*Please note that small scatter size rugs are rugs that measure less than 8 ft in length

The Nazmiyal Collection offers the most extensive collection of scatter size smaller rugs from the Caucasus, India, Turkey, China and other countries. These antique rugs, which are sometimes referred to as area rugs, come in sizes that range from five feet long to nine feet long, and are ideally suited to the smaller spaces in your home or apartment.

While there is no one type of small scatter size rugs, these pieces were generally woven by nomadic tribes, and, as such, often present with village and tribal aesthetics, which are generally characterized by an emphasis on abstraction and geometric experimentation. Of course, there are more traditionally composed small rugs as well, from major rug-producing reasons such as Kerman and Tabriz. Irrespective of their origin, small rugs are extremely versatile, and well suited to almost any space.

Small rugs can be attractive additions to any room. They serve a variety of purposes, whether they are placed as a functional scatter rugs in front of a desk or bed or arranged underneath another article of furniture as a decorative option. Small scatter rugs are among the most versatile and practical options that we stock, and they can be particularly recommended for first time shoppers who are just beginning to explore decorative options with antique rugs.

Smaller rugs come in all shapes and designs, and they can be one of the best ways for you to add an accent to a large area or set a more defining presence in a smaller area. An easy way to add style and presence to any room is to set the small rug underneath another piece of furniture. The furniture you choose to match with the rug depends largely on the rug’s size and color. A smaller rug can work well with accent furnishings and other individual pieces, while larger rugs are often better chosen for their corresponding articles of furniture. You can mix and match to get the desired effect in your room. Small rugs may also be ideal when they are set around strategic sections of the home. Places like small walkways and hallways can always benefit from the addition of a smaller rug. The rug’s size makes it easier to arrange within the desired area, and it can even be used with another rug to “synergize” a certain visual effect.

This is particularly recommended in hallways, where viewers can experience a range of motion through the use of several rugs. With smaller size rugs, you may find it easier to create a transition to larger elements and effects in the home. A shifting of colors and themes can begin with the inclusion of a small rug in the area, leading the viewer’s eye from one section of the room to the next. This effect can be achieved through the use of a smaller rug in front of the entryway, leading the viewer’s attention either to other furnishings of a different style or to another rug entirely, one that further transitions into the room’s decor. Like with any other rug, planning ahead for the shapes, colors and textures can be one of the best ways to determine which rug can work best with your decor.
