Yesterday was the launch of our new Polly rug collection with Loloi! The support has been overwhelming and we’re so excited to finally share this labor of love with you all. The collection was inspired from a need in the market–something to mix and match with vintage rugs, or vintage-inspired rugs like our first collections with Loloi. From the very start, this Polly collection was designed to compliment and pair seamlessly with our Jules, Rosemarie, and Alice collections. If you have an open floor-plan, and/or plan on having multiple rugs on the same floor (and you definitely should), this is your go-to resource for rug pairings!

Rule of Thumb!

I hope the key takeaway here is to have fun with mixing patterns. One rule of thumb is to be mindful of how each of the rugs connect from room to room. For example, we now have a Polly rug in our living room, and we styled one in our bedroom, but I don’t know that it’s staying.  They are neighboring rooms and I’d love to see some contrast. I think it would be nice to have a large vintage rug under our bed–something with more of an intricate pattern, to balance out the geometric Polly rug in the living room. The same applies to walls! If you have a patterned wallpaper in one room, then the walls in the neighboring rooms could be either painted or a more simple wallpaper. It’s all about balance! I also pay attention to colors and undertones so that rugs flow from one room to another just like you would want a room to.

 

Rug Pairings

We put together 11 different pairings below, but the combinations are infinite!! If you already have a rug of ours, maybe start with finding it on here and see what else would pair nicely with it. Also, refer to our rug size guide to make sure you’re getting the right dimensions for your space! Buying a too-small rug is a common mistake you don’t want to make! The very first pairing below you can see above in real spaces in our homes!

Polly Slate Ivory + Jules Lagoon Brick + Polly Antique Mist

Polly Berry Natural + Jules Merlot + Alice Cream Charcoal

Polly Beige Tobacco + Rosemarie Ivory Natural + Polly Straw Ivory

Polly Blue Sand + Rosemarie Sand Lagoon + Polly Ivory Natural

Polly Black Ivory + Jules Terracotta Multi + Polly Berry Natural

Polly Antique Mist + Jules Denim Spice + Polly Slate Ivory

Polly Straw Ivory + Rosemarie Oatmeal Lavender + Rosemarie Graphite

Polly Slate Ivory + Jules Tangerine Mist + Polly Black Ivory

Polly Antique Mist + Jules Antique Sky + Polly Ivory Natural

Polly Ivory Natural + Rosemarie Sage Blush + Polly Tobacco Cream

Alice Cream Charcoal + Polly Black Ivory + Alice Cream Charcoal

 

I can’t wait to see these pairings in your homes!

    Thank you for this post! I just moved into a tudor style house that has a very large entryway, a formal living room, and formal dining room that are all open to one another. I’ve been struggling to figure out how to do 3 rugs that are different but cohesive. This post is so helpful!

  2. Beth says:

    The new rugs are gorgeous! No pairings with Jules Natural/Ocean? I’m hoping it will work well with Polly Antique Mist. Thank you!

  3. Marie says:

    Do you think the pile of the Polly rugs would work well as stair runners?

    • They are REALLY quite thick, but when I think back to the stair runners in my old house–they were thick as well so it might just work!! Definitely gonna need to put some muscle into it. :)

    I’ve been waiting for the perfect replacement rug for our dining room. We have a beautiful vintage rug in our living room (but very red with blue) and I just couldn’t find the right fit for a long time. This post helps me make the decision that the Checkered Handmade Tufted Antique/Mist Area Rug is the best fit. Thank you <3
