Modern, when applied to rugs, means they are contemporary in colour, pattern or materials. There are some modern-style rugs that are made in using a traditional process (such as looming) but feature an on-trend colour or pattern. It is important to recognise that modern rugs can be used in a traditional setting and vice versa. Incorporating contemporary rug is a clever way to update a lounge or dining room with vintage or antique furniture for example. Consider how a modern shaped rug (a round rug for example) could be placed under the corner of a bed in a bedroom to define the space.
