As we ring in the second decade of the 21st century (and a new leap year!), the timing couldn’t be more perfect for bringing something fresh to our home interiors. Where to start? At the center of any well-curated room is a stylish rug and one of the best jumping-off points when making updates.
If intricate patterns, rich colorways, and inimitable craftsmanship are your decorative jam, all the while wanting to stay current, try looking for rug styles that mix traditional textile designs with modern elements and colorways to add something new and unexpected to your room’s aesthetic. With this in mind, we’ve rounded up nine of our favorite Ruggable rugs from our Modern Traditional Rug Collection.
The ancient Greek city of Delphi was the muse for our Delphina Delft Blue Rug. Woodblock-style printing and a bicolor scheme give its traditional floral motif a simple yet elevated look. This sophisticated style, tinted in delft blue that’s reminiscent of 17th-century porcelain, is also available in black and white.
When Persian rug design meets suzani’s ornate floral motif, the result is Samira Suzani Imari Rug. This suzani rug features a bed of botanicals surrounded by highly stylized floral elements in coriander, wine red, and steel blue. It also boasts a beautiful texture and sheen that will complement any floor. Explore its other color variations, ivory blue and raspberry.
Named after the Arabic word for “a beautiful vision,” this rug is inspired by the designs of gabbeh rugs, which are handmade Persian rug traditionally woven by Qashqai weavers in Iran. Just like gabbeh, Damali offers a subtle design, with simple linework and minimal composition complemented by rich fields of color. This design is also available in blue overdye, charcoal, and black and white.
This rug is inspired by traditional handwoven rugs that chronicled the nomadic lives of the Qashqai people. Aside from its hexagon and diamond shapes, tinted in rich hues of wine, crimson, and terra cotta, the design also features tiny hand-drawn details, including four-legged figures of Iran’s endangered animals.
This rug is also available in paprika red.
Leelu Blue Overdye Rug simplifies the highly stylized patterns and rich colors of traditional Caucasian rugs. Featuring an intricate network of geometric lines and shapes, softened by airy hues of slate blue and neutral grey, this rug perfectly suits any modern interior. For a more pared-down style, look for this design in black and white.
Named after the word “Noori,” a type of woven rug, our Noorani Sumac Rug adds just the right decorative element to jazz up your home. True to the style of traditional Persian rugs, this rug features a repeated diamond motif with modern geometric borders, enlivened by rich and randomized colors of red, grey and charcoal. See this design in other colorways of teal blue and vintage red.
In Galician, Herdanza means “heritage,” which inspired the name of our Herdanza Black and White Rug as well as the richness of its design. The modernity of the geometric pattern, hand-drawn to suggest texture, pairs nicely with the fringe tassels that gives this motif a traditional handwoven look. Rendered in subdued hues of grey and pearl, this versatile rug is a perfect complement to wood, metal, and stone. For a dash of color, look for this design in blue overdye.
Inspired by the art of hand embroidery, the Prado Rug is beautifully designed to add a burst of color to any room. The botanical motif uses bright hues of marigold and teal that pop against the grey background, with each stitch individually hand-drawn to give the impression of embroidery done by hand. This design is also available in blue.
