Rugs. Our rug collection will floor you.

Rugs connect us to our space. They complete not only the room, but the way you feel in it. From rich, plush handloomed New Zealand wools, to natural handwoven fibers, to durable smart new synthetics, the Crate and Barrel rug collection is created with the highest quality materials and construction methods. The result is a sophisticated and livable group of rugs featuring over 40 exclusive designs.

Wool Rugs

Wool Rugs There’s nothing like the softness, warmth and color a handwoven or hand–tufted wool rug can bring to a room. Our collection features modern neutrals, traditional designs, artistic graphics and sculpted dimensionals in plush 100% wool. The upkeep is modern and minimal, too. Wool is naturally stain–resistant thanks to natural oils that prevent dirt from adhering to the yarn. And because wool’s a durable fiber that springs back, it’s a practical choice for high-traffic areas.

Construction

There are four types of wool rug construction. A rug pad is recommended for all wool rugs. If the intended use is over carpeting, a multi-purpose rug pad is recommended.

Hand-knotted

In a technique that has been handed down from generation to generation, yarn is wrapped and then knotted around each warp thread. Each yarn is then hand–cut and hand-tamped to form a tightly constructed pile. This time and attention to detail by expert craftsmen creates a beautiful rug that has a lasting value and presence.

Handloomed

A variety of looks and textures, from luxurious shag rugs to versatile, cotton rag rugs are achieved with the use of a loom. A combination of colors and yarn thicknesses are intricately handwoven to create contemporary or traditional designs. Each step of construction is hand-finished by skilled artisans.

Hand-tufted

With the aid of a tufting tool, yarn is passed through a frame–stretched fabric backing on which a pattern has been drawn. Both cut or looped piles are achieved through this process. Tufted rugs are backed with latex for stability, then with fabric for a finished look. Skilled tradesmen complete each stage of the process.

Power-loomed

An efficient machine–made way to loom a variety of textures at a value. Power-loomed rugs are usually synthetic or fiber and can include cut piles, rib patterns and bouclè weaves.

Care

Vacuum regularly. For the first two to three months, additional vacuuming may be necessary to reduce the normal shedding that occurs. Blot spills immediately with a clean, absorbent white cloth. Rugs should not be saturated with cleaning solvents or scrubbed excessively. We suggest using products designed specifically for wool or dry extraction powders such as Host. For best results, periodic professional cleaning is recommended. Shag rugs will continue to shed their entire life. Loose tufts should be cut, not pulled. Rotate the rug periodically to help reduce uneven wear. Avoid placing rugs in direct sunlight to prevent fading over time. A rug pad is recommended for all rugs. If the intended use is over carpeting, our EasyHold Rug Pad or Multi-Purpose Rug Pad is recommended.

Natural Fiber Rugs

Natural Fiber Rugs Our natural fiber rugs bring a modern organic look and neutral texture to any setting. They’re a natural choice for adding a casual look to classic living and family rooms, or a relaxed kickback feel to the weekend cottage. Our collection is woven in interesting patterns by craftsmen whose skills have been handed down for generations.

Construction

Our fiber rugs are handwoven or loomed from a variety of all-natural plants and grasses such as abaca, jute and sisal. For a clean modern finish, we may bind the edges with a decorative cotton, linen or polyester tape. Many of our natural fiber rugs are backed with latex for cushioning, stability, and to extend the life of the rug.

Care

Vacuum regularly. Blot spills immediately with a clean, absorbent white cloth. Spot clean with a dry extraction powder such as Host. For best results, professional dry extraction cleaning is recommended. Natural fibers are quite absorbent and can shrink and expand with changes in humidity. They are intended for indoor use only and are not recommended for use in damp or humid areas such as bathrooms. Keep out of direct sunlight to help prevent fading. Rotate the rug periodically to help reduce uneven wear. A rug pad is recommended under any non-backed fiber rug. If the intended use is over carpeting, our EasyHold Rug Pad or Multi–Purpose Rug Pad is recommended.

Cotton Rugs

Cotton Rugs Easy-care cotton rugs offer a quick, inexpensive way to change the look of any room. In an entryway, by a kitchen sink, on a bathroom floor, in the den. They’re so much fun, we introduce new patterns and colors with every season.

Construction

Our soft cotton rugs are handwoven on traditional looms in a variety of flatweave styles, from stripes to solids. Most styles are finished with clean edges, but for added visual interest, some styles feature fringe at the borders.

Care

Most smaller-sized cotton rugs are machine-washable. Larger sizes can be washed in industrial–sized washers or dry–cleaned. Avoid placing cotton rugs in direct sunlight to prevent fading over time. A rug pad is recommended for all cotton rugs. If the intended use is over carpeting, our EasyHold Rug Pad or Multi–Purpose Rug Pad is recommended.

Synthetic Rugs

Synthetic Rugs Our machine–woven, synthetic fiber rugs offer value in a new generation of man-made materials that often mimic the look of both natural fiber and wool rugs, while resisting stains, and wear and tear. While synthetics are extremely durable, colorfast and perfect for high–traffic areas, they’re also priced so you can frequently update rooms with new seasonal color and texture. We also feature a collection of indoor/outdoor polypropylene rugs. Machine–loomed for a tight weave, these synthetics add a sophisticated, interior look to exterior settings—yet are extremely durable and need only to be hosed down. They also make smart choices for the kitchen, mudroom, basement or laundry room

Construction

Synthetic floor coverings are constructed from olefin, polyester, acrylic, nylon or a blend of these fibers. Depending on construction, some styles are backed with latex/cotton or PVC/foam rubber for cushioning, stability, and to extend the life of the rug.

Synthetic fibers are non-porous, making these rugs stain-resistant. A rug pad is recommended for indoor synthetic rugs.

Care

Indoor Rugs

Vacuum regularly. Blot spills immediately with a clean, absorbent white cloth. Spot clean or shampoo with a mild detergent. For best results, periodic professional cleaning is recommended. A rug pad is recommended for indoor synthetic rugs. If the intended use is over carpeting, our EasyHold Rug Pad or Multi-Purpose Rug Pad is recommended.

Indoor/Outdoor Rugs

Wash with a mild detergent and rinse with a garden hose.

Rug Pads

Rug Pads Because rugs wear primarily from the back first, we recommend the use of a pad to lengthen the life of your rug, as well as provide stability and cushioning. We offer three protective options, depending on the construction and use of the rug.

EasyHold Rug Pad

Double-sided for use over both carpeted and hard surface floors, this nonslip pad provides a moderate cushioned base for a variety of rug types. Will not stain, discolor, or leave marks on flooring. Use the polyester felt side over carpeted surfaces; latex side is for use on hard surface floors and floors with radiant heating.

Construction

Polyester and latex. Specially treated to prevent bacteria, mold and mildew. Flame retardant.

Care

Wipe latex side clean with a damp cloth; vacuum fabric side. Trim for exact fit. For indoor use only.

Multi-Purpose Rug Pad

Double–sided for use over both carpeted and hard surface floors, this nonslip pad provides a firm, cushioned base ideal for all rug types, especially hand–tufted and hand–knotted wool rugs. Thicker pad hides irregularities in stone and tile floors, reduces puckering around furniture legs, insulates noise and cold, and makes vacuuming more efficient. Use the polyester felt side over carpeted surfaces; latex side is for use on hard surface floors and floors with radiant heating.

Construction

Polyester and latex. Specially treated to prevent bacteria, mold and mildew. Flame retardant.

Eco Plus Rug Pad

An eco–friendly foundation designed for hard surface floors. Produced with 100% plant–based oils, reducing the carbon footprint. Will not discolor or leave marks on flooring. Pads provide premium cushioning, maximum nonslip protection, reduce wear and make vacuuming more effective through proper air flow that pulls dirt particles away from the rug backing.

Cleaning Kit

We recommend the all-natural Host Dry Carpet Cleaning kit for spot cleaning and for dry extraction cleaning of our fiber, cotton and wool rugs (available at select stores and online).
