Modern Rugs: It's All About The Vintage Look

Posted on

Interior design trends change all the time which is why we are constantly updating our rug collections with the latest designs and styles. Recently we have seen our modern rugs surge in popularity, particularly those with faded designs. Washed out rugs come in a variety of patterns and colours, so you can accentuate different areas of the room and add a touch of sophistication.

Modern Rug Trends 2020

Distressed furniture and textiles have become more popular in recent years, and this trend has carried over into rugs. The 'washed out' or 'erased motif' look takes its inspiration from antique rugs and is one of the reasons why traditional Persian and Afghan rugs have remained fashionable for hundreds of years.

You might think faded and washed out rugs would create an outdated look, but the opposite is true. Pairing a faded rug with modern furniture blends the old and the new, creating a contemporary look that is on-trend in 2020.

Faded rugs also allow you to sneak in a bit of colour to rooms with a neutral colour palette.

Evoke Rug Collection

The Evoke range is one of our most popular collections of modern rugs and it's easy to see why. With their faded finish and fusion of contemporary and traditional stylings, these rugs will suit all modern homes and those going for the on-trend boho look. Make sure you pair your Evoke wash rug with modern furniture if you want to avoid a dated look. The wrong furniture and accessories can quickly turn a cool, modern look into a weirdly faux aged look!
