Contemporary Rugs - Modern styles and designs
Types and adaptability of contemporary rugs
The world of contemporary rugs has evolved greatly from the antique rugs and oriental rugs of centuries ago. Today’s industry presents us with an overwhelming range of different colors, shapes and textiles ranging from leather shag piles to tropical designs made of natural fabrics like bamboo and sea grass.
If your home features a stylish contemporary design, there is nothing better to complement a cool, crisp interior than one of today’s modern style rugs. Choose from luxurious thick pile carpets in beautiful creams and browns, to forward-thinking patterns that really make a statement. For homes or apartments with exposed floorboards or polished wooden flooring, a contemporary area rug can help to make the room feel welcoming and cozy without imposing upon that wonderful feeling of space that many of us are looking for these days.
If you are looking for a rug to complement a slightly more traditionally themed interior, you should not necessarily overlook today’s modern designs as a possibility. Many of the latest rug designs work equally well alongside classic and antique furniture; especially those that have incorporated historical textile patterns and influences, like Chinese and Persian rugs.
Modern and designer rug collections are available online, often at greatly reduced prices to those you would find in store. Within this section we discuss a number of different styles of contemporary rugs, from braided rugs and accent rugs, to the Native American Southwestern collection.
