12 Unexpectedly Stylish Amazon Rugs To Shop — Some With Deals Too Good to Miss

As a style editor, I know a good rug (and deal!) when I see one. And I couldn't believe what I was able to find on Amazon

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, the best rugs expertly establish focal points and surreptitiously infuse personality into a space, almost like design chameleons. They present an easy way to make a bold statement or inject a burst of color but easily and casually, without the thousand-dollar commitment of a new couch or bedframe. And, of course, they feel oh-so-comfortable underfoot, not only chic and stylish but cozy and supportive to all those who stride across.

Some rugs will run you hundreds of dollars, depending on where you shop. But today, we’re focusing on one of my favorite places to buy affordable rugs (and throw pillows and sunglass organizers and candles...): Amazon.com. Believe it or not, Amazon home decor and furniture are actually quite chic and budget-friendly, so long as you know what to search for and how to look. Thankfully, that’s where I come in. As a style editor who values both good looks and good deals, I’ve spent the better part of the afternoon curating this special edit, which collates some of the best rug brands on Amazon – nuLOOM, Safavieh, and Loloi come to mind – with the most common rug styles (Persian, Patterned, etc.). The end result? A one-stop shopping edit rooted in editor experience, e-commerce knowledge, and customer reviews, to help you with your Amazon shopping.

How can I tell if an Amazon rug is good quality?

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!

What rug brands are available on Amazon?

In addition to smaller, lesser-known Amazon sellers, well-known brands like Ruggable, Loloi, Safavieh, NuLOOM, Jonathan Y, and Rugs USA are available on Amazon, as well. If you’re looking to buy a new rug right now, we’d recommend waiting until the Prime Day deals are live on July 16 and 17 in case some of these prestigious brands are offering discounts.
