While mid century style loves a large, clean floor, the perfect area rug is a great way to infuse your room with color, texture and pattern. It can be a bold statement for a neutral room or a nice accompaniment for some of your funkier pieces you don’t want to upstage. We’ve pooled together our favorite rugs of all colors, sizes and styles to outfit your mid century ranch with the perfect, floor-warming base.
Need a rug in a room that has a lot of light? Blue, like this Ashland Light Blue Area Rug, keeps the space feeling cool and is less likely to fade.
Tessalated geometrics never go out of style, especially in the orange and neutral colors of this Klein Orange/Red Area Rug by Jill Rosenwald. Pair with your favorite wood-legged furniture pieces and don’t forget the brass accents!
If you’re looking for big and bold patterns, this blue shag rug is just what you need. The pattern works best unobstructed and the shag is nice on your feet, so try it in a large space in your bedroom!
