We have a deep appreciation for beautiful decor and design at Parachute. And lately we've been thinking about all the ways that a rug can elevate a room. Here are some tricks on how they can transform any room using our favorite bookmarked rugs and some of our own.

Sheepskin Rug

We love the look and feel of a sheepskin next to the bed. There’s nothing better than a plush landing pad for bare feet when you first wake up - or when you’re woken up by a little one. A veteran decorator recently shared this tip with us: Your bedside is the best place to put a sheepskin rug. You rarely wear your shoes to bed, so a delicate piece like this will have greater longevity since it will only see the soles of your feet.

Graphic Rug

A simple way to add texture to any room is by using a graphic rug. It’s an easy way to create visual variation without committing to bold colors or patterns. If you’re not quite ready to invest in a completely eye-catching design, choose a neutral, but still graphic one like ours. It adds interest without taking away from the other elements of your decor.

Kilim Rug

Kilim rugs often come in stunning patterns, or gorgeously simplistic ones, and leave an impact in any room. They can take months – or even years – to weave, making them an extra special purchase. We love the idea of putting one in a bathroom or kitchen to add warmth to a sometimes sterile part of the house.
