Elegant antique rugs from Persia have found their way into homes of the nobility for many centuries. They add elegance and sophistication to any room, and we love their bright colors and traditional designs. Now, interior designers love them, and they continue to be an important part of traditional and transitional design styles, but they are also becoming a central part of contemporary design.

There is a growing trend in contemporary design towards multifunctional spaces that serve different purposes throughout the day. Many have found themselves transitioning areas of their living room into a home office or setting aside space in an open-plan space for dining or sleeping. In response to these trends, furniture that can serve multiple purposes continues to grow in popularity. The design of modern furniture is simple and functional. It draws inspiration from mid-century modern furniture pieces with minimalist legs and open space underneath. These new furniture designs require a rug that can also transition as the function of the room changes.
