It's no longer just about Grandma's old lamp or Grandpa's post-WW1 piece of furniture but a fashionable style loved by more than one person. You are certainly one of the lovers of the vintage wave if you are looking for a carpet that will blend perfectly into your vintage living room to give it the desired look and harmony.


Several reasons can motivate your choice of vintage for your living room and bedroom rug. Among them, we quote you some of them.

Vintage, a guarantee of durability

Whether in carpets or any other object, vintage has a reputation for being very durable. It probably has to do with the fact that many vintage items are handcrafted using age-old techniques rather than machines. Vintage accessories only get better with time, like fine wine. They may discolour slightly with use, but this creates an even more stunning result. Ageing and wearing out over time makes these items, especially rugs, more unique, so you don't have to worry about putting one in a high-traffic area like the living room. Remember to turn the carpet over every two years to ensure even wear on each side.

Vintage, great versatility

Vintage rugs are the most obvious solutions for a vintage living room. However, their use does not stop there. These objects have the advantage of being able to adapt to different types of decorations and styles. In addition, you can get carpets for your living room, but not only. Vintage rugs are used in many rooms and can be easily moved from one room to another without destroying the harmony of styles in your home. Buying a vintage rug for your living room also means having an overview of the decorative elements in your home today and tomorrow.

Vintage, maintenance savings

Vintage rugs are great allies for people who would like not to wash their rugs daily. They hide dirt and wear very well. Even better, many vintage rugs are made from wool, which is very easy to clean if you spill something on it. However, avoid using chemical cleaners. If you're clumsy, favour a living room rug in rich browns, mossy greens, and grey fluffy rug colours. Spotting stains on these items is a real challenge. Vintage, freshness at the rendezvous When decorating, the term vintage should not be synonymous with ugly or old-fashioned. Many vintage rugs work well with today's furniture silhouettes. In addition, several models' patterns and colours are pretty current.


Need some inspiration to buy a rug that's perfect for your vintage living room? This list will certainly give you ideas.

The Tulu rug

Tulu is the English pronunciation of the Turkish word "tüylü", which means hairy. It is pronounced "two-lou". Tulus rugs have the particularity of being long piled and woven with large knots. They are made from the long, curly hair of the Angora goat (mohair), which makes them shiny, silky and soft to the touch. Tulu rugs are appreciated for their graphic and bold quality. The earthy tones of this rug would look lovely in a vintage living room, layered over a larger sisal or jute rug.

The Heriz rug

The Heriz rug, also spelt Herīs, is an oriental rug made by hand in one of the villages located near the city of Herīs, east of Tabrīz, in northwestern Iran. Heriz rugs are generally room-sized, sturdy, practical and attractive. They have found a clientele and a market in demand in Europe and the United States. They are an offshoot of Tabrīz rugs, a country version of urban styles. The gentle curves and the flowing lines of a sophisticated system of Tabrīz medallions are translated into hard geometric angles and broken outlines. Repeating patterns are less common, and a border of twisted vines and rosettes is characteristic. The 1960s Heriz rug would be perfect for upholstering a grey or navy sofa.

The faded rug

Find a vintage style with a crosshatch fade if you want something a little more understated. Indeed, the wear over time produces a soft, faded look that tones down the original colour palette and gives that slightly distressed but still gorgeous result.

Oushak rug

Oushak rugs are from the city of Oushak, located in centralwestern Anatolia. Nowadays, it is just south of Istanbul, Turkey. Unlike another Turkish faux sheepskin rug, those of Oushak were greatly influenced by Persian motifs. From the birth of the Ottoman Empire, Oushak was a significant centre of carpet production.

The Vintage Rugs

The Vintage rug is a rug handwoven in or around the city of Konya in south-central Turkey. Pieces of ancient carpets have been found in the ʿAlāʾ al-Dīn Mosque in Konya and attributed to the 13th century and the ruling Seljuks. Do you have a weakness for stripes? Then this golden guy is for you. Mustard-coloured stripes are punctuated with red and burnt orange geometric stripes in this traditional Konya flat weave.
