How to Shop Vintage Rugs on Instagram
I first fell down the Instagram rabbit hole while shopping for a new rug for my living room (the hunt is still on) when I stumbled across the account Loom and Kiln. I loved the way they showed the rugs styled in situ. Seeing them displayed in real interiors made it easier to picture how it would look in my space and browsing their feed was far less overwhelming than scrolling through product photos on a traditional e-commerce site.
Instagram rug shops seem to follow the same formula loosely, you follow their accounts to get previews of rugs before they become available and check out their stories for additional sneak peeks. Many have a specific day/time you can shop new batches and once they drop you have to move quickly if there’s a particular piece you have your eye on. With a few exceptions, most the actual shops live elsewhere: either through the brand's website or Etsy, and shipping is fast and relatively reasonable. I recommend checking out store policies in advance of a sale going live, the last thing you want is to be reading through those terms and conditions while someone else makes off with the item in your cart. Finally, I would set a realistic budget or discuss with your significant other what you’re both willing to spend because prices are not usually posted in advance of the sale. Below, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite accounts to follow. Happy shopping!
Can we all appreciate for a moment how beautifully styled these images are? The curated selection from Loom and Kiln launches every Wednesday at 9:00 am MST, and with a loyal following of over 140k there is some serious competition. Items ship for a flat rate of $10 and are sent out within three days of your completed purchase.
We have the most spectacular pair of Caucasian runners I’ve ever seen going up in the shop tomorrow 😱😱😱 They’re almost the exact same size, and are different enough but compliment each other’s colors just perfectly 👌🏼💙 I was so tempted to sell them as a pair but resisted 👯♀️ // 📷: @jessicawhitephoto styled in the home of @magpieandrye #loomandkiln
I may be partial to this shop because it reminds me of living in New England (they name the rugs after NE locales), but the traditional Persian rugs in vibrant colors, that they stock, really are the perfect way to bring just about any space together. Rugs ship within 3-5 days of purchase.
Rug and Weave
With a mix of vintage Persian, Moroccan and Turkish rugs this Canadian based shop has something to suit every aesthetic. Orders within Canada and the US ship in 4-6 business days and shipping is free on purchases over $150.
I can't say we've ever come across a Persian quite like this one - and I have to say we are totally in love with it's incredibly unique design and colour palette! Even better, this vintage Tabriz measures out at 8'4"x 10'7" - and with it's sturdy construction and low pile, it's the perfect statement piece in any dining room! Available as part of tomorrow's new batch!

One of the many beauties that sold in Las Vegas last week! We had an issue with customs and as a result our product photography was delayed by a week. All is here now and I am photographing it all today! I hope to have everything edited and up on the website by Thursday! We have so much new exciting stuff!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻💕
I just added this terra cotta beauty to the shop 🌿 I’m in love with the colors on this vintage Persian. It measures 8’1”x4’7” and is priced at $685 with free domestic shipping.
