Chevron and zigzag rugs are a quick and easy way to add geometric symmetry to your Art Deco design. There are lots of rugs to choose from, our top ten picks are below.
Before we jump into our picks, you might be wondering what the difference is between a chevron and a zigzag. We weren't completely sure ourselves. Rather than cover it here, we found an excellent blog that explains the difference.
Item Safavieh Crosby Area Rug
This rug is available in eight different sizes and ten different colours. So, there should be an option to match your needs. They're made from hand-tufted wool, so they will feel great to touch.
Depending on the colour you pick the solid zigzag pattern can be as bold or as subdued as you like. Given these are wool rugs they are excellent value for money. And being wool they will likely shed a few threads when new.
Item Palma Woven Black Rug
This rug is a good option if you need a particularly hard-wearing rug. Made from 100% polypropylene, it's abrasion, mildew and UV resistant. The colours won't face and it's quick-drying too. In fact, it's so tough that you can use it outside.
The rug is also reversible so it's not the end of the world if one side gets damaged. The downside, it doesn't feel as nice as wool underfoot. With six size and five colour options (black, grey, brown, blue and green) there should be a rug that suits your space.
Item Selene Chevron Rug
This rug is another stain and fade-resistant polypropylene rug. It has an attractive chevron pattern to add a bit of geometric symmetry to your Art Deco scheme.
Note that the colours are a bit more subdued than the photo suggests.
Item Millie Modern ZigZag Rug
A different zigzag design this time, with opposite-facing zigzags creating diamond shapes.
As with the previous rug, it's made of polypropylene so it's stain and fade resistant as well as being durable.
The only real downside is that won't feel quite as nice underfoot as wool.
Item Yellow and Grey Chevron Rug
This rug features vivid yellow zigzags. Being nice and bright it will help cheer up an otherwise dreary room.
It's made from 100% polypropylene, so it's tough and stain-resistant. This would be a great rug for a kids bedroom or playroom.
Item Eowyn navy and light blue rug
This wool rug has a bold navy blue and light blue zigzag pattern. It's a powerful pattern that needs careful matching with the rest of your decor. Get the look right and you'll have a great centrepiece for your room.
Handmade from wool, this rug is good value for money.
Item Eternal Rug
This rug is available in a taupe / brown or a much lighter creme colour. Dark opposing zigzags run down this rug with a few highlighted in a lighter colour to add a bit of interest. Its subtle pattern makes it an ideal addition if you have a strong pattern elsewhere in your room.
It's made from 100% polypropylene, so it's tough but won't feel quite as luxurious underfoot as wool. Unlike the polypropylene rug reviewed above, this rug is for indoor use only.
Item Mercy Wool Yellow Rug
A mix of grey and yellow zigzags give this rug a lovely contemporary look. It's made from 100% wool so it will feel great underfoot and is available in a variety of sizes and colours.
You'll need a rug gripper to prevent it from moving around on polished floors and to a lesser extent carpet.
Item Silas Wool Area Rug
This 100% wool rug has a striking design created from black, grey and blue zigzags.
It's bold enough to create a focal point for your room. This allows you to add neutral furniture and other items without the risk of making your room look dull.
Item Dark Grey and Ivory Area Rug
A different take on the zigzag design this time. Individual parallelograms filled with coloured wool create a zigzag effect pattern. Various colours are available to you can go as bold or subdued as required.
It's made from 100% wool so it will feel fantastic but might shed a bit for the first few days.
