Choosing a rug for your living space is a big decision. You need something that complements your decor while simultaneously making a statement and tying the room together. An artfully chosen rug can help to define a space, make a room feel bigger or even create a feeling of light or an illusion of depth. For many modern living spaces, contemporary rugs can be a great alternative to traditional Persian rugs. While still handmade from the highest quality materials, modern and contemporary designer rugs are generally not as elaborate as Persian rugs.
Modern rugs tend to favour minimalist or free-form patterns often featuring abstract or geometric designs. They are generally more Western-inspired in their design and are less intricate than traditional rugs. This means that contemporary rugs can be better suited to modern, streamlined or less formal design aesthetics. Modern and contemporary rugs are much more variable when it comes to colour, compared with traditional rugs. Rather than sticking with the range of colours common to traditional rugs, contemporary rugs range from vibrant pinks and blues through to muted earth tones like greys and browns.
Handmade Modern Rugs
While the patterning of contemporary rugs may be distinctly modern, this does not mean there is any compromise on quality. Our range of modern and contemporary rugs are still handwoven using traditional techniques, made from only the finest natural materials and sourced from the best producers across the world.
Modern Contemporary Rugs
All of our modern and contemporary rugs are made from the highest quality wool and silk. Modern wool rugs are particularly durable. The resilient material allows the rug to recover quickly from indenting caused by footsteps or furniture. Natural wool fibres are resistant to staining which makes them easy to maintain. Woollen rugs also have a much longer life span than those made from synthetic materials, providing they are well looked after.
At The Red Carpet Australia, we offer modern rugs made the traditional way and at the best prices in Melbourne.
