The Difference Between Traditional And Modern Rugs, Here Is The Scoop!

Modern Rugs

Traditional rugs, they are generally called Oriental or Persian. They have patterns and designs that are up to centuries old and tend to lend an air of elegance. They often tend to resemble a tapestry and are usually hand-woven from natural fibers such as cotton, silk, wool or Jute. They often have a multitude of colors and often have familiar shapes such as flowers and diamond. These rugs can also vary in size and shape. We discuss here to know the difference in silk rugs and faux rugs.

Contemporary or Modern rugs often are reminiscent of the modern art style. They incorporate bold designs, colors and have abstract, asymmetrical and geometrical patterns. Modern rugs are available in a wide array of shapes, colors and designs. They are typically of time honored European and Asian patterns. They also tend to be machine made, but not always.

Pricing. Another difference is in pricing. A genuine traditional rug is usually very, very expensive. Traditional rugs can also run in the thousands, most traditional rugs are priced like a fine antique. Because you have invested so much in your rug, you want only the best cleaning and repair for it.
