Braided Rugs for Today's Home Fashions and Lifestyles

Braided Rugs are a statement in and of themselves.  They represent a tradition that is a part of our history’s past.  However, decorating with a braided rug today does not consist  only of dark colors and a "country" motif that once would come to mind when some people would think of braided rugs.  Additionally, in today’s world, where everyone is busy, the last thing we want to do is spend our time maintaining a new rug.  Braided Rugs require very little upkeep, and will last forever with the proper minimal maintenance.

Braided rugs are available in a wide range of styles that will provide a statement to your décor.  Colors are brighter, from soft pastels to more jewel tones, and sizes can range from small scatter sizes up to full room size rugs.  New introductions of braided rugs in various shapes, offer a completely new twist to the traditional look.   A perfect example is an elongated octagon braided rug, placed under a dining room table.  This new look is a braided rug reborn for today’s times.


And for those looking for a more authentic styled braided rug that replicates the ones that someone's grandmother might have made at one time, would most likely be interested in a Cloth braided rug.  This category of braided rugs are made from all material and do not contain any filler.  Braided rugs made from cloth look the most like an actual hand made rug.

Braided Rugs are versatile in many different settings and motifs.  Whether “your style” is country, traditional, cottage, shabby chic, colonial, and now even bordering contemporary, a braided rug would certainly add charm to your décor.
