Antelope Print Rugs

Updated

Animal prints have had a long run of popularity in fashion and home decor. In fact, this type of print can be considered a classic and adds a hit of an elegant pattern without the distraction of lots of colors. While leopard, zebra, cheetah and tiger prints are the most popular, we’ve curated these six antelope print rugs to show how beautiful they can be in your home. Also referred to as deer or fawn prints, antelope rugs have a more subtle pattern than other animal prints and deserve to be the star of your design show.

Designer Advice:

Choose between a charcoal/cream, camel/light gray, light gray/cream or camel/cream color options for this antelope print rug. The color differences, while subtle, will look more dramatic when seen on a large scale. If you want to see more color contrast, choose the camel/cream option. If you’re interested in a monochromatic look, choose the camel/light gray combination.

Antelope Wool Print Rug

Antelope Wool Print Rug

Hand-tufted construction with 100% wool fibers, these antelope rugs can be purchased in six sizes, including a 2’6” by 8’ runner. The carpet pile is 0.39” high and can be cleaned by vacuuming (without a beater bar/rotating brush). Available in gray or beige with white markings.

Designer Advice:

Wool rugs can initially shed, but this should stop after several vacuumings. Avoid uneven fading and wear by rotating this fawn print rug occasionally. One way to choose the perfect size of area rug for your living room is to make sure the rug fully sits under each piece of furniture. Measure your entire conversation area, and choose a rug that extends 8” beyond the back edges.

Blue Antelope Print Rug

Everly Quinn

Treated with a stain- and moisture-resistant protectant, this antelope carpet is machine made from polypropylene with a polypropylene backing. It’s durable and requires minimal maintenance. Comes in three sizes and is designed to last in medium to heavy traffic areas. 

Designer Advice:

We love the combination of cream antelope markings on three shades of blue in this antelope print rug. If blue is part of your design color palette, this gorgeous rug will enhance it. A cream-colored sofa and loveseat with blue accent chairs and blue and cream patterned toss cushions would look polished and finished on top of this rug. Introduce a third accent color and lots of warm wood or whites.

Antelope Print Persian Oriental Wool Runner

Antelope Print Persian Oriental Wool Runner

BD Rugs

Made with a 100% New Zealand blend pile, this antelope print stair runner is backed with 100% cotton. The yarn is dyed for vibrant, lasting color in either beige or gray. A rug pad is recommended to soften and increase the life of the rug. Also available in four additional sizes.

Designer Advice:

You can create a stair runner out of a few 2’6” wide by 8’ long antelope carpets. Measure the entire length of your staircase, including the height of each tread. You’ll want to ensure the bound end of the carpet runner ends where the back of a stair tread ends and the tread begins. This will let you cut the carpet to length and hide the unfinished cut in a stair “crease.” Check out YouTube tutorials for more on how to perfectly install a stair runner.

Buying Guide

Those who are fans of the animal print style but don't want something as bold as a tiger or leopard print should consider the antelope print. It is a softer brown color with white patches to reflex the coat of a wild antelope. Most of them are of course faux animal prints, but let's look at the various styles of rugs that you may come across when shopping around for your home.

An antelope print rug can serve a variety of functions and yield to different decoration styles. Here are some of the best ideas:

Antelope print rug as a stair runner

You might not like the idea of buying antelope print carpet for your entire home, but if you're looking at the stairs and wondering whether it would look suitable in this area, have a look at stair runners in this print. A soft and high-quality runner for the stairs will add character and color to your home, without being too boring but without being too bold either.

Fluffy rug for the bedroom

For bedrooms and some living rooms, nothing is cozier than a fluffy rug. The antelope print can be found on fluffy rugs just as much as it can be found on the less fluffy and coarser versions. Fluffy rugs are often lighter in color than other materials, so you may find a beige or very light brown colored rug. This then blends in more with the white patches to create less contrast and help the room to achieve the cozy effect.

Grey antelope print rug for contemporary homes

Not every rug that you see with this print is brown, and you may also come across the grey antelope print rug. This is very well-suited to contemporary homes where you may feel like the brown shades are a little too traditional for the house. The white patches are also very modern and match white glossy furniture often found in contemporary designed homes.

Abstract shape rug to match traditionally shaped furniture

Avoiding the usual rectangular shape of rug can open your eyes to the other shapes which are available. If you want a rug that really resembles the traditional animal patterns and styles which were available, an abstract or unusual shape of rug is the ideal choice. This is a rug which is not in any set shape, but rather has various curves and edges to make it interesting and more unique. Use this in rooms where most of the furniture has straight and defined edges, as this will contrast well and bring a new effect to the home.

Antelope rug with black border

If the antelope print patterns are a little busy for your home, you can tone this down by choosing the lighter shades but also by getting a rug that has a border. The border is most commonly black, although it could be white too which matches equally well with many homes. The black border is best if your home has quite dark and homely décor already, while white is most suited to the rooms which lack dark colors and need to maintain an airy and clean feel.
