Shopping for rugs seems like it would be an easy task, but finding just the right rug in your style and price range an be trickier than you'd think. Rugs are often expensive, and if you're into vintage styles or more modern, unique patterns, you might not find what you're looking for at your usual stores. These online stores—including a few Etsy shops!—probably aren't on your radar yet, but they totally kill it in the rug department. If you haven't found the perfect rug for your space yet, definitely try these shops.
At Aelfie, you can buy more than just rugs (everything from bedding to chairs is available on the site), but the brand's rugs are what really shine, with their fun geometric patterns and bright colors.
If you love the look of vintage rugs, Revival Rugs is a great place to shop—you'll find pages and pages of them to choose from, with options in original vintage, overdyed, distressed, kilim, and antique washed styles.
RugsUSA is a huge site for buying affordable rugs online, and it's been around since 1998, but it's one many people are still discovering. If you're new to it, get ready to spend hours browsing their giant selection of rugs in every style imaginable.
When shopping for rugs, you probably aren't thinking about checking Etsy, but shops like HomesteadSeattle are exactly why you should—their handknotted rugs are absolutely stunning.
Another Etsy seller to check out when looking for the perfect rug: rugsxboutique. Their handmade kilim rugs are especially great, but you'll also find indigo rugs, cotton rugs, jute and hemp rugs, and more.
Collectiv Co's selection of rugs may be small, but it's absolutely worth checking out. You'll find some beautiful vintage area rugs on their site, in bold colors and interesting patterns. Plus, you can also find blankets, baskets, poufs, pillows, art, and more on the site, too.

Another small-but-mighty rug selection: The Vintage Rug Shop has multiple beautiful vintage (hence the name!) rugs to choose from, many of them with unique patterns and a gorgeous distressed look.
Collyer's Mansion sells much more than just rugs (their throw pillow selection? Also amazing.) But, their rugs are definitely worth checking out, no matter your price range—they range from affordable to pretty expensive, so there's something for everyone.
