10 Plush Rugs Perfect For Cozy Season
When it comes to decorating, there's one piece that's always the hardest to decide on: an area rug. These can easily change the feel of any room, so getting the right one is important. Right now, we're obsessing over soft and cozy options that instantly make any space feel like home, especially for the fall and winter seasons.
When shopping for rugs, there are five things to keep in mind: softness, quality (no shedding, please), style, price point, and whether or not it adds that coziness and comfort to our space. If you've struggled to find options that check all those boxes, you no longer have to sacrifice style for comfort or vice versa. From neutral choices that look like clouds to uniquely designed picks that will make a statement, we've got you covered.
Ahead, we rounded up some fail-safe area rugs that meet our criteria and will add texture and warmth to your space. Whether you're looking for a high-quality piece for your bedroom or wanting something that will make your living space feel much more inviting, these are the pieces for you. Plus, there are a bunch of smaller options or runner rugs that can add a dash of coziness to even the smallest areas of the home. Take a look and find your match.
