Distressed Rugs

If you’re searching for eclectic finds, west elm distressed rugs are a good place to start. Create a look that’s comfortable and classic, without looking as if it’s trying too hard. Our distressed rugs are handcrafted in India with rich dyes, muted and distressed patterns, and they’re loomed from durable wool. They come in small and large sizes that can accommodate any space in your house, from the entryway to the living room, underfoot or anchoring glass coffee tables and dining room furniture. The luxury rugs are produced with a soft, distressed look that offer an heirloom quality that could have just as easily been a rare find from travels or a handed-down treasure you were lucky enough to inherit. Whether you’re just setting up a new home or adding a new rug to complete a room, these rugs tell a story of your style. They are an example of a worn-in, well-traveled look that anchors a room in texture and charm, making it feel cozy and cohesive while centering a room’s furniture and delineating the spaces.

A distressed rug can be subtle and neutral or a colorful centerpiece to the room, depending on the room’s color palette and furniture. Being neutral does not necessarily mean it blends in. With the right color choice, neutral solid rugs can make their own statement in a room. Finding the right shape of rug is also part of finishing a room. An oval rug in front of a comfortable chair makes it seem more inviting. Adding multiple rugs in various shapes and neutral colors opens a smaller space, while larger, patterned rugs can quietly separate spaces in a large, open-concept area. Area rugs also add warmth to your space, both in comfort and in ambience, especially on hardwood or tile floors. Even carpeted rooms benefit from an added area rug, especially when needing a pop of color or unexpected texture. Our natural jute boucle rugs add horizontal textural interest in the center of a room. Classically handwoven from sustainable jute, these rugs are versatile, reversible and highly durable in high-traffic areas.

Outdoor patios and porches deserve their fair share of style, too. Our all-weather area rugs are machine-loomed from polypropylene. They provide non-slip, stain resistance to a concrete slab patio, and add to the comfort of wood slat decking. In neutrals, patterns and colors, these outdoor rugs are easy to clean by wiping with a damp cloth, or directly with the hose when the occasion calls for it.
