The Warby Parker of Turkish Rugs Is Now Cheaper Than Ever

We've sworn to never buy rugs anywhere else. You should, too.

Please note: If you buy through the links in this article, we may earn a small share of the profits.

In the world of home decor, nothing is more timeless than a handmade Turkish rug. The motifs, patterns and techniques that dominate showrooms today have gone largely unchanged for nearly 1,000 years, with both Marco Polo and Ibn Battuta — perhaps the two most famous traders to ever walk the earth — having gushed about the country’s vibrant, elegant rug markets as far back as the 14th century.

To absolutely no one’s surprise, a pedigree like that commands a pretty penny: depending on size, condition, origin and knot count, a 6 x 9′ Turkish rug will typically run an American buyer somewhere between $2,000 and $5,000. Unless, of course, you buy it from Revival, the direct-to-consumer company based in Oakland that works with rugmakers in remote regions of Turkey to ship all inventory straight to shoppers stateside. Even their largest options — which measure 7 x 10′ and up — tend to check in under $1,000.

We’ve been fans of Revival since they launched, and I finally bit the bullet and ordered two large area rugs last year, paying under a grand for each of them. They are, in two words, f*cking epic: plush and stately and rich with color, the perfect backdrop for nearly any piece of furniture you put them under.

I cannot in good faith recommend that you shop anywhere else for a rug, and that’s doubly true now that Revival has a number of their models up for sale at Huckberry for an extra 13% off. Our favorites include the Beria (pictured above), Altay and Deste;  just beware that everything is one-of-a-kind, so once it sells, it’s gone forever.
