Most Beautiful Rug

I had been going back and forth about this rug for months! I'm SO glad I finally decided to purchase it. It's changed the life of my living room. It's so beautiful and really ties the whole room together. It feels like really good quality and really easy to clean (even free from dog hair). Wish I could have a Citizenry Rug in all my rooms.

A modern take on tribal/southwest. Perfect amount of visual interest for my room without overpowering. I may layer with a jute rug underneath for a more plush effect. Very happy with this purchase.

Beautiful and comfy rug

This rug is lovely, well-made and sturdy, and surprisingly comfy underfoot. Well worth the wait for restock!

Love this rug

This rug is so beautiful and is the perfect compliment to my living room! My friends who have seen it said it definitely gives off desert vibes. It's totally the look I was going for. You won't regret purchasing it!

good and bad

The quality of this rug is great, the pattern is A+, but I have to say the colors don't match what the images portray. They look a lot warmer on the product page and like there are some undertones of clay and terra cotta. In person this rug is decidedly just brown. This is a nitpicky thing I know, but it is something I would want to know ahead of time if I was purchasing. I ended up keeping the rug because again the pattern and the quality were what i was looking for, and I think it fits the room, but I do wish the color was a bit more true to the pics.

The Citizenry

Hi Kate, We appreciate your thoughts on our Tejal Area Rug - Desert. We would expect slight variations of color due to the hand-dyed wool, and we are so sorry it didn't arrive exactly as you pictured! Someone from the team will reach out to check in with you - feel free to drop us a line at if we can help!! Best, -The Citizenry Team

I’ve purchased several items from The Citizenry; this one takes the cake. Ties the room together beautifully, true to size and I couldn’t be happier.
