If you need something to make a statement in your home, one of these bold modern rugs will do just that. The combination of vibrant colors, extraordinary designs, and quality craftsmanship bring to life some of the most amazing rugs I have ever seen.
When you think modern rugs, you may limit that concept to big, swirly designs or sharp geometric patterns… but that isn’t always the case. To classify as a modern rug, these designs simply need to use the combination of colors, patterns, and craftsmanship to create something that has significant visual impact.

These modern rugs have an absolute wow factor that is undeniable.
Modern Rugs Don’t Always Rely on Color
It’s true that many modern rugs utilize stark color contrasts, such as Red, Black, and White to create the visual drama. And it is true that Bold Red Rugs tend to create a visual interest just by the use of that rich and vibrant color.
But that’s not always the case. Modern rugs can also use a dramatic mix of colors, including softer pastels. It’s more in the way that they use the colors than which colors they chose.
Some modern rugs don’t even rely on strong or intense color choices at all. Many of today’s modern rugs use a muted color palette, but are still able to create an incredible focal point because of their designs. Even those that go completely gray scale can still have a significant impact on the design of a room if the pattern creates enough visual interest.

Modern Rug Patterns
Many modern rugs rely on abstract or geometric patterns to bring their designs to life. However, purely geometric designs often have more of a Mid-Century Modern appeal to them.
Whereas abstract designs can create something completely fresh and new.

But that is more of a guideline than a rule. For example, this modern floral rug is quite stunning and completely bucks the “abstract” or “geometric” qualifications one would normally set for a Modern Rug.
I also love how today’s modern rugs are taking what may have been considered traditional motifs and turning them on their heads to create something truly unique.
