Geometric rugs are those that carry non-figurative patterns. It means their designs are full of abstract, geometric figures like triangles, rectangles or other polygons. They may carry circles, stripes or many different shapes at once. Geometric rugs come in a variety of colors. Some of them are minimalistic, others flaunt very bold and contrasting coloration.
The Chic of Geometric Rugs
Glamorous. Mesmerizing. Timeless. Such indeed are geometric rugs. Nothing adds a greater finishing touch to an interior than a perfectly matched carpet. And what may be better than the versatility of figures, the abstraction of design and the order of symmetry? After all, they say that mathematics is the queen of all sciences, is it not? There is no way of resisting the charm of angular elegance exuded by this kind of interior ornaments. They rely on clean, clear and orderly esthetics.

Different Types of Geometric Rugs
The category of geometric rugs is vast, therefore, not so easy to put into stiff frames. It comprises of many different patterns, trends, and movements. Not to mention the considerable number of high-end designers involved. Geometric motifs are abstract, nonrepresentational shapes such as circles, lines, ellipses, triangles, rectangles or polygons. However, there is so much more depth and history behind them when we talk about antique and vintage rug symbols.
Scandinavian, especially Swedish rugs, is a model, a historical example of the use of geometry in design. There, a cross symbolizes a flower and a rhombus is a diamond. Every figure has its own distinctive meaning. Moreover, let’s not forget Art Deco. This extremely influential style draws abundantly from geometry. Art Deco arranges figures in a way to obtain intricate, unobvious patterns, keeping them stylish at the same time. However, the most classic geometric carpets are tribal textiles. Moroccan rugs like Beni Ourains or kilims are exactly what we are talking about. Simplified motifs will match both boho and state-of-the-art spaces.
