Traditional rugs have small ornate details that make them appealing to the eye. Traditional rugs are increasingly being paired with modern decor. They pair nicely together; the traditional rug becomes the anchor of the room. It pulls everything together while adding texture and character to the room.
While traditional rugs act as an anchor, tying the room together, modern rugs are meant to stand out; they do not blend in with the rest of the room. Modern rugs compliment the decor of the room; however, they act as the statement piece of the room. As opposed to traditional rugs, modern rugs have less small, ornate details and focus more on larger shapes and patterns.
