Company C’s Favorite Bright Rug Combos

Company C’s Favorite Bright Rug Combos

Warm Brights

Our ever-popular Landscape or Soledad rugs in warmer bright tones pair boldly with Brushstroke and Gemstones multis.

For less pattern, pair Crackle grass or peacock for textured color.

For performance without sacrificing style, our Cabana Stripe and Talavera rug tick all boxes.


Cool Brights

Best-selling Galleria rug is the perfect centerpiece for a colorful, yet classy, room. Pair it with Rhapsody for additional hues, or our new Jazzy or Gradations rugs for a subtle color callout.

For a more casual look, Hibiscus and Soiree still fulfill your color needs.
Confetti adds just a hint of a rainbow to tie it all together.


Looking for more geometric designs? 

Vintage Quilt and Color Code rugs have you covered!

For a more subtle, colorful callout, try pairing our Illusion or Sample Stripe rugs with any coordinating Crackle hue to tie the look together. 

Add our Veronica or Maze accent pillows to complete the space.

Blue Love

It’s so easy to design with blues—the most popular home decor color! Have fun mixing patterns & textures in cool and warm blue shades for an update to classic style.

Combine multiple shades of blue for a monochromatic look


Pair your favorite blues with our Old Glory or Medina rugs for colorful classic combo


Add pops of gold for a luxurious look

For a more traditional take on this modern color combo, try using a vintage floral like our Avalon rug.

If modern is more your style, geometrics like Griffin can be paired with different shades of blue, neutrals and golds.

Pattern Mixing

Two classic pattern mixing practices are to coordinate prints & stripes and prints & textured solids.

Choose colors from your pattern that are also in the stripes or textures for a cohesive combo. To pair with our best-selling Acacia rug, we recommend subtly-textured Sampler Stripe or, for a brighter coordinate, bold Gemstones. Easy peasy!


Statement Pieces

Sometimes you want one focal point to stand out. In that case, pair your statement rug with a coordinating solid. Our solid Crackle rugs add a just the right pop to an open floor plan without adding more pattern.

Try pairing Crackle with your favorite design! These fan-favorite designs are well-deserving of being called a statement: Captiva, Art & Soul, Galleria, Soiree, Jubilee, Bon Bons and Acacia.


If you’re looking for more texture, tweeds like Harrison, Tattersall and Tweedy add just the right amount of interest without overwhelming the main event.

How to Select Rugs for an Open-Concept Space

How to Select Rugs for an Open-Concept Space

This season, we’re focused on answering the top design questions we get asked. One of our most-requested topics is how do I choose rugs for an open-concept space?

To create a design flow in an open space, select a statement rug to take center-stage. Then style adjacent rooms with coordinating solids for a cohesive feel.

For those who love lots of pattern, texture and color, choose from our most popular rugs for a dramatic statement. The textures of vibrant Jubilee and Bon Bons are pure pedi-joy so no need for a foot massage.

Our solid Crackle rugs add just the right pop to an open floor plan without more pattern. They come in a variety of hues, making them easy to pair with your favorite designs.

What the GoodWeave Label Means to Company C

Hitting the road to visit our factories in India is always an exciting prospect. It’s an opportunity to meet one-on-one with the talented artisans who work so diligently to produce our hand-crafted designs. Being hosted by these facilities is a treat – we get a firsthand look into the operations and have the chance to chat with the employees as they bring our creative vision to life.

It is also an opportunity for us to connect with the community supported by the GoodWeave initiative.

More than 12 years ago we made the decision to support this program, and our co-founder, Walter Chapin, still serves on their standards committee. This helps us uphold one of our guiding principles at Company C – to create products using sustainably sourced materials and humane production methods.

We partnered with GoodWeave to support their initiatives to work with rug manufacturers in India to make sure our handmade designs were made without the use of child labor, produced in safe working conditions, and that the employees at the factories were paid fairly.

We’re passionate about making rugs – the right way.

Each year, we donate a portion of our rug sales to GoodWeave’s effort, which helps improve the lives of children in India through education. On this trip I had the pleasure of visiting one of their schools. I felt such joy in seeing the positive impact that this program has on the children. I was pleasantly surprised to see that even the youngest siblings are allowed to attend school with their older brothers and sisters. This helps the families while both parents work outside the home.

The children flourish at these schools. It was heartwarming to spend some time with them in between their class work. They also gave me the chance to be a fly on the wall while they sang and danced!

As savvy consumers express their concern about how and where our rugs are made, the GoodWeave label on the backs of our rugs offers piece of mind, letting customers know that their rugs were created without the use of child labor. If you’ve ever wondered why we support this organization, the numbers help tell the story.

While on this trip I learned that to date, more than 3,936 children have been freed from exploitation, 23,996 have been enrolled in schools, and 59,152 workers have been covered under the system in India. GoodWeave sponsors the education of all rescued child laborers, along with providing them rehabilitation and medical services.

Their Child Friendly Communities program promotes education in villages. GoodWeave facilitators build close relationships with the community, instill the value of education within the parents and teachers, and follow up with the children to make sure they’re attending school. Those who aren’t at the appropriate academic level for the public school are encouraged to attend a GoodWeave-run Motivation and Learning Centers,  a place designed to accelerate learning and allow children to catch up to their peers. There are currently 38 such centers running in 51 Child Friendly Communities in India.

Without consumer support, these programs couldn’t happen.

This is why we continue to proudly support GoodWeave’s mission of healing and educating children. I’m already looking forward to my next visit!
