Contemporary rugs are beautiful, versatile, and designed to complement a wide variety of decorating schemes. As such, they make great accent and conversation pieces while also brightening up the space in your home.

Contemporary rugs feature patterns that are based on traditional rug patterns and designs, but are most influenced by the Art Nouveau movement. Originating in Europe in the 19th century, this movement was characterized by its use of floral motifs and flowing lines. This movement paved the way for the later Fauvism and Cubism movements, both of which incorporated floral motifs, linear lines, abstract shapes, and bold colors.

In America, contemporary area rug designs were heavily influenced by these European movements as well as the German Bauhaus and Art Deco design movements. Rug makers soon began incorporating these influences into their designs, and as contemporary rugs gained popularity, designers and manufacturers experimented with many different styles, colors, and materials (although wool contemporary rugs were and still are the most popular type). While advances in technology have given way to machine-woven rugs which are more uniform and have even knotting, hand-woven rugs are still very popular. Hand-woven rugs, because each not is tied with varying tension, the each design is unique and less static.

A contemporary area rug works well with a modern, clean decorating scheme. When choosing colors and designs for your rug consider the colors and designs of the furniture and artwork that will surround it. A rug with bold designs and colors can serve as the primary focal point of a room, which is why it is important to make sure that your furniture compliments the design and does not overpower it. If bold patterns already exist in your surrounding furniture, a more simple design may be better for you. Many contemporary rugs feature asymmetric patterns which can be used as a sort of visual road map in directing the flow of the room.
