Shopping the New Arrivals: Area Rugs Section

When shopping this category for a new rug to enliven your space, you'll find plenty of on-trend options. There are lightweight cotton rugs for a casual look, such as the eye-catching Diamond Mix rug or the textured Stitched Mix sweater rug. If a wool-cotton blend is your preferred material, check out the Blocks + Bands rug, which features black and white blocks and bands for a high-contrast look.

Another material to consider for your next rug is viscose -- a silky, smooth fabric that's similar to cotton. West elm has an array of versatile indoor/outdoor rugs crafted from this material, such as the bold Framed Arrows rug, which has a Southwest-inspired look. Another option is the Optic Bordered rug, which is done in two complementary tones for an on-trend look. These indoor/outdoor viscose rugs can be coordinated with your patio furniture to add color and charm.

Wool is perhaps the most popular material for rugs. West elm gets new wool rugs in on a regular basis, such as the Warren Isensee rug, which is inspired by the artist's colorful geometric paintings. If you like a softer look, there's the Sunrise Hillside wool rug. It features gentle tones of pink, blue and white that were originally painted by an artists' brush then transferred to the rug using high-tech digital printing. Another wool rug is the Vista rug, which has ombre stripes for a stylish appearance.

The Importance of Rug Pads

Whether you choose an indoor rug or an outdoor rug, it's important to use a rug pad. Rug pads add a layer of thickness beneath your feet to make walking or standing on the rug more comfortable. In addition, they help protect the floor underneath the rug from spills seeping through and they prevent the rug from slipping. Most rug pads can be cut to fit the size of your rug.

Explore the New Arrivals: Area Rugs section at west elm to find the latest rugs in lots of different styles. These rugs come in various sizes, so you can find something to suit every room of your home.
