MODERN AREA RUNNER
Lighting up the rug world with a beautiful blend of vibrant colors and abstract design elements are those under the contemporary umbrella. These variations are typically influenced by modern art and architecture and generally boast free-form elements. Artists often resort to combining a tasteful variety of natural fibers such as silk, banana leaf fibers, and bamboo silk in conjunction with wool and cotton to achieve some of the most attractive handmade rug designs know to date.
On the odd occasion, contemporary rugs can feature retro patterns. These tend to give a nod to the art deco period, where geometric designs were extremely prevalent. As such, color schemes often feature bolder shades and combinations.
