Some Of Our Most Favorite Movie Rugs

“The rug really tied the room together – did it not?” Rugs have made many a cameo appearance in many a Hollywood movie.

Movie rugs

Here are our favorite rugs in movies:

The Big Lebowski: The Dude’s (Jeff Bridges) heart is broken when some local muscle mistakes him for a millionaire, breaks into his shoddy L.A. Home, and soils his rug. Claiming that “the rug really tied the room together,” The Dude seeks out his millionaire doppelganger for recompense. The rug is the genesis of chaos in this epic Coen Brothers film.

Harry Potter: the Gryffindor common room features an antique Sultanabad rug that, alongside walls draped with antique tapestries, gives the room the scholarly feel of a luxurious study or library (which reminds us of a certain New York City library featuring a similar piece from the Nazmiyal Collection).
