As a style editor, I'm inordinately obsessed with rugs - but I can assure you that's for good reason. Rugs play a pivotal role in anchoring furniture and shaping the ambiance of our living spaces. Beyond their decorative prowess, they contribute much-needed warmth and coziness, especially in rooms adorned with wood or stone floors.

Beyond their functional benefits, rugs are design chameleons, offering a canvas to play with shapes, establish focal points, and infuse personality into a space. They present an easy way to make a bold statement or inject a burst of color, providing a versatile alternative for those not quite ready for a daring, printed couch – easily replaceable and less of a commitment. 

With Amazon's extensive selection, the rug of your dreams is just a scroll away, seamlessly joining the ranks of our curated collection of the best Amazon home décor. After sifting through more pages than I thought humanly possible, I've curated a list of the best Amazon rugs available, ready to transform your space into a stylish haven.

How can I tell if a rug is good quality when shopping online?

Livingetc knows design. We spend hours testing and comparing the latest products, bringing only our edit of the very best to you. Find out more about how we review.

When it comes to rug quality, a higher knot count is crucial — the more, the merrier. Opting for high-density knots ensures a rug that stands the test of time.

Beyond that, think about qualities like fade resistance, durability, and easy cleaning. Enter the hero of rug materials: wool. Durable, stain-resistant, and cozy, it's a top pick for high-traffic areas like living or dining rooms and households with pets or children.

Cotton, which is like wool's more affordable cousin, is easy to clean but tends to wear out more quickly, necessitating more frequent replacements. On the more luxurious end, silk rugs are high quality and beautiful, but their delicacy requires professional cleaning.

Ultimately, the choice depends on your lifestyle and the amount of time and effort you're willing to invest in maintaining your rugs. With a myriad of options available, it all comes down to budget and personal preference!
