The competition

The competition closes on 2022-01-24
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.

As a follower of the competition, you are the voice of the people who vote for the winner. You who vote also have the opportunity to win a rug for your home.

Selected winners from 2019

The spotty cat Guzel Garipova Russia Russia

I graduated as an architect from Kazan State University of Building and Construction 2011, then Studied illustration and graphic design in Prague school of design. I have worked as a freelance illustrator, a graphic designer and an art director since 2008. This spotty cat in the carpet is posing in a thoughtful way and trying to mimic the background.

charcoal Eden den Hertog Netherlands Netherlands

I'm an amateur 16-year-old artist from Holland, that loves graphic design and digital art. Besides school I spend a lot of time doing artwork. This design is inspired by coal that has been lit, of which the fire is slowly fading out. The same way coal is an unsustainable fossil fuel that is slowly but surely not being used anymore.

Don't leaf me Paula Grzybowska Poland Poland

I'm 26 and I'm a fresh textile design graduate from Poland. Throughout mystudies I have been mostly focusing on minimalistic, black and white projects. Curently I'm starting to incorporate more colours and structures to my designs. My personal, minimalistic take on the botanical world.

CATALPA Aneta Doległo Poland Poland

I am an interior designer educated in Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow. In my projects I look for timeless design with personal expression. I belive that well designed spaces can improve our lives. The rug was inspired by leaves falling from the trees. The form was simplified, multiplied and dressed up in sophisticated colours.
