Get the look of vintage rugs on a budget! I’ve rounded up 26 rugs that add casual, cool interest to any room.
It’s no design secret that swapping out the rug in a room has the power to transform an entire space. A bold patterned rug or a neutral, washed rug can inject fun + whimsy or casual + cool, respectively. Our preference leans towards the latter, and throughout our home, we have a combination of true vintage rugs (scored after hours, days, weeks, even months of scouring secondhand sites), as well as faux vintage. I’ve talked All About Rugs on the blog over the last decade, and I’ve rounded up some of our guides below:
Rugs, Rugs, Rugs
Today, I’m rounding up the faux vintage rugs that caught my eye! While I actually enjoy doing a deep dive on Etsy, Facebook Marketplace and Ebay for a great vintage rug, I also know it requires time, patience and a larger budget. That said, vintage replicas are readily available (more than ever!), and have come a long way in looks, style and durability.
Whether you’re buying the real deal or a replica, I recommend always using a rug pad. These rug pads are our go-to! A quality rug pad will not only protect your floors and prevent rug slippage, but they’ll extend the life of your rug while providing cushion.

Now, on to the rugs! I couldn’t resist including our snug rug (#12 – it’s SO SOFT), #19 is in our dining room, and #10 is machine washable! Many of these rugs are well under $400 for an 8′ x 10′, and with the proper care (see: rug pads, above!) they’ll last for years to come while playing the supporting role in your home.
