugs is an okay option to check out.
Wovenly Rugs offers a 60 day trial period which is fantastic. This gives you the opportunity to return it if it’s not perfect for your home. I also like how when you get to the site, you can immediately scroll all kinds of area rug options.
Target may be a good place to buy your regular house goods, but they also have an extensive selection of rugs in a variety of styles. It’s worth noting that they’ve also partnered with designers like Nate Berkus to provide exclusive high style rugs at prices you’re unlikely to beat new anywhere else. You’ll also find a much larger selection than you will at their brick and mortar outlets.
14. Lulu & Georgia
While the selection at many rug retailers can start to feel redundant, Lulu & Georgia has a personality all their own. They draw from classic Persian designs and patterns, but the vibrant splash of color they bring to their rugs really make them pop and stand out from the competition. They’re well worth checking out if you want a conversation piece.
IKEA may be most well known for their sensible and oddly priced furniture, but you can find a bounty of rugs at their online store. Their low prices make them an ideal choice for college students. Just keep in mind that these tend to be rugs that are built to sell rather than rugs that are built to last for years.
eCarpet Gallery offers a number of nice rugs, but the pieces that really stand out from the competition are their berber and wool selections. You also have multiple ways to shop. In addition to maintaining a dedicated storefront site, they also sell their selection of wares directly through eBay.
17. Arro Home
Arro Home has made a unique niche for themselves – a blend of bohemian and colorful that can cheer up just about any room. This Australian rug retailer features a number of patterns that draw inspiration from aboriginal art, and that’s enough to make it worth checking out all on its own.
Overstock’s claim to fame is in the name. They buy up overstocked items from other retailers in bulk and offer them at prices far lower than what you’ll find in the store. That means that the rugs available can vary wildly depending on the season, but there’s usually a pretty extensive collection to browse. At the right time of year, these can number in the tens of thousands.
No list of online retailers would be complete without a mention of Amazon. They offer just about everything, and their rug selection is no exception to the rule. Especially useful is the fact that they offer selections from third-party sellers as well. Just keep in mind that the navigation of their rug section can be a bit disorganized, so finding what you want could take some work.
20. West Elm
While many dealers end up with stock that’s redundant with their contemporaries, there’s something fresh and likable about West Elm’s styles. Their frequent collaborations with well-regarded designers mean that they often offer selections that you won’t find anywhere else, and the inspirations behind their designs vary from classic Persian rugs to Native American patterns.
21. World Market
World Market’s selection of rugs may be limited, but they’re worth checking out if you’re looking for a small throw or accent rug. Unfortunately, they don’t carry a selection of larger rugs, and the majority of their goods are printed rather than woven, but they tend to be highly durable and tough.
22. T.J. Maxx
Much like Overstock, T.J. Maxx keeps their prices low by purchasing rugs at discounts from other retailers. This comes with its advantages and disadvantages. You can often find very high-quality rugs at as much as 10% of the retail price, but hunting down the rug you’re looking for can require some vigilance. The nature of their business model means that what’s available can vary on a day to day basis.
23. Dash & Albert
While traditional Persian rugs and more colorful and eclectic designs tend to dominate the online rug market, Dash & Albert is the place you can go if you’re in search of something more quiet. Their reliance on grayscale and variations of beige and their more muted design makes for a collection that can complement a room without overpowering it.
24. Urban Outfitters
Urban Outfitters is the place to go when you want a rug that matches the style of the here and now. Bright, playful, and delightfully bohemian, their rug selection is carefully curated, and you can depend on them to add new signature rugs to their catalog on a regular basis.
25. Pottery Barn
Home goods store Pottery Barn is no slouch when it comes to rugs that can accent a room. Their selection of rugs covers a wide variety of stylistic influences, but it’s also carefully curated. When you want a rug but you’re not looking to sift through the piles and piles of options available at larger retailers, Pottery Barn has you covered.
Kilim deals exclusively in (you guessed it) kilim rugs. Originating in central Asia and the Middle East, these easy to maintain tapestry rugs have gained popularity in the last few years. Kilim.com’s selection is extensive, and they offer new, used, and custom made rugs for their clients.
27. Canary Lane
All of Canary Lane’s rugs are commissioned exclusively for them, so no one’s rug hunt should be complete without at least a quick visit. They specialize in vintage designs with modern flair, but that covers a wide amount of territory. Modernist, Arabic, and Peruvian sensibilities all get an opportunity to shine in their catalog.
28. Z Gallerie
Distinct, bold, and hyper-modern are all words that could be used to describe Z Gallerie. You can shop by patterns, solids, or hair on hide styles directly through their catalog, and they also offer New Zealand shag styles.
Another one of those retailers that offers perpetually low rates on rugs, eSalesRugs marks down all of the products in their catalog to half the standard retail price. While many of the things you’ll find here are available at other discount sites, their selection of Persian and Oriental rugs are especially impressive.
30. Joss & Main
Many of the rugs you’ll find at Joss & Main will be redundant with other discount retailers, but a visit can often uncover some hidden treasures. As far as discount sites go, they’re slightly ahead of the pack regarding current trends, and they run regular flash sales.
Many of the more prevalent online rug retailers pride themselves on their low prices, but Anthropologie takes a different tact. The quality of their rugs are top notch, and you’ll always find exclusive designs in their store, but you can expect to pay a privilege for the opportunity.
32. One Kings Lane
While One Kings Lane may look like any other online rug retailer on the surface, a deeper dive reveals a huge selection of vintage rugs. That makes them one of the top shops to check out when you’re looking for a one of a kind classic for your home.
33. Crate & Barrel
The rugs at Crate & Barrel are unlikely to spark too much imagination, but they’re sturdy, functional, and classic, and that makes them one of the best choices around when you want a rug that’s designed to cover a room without standing out like a sore thumb.
Aelfie is the place to go when you want legitimate and durable Indian rugs straight from the source. Their modernist designs make them stand apart, and the majority of their rugs sport bright colors or bold graphics befitting designated centerpiece accents.
