As our devoted fans know, we love, love, love rugs over here at World Market. Our buyers travel the world and back to look for the most eclectic and unique rugs, and they always return to our Oakland headquarters with the most eye-catching pieces that seem to trump the previous years’ finds.
This year was no different. As Amy, our rug buyer, unrolled sample after sample, we collectively “Oooh’d” and “Ahhh’d” as we saw each piece for our new Desert Caravan Rugs collection. Although the rugs didn’t make it to the cover of the collection’s catalog, we thought we’d highlight a few of our faves from the shoot.
Desert Caravan Rugs:
1 Kaia Flatweave Wool Area Rug. Eye-catching in three unique and complementary colorways, the Kaia Flatweave features our exclusive southwestern design and on-trend tassels, which lend a playful look to a space while tying the room together visually.
2 Ameline Kilim Bordered Flokati Area Rug. Flokati rugs have long been a World Market customer favorite, but this rug takes its style up a notch with its exquisite Kilim design borders. It’s perfect for a space that conjures up far-flung countries and reflects the whims and desires of a world traveler.
3 Ruby Shag Area Rug. Once you sink your toes into this shag rug, you won’t want to step off. The rug evokes warmth, comfort and romance, and features an exclusive design for World Market. It’s a great decor addition for a room that is feeling a little stark or staid—a perfect pick-me-up to make a room feel more fresh and lived in.
4 Desarae Kilim Wool Area Rug. Hand crafted, check. One-of-a-kind, check. Just the right mix of neutrals with pops of embellishment and color, check. This wool rug is a keeper.
5 Rose Moroccan Shag Area Rug. Upon first sight, this rug conjures up the colors of harissa, a spicy North African sauce and condiment. Handwoven of natural 100% wool yarn, the rug features our exclusive multicolor diamond design.
