Oval Braided Rugs

Since both their shape and texture are different from the most obvious choices, oval braided rugs are perfect to showcase your attention to detail and creativity when it comes to interior design.

Traditionally, they can be made of yarn, jute, or fabrics like cotton and wool. 

They also offer a ton of decorative possibilities. For example, you could opt for a monochrome or fairly simple braided rug if it'll be surrounded by pieces of furniture in different colors or textures.

On the contrary, if your existing palette is already fairly neutral, you can unleash your creativity with the most colorful patterns and designs.

Thanks to their versatility and wide range of styles, oval rugs with a braided design can work with several décors, too: while this special texture immediately creates a bohemian vibe (especially with the most colorful models), different hues can turn them into a smoother fit for contemporary and traditional rooms, too.

What sizes do oval rugs come in?

Oval rugs come in different sizes, but the most popular are:

  • 3' 3" x 5'
  • 5' x 8'
  • 8' x 10'

The most important thing is to measure the specific area where you're planning on introducing your new rug and allow enough room (around 18") between each of its sides and the rest of your furniture or walls.

How do you use an oval rug?

You can use an oval rug in the middle of your seating area, especially if one side is visibly longer than the other, or underneath a small round dining table to create a balanced feel.

Finally, oval braided rugs can work extremely well at the bottom of a bed or in a longer area in a fairly small room.

Can you put an oval rug under a rectangular table?

Yes, you can decide to put an oval rug under a rectangular table (for example, in your dining room or with the coffee table in your living area) to create a contrasting effect by consciously breaking its symmetry.

Not all oval braided rugs are bright and colorful. In fact, if you already have vibrant furniture with recognizable patterns, it would be much safer to opt for this monochrome neutral model. Thanks to its beautiful ivory finish, this oval braided rug is particularly ideal if you also have darker wooden floors.

It's neutral and versatile, but, while at a first glance it might appear monochrome, it actually hides concentric oval shapes in slightly different hues.

Jute Natural Braided Area Rug

This oval braided rug immediately conveys natural vibes, both because of its neutral light-brown look and the fact that it's made of jute and sisal. This earthy tone makes it a versatile option in bohemian rooms, but it could also work wonders against the white that characterizes shabby chic interiors.
