All good things must come to an end, and like Taco Bell and relationships with skaters, the best sales and deals tend to have a short shelf life. That’s true for Way Day, Wayfair‘s huge annual two-day sale, which has been dazzling our hearts, minds, and online shopping carts this week. Today is its last day, which means you’ve gotta hustle if you wanna score the best discounts on outdoor furniture, KitchenAid stand mixers, whimsical cat trees, home soft-serve machines, and more, more, more.
But this is an especially exciting shopping event if you’ve been in the market for a rug—not just any rug, but a rug that makes a statement, dammit. We all know that the right rug really ties the room together, and flexes your impeccable taste as a discerning adult with an impressive home.
You’ll find loads of ho-hum rugs all over the internet at various price points, but you know what we love about Wayfair? The selection, baby. (Here’s a running list of the best stuff on Wayfair.) That place is a goldmine if you know where to look, and since it’s literally our job to find the best things your hard-earned clams can buy, we have spent countless hours spelunking its bowels. Now, back to the rugs. You’ll find dupes for ultra-trendy designer rugs, unique shag numbers, geometric bachelor-pad jawns, and tapestry-like beauties that look straight from artisans in Morocco. And, because we’re discerning types over here, they’re all super highly rated by happy buyers.
Read on for the best unique statement rugs on Wayfair—all of which happen to be on big-time sale right now.
