Whether you're embracing your inner bohemian or simply upping the interiors ante with a touch of checkerboard, you can find it right here.

Look, I'll come clean — I'm a bit of a rug buff. Rarely, a week goes by without me switching my checkerboard design out for something a little more low-key or girly. As such, I've put my heart into finding you the ultimate rug roster. However, if you'd still prefer to have a little look for yourself, you can head straight to Target's rugs on-site. My advice? Embrace the filters, and aim high when it comes to star ratings. Reviewers might be cruel, but their honesty will save you disappointment.
