Animal rugs can be a friendly way to introduce the beautiful colours and patterns found in nature into your home. This could take many forms, from animal print rugs in leopard skin or zebra stripes, or rugs decorated with an animal design, or even rugs in the form of an animal - but, whatever your preference, an animal-inspired rug can bring vibrancy and flair to a room.

Best animal rugs to buy in 2022

Sass & Belle Woodland Fox Rug

Sass & Belle Woodland Fox Rug

Sass & Belle have a lovely range of homeware products that are sure to bring something unique to your home's interior. This rug is no different, in the shape of a (very cute) woodland fox that's unlike anything else on the market.

The cute animal rug could work wonderfully as an eye-catching feature in a nature-themed room, whether that's a space with earthy tones, jungle prints or floral designs. It would also work well in a children's room as a warm addition to a space full of pleasant aesthetics.

Prescott Tropical Cheetah Rug

Prescott Tropical Cheetah Rug

Available in a range of sizes, this tropical cheetah-themed rug is a bold, eye-catching choice. It can play a role similar to a feature wall, acting as the centre of attention and adding instant vibrancy to a room.

Alternatively, if you have a room that's already bursting with colour, this rug would blend in perfectly. Just imagine how it would look next to some indoor plants!

Jayleen Hand-Tufted Wool Rug

Jayleen Hand-Tufted Wool Rug

This 100%-wool rug is made in India and hand-tufted for a shaggy effect. It features a distinct zebra design that's bold without being too in-your-face.

The design makes it an exciting centrepiece for a hosting or entertaining space, while those versatile monochrome colours allow it to easily blend with a variety of decor styles.

Prue Rug

Prue Rug

Bursting with vibrant colours and vivid imagery, the Prue Rug from Anthropologie would be a head-turning feature in any home. Boasting a one-of-a-kind design depicting stylised big cats on a colourful backdrop, the rug is made from embroidered wool with a cotton backing. As this is a thin pile, a rug pad is recommended to prevent slipping.

Pedro Dandelion Wool Rug

Pedro Dandelion Wool Rug

It's not often that penguins are made to look so stylish, but it's impossible not to be won over with this bold and simple design, almost reminiscent of Egyptian hieroglyphs. Handmade using 100% wool, we love those contrasting soothing yellow and charcoal tones.

Masai Animal Leopard Wool Rug

Masai Animal Leopard Wool Rug

The wildly-familiar leopard print is given a more subtle and modest design here, as a low-key pattern that can blend more easily into the room. Handmade from 100%-wool, this rug is available in four sizes.

Cheetah Rug

Cheetah Rug

Cheetah print might not be your thing, but a print of cheetahs could definitely add something a bit different to your home. The pattern on this Anthropologie exclusive has lovely, warm colours with a cast of cheetahs dotted around in different positions. It's the kind of rug that combines homely with stylish.

Sass & Belle Happy Sloth Chill Zone Rug

Sass & Belle Happy Sloth Chill Zone Rug

Sass & Belle offer another cute choice that'll be a favourite for families and kids. This rug is in the shape of an adorably sleepy sloth, resting on a branch with a smiling face. It's made from cotton and could work wonderfully as a rug, floor mat or decoration.

We feel that this sloth rug shouldn't be exclusive to children's rooms. It's a fun design that could blend perfectly among any nature-themed decors. But, if your young one is a fan of sloths, this couldn't be more fitting - you can bring the sloth's laid-back vibe into your own home!

Genuine Sheepskin Animal Fur Rug in Blush Pink

Genuine Sheepskin Animal Fur Rug in Blush Pink

Available in a pleasing variety of colours, these rugs are made from genuine sheepskin. Use them as warming floor rugs or stylishly drape them over furniture to bring something excitingly classy (and ridiculously soft) to your home.

Leopard Brights Rug

Leopard Brights Rug

Designed for kids, this could be that final touch to complete a bright, colourful children's room. The 100%-polyester rug is textured, making it a perfect activity spot for the rough and tumble of playtime.

Spike Marine Hand Tufted Wool Rug
