For the past few months, I have been on a vintage rug hunt of sorts. You see, I have fallen hard for kilim and vintage inspired rugs…the types often included in boho chic design schemes. Not only are they a great way to add a worldly and eclectic interest to a space, but most designs are also great at hiding dirt ( awesome if you have pets or kiddos).
In my quest for the perfect yet affordable boho rug, I have accumulated a huge and private Pinterest board (because I don’t want my selections to sale out) of reasonably priced yet beautiful rugs. Lucky for you, I thought I would share some of my favorite picks today. All of the rugs listed below are either under $100 or right at the mark (like $102).
And sure…there are plenty of vintage rug round-ups floating out in cyber land( many curated by my favorite interior designers), but their selections are way out of my price range- no way in hell I am investing thousands of dollars in a rug.
For your convenience, I have included affiliate links. That simply means if you click on one of the links and buy something, I receive a small commission, but don’t worry… you won’t pay a dime more. Be sure to click on the rug to be taken to the product information and retailer.
Boho Chic Rugs Under $100
And just so we are clear, you have probably figured out by now, given the price point, that these rugs are not actually vintage…but do have a vintage essence. While these rugs are gorgeous, for the most part, I don’t think people will be mistaking them for family heirlooms or anything. Nonetheless, they serve their purpose and make an impact -all for only a small investment.

In fact, I purchased rug “c” in a size 6”x9” for my foyer, and absolutely love it. You can click here to buy this same rug.
My family tracks in a lot of dirt and mud, and this rug disguises it all. Not to mention, it is soft and thick.

In an effort to add more boho flair to my living room, I layered a 5” x 7” tribal rug (very similar to rugs “m” and “d” displayed above) over an existing 8” x 10” jute rug. And see those Moroccan poufs? Read this post here to see a trick on how I got them on the cheap.
While this rug in my laundry room is over $100, I still wanted to share it with you guys because I am so in love with the colors. And although it looks like a true vintage kilim rug, it is half of the cost of an authentic one. Even better, it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. You can buy this rug here.
While buying authentic kilim rugs, hand-made from wool, will set you back about $700 just for a 6×9 size, I have found some more affordable kilim versions for under $300 and have rounded them up below….
Affordable Kilim Rugs under $300
As I mentioned, the rug shown in my laundry room is actually the rug labeled “m” right above, and I have used rug “f” for a client project. As you can see from the photo I have included below, rug “f” is an absolute stunner in real life……
Here is another close-up of rug “f” which is included in the kilim rug round-up above…..
You may have noticed that many of the rugs featured are 4” x 6”, 5” x 7” or 6” x 9”, and for many spaces (like living rooms or dining rooms) this may be too small of a scale. However, if you have an existing solid color rug in a larger size (jute and sisal rugs are ideal), a smaller patterned rug will work beautifully layered on top. And if you are looking for a larger rug (8” x 10” are typically ideal for living rooms), most of the rugs featured are also available in larger sizes.
So for all of you who cannot afford to spend your life’s savings on a freaking rug, I hope I guided you in the right direction.
If you are on the hunt for other boho decor staples, you may want to consider getting yourself some morrocan poufs- no bohemian room is complete without one!
