Old Meets New: Oriental Rugs in Modern Interiors

Posted in Tips & Trends

Oriental rugs are such a classic design element, but they need not be limited to traditional homes. Modern interiors can benefit just as much from these rugs, which work wonderfully to soften and warm an otherwise spare design scheme with their intricate patterns, rich colors, and wonderful tactility, as shown in this oriental rug and kilim roundup on Apartment Therapy.

Here at Colony Rug, we are constantly sourcing new area rugs for our 2,000 square foot “Oriental Room.” With a huge selection of gorgeous rugs from around the world, you are sure to find one that fits perfectly in your home. The beauty of oriental rugs is in their impeccable craftsmanship and versatility, fitting into traditional, contemporary, rustic, and minimalistic interiors alike. Take a look at some fabulous examples of oriental rugs in modern interiors, below, and visit our showroom to get the look for your own home!
