Contemporary rugs blur the
distinction between art and design. These rugs are truly works of
art for the floor. Contemporary rugs can find a place throughout the
home or office. These rugs can soften the look of wooden or stone
floors, provide comfort in a conservatory, bring a splash of pattern
or color or unifying feature to an otherwise subdued decorating
scheme. Contemporary rugs can work magic and cast a colorful and
Contemporary rugs are a fantastic element to
design around. If you have the opportunity, you may want to
start with a totally empty room, choose a rug first, then paint or
paper the walls in colors found in the rug. Choose furniture that
will enhance the colors or patterns found in a contemporary rug. A contemporary rug
with a bold, overall design can be the focal point of a room, so
consider choosing a chair or sofa in solid or subdued patterns.
There are also contemporary rugs that fit into
an established decor. If you already have your furniture, choose a
rug that picks up the colors used in your furnishing patterns.
Patterns can be mixed if they are coordinated by color.
Contemporary rugs can lend warmth, life, color and vibrancy to any
area or room within a home or business setting. A light colored
makes a room look more spacious, while deeper colors help make a
room feel cozy. A contemporary rug can also add a feeling of luxury
when used with wall-to-wall carpets. They can be used to pull
together various design styles. Maybe a room is too dull or too
elegant or too traditional. A contemporary rug either bold or
brash or with simple effectiveness can change the entire scheme of
your room. Elements of a contemporary rug design can be further
incorporated into the overall design scheme.
Rugs have to fit the room in which they are
placed. Not only size wise, but also style wise. Contemporary rugs
are fun and an ecstatic choice but may not mesh well in a room
filled with an old fashioned or colonial décor. Carefully choose
the room and the décor you want to blend or enhance with a
modern rug. Choose a size that will fit in more
than one direction so that the furniture can be rearranged if
necessary. In large rooms, on carpeted or hard floor surfaces, floor
coverings define your space. Consider how the room is used, how much
traffic the area gets, how it will be viewed and under what light.
For high-traffic areas such as hallways and foyers, you may want a
durable, patterned rug with a darker color.
Contemporaries begin as designs on paper
utilizing paint, pastel or collage. They combine traditional design
with unique and experimental techniques so that each rug has an
elegance and richness all of its own.
