RugVista Design Competition!
GET YOUR DESIGN IN PRODUCTION AND WIN $3,500
Welcome to RugVista’s annual Design Competition!
A colorful tribute to the faithful everyday hero in our homes. The Rug.
This year’s theme!
The theme for 2021 is Sustainable and with this theme we want to highlight the natural material wool. Thanks to the durability of the wool, the rug is a fantastic investment, it is soft to walk on and gives a luxurious feeling to the home. Rugs that are made of wool are very durable, last a long time, have a natural dirt-repellent effect, and become more beautiful over the years. Thanks to these durable properties, a wool rug can be used by several generations.
Everyone can join!
Whether you work as a designer, are a student, are passionate about interior design or color, shape and design, you have the opportunity to participate in our international design competition. We put no limits on your creation. Think creative, original, imaginative, inspired by trends and the inviting feeling the carpet gives to our homes.
At this 12th year of the competition, we look back at all the beautiful rugs created from different corners of the world. 92 countries to be more precise. And we hope that there will be more.
As a designer, you can win, not only honor, fame and money, but also the opportunity to have your rug produced and sold on RugVista.
