Bohemian rugs never really went out of style. They offer all the qualities of regular rugs such as floor protection, decorative accent, comfort, and a mode to express your supreme sense of style. Rugs are such common home furnishings that they might go unnoticed or be taken for granted. Bohemian rugs, well, they’re meant to grab attention. Here are some we recommend.
What to Look for in a Boho Rug
When shopping for a rug, think about the following:
- Purpose: Do you want a solely decorative rug or one that stands up to high-traffic areas like the kitchen? Do you want a rug that covers a large portion of your living room or a runner for a narrow hallway?
- Style: Bohemian or shag rugs were once intentionally jarring in appearance. But the trend has changed, and there are more subtle styles available. Others involve bright colors but emote cheerfulness rather than shock.
- Material: The most common material used is synthetic fibers like polypropylene. Some companies, though, prioritize natural fibers like cotton or wool. What’s important to you? Polypropylene textiles are easier to clean, more durable, and colorfast.
