It is a term that can encompass a wide variety of styles and designs that are often referred to as contemporary rugs as well. Think minimal floral patterns, stripes, abstract shapes and spirals. I am sure you have come across a modern rug at some point or other in your life, as their use is very common today.
Owing to their unique patterns and colors, modern rugs are often use to provide contrast, to protect floors from wear and tear and most of all to provide a cushion for your feet, especially on cold hardwood floors and tiled flooring.
While the main purpose behind a traditional modern rug is decorative, a modern rug can have its practical uses as well. For instance, you probably won’t put an expensive traditional carpet in an area of the house that sees heavy foot traffic, while a modern rugs could easily be thrown in there.
