Products: Modern, Minimal Rugs

It may be a shocker to some of you, but rugs can work in ultra-modern, minimal spaces too. There was a time when oriental rugs were all the rage, but that has definitely changed. Here are a few rugs that would compliment that Scandinavian, clutter-free environment or that high-rise, sleek condo.

Tiger, by Nordic Knots

An obvious play on a tiger’s stripe, this black and white 100% wool rug is simple, but visually dynamic. Imagine putting this on a wide plank mid-toned wood floor with modern black furniture. Or you could have a completely achromatic color scheme with a pop of color like red.

Pastels in bold, abstract patterns are one of my favorite juxtapositions because it’s a little unexpected. This rug would definitely soften a room without being too frilly.


Indoor Outdoor Rug

Indoor/Outdoor Gray Rug, Land of Nod

Okay, this is for a kid’s room, but do guests need to know that you put a kid’s rug in your living room? Absolutely not. Bonus, you can use it indoors or outdoors so it would also work on a balcony, porch or terrace.

Shag rugs are all about the texture. When you have a minimal space (especially one that has a lot of white) a way to break up the monotony is by having contrasting textures. If everything in a minimal space is glossy it can feel very cold .

Want to bring some warm tones into a space without losing that minimalist feel? This may be the rug for you. With some southwestern influence, this piece has a simple design with just enough detail to remind you of the idea of handmade crafts. It’s no wonder, with hand-tufted wool construction, this item is made to last for years to come.
