There’s something about black and white pattered rugs that’s classic and contemporary at the same time. You can use them with pretty much any style of furniture and color palette—they are the ultimate of versatility. There are so many choices and price points available that it’s dizzying. If you just moved into a new home and are looking for one, or are looking to upgrade your rug, here are four we picked out to make your search a little simpler:
Draper Stripe Hand Woven Black Rug
This rug from Dwell Studio is super simple but packs a punch with its bold and thick stripes. It’s a flat weave, all wool, rug handmade in India.
Tidal Graph Wool Rug
This West Elm rug is more black than white—which is a unique departure from many black on white rugs. It’s a modern take on tribal patterns and sure to make your guests ask where you scored it!
You can’t beat the $199 price point of this hand made, 100 percent wool rug from Ikea. The rug is reversible so if one side gets dirty you can always use the other side. And if all this were not enough, it’s made by crafts people who are paid fair wages and work in good conditions, according to the furniture maker’s site.
These one of a kind CB2 rugs feature a black delicate pattern on an off-white base. They are hand knotted and all wool.
Melia Hand-Loomed Rug
We love the bold pattern of this hand loomed wool rug from Pottery Barn. The yarns are individually dyed, which means the color will last longer than printed rugs and it’s so soft you’ll want to take a nap on it!
