Chevron and Zigzag Rugs - Top ten

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.

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.

Palma Woven Black Rug

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.
