An area rug an essential accent for any living room, bedroom or dining room. Contemporary rugs can help define the theme and color palette of a room, protect floors and absorb the noise of day to day life. Be sure to make considerations on rug size (the most common is 5 x 8), material, and most importantly, design. When choosing a modern rug, look for bold patterns like chevron or stripes, as well as abstract designs that make a statement. Here is a breakdown of our most popular patterns:
Modern Chevron Area Rug: The chevron pattern is made up the consecutive V pattern, and actually has origins in military uniforms. The black and white chevron rug is particularly popular, but be sure to browse the wide assortment of colors and materials to choose from to give your room a modern chic feel.
Modern Striped Rug: Clean lines and minimalist design epitomize modern design, so a striped rug is a great choice any modern home. You can opt for a simple two color design, or go for a more abstract multi colored modern striped rug that is more remeniscent of a painting. It's a great way to add complementary or contrasting colors to a room.
Modern Quatrefoil Rug: Quatrefoil is a pattern that you see incorporated into a lot of modern decorative pillows, rugs and other textiles. Look for variations of the traditional quatrefoil design (which generally just includes curves) such as the barbed quatrefoil design. It's best to pick a simple color combination and let the bold lines of the design speak for themselves.
