5 Rugs from a Global Perspective

Posted by LOFT Home on

It’s true that a classy, traditional Persian rug will never go out of style. But you can give your home some modern, international flair without breaking the bank on an antique from the 1,001 Nights era. At LOFT Home, we absolutely love supporting global communities and international artisans, especially when it comes to our eclectic collection of classic and contemporary rugs. From New Zealand to Cuba and back again, these rugs turn your home into a permanent staycation destination.


Dynamic contemporary designer Candice Olson has provided us with this whimsical graphic taupe-and-mushroom rug, hand-tufted in India of 100% New Zealand wool. A statement piece with both international charm and the touch of a unique designer, this 8x11 rug is a standout addition to any home looking for a fresh, modern boost!


An indoor/outdoor rug that pairs rustic earth-tones with a playful, geometric pattern, this rug is crafted in Belgium and is machine-woven of 100% Polypropylene. At $595, it’s a budget-friendly, versatile option that offers that same global appeal.

The Banshee Collection - Hakim

“Banshee” is an appropriately evocative name for this collection of rugs! Hand tufted of 100% New Zealand wool, the hard-twist, multi-colored yarns and viscose accents of this piece conjure up images of a dark fairytale forest. It’s modern art for your living room floor - a scene-stealer if there ever was one!

The En Casa Collection - Dolores and Efrem

We’re thrilled to feature the work of Cuban-born, Queens, New York-raised contemporary designer Luli Sanchez. Owning a rug from her En Casa collection is like hanging a piece of internationally renowned artwork on your wall. These rugs capture that same organic, moody, yet optimistic vibe as her painterly pursuits. The flatweave Dolores and hand-tufted Efrem are both stunning additions to any home craving a burst of whimsical Cuban flavor.

A rug that’s been crafted overseas or designed by an international artist is a great way to add some “global perspective” to your home decor! Not only does it give your space a certain worldly flair, but purchasing one of these rugs is also a wonderful way to support the international communities that create them and supply the high-quality materials! We’re proud to promote this global community of artisans and designers.

This is just a small sampling of all the rugs we have to offer at LOFT Home - in a variety of price ranges and styles. Take a look at the full selection of rugs here on our website!
