What are traditional rugs?
Traditional rugs are available in range of designs, fabrics and colours and bring warmth, add colour, and layer texture within a home. Carpet Court’s range of traditional rugs have been created by skilled craftsman from countries like Turkey, Belgium, India and China. These beautiful floor rugs bring a timeless sense of culture from faraway places, providing statement pieces of interest, warmth and original style.
The beauty of a traditional rug is borne out of the talented work of skilled artisans. Rewind hundreds of years to vibrant medieval cities bustling with thriving marketplaces beneath sapphire skies and a scorching sun. This sets the scene to create beautiful rugs with natural textiles, handcrafted in traditional patterns, medallion designs and earthy colours.
Top 2022 traditional style rugs
Floor rugs bring comfort, warmth and style to any interior space. But they also need to be durable and soft underfoot. Popular styles for 2022 include:

- Vintage and faded: Weaving modern with authentic, the Evoke range is made in Turkey, and power loomed from 100% heat set polypropylene. With its non-shed pile, this range is popular because it’s perfect for a variety of interior spaces – available in a vast range of sizes in different shapes, as a rectangle, a round rug, or a narrow hallway runner rug.
- Understated: Neutral colours and classic design rugs never date and never go out of fashion – especially when they’re constructed to last. The Skandi Natural range is hand loomed in India by expert artisans. With a hand knotted construction this classic rug is reversible, easy to vacuum, and perfect for families and high-traffic areas, available in a range of neutral colours from black, as a grey rug, and white.

What designs and colours can I find in your traditional rugs range?
Whatever the tradition, at Carpet Court we have a rug to tell your story.

The Skandi Loop range is hand loomed in India, made from natural wool fibres, available in traditional blue or natural tones. The Travertine range of floor rugs is soft underfoot with a viscose/wool construction, available in marble, pewter and buff – a stylish foundation for any interior space.

Classic designs you can’t go past
From neutral shades to geometric modern rugs and faded patterns, our range of classic designs cater to all interior styles and personal taste. Our extensive range of traditional rugs brings warmth and comfort to every room and can make a statement or subtly enhance a living room, entrance hall, bedrooms and dining room areas. Our classic traditional rugs are favourites across homes in Australia for all types of interior spaces to enhance and define.
Vintage feel and decor with our range of traditional rugs
Antique, vintage, retro…these are all styles that smack of a time gone by. But even if an interior décor item isn’t old (true vintage), it can have an old-style retro feel. Many interior styles mix up modern lines and retro pieces to layer texture and add interest to a space. If you’re looking to create a vintage feel for your home décor, a retro or vintage rug can define an interior space or area as a foundational layer. Some of our vintage style traditional rugs include the Evoke and Kendra ranges. Conversely, a contemporary rug — from a neutral beige rug or cream rug to vibrant rust rug or red rug — can be a blank canvas foundational layer for vibrant and eclectic vintage furniture and wall art.
How to find the right size for your room
The starting point in finding the right size for your room is to measure your room. Then any floor rug smaller than those dimensions can work because when it comes to floor rugs, size does matter and not just because bigger is better. Although bigger is better!
For living rooms, choose a floor rug that extends under sofas and furniture, to include side tables and coffee tables. For a dining room, a large floor rug that doesn’t hook under dining chairs is essential, and to also define the dining space, especially in open plan homes. Let your dining area floor rug extend under the buffet table, or at least include it. For bedrooms, a floor rug can fit neatly close to the side of the bed to occupy all of the open space for a warm and comfortable wake-up welcome. For kids rugs, whether for bedrooms or a playroom, consider durability and stain resistance — and opt for darker shades like navy blue or a busy floral rug design rather than a lighter beige rug which will be harder to hide scuffs and marks. For maximum impact, a floor rug can extend the full size of any room and make a tasteful impact. For entrance halls, a round floor rug invites guest in. And for passages and narrow hallways, a narrow runner softens footsteps and adds warmth.

How to choose the best traditional rug? Choosing the right design and style to suit your space.
A floor rug can either be a statement piece to build your décor around, or a complementary piece as a base to enhance other eye-catching pieces in the room.
Traditional rugs can do either. A rich multi-colour rug style with patterns or a medallion rug design can create interest in an otherwise neutral space. Alternatively, you can choose a floor rug that is understated and doesn’t compete with other bolder pieces of furniture or wall art.
Whatever colour palette or design you choose for a floor rug, you need to consider your home environment to determine which type of fibre is best. In a room which receives a lot of direct sunlight, a synthetic fibre can offer excellent fade-resistant properties. In active family homes polypropylene is a hardwearing, easy-care textile which can withstand the rigours of family life. In a formal setting pure wool rugs offer a luxurious feel along with excellent insulating properties. There are also outdoor rugs specifically manufactured to handle an outdoor space, crafted to last and to also look beautiful. Jute rugs are a popular choice to brighten up interior spaces made from natural organic fibres.
Take all factors into account when choosing the best traditional rug for your home. If in doubt, speak to one of our Carpet Court experts.
What are Oriental rugs?
Understanding the ins and outs and origins of rugs can be a bit confusing. When shopping for floor rugs, it’s common to ask questions around the differences between Persian rugs and Oriental rugs, and a rug’s origin. In general, Oriental rugs are carpets from Turkey and Iran, and countries in Asia including India, China, Russia, Pakistan and Tibet. Although also falling under the blanket cover of Oriental rugs, Persian rugs are specifically made in Iran – the craft of hand weaving rugs was invented in Iran (previously known as Persia). There are also rich-in-tradition heirloom Afghan rugs, which are from Afghanistan. True Oriental rugs are hand woven and knotted, generally made from wool but also can be made from silk and bamboo.
Persian rugs to complement your room
Persian rugs and all types of traditional rugs are a popular choice to complement any room. More ornate Persian rugs are widely chosen to bring rich texture and a sense of history to any interior space – often placed in dining rooms, living rooms as well as entrance halls and hallways. Other traditional rugs are also popular to bring texture and to define interior spaces.
