Area Rugs to Go with Your Scandi Home - Aaltonen Interiors

Since wooden floors are the most common type of flooring in Scandinavian interiors, area rugs are very important: they add a bit of texture, patterns and colours to create that very personal and homely feeling. They also have a couple of huge advantages over carpets: they are easy to clean, wash and maintain; it is also easy to swap them around or out when you want a change!

Nice rugs are not always the easiest ones to find, but I’ve picked a selection of 10 area rugs to go with your Scandi style home. A lot of black and white ones, few with colour. Take your pick!


Hanna Korvela Design

These hand woven rugs made of cotton and paper yarn come in several colours and the texture of the rugs is absolutely beautiful. The rugs are made by Finnish company Hanna Korvela Design.




Stockholm by Ikea

This Stockholm rug is an Ikea classic and you’ve probably seen it in several Scandi blog posts or pictures of Scandinavian interiors. It’s very Scandinavian and great value for money.






Margo Selby

This rug has a bit more pattern, but in the black-grey-white colours it works really well. The rug is called Berlin and it is by British designer Margo Selby.






Mum's Loves Africa

MUM’s loves Africa rug from Finnish company Mum’s does look busy at first, but in an otherwise harmonious environment it gives the interior just the right amount of interest.





This 100% wool Kolong rug from Urbanara is absolutely beautiful and will keep your feet warm at winter time.



Suomu by Mum's

Suomu rug (fish scale in Finnish) is another rug from Finnish company Mum’s. The pattern is fun and contemporary at the same time.




Bob by Pappelina

It would be impossible to talk about Scandinavian interiors without stripy rugs! This black and white Bob rug is from Swedish company Pappelina. It’s actually made of plastic, so it’s great e.g. in the kitchen. Don’t be put off by the fact that the rug is plastic! The feel of the rug is nice and soft, not cold and “plasticky”.





Pale blue, powder pink and soft greys are perfect to bring a hint of colour to your white Scandi home. This rug is Kharda rug from Urbanara.





Ceylon by Sanderson

If you are looking for more colour and more contrast, then the stripy Ceylon rug from Sanderson could be your choice.





Avenue by Woodnotes

Avenue rug in stone/yellow from Finnish company Woodnotes brings the sunshine in. It gives your Scandi interior a bit of colour, without detracting from the rest of the interior
