The 6 Best Geometric Area Rugs

Adding a rug to your space is an easy way to extend your interior design style off the walls and onto the floor. But adding a solid rug isn’t always a solid idea. When your decor calls for additional visual texture, a bold pattern, or just something funky, look no further than geometric area rugs.


Adding a rug to your space is an easy way to extend your interior design style off the walls and onto the floor. But adding a solid rug isn’t always a solid idea. When your decor calls for additional visual texture, a bold pattern, or just something funky, look no further than geometric area rugs. 

Geometric area rugs feature a pattern based on a shape. While that may seem simple enough, the variations available range from the ultra modern to ancient designs that feel as fresh today as they did thousands of years ago. We have collected six of our best geometric area rugs here, along with some tips on how to style them. 

1. Aruba Polypropylene Rug

Whether you consider this geometric area rug to have a diamond pattern repeating in a straight line or a rhombus pattern repeating diagonally, it will add a fun bit of pizazz to your space. Savvy rug shoppers will notice that within each diamond/rhombus are an additional two diamonds/rhombi. Counting the darker “negative space” between the lighter shapes you get a total of six repeating shapes, all for one low price!

The Aruba Polypropylene rug is suitable for any room in your home as well as outdoor spaces. This rug’s synthetic fibers allow it to stand up to heavy foot traffic and any weather conditions the great outdoors cares to send its way—yes, you can even leave it outside all winter

2. Boca Polypropylene Rug

The Boca Polypropylene in Burnt Umber is as much fun as you can have with a rug. Its geometricity brings one thing to the table more than any other rug sold here or elsewhere: 1970s party vibes. When purchased in Burnt Umber, those little dancing guys and the gold and brown color palette say very confidently “this room is for parties.” A mission statement as clear as that makes this rug ideal for basement bars, rumpus rooms, and the bachelor pads of wild and crazy guys. 

However, a fun times geometric area rug does not require a party to create a party-like atmosphere. Bring this rug’s whimsical pattern to your living room or kitchen for a cheerful splash of visual interest. Many other color options are available for this rug as well, but those may lose that special vintage party charm.

3. Camila Wool Rug

Of all the options for interior design styles, it doesn’t get much cooler than Mid-Century Moder. And one central theme of MCM is an emphasis on geometric patterns. One of the quickest ways to add a splash of geometry to your MCM design is with a geometric area rug. 

That’s where the Camila Wool rug comes in: it’s a rug that delivers on geometric patterns while not being overly busy. Considering another tenant of MCM style is spareness, the light business and relatively muted color of this rug can serve as a style-appropriate centerpiece. And it ticks one more MCM must-have: its wool fibers give it a soft, organic texture.

4. Felipe Polypropylene Rug

If this geometric area rug’s pattern has a familiar feel, don’t be surprised. The pattern featured on our Felipe Polypropylene rug is literally ancient: this geometric design is known as the Greek Key pattern, or the meander pattern, and it has been used as a decorative motif for thousands of years. But the Greeks weren’t the only ones to discover this fun pattern: the Mayans, the ancient Chinese, and the Egyptians all incorporated a version of it into their artwork. 

Its storied lineage means this geometric area rug will fit right in with any design style, from traditional to modern. And for a more intricate take on the classic Greek key pattern, consider the Athens Sisal rug

5. Palm Island Polysilk Rug

The irregular shapes that form the pattern on our Palm Island Polysilk rug make this one of the most interesting and unusual rugs we offer. The shape that dominates the pattern on this geometric area rug is as mysterious as it is beautiful. 

The pattern and mystique of this rug mean a lot is going on both visually and mentally—which makes it a perfect choice if you are after a maximalist interior design look. When purchased in the color option Breeze, as seen here, this rug would also amplify the beachy feel of your coastal decor. On top of all that, the durability of the synthetic polysilk fibers means this is a rug that will delight you and your visitors alike for years to come.

6. Moroccan Trellis Wool Rug

One critique of area rugs that are styled with a geometric pattern is that they are too rigid. All those sharp corners and straight lines can start to feel stiff and formal. If you want your rug to accentuate a shabbier, boho interior design, the Moroccan Trellis wool rug is an ideal choice. The irregular diamonds that crisscross this rug are reminiscent of hand-drawn chalk lines, which adds a rough but intentional feel to your space. 

This area rug’s wool fibers make it exceptionally soft, adding to the comfy, lived-in boho aesthetic. And, unlike other natural fiber rugs, this rug’s natural wool fibers are woven into a design that creates a geometric pattern in a separate color from the rest of the rug.
