Oriental Rugs in Modern Spaces

{Amber Interiors}
Oriental (or Persian or Killim) rugs are a big trend in home decor right now. Whether vintage or new, they've found their way onto floors in every room in the house - even kitchens and bathrooms! In the past, oriental rugs fell firmly into more traditional decor camp and were paired with heavily ornate, dark furniture, but over the past few years, I've found them creeping their way into many modern spaces. Because they tend to have saturated colors and intricate, busy patterns, they have the ability to add visual interest and balance to an otherwise more neutral, light-colored room - at least that's my favorite way to use them! I've heard it said that oriental rugs can be like art for the floor, and I think I agree!

I found a few pretty examples of modern rooms that have this style of rug and thought I'd share with y'all today.

What do you think of mixing these two styles?

If you're in the market for a vintage killim/oriental/persian rug, try Etsy or Ebay.

For new, Google is your friend! You just have to figure out what style you like and then you can find them just about anywhere :).

  1. Floor carpet and area rugs play an important role in today's modern space designs. The color of the rug reflects a lot on the design that you want to portray that's why it is very important to carefully chose it. This blog means a great help to me to have a wider understanding on what carpet and rug from furniture store Manila to chose when modern design is concerned.

  3. I love your tutorial featuring modern spacing containing antique, Persian & Oriental rugs. I've avidly pursued purchasing antique rugs on my own, and needless to say I have been burned many times due to the industry's lack of transparency with retail clients. I want to recommend contacting Richard Afkari who owns a rug gallery on E 59th st in NYC & another in Norwalk, CT. He helped advise me, even if it was against his own short term interests. Aside from a great resource, he has the expertise and keen eye that understands the messages I convey. His taste is evident in his collection, too. Avoid the big box retailers too, (I don't have to name any names). His website is www.rugsinnyc.com & thank me later :)
