Is Your Favourite Rug Trend Ready to Retire?

Sacha Strebe

When it comes to transformative décor, there’s one thing we can always rely on: the rug. This humble floor piece provides the stylish foundation for any interior to build upon and layer around. It can be the hero and take center stage or resume the understudy role and seamlessly blend the other showstopping pieces together. Of the hundreds (nay thousands) of rugs we come across at MyDomaine HQ, there’s one trend that stands out above all else—the beautiful handwoven tribal varieties of Morocco, Turkey, and Persia: the Moroccan rug.

These one-of-a-kind treasures are highly sought after and continue their popular reign across all interior styles. From the traditional to the contemporary, these statement rugs are just as at home in the bathroom or kitchen as they are in the living room. Why? Caitlin Taffs of A Day Adorn says it’s the tale woven into them that makes them so covetable. “Each weaver tells a story,” she explains. “The patterns and symbols you see all have individual meaning. Motherhood and childbirth are common themes. You can be guaranteed that no two will be exactly alike. They are basically collector’s items. As if that isn’t cool!” And even Emily Henderson says that these rugs are never going out of style, provided you pick the right one. So if you haven’t purchased one yet or you’re in the market to buy another, we’ve found the perfect pieces (along with some major inspiration) that are guaranteed to spruce up your home.
