Black & White Rug Roundup

By Kate Riley January 28, 2019

Thanks for the love on the office tour last week. Several of you wrote to me about the black and white rug, how did I like it? Where did I get it?


Here’s a closer look, it’s a black and white pattern printed on an ivory background with tiny silver threads woven into it. The silver threads are hardly noticeable in pictures or in the afternoon, but during the day in natural light the silver flecks add just a touch of sparkle, I love that.


I’ve only had it for a month but so far so good. It’s thin but perfect for my space in a 5×8’ size. I don’t like to spend a lot on rugs because I find I want to swap them out after a year or two, either because they get dirty or because I get tired of the look.

I can’t imagine getting tired of this one though, I love simple geometric black and white rugs, they work in SO.MANY.SPACES so here’s a bunch more to choose from.


aztec diamond / cripe handwoven

black stripe (also in reverse white) / nuloom vasiliki


torres kilim / vista

damask woven  / ashler tassel

moroccan fringe / diamond tassel

 moroccan cotton shag / tribal crosshatch

plush moroccan / black boho

southwest / diamond pinstripes


edie / hand woven finnel

tribal bands / woven emerson



  1. I can’t help but notice that you never told us where you found yours, and none of the ones you’ve linked are the same rug…. please share your source!! :)

  2. PS… Forgot to add – these are all beautiful and spark a lot of inspiration!! Thanks for the post!

  3. These are all beautiful! (And I saw the link!) :) You do have great taste and a great eye, Kate.

  4. Great post. Thank you! I’m forever looking for the right black and white rug since the one my designer got me was ruined in the ongoing renovations. Argh! Of course, it’s no longer available. I’ve learned, after too many painful misses, if you see it and love it, GET it — these things seem to be fleeting!
