Choosing Vintage Area Rugs - A Worn Out Pattern Built to Last

While not as bold of a statement as our other area rugs, such as the trending contemporary area rugs or our traditional area rugs - our vintage area rugs use a muted palette of colors that make these prints accent an ambiance well. While not primarily the room's focal point, the intricate design inherits from other area rugs, only re-imagined with faded out colors or patterns. With its worn patterns built far from the durability, let's take a look at choosing vintage area rugs.

What are Vintage Area Rugs?

Before we get into choosing our vintage area rugs, let's define what vintage area rugs are. Our vintage area rugs are an excellent addition to any interior decor, as it uses inspiration from other intricate patterns. However, as these patterns are only relative to its design, the material is far from worn-out. While only re-imagined into a faded out version of a timeless pattern, vintage area rugs retain all the benefits of an area rug - that assure the material holds up with its unique design. Typical vintage area rugs designs are as follows:

  • Traditional pattern with faded colors
  • Contemporary designs with muted colors
  • Any worn-out or unsaturated colors

While vintage mainly refers to the color saturation, it's essential to note these area rugs can sub-categorize into another area rugs category, such as the common traditional area rugs.

Choosing Vintage Area Rugs

As with any area rugs' style, the choice to select a vintage area rug is ultimately up to your preference. While we recommend choosing a vintage area rug based on your room's theme, a style is worth a thousand words. Where the vintage design doesn't demand the focal point of the room, opportunities to choose a vintage area rug are as follows:

  • Great pattern from another style, but worn in color
  • Accenting other fixtures in the room
  • Vintage design rebuilt with new materials.

While doubling in another category but not as bold, our vintage area rugs are versatile in their placement. While there is a wide selection of vintage rugs, let's take a look at some of the most popular.
