Area Rug Selection at La-Z-Boy: Comparison of Surya & Feizy

Est. Reading Time: 7 Mins

Have you ever felt like a room is incomplete, but can’t seem to place your finger on what is missing? Often, what a room is missing is an area rug!

In fact, when Magaly del Castillo, an interior designer at La-Z-Boy Cyrville, is designing a room, she shows clients a comparison of their room with and without an area rug. After seeing the room with an area rug, most clients are pleasantly surprised.

Area rugs are a subtle, yet effective design element. They are the cherry on top of any room to add an extra dimension, colour, or style to enhance your furniture pieces.

At La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston, we sell a wide variety of area rugs from multiple different brands. The two main brands that we are from are Surya and Feizy, with a smaller selection from some other brands as well. 

Each brand has something unique to offer, and it is important to understand the differences between each brand and its products before choosing an area rug from La-Z-Boy. 

This article will help you differentiate between the different area rug brands that La-Z-Boy carries with the help of Magaly and Will Antoine, a design consultant at La-Z-Boy Cyrville. More specifically, we will outline how they compared to each other in terms of price, types of rugs, and abundance.

Surya Area Rugs at La-Z-Boy

About Surya

Surya is an area rug manufacturer that has been around since 1976. Starting off as a small supplier for hand-knotted rugs in North India, Surya has grown quite significantly. 

As a manufacturer, Surya makes a variety of home-inspired products, such as pillows, lighting, wall decor, and, of course, area rugs.

Surya is La-Z-Boy’s main supplier for area rugs. Among the other brands that La-Z-Boy carries, this one has the most variety in terms of styles, colours, collections, and more. 

In fact, Magaly says that Surya is well-known in the design world and is the main supplier for furniture brands on a global scale. “They carry so many rugs from traditional to very modern to contemporary–the possibilities are truly endless.”

Surya Area Rugs Selection

When it comes to area rug selection, Surya has plenty of shapes and sizes to choose from. 

Surya’s area rugs are not only meant for the living room but can be used in multiple rooms of the home, including hallways or entranceways, according to Will. 

Area Rug Shapes & Sizes

According to their website, Surya offers the following shapes for their rugs:

  • Rectangle
  • Round
  • Square
  • Oval
  • Runner
  • Octagon
  • Star
  • Hearth
  • Kidney

Among these shapes, Surya area rugs also come in a variety of different sizes. The sizes range from as small as 2’x3’ to as big as 12’x18’. According to Will, the most common area rug sizes are 5’x8’ and 8’x10’.

Area Rug Materials

In addition to a range of shapes and sizes, Surya rugs are also made with a wide selection of materials, such as:

  • Hair on hide, Sheepskin
  • Hute, Seagrass, Sisal
  • New Zealand Wool
  • Polypropylene, Olefin, Polyolefin
  • Polyester, Acrylic, Polyacrylin, Nylon
  • Tencel
  • Viscose
  • Wool-Felted
  • Wool

Magaly also mentions that the hair-on-hide area rugs mean they have leather rugs as well. She does warn, however, that these types of area rugs are quite pricey because leather hides are usually more expensive than fabric materials

Area Rug Unique Features

All of Surya’s area rugs can come with rug grips that make the rug stay in place, rather than letting it curl or fold in your room.

They also have indoor-outdoor rugs that you can place either on your patio outside or in your living room inside. These types of area rugs might also be better for sunrooms, which you can learn more about How to Furnish and Design a Sunroom in this article.

Surya also recently introduced washable area rugs to its selection. Now, instead of getting your area rugs professionally cleaned, you can easily put your area rug in your washing machine. After it is done in the washer, it can be hung dry, and it’ll be as clean as new.

How Surya Area Rugs Are Made

Surya rugs are made with a variety of materials that provide a multitude of styles and textiles. Further, Surya has several different locations where these rugs are made. These places include Turkey, India, Egypt, China and Belgium.

Magaly mentions that some of Surya’s area rugs are made with natural fibres and materials. These types of materials include raffia, jute, wool, and other non-synthetic items. 

With that being said, most of Surya’s rugs are not machine-made but hand-made. Hand-made rugs are made by many methods of construction, including hand-knotted, hand-woven, and hand-tufted.

Magaly also mentions that they have all types of non-natural-made area rugs like performance rugs, which are more durable than regular area rugs. There are also textile rugs for those who are looking for something less patterned and more “touchy-feely,” as Magaly says.

Cost of Surya Area Rugs

Surya area rugs fall within the mid to high price range on the market. With that being said, the cost of a Surya area rug can range drastically depending on the shape, size, and material, and is mostly dependent on how it was made.

Less expensive rugs are machine-made, being seamed and woven together with minimal effort. More expensive area rugs are hand-made, requiring much more time, effort, attention to detail, and a high level of craftsmanship.

The size and shape of the area rug also play a significant role in cost because this determines the number of materials required to make it.

Will says that a Surya area rug can range from as low as $500 to as high as $15,000. A 5’ x 8 foot Surya rug is sold at an average price of about $850-$3,500. An 8’ x 11’ Surya rug is sold at an average price of about $1,500-$15,000

Key Differences

The majority of Surya’s rugs are handmade, which means more of them will be more expensive than other area rugs that have either less detail or are machine-made. 

This is where the main difference is with Surya, compared to the other area rug brands at La-Z-Boy. Because most of them are handmade, these rugs are more uniquely designed and have “more interesting styles to them,” according to Will. 

Will does assure us that if someone likes a handmade area rug but they can’t afford it, there is sure to be a machine-made area rug in Surya’s selection that matches or is similar to the design of a handmade rug.

The amount of thickness of these area rugs is also something to be considered. Because they are thicker, they are made to last longer.

Feizy Area Rugs at La-Z-Boy

About Feizy

Feizy is another area rug brand that has been around for almost 50 years. The company was first founded by John Feizy, a man with a passion for rug making which can still be seen today with every knot and tuft of their area rugs.

Feizy is a higher-quality area rug brand than Surya that has revolutionized the area rug industry because of its innovative and unique designs. Not only do they have unique fashion-forward, hand-woven, hand-tufted, and hand-knotted pieces, but they have collections from designers. 

Specifically, the Thom Felicia area rug line from Feizy offers dynamic and bold colours to add to your sophisticated and modern lifestyle. Since Feizy is more traditional, this collection adds a different perspective to Feizy’s brand.

Magaly mentions that Feizy has area rugs for all kinds of furniture styles. “Area rugs need to match the environment that they’re in,” she says, “and you can definitely place a Feizy area rug in a bohemian, coastal, Persian household, you name it.”

Some of Feizy’s rugs are transitional, according to Magaly, but most are “traditional and global,” which is probably why Feizy’s rugs can fit so many different styles and looks.

Feizy Area Rug Selection

Feizy Rugs

Feizy is known for creating handmade, machine-made, and one-of-a-kind rugs for anyone to uniquely personalize. These rugs all have are meticulously handpicked and designed to showcase eclectic and dynamic looks.

Feizy displays a wide array of shapes and sizes for their area rugs. The following shapes can be found on their website:

  • Rectangular
  • Square
  • Round
  • Runner

There are also many different sizes to choose from, all ranging from 1’6” to 18’. Similar to Surya, Will says that Feizy’s common size for area rugs is 5’x8’ and 8’x10’.

Area Rug Materials

In addition to a range of shapes and sizes, Feizy rugs are also made with a wide selection of materials, such as:

  • Cowhide, Leather face
  • Jute
  • P.E.T. Yarn
  • Polyester
  • Polypropylene 
  • Viscose
  • Silk 
  • Wool
  • Acrylic Pile

These materials can be combined to create more contemporary or transitional area rugs.

Area Rug Unique Features

Like Surya, all of Feizy’s rugs also can come with rug grips so that your rug can stay in its place.

How Feizy Area Rugs Are Made

Feizy’s area rugs are made from all different types of construction methods. According to their online area rug selection, most of their rugs are made in Turkey and India.

All of Feizy’s area rugs are either machine-made, hand-knotted, tufted, or hand-woven, with most of their area rugs also being hand-made, like Surya.

One of Feizy’s main area rug selections is high pile rugs, while still producing other area rugs. A high pile rug means a rug that has taller and loose fibres that appear to be more fluffy but still hold as well as a low pile rug. 

A great example of a high pile rugs is shag carpets, which have loose loops in the seams but are still as durable as other rugs. 

Cost of Feizy Area Rugs

As previously mentioned, Feizy has the most expensive area rugs offered at La-Z-Boy. Although the price range is higher, Will says that much of Feizy’s selection is still comparable to Surya’s price range. 

With that being said, the cost range for Feizy’s rugs can be as low as $1,500 to as high as $15,000. The cost is much more expensive due to the fact that very few of their area rugs are machine-made. 

In fact, almost all of Feizy’s area rugs are hand-made with the names of well-known designers attached to their products.

Please note that La-Z-Boy prices listed in this article are subject to change without notice. Information is current as of June 6, 2023. Contact your local Ottawa or Kingston location by phone or in person for up-to-date pricing.

Key Differences

Feizy’s main difference as mentioned before is their price. Will says, “Most of Feizy’s area rugs are handmade and have a very high pile to them, and the ones I’ve come across have a traditional look as well, but very similar to Surya’s top-end line.”

The other main difference is Feizy’s aforementioned selection of high pile rugs. This selection also contributes to the higher price range because high pile rugs are more expensive than low pile area rugs given that they take more materials to be made.
