The Top Six Rug Trends Taking The Floor In 2022


Revving up the interiors especially when the new year is around is a tough ask, lets help you to select the right kind of rugs for your interiors.

Choosing history over fashion and trends.

Our growing aversion to fast fashion and a move to more sustainable, eco-conscious choices are translating through to interiors. There’s a marked move away from quick wins and cheap, mass-produced homewares to furnishing and decorating our homes with timeless pieces that tell a story and reflect a homeowners personal interests. People are therefore embracing vintage pieces of furniture and textiles to make a home unique. That’s why distressed rugs are high on the agenda for 2022. Lilla’s distressed rugs are all 100% genuine Persian hand-knotted rugs. They have a story to tell too as they are all listed as vintage (meaning they are around 30-99 years old). The subtle colours and slightly worn piles enable you to bring the character of a Persian rug to your space, in a soft and classy way.


Kitchen comforts

2021 made homeowners reassess their living spaces and with kitchens and kitchen dining spaces being the heart of the home, it was one of the first rooms people wanted to decorate and transform. Kitchens have fast become a place where we crave comfort. An oversized rug or runner in a kitchen can add cushioning underfoot, warmth and interest. They also become a key talking point for guests. Rich, earthy colours like reds, burgundy’s and Mulberry full of traditional patterns create that all-important warm and inviting harmony set against a white, beige or grey contemporary kitchen. Earthy tones in beige, olive or creams create a more grounded feel for a kitchen space that’s cooler or dark in tone . Adding a rug in a kitchen is a small change that can make a lifetime of difference.

Picture perfect gallery rugs 

Every space needs that one focal point which gives it a personality that you simply cannot miss. Gallery rugs are distinct and unique, bridging the gap between room size rugs and the long and narrow runners. They offer a cool and easy way to add pattern to your interior without altering its style drastically. Gallery rugs are ideally suited for wider halls and foyers that typically occur between rooms. Because of their unconventional size (normally 5-7 feet wide and 14 feet long), they are considered special and rare compared to other rug formats. Remember to select complementary pieces in your design. Avoid making the space look too small; the rug shouldn’t touch the wall on any side. The general rule of thumb is to keep at least eighteen inches between the edge of your carpet and the wall.

Shape and softness 

Curves as a design aesthetic helps to create flow in a home and ties in with our increased desire for cosy, safe, and soft sanctuaries and this will be at the helm of many trends for Spring/Summer 2022. Interior settings and furniture with rounded contours promote higher levels of relaxation compared to angular contours. What will be key is to ensure there is a perfect blend, we need our interiors to lift us up with positivity or calm us with a grounded caccooning feeling. So, if you have a space with clean lines and lots of straight edged borders and one tone painted walls, you may wish to complement this with circular or curved accents in terms of furniture, textiles and rugs. Curved alcoves painted in dark colours and set against pastel or soft corals is also likely to rise in popularity.

Overdyed rugs 

An innovative way of recycling and reusing older interior items is the overdyed trend. Overdyed rugs can be repurposed or new rugs treated with a unique process. The result is an antique look transformed into a modern, intriguing piece.At Lilla Rugs, we source Persian Kerman rugs from their origin, supporting the weavers in their home towns to ensure each piece is authentic and in the best possible condition to withstand the overdying process. Once our neutralization process is complete, we curate the one of a kind pieces into our Overdyed collection.To bring this trend into your space with ease, homeowners should consider each overdyed rug as a unique work of contemporary art, which can truly enhance a room or thoroughfare. Overdyed rugs in muted colour palettes can stand out without being disturbing, or opt for a vividly-coloured overdyed rug to create a perfect focal point, a centrepiece that at once stands and brings together its surroundings.



Whether you’re a city-dweller or you live in the ‘burbs, a patio can simply become a utopia when you need a place to escape to in the Spring and Summer. A patio should be a logical continuation of the rest of your house and feel like an extension of your design approach, not just an afterthought. It provides a space to soak up the sunshine and gather with friends, dine al fresco, or simply curl up with a book. Once you’ve powerwashed or painted your stone and added coloured oversized pots, a finishing touch to your outside patio area would be to bring in a cosy patterned rug. An outdoor rug serves the same purpose as an indoor area rug: it pulls your seating area together into a single, unified space that’s inviting and comfortable. Place an outdoor rug on your patio to add texture and warmth. If exposed to the elements, you’ll want to choose a flat-weave rug that’s easy to move and clean – adding a patterned Kilim rug can quickly elevate your look.Even if you don’t have a lot of space to work with outside, an oversized rug can make your small patio feel bigger.
