18 On Trend (& On Budget) Rugs — PLUS Wayfair Black Friday Deals!

While we’re using Black Friday & Cyber Week sales to check off (and hopefully complete) our Christmas lists, it’s also one of the best times of the year to switch the focus back to our homes. It’s easy to overlook since all we need to do and buy for others tends to be priority, but pivoting to include our home wishlist items (and necessities!) can help us save a lot. And, our 2024 selves will be thanking our end-of-2023 selves. One of the best places and times to score pieces you’ve had on your home list is during the Wayfair Black Friday Sale (home deals up to 80% off plus free sitewide shipping) and you’re in luck because… it’s happening now!

From bigger, central pieces like our powder room vanity (and faucet) and our primary bathroom tub, to accent items like the cane back chair in our conversation room (on closeout deal right now for an AMAZING deal, BTW) and the sherpa storage bench at the foot of our bed, SO much of our home furnishings are made up of Wayfair deals I’ve scored during their big sales.

And among the best deals, time and again, year after year… the rugs. And, I am loving the look that’s growing in popularity (again) — classic, timeless, sophisticated… Even a casual space can get a big dose of personality with a smart rug.

By now, I’m sure you’ve heard of “Coastal Grandmother” aesthetic, right? What about “Parisian Aunt?” Or the latest, “Country Club Grandpa”? You can browse all rugs (up to 80% off right now!) and filter by your own variables HERE, but below, you’ll find some of my top favorites to capitalize on some of the chicest looks right now.

*Links for all rugs can be found below each graphic.

One of my favorite kitchen runners, with its window pane pattern, fits the Grandpa aesthetic, and like my runner, most all rugs come in a BUNCH of sizes (many in multiple color-ways, too).

And our regular kitchen runner is such a great neutral and is a master at blending both warm and cool tones, grays, browns, etc. It’s washable (making it an extra awesome kitchen runner!) and has a non-slip back.

Eliza’s rug is pretty in plum and deep pink tones, but it’s totally giving “Parisian Aunt” and is such a fun way to bring a little femininity into a space — even if that’s the only color present.

Also in Eliza’s domain, THIS nubby wool rug is gorgeous in person. It also comes in all cream (HERE) which I love.

Another favorite rug (both mine and yours) was our blue medallion rug in our former dining room. It fits the coastal grandmother motif, but spans so many other styles.

The rug in our entry is one of my FAVORITES, especially for high traffic areas because not only does it conceal dirt well, but the backing is rubberized and stays put without a rug pad. Also, my favorite HUGE vase has earned its permanent spot right here and while it was more of an investment, I use it year-round as permanent decor. It’s beautiful, HEAVY, and timeless.

And I actually have that vase in a different shape and size in the breakfast nook, also part of my permanent decor (HERE).

And another favorite big vase that’s big enough for the floor/heart is THIS concrete one. I love keeping some greenery in my vases and jars, but they also look fabulous, even empty.

This accent table has been with us for years now, is easy to mix with other furnishings, and is a Black Friday Deal HERE.

One of my favorite finds over the years during a Wayfair sale are THESE matted frames, which make for the prettiest gallery walls for a budget price. They come in multiple finishes and sizes HERE.

I even have them as a small trio gallery in the guest bedroom.

Black Friday is a fantastic time to source some of those “finishing” touches in your spaces — like THIS window pane accent chair and my sherpa storage bench at the foot of my bed.

And tile is HUGE for free shipping. I didn’t realize Wayfair carried my tile when I initially ordered it and had to pay a TON in freight charges from a different company. That company also didn’t take back any of my extras. Lesson learned.
