Modern Area Rugs
The diversity of modern area rugs
One of the strongest points of modern area rugs is their diversity. Our demands grow with every day, so carpet designers work endlessly to deliver us the best and most original product. As a result the market is full of wonderful creation. Compared to antique area rugs, their contemporary counterparts offer more flexibility and this is why we decided to introduce you to some of the most popular types of modern area rugs.
Various trends in rugs change as fast as those in fashion. Right now, Moroccan rugs are considered to be the most fashionable, so it won't come as a surprise for you to learn that a significant number of modern area rugs are made in this style. What does it mean? Well, Moroccan pieces are known for their luxurious piles that are soft enough to sleep on them and simplistic, tribal patterns. Although the designs are often reproduced, many manufacturers decided not to include high piles in their creations and go for flat woven carpets. This met with mixed reactions from the general public - on one hand flat weaves are a very practical choice, but on the other people don't want copies - they want authentic Moroccan products.
Abstract patterns on modern area carpets are not something unusual. As they take up a lot of space, it is a smart choice to make them as decorative as possible. Designers let their imagination flow freely and create most bold and stunning patterns. This of course might pose some serious problems for inexperienced decorators, but is nothing to be feared.
Oriental rugs and Persian carpets were always a great source of inspiration for designers and weavers all over the world. Countless reproductions are being made each year and many of them are modern area rugs. It is a great way to give your interior some of that elegant vibe, characteristic for antique carpets, but also a modern approach to the subject. Whatever your choice will be, you won't be disappointed! We invite you to browse through our section of modern area rugs and pick one that will be perfect for your household.
