Is it just me or does finding the perfect rug feel like a Catch-22? It doesn’t matter if it’s jute, shag, or handwoven: A great rug does make a beautiful finishing touch in any room, but sometimes, it’s truly mandatory.
Take my new apartment, for example. It’s actually written into our lease that approximately 80 percent of the floors will be covered in rugs. The problem is, rugs can be really expensive—sometimes they even creep well into the quadruple digits. Since we needed to cover the kitchen, hallway, bathroom, living room, bedroom, and dining room, the cost of rugs alone seemed like it would be nothing short of a small fortune.
Or so I thought.
A month ago, I was introduced to a company called Ruggable, which features pretty, trend-driven rugs for an affordable price. I’m talking under $400 for a large, eight foot by 10 foot rug. I’ll be the first one to admit that I was initially skeptical when I heard about Ruggable. That large of a rug for so cheap felt like an urban interior design myth, plush the quality question always comes into play with such budget-friendly options.

However, I decided to take a chance and give Ruggable a try, and it’s official: I’m casually obsessed with this brand.
If Ruggable’s price point doesn’t pique your interest initially, the wide selection of gorgeous rugs certainly will. Simply put, this company has everything from Turkish-inspired rugs, to modern marvels, to versatile solid layers.
My boyfriend and I ultimately selected the Naila rug, which boasts a funky black and white print, and I love how this style gives our living room a delightfully retro flair.
Of course, Ruggable has more to offer than great aesthetics.
Made of polyester with a polyurethane waterproof barrier, Ruggable’s inventory gives you the best bang for your buck. Not only are these rugs hypoallergenic and made without toxins, but they are also surprisingly soft. Oh, and did I mention they’re also machine-washable? Yes, if you spill a glass of Merlot or some spaghetti sauce, you can toss it in the laundry and have a clean rug in no time.
And, as for the cherry atop this home décor sundae, Ruggable has its own rug pads (for an extra fee) that essentially lock into the rug so you won't have to worry about any sudden slippage.
All of that for under $400? I’m sold.
