Vintage rugs started the transition from opulent antique designs to modern minimalism, and a lot of modern rugs look very different from these created over 100 years ago. In the 20th and 21st centuries, solid rugs gained huge popularity (a modern solid rug is one that does not bear any pattern and is rendered in a single, usually neutral, color). A modern blue area rug, a modern gray rug, a black and white modern rug – they all belong to this state-of-the-art custom rug category. Thanks to versatility, lightness of design, and unobtrusive character, a modern solid rug is a perfect space definer. If rendered in a light, neutral color, a contemporary solid rug will also optically enlarge the space while bringing in a bit of warmth.
