The West Elm Stripe Sweater Rug is a gorgeous neutral rug that adds texture and coziness to a space, without adding any visual distraction.
This makes it a near-perfect rug that could be combined with any space, regardless of colors or designs currently in the room. I’ve seen it added in all sorts of places – from bedrooms, to give a soft landing under a bed, to living rooms, where it finishes the space without overwhelming it.
I found some amazing dupes for this rug, so check them out! Also, know that affiliate links are used, which means at no cost to you, I may receive a commission if you purchase through my links!
The Original: West Elm Braid Stripe Sweater Rug:
The West Elm Braid Stripe Sweater Rug in 8×10 is currently retailing for $840, on sale at time of posting for $672. The braided pattern makes it interesting and the ivory color keeps it neutral and soothing.
This one is hand-crafted and 100% wool. It’s hand-cut and looped, which means it’s going to last. You’ll see some shedding, but reviews say not too much.

Guess what, you can absolutely have the look for less – just check this ivory braided rug out.
Yup, yup, yup. Love. Adds so much to the space without drawing the eye away from other things in the room. I have ordered from Rugs USA and felt the delivery and customer service were excellent. The one comes in a million sizes and 6 colors. The 8×10 in ivory retails for $408.50. Score.
Available in 6 colors, this one uses felted cotton and wool to give a similar look for a more affordable price. Look at this one where it’s in a room and you can see a little barrel boucle chair off to the side.
What a great combo! Check out my post with 9 boucle chairs to find your fave. I might even love the thickness of this one even more than the original. It looks so cozy.

I love NuLOOM and have had several rugs from their line, so I’m a big fan of this gorgeous handmade braided wool rug. The ivory is very similar to the West Elm, but it also comes in a couple other colors.
This Safavieh version has a lower profile, but more intricate detailing, very similar to the West Elm version. The jute will also make it a little less soft underfoot, but very good for withstanding high traffic areas, such as under a dining table or an entryway.
Also available in several colors that have a mid-century modern vibe, such as beige, mustard and charcoal.
Pick up an 8 x 10 for $308. What a steal!
