Distressed Rugs

Designer partners often tell us that “new spaces need old things” to feel their most authentic and livable. Our distressed rugs are uniquely selected to offer this mix of age, beauty, and grit. We define distressed rugs as rugs with obvious signs of wear. This may include uneven rug pile heights, exposed cotton foundations, and repaired (but not repiled) patches. Often, these signs of wear and repair are primarily aesthetic, and rugs remain highly resilient and appropriate for daily wear and tear in high-traffic areas in the home (such as the dining room, living room, kitchen, and hallways). On occasion, we source distressed rugs that may retain more delicate foundations and are best suited for lower-traffic spaces away from children and pets. In those cases, rug descriptions will be clearly marked and best suited for low-traffic.


The worn, weathered vintage rugs Passerine sources are a favorite among designers and homeowners across the country. These distressed rugs blend beautifully with the home and can be styled in traditional bohemian, contemporary, or transitional fashions. Whether heavily distressed or in pristine condition, rest assured that vintage rugs are a great way to incorporate the look of heirloom pieces into any modern space, thanks to their modern elements and centuries of old motifs that they blend.
